ICON OPENING / by Johnathan Ball

ICON, opened at Liss gallery on Saturday the 23rd.  It was my 4th solo show, my first sci-fi themed show, and my first plum/burgundy suit.  It was a wonderful event attended by close friends, gallery patrons, and collectors.

Being an artist is trying at times, it can be a lonely isolating endeavor.  Hours of work and torment are often met with contempt and indifference.  On very rare occasions however artists are treated to reactions deserving of their merit, Icon was one of these occasions.  I am so grateful to be surrounded by great friends who love what I do.  Thanks to everyone who came out to the opening and thanks to LIss Gallery for hosting it!  Ballevardier's for all.
