It was a great opening, and from what I hear there was a pretty good turn out of people. Taken from 323East Gallery's website:
Befitting the originality of his talent, Matt Eaton is not the easiest artist to bracket or place within a particular genre. He is a master of abstract visuals, using the often overlooked elements of everyday existence to fashion works of subtle charm and undeniable beauty. However, an Eaton painting is anything but passive. His canvases have a muted boldness with lines and colors that seem to coil their strength until they become visible to the eyes of a patient viewer. Think of a charge of dynamite or gunpowder carefully primed for a fuse; the explosion comes when you catch the hitherto undetected fire beneath the cool surface. Eaton is always suggesting that we look and look closely at everything. That's pretty valuable advice.
Overall, it was a pretty fun evening. I like going to events that are out of my normal routine. It's nice to shake it up a little, and how can you beat a free event that's close by and serves free wine? I really don't know.
