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

William Betts comes out of Houston, and paints kind of  like 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)
