Eric Fortune

Opens Friday July 9th 6-9pm

Roq La Rue kicks off summer with a new show by two extraordinary painters. 
Pop Surrealist elder statesman Glenn Barr takes over the gallery with his first major exhibition in several years, entitled "Small Epics". Barr creates a carnivalesque dystopia rendered in smoggy ochres and inky blues depicting mythical gods and goddesses recast in a bombastic, rock and roll glamour worthy of a post apocalyptic world.

Upcoming star Eric Fortune returns to the gallery with three new labor intensive paintings, including a two works on paper and one on canvas. His dreamy, slightly foggy paintings are equal parts exquisite beauty and dark, erotic subtext.

We hope you can join us for the opening on July 9th!
