August 6th, 5 – 9 (closing reception)
Happy / Sad, Opens July 8 – Aug 6th, 2016
MARKET in Silver Lake – 612 Silver Lake Blvd., LA CA 90026
Join MARKET Saturday August 6th, 5 – 9pm for the closing reception to the highly amusing and critically exclaimed collection of Smiley paintings and other related works by JonMarc Edwards. Happy / Sad began as a set piece installation for the performance of d-i-g, showcased at MARKET July 8th. The installation expanded thereafter with an acute awareness to the famous Samuel Beckett quote, “Ever tried, Ever failed, No matter, Try again, Fail again.” Happy / Sad spans the emotional landscape from the cheerfully unconcerned to the mordantly provocative. The archived performance of d-i-g will also be available for viewing.
