Glenn Barr Solo Show @ 323East

Glenn Barr is one of the few artists around whose "juvenilia" excites as much interest (and cash) as his most current works. If you were a regular customer at some of the better independent record, book, and magazine stores that thrived around here back in the day ... well, you know what we're talking about.

But those days are definitely back in the past. Barr is acknowledged now as one of the most accomplished painters to arise phoenix-like from Detroit's underground milieu. He's been profiled and praised in Juxtapoz and Hi Fructose; found a welcome niche in the demanding field of graphic novels; and contributed a skillful hand to animated features and videos. Bjork and Woody Woodpecker on the same resume? Not bad!

And now he'll be the focus of his first Detroit solo show in seven years. Right here where it all started. On October 28, at 6pm, 323East will give up its walls to Glenn Barr and showcase a near decade's worth of original works and prints. You'll be able to see and judge for yourself how a Detroit original has taken a unique vision of the world and made it even more colorful and dynamic.

New works and prints from the past for sale and on display @ 323East from October 28th - November 27th.
