Practice Makes Perfect at Twist Gallery


When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Aug. 28


Opening July 3 from 6-9 p.m.


A visit to Mitch O'Connell's website will have you thinking he's a first-class d-bag before his “World's Grooviest Artist” shtick goes right over-the-top and leaves you laughing. O'Connell is an illustrator whose work has appeared in The New York Times and Newsweek. O'Connell has penned everything from comic books to tattoo flash, but the work he'll display at Twist during the July Gallery Crawl will be a bit more “arty-farty” — his words, not ours. O'Connell's work owes a debt to both Coop and Robert Williams, but can you name an artist who depicts psychedelic bunnies, nude burlesque dancers and the floating, pipe-smoking head of J.R. “Bob” Dobbs who doesn't? Get to the gallery to check out what is sure to be a packed show, and then go home and enjoy your Hour of Slack. Praise “Bob”!
