Solo Show in Baltimore

I have been so terribly busy packing and moving ( in addition to two back to back solo exhibits) that I've not been updating my blog as often as I usually do. I'll get back on track soon. In the interim, here is part of the digital Press Release regarding my show that opens today in Baltimore.
Light Street Gallery Baltimore



Nationally Acclaimed Artist Michael SprouseWith an opening reception scheduled for Saturday, October 22 from 6 - 9 PM, the Light Street Gallery presents the much anticipated solo exhibit by artist Michael Sprouse entitled "Ex Post Facto".

This important show marks Sprouse's first
solo exhibition
with the Light Street Gallery and already it's being called a "don't miss" exhibit by the Baltimore Sun.

Sprouse is renown for his haunting works which he models after
the empyrean facial expressions found in the subjects of vintage portrait
photography. Sprouse's work can be found in private and public collections
across the United States, Europe, Canada, and South America.

These neo-romanticism examples of some of Sprouse's work have been called
"evocatively beautiful" and "mesmerizing" by art critics and collectors
around the globe. Some collectorÂ’s of SprouseÂ’s work include Academy
Award winning director Quentin Tarrantino, Best Selling author David
Lozelle Martin, Daniel H. Schulman - President of Priceline.com ,
and César Gaviria Trujillo - former President of Colombia and Secretary
General of the Organization of American Sates
.
'
The exhibit focuses on the enigmatic imagery Sprouse incorporates into his "contemporary narrative portraits" and features works that date from 1999 - 2005 including examples of his work from "The Ireland Show" as well as from his "Ethereal Visitation" series, of which have currently been brought into reproduction by the famous Fine Art publishing company of Ariel Of France.
'
In this exhibit, Sprouse accents the mystery, drama - as well as playfulness-
that enrich and empower the subjects of his works as they peer from underneath the brims of hats or across the room.

These figures silently speak volumes about love, desire, loss, lust and more.

An opening reception with Sprouse will be held at the Light Street
Gallery in Baltimore, MD on Saturday, October 22, from 6:00 - 9:00

The Light Street Gallery is located at
1448 Light Street Baltimore, MD 21230 and can be contacted via phone
at 410-234-0047 or via email atinfo@LightStreetGallery.com.
