Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9 from 3pm to 6pm
Art Matters Gallery, in collaboration with Pizzeria Paradiso and Graft, presents In-Cider Art, a solo show by Caleb Luke Lin offering an up-close look at the illustrated labels of Graft Cider beginning September 6 through October 2, 2017.
The artwork of Graft Cider portrays the travels of the character Nomad with a storybook vibe that allows the viewer to let their imagination fill in the blanks of the plot. It invokes a childlike desire to daydream of adventure, drawing influences from the real world, sci-fi, and fantasy.
Lin is a Baltimore-based illustrator. He graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a B.F.A in Illustration in 2012. Art mediums like screenprinting, textiles, and map illustrations strengthened Lin’s ability to “use artwork as a more literal way of conveying information and to better utilize visual patterns and layering in a productive way.”
- Monday through Friday: 10am to 6pm
- Saturdays: 10am to 2pm
