Greg Gossel‘s current solo exhibition at Aqua Art Miami shows a mix of new and old styles. Departing from his usual pop color palette, Gossel simplified his new screenprint/collage pieces by limiting himself to black and white. His eight new canvases are clearly in line with his usual style but their lack of color allows the imagery to speak even more boldly. With a more documentary feel, you might imagine these works as advertisements pasted on a New York City wall or torn from a yellowed newspaper.
Below are selected works from the exhibition (which can be viewed in its entirety here). If you are in Miami this week, stop by Aqua Wynwood’s Booth 20 before tomorrow, December 5th to experience a new side to Greg Gossel.
Tomorrow marks the opening of Miami’s Aqua Wynwood art fair where galleries, artists, and collectors venture from all over the world to share their love of art. Greg Gossel has been in the spotlight this year, as he was elected by the Aqua committee to create a large scale mural on the building facade. He came prepared with a fresh collection of wheat paste images to create a larger than life collage reminiscent of his signature works on canvas and wood.
Gossel is also making a splash indoors with a solo exhibition that includes 14 pieces in color and 8 new canvases in black and white. Aqua Art calls for a venture into new territory, and Greg has lived up to his name with these dynamic new works. Exhibition details below:

We are also happy to have the artists Morgan Slade, Casey Gray, Aaron Nagel, Ramblin Worker, and Jesse Hazelip in Miami with us. We appreciate their efforts to be here, showing devotion to their craft and support of the gallery. Stay tuned for updates and we hope to see you in Miami this week!
Last Saturday’s event at The Shooting Gallery was a great success. Central City Hospitality House mounted a beautiful show for their 6th Annual Urban Art Silent Auction drawing in a pack of eager buyers. We broke records this year with over $6,000 worth of art going out the door, all of which benefits the Hospitality House’s Community Arts Program. Lucky buyers walked away with pieces by Joshua Petker, Ramblin Worker, Jesse Hazelip, and Greg Gossel among others.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the local community, and to the generous artists that donated their time and talent for the cause.
No plans tonight? The Shooting Gallery promises to keep you entertained from 6-10pm with its 6th Annual Urban Art Silent Auction. Art for the House benefits the Central City Hospitality House, a wonderful organization that aids the Tenderloin’s homeless community.
The good folks of Hospitality House came in to hang the auction pieces today, and we dutifully snapped some shots for you. Click below to see works by Greg Gossel, KMNDZ, Fanee, Adam Flores, Ramblin Worker, Bryan Schnelle, and others.
Be sure to stop by tonight from 6-10pm to snag yourself a pretty something for your bare walls and support the local community. Click through these teasers for inspiration.

It’s been a busy summer for Greg Gossel, as his massive 60 piece show at The Shooting Gallery just came down and a brand new show is already up. Last Saturday marked the opening of Get Over It, a group show including Greg Lamarche and Steve Powers at Toronto’s Show & Tell Gallery.
We appreciate the diversity in Greg Gossel’s work, as each show is entirely unique in subject matter yet consistent in style. Browse the links below for further coverage of Greg’s summer projects.

We were excited to welcome Ken Harman to The Shooting Gallery last Saturday when he came to preview Greg Gossel and AJ Fosik‘s new shows. He got some great pictures of the guys and their artwork, and we think that getting signed showcards for Arrested Motion readers was a fantastic idea.
