Bret Philpot’s October-1 show, “Reverberation,” is Ted Casablanca Gallery’s very first one-artist show. Hooray! We couldn’t be more proud to have local painter and sculptor Philpot’s musically inspired collection, a study of the translation of sound onto surfaces in a language he understands.Read More

Apparently, a lot of folks.
Jim Cox’s fiercely scaled photograph, “JT Muscles Out a Thought Or Two: Don’t Make Me Hard or I’ll Crack,” has been a watershed of intense reaction for TCG, all over the emotional map. Shock. Delight. Envy. Distaste. Everything an exacting artist should require from his or her audience (in my mind).Read More
