Exhibit of ‘surveillance paintings’ up at Denver’s Plus Gallery tonight

William Betts comes out of Houston, and paints kind of ┬álike Monet, if Monet was very paranoid and suspicious and also alive: big, grey-black canvases of what look like surveillance photos – hence the term ‘surveillance paintings’ – rendered in a pointillist style that makes everything depicted seem hazy and sinister. There’s an opening reception tonight at Plus Gallery from 6 to 8, which are usually fun, and the show itself is going to run through May 26. So, seriously, even if you can’t stand openings and would rather run through a shower of thumbtacks than go to one, you’ll still have your chances to check out Betts’ unsettling brushwork. And you should. (FULL ARTICLE: Ray Mark Rinaldi, The Denver Post)
