In Place Opening Reception!
From the peaks of the world’s tallest mountains to underwater limestone caves, imagined islands and extravagant gardens to the thousands of temples lined up across the land, Light Grey Art Lab’s newest exhibition features illustrations of the most sublime, intimate, and experiential places on earth. In Place includes work by fifty concept artists and illustrators who have taken on these wondrous and mysterious lands, making work about the places that inspire us to create and yearn for the unknown.
Come get lost in the Bavarian Forest, the imaginary island of Thule, and the unexplored terrain of the Chiang Mai Jungle. Explore some of the most hidden, surprising, and awe-inspiring landscapes in the world.
Not only is there 50 pieces amazing, large scale work by concept artists and illustrators with clients like Disney, Pixar, Nickelodeon, Blizzard Entertainment and more, but there's also an amazing companion book that collects all the work into one beautiful package, which will be debuting at the reception!
The opening reception is Friday, August 23rd, 7 PM - 10 PM. Join us for art, music, food and drinks. This will be the first time the limited edition book will be available to the public, so make sure to pick one up for $25! It's filled with every amazing piece from the show, as well as a foreword by Arctic explorer and author, Lonnie Dupre.
