Lansing Street Gallery is inviting you to its grand opening reception and solo exhibition of local artist, Toby Hill, on Saturday, July 10th, from 5 to 8pm.
As California begins to ease restrictions on gatherings and masks, the fitting exhibition of “Unveilings” by Toby Hill probes expressions through abstract portraits, figures and personas highlighting humanity’s essential mode of communication – the mouth. After more than a year of social distortion and concealment, Toby unveils the mouth and explores its relation to the human face. His paintings and drawings resonate his influence of the black and white line drawing with a sense of immediacy, rawness and whimsy.
This theme of unveiling aligns with the launch of Lansing Street Gallery. The co-owners of the gallery and Hill collaborated to feature “Unveilings” as part of the iconoclastic debut of a new center for artistic innovation in the storied history of Mendocino art culture.
