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.

Danielle Steel is no stranger to San Francisco’s art scene. In fact, the renowned bestselling author curates a show every year at Andrea Schwartz Gallery in the SOMA district. This year’s installment is only a day away.
Titled WORD, this group exhibition includes Greg Gossel, Cara Barer, Patrick Dintino, Mitch Jones, Jack Balas, BEN, Ian Everard, Sofia Harrison, Wes Hempel, Jerry Kunkel, Samuel Messer and Wendy Robushi. The opening reception will be held Wednesday, August 5th, from 5:30-7:30pm.
We love these words from the curator herself:
“WORD. The very sound of it is such a strong message. There is so much contained in that single word. So much you can express with words. I’ve always been fascinated with paintings that have text in them, and enamored with both worlds: art and the written word. One is my passion, and the other a lifelong career, and what could be better than blending the two.
We have combined both elements in this show, and sought out artwork that includes text in the body of the work. It gives the art yet another dimension. So we bring you the beauty of the art…. and the power of the WORD.” -Danielle Steel
The title “Happy Endings” was presumably misunderstood before these preview shots came into our hands. The weight of Greg Gossel‘s new show is much more apparent based on the images below, and we can’t wait to see what else is in store for The Shooting Gallery this June.
