In August 2014, Cohn Drennan Contemporary celebrates the print and the makers of prints. The gallery will host an exhibition of University of Texas at Arlington students who challenge general interpretations of what a print is, and re-define what a print does. David Diaz, Erica Guajardo, Gary Joe Uribe, Seth Victorious and Syd Webb each confront their audiences with issues that address the academics and the politics of the multiple.
The gallery will also host a Pool Print Fair, August 16, 4:00 – 9:00 pm for student, street and underground purveyors of affordable prints. This will be a celebration of prints and an opportunity for guests and clients to encounter new art and artists, and stock up on reasonably priced works of art.
Throughout the month, special selections of works from the gallery’s inventory will be made available to the public for viewing and purchase. The majority of these prints have not been presented to clients or collectors, but PRINTS!PRINTS!PRINTS! seems like the right time and place.

Week 8, 8 Weeks of Art and Madness
This week we have Avida, directed by Gustave de Kervern and Benoit Delepine
With Cameos by Surrealist film director Fernando Arrabal, and French thriller Maestro, Claude Chabrol, Avida cryptically dissects the name that Andre' Breton gave to Salvador Dali as an insult, Avida Dollars, and though actually a kind of black comedy, somehow returns to Dali his role as that of Spiritual Revolutionary, but not until after a disgruntled dog-trainer sets his art-collector boss's home on fire and runs amok in high end restaurants, then kidnaps a dog with zookeeper ketamine addicts, etc.. Avida is part Monty Python, part Jacques Tati, and has some very odd and contagious music.
