Expect truly fine art, performance at exhibit opening

Fine-artist Douglass Truth returns to Nevada City, to the Mowen Solinksy Gallery, where his work is being exhibited, to introduce the exhibit with a multimedia show, “Death of a Salesman.”

His so-called “twin” sister, Dorothy, will appear in costume at the gallery opening reception to present “An Evening of Half-Truths,” stories about her “twin” brother.

Truth’s work features the Harlequin, a medieval trickster, and house interiors.

Explaining his fascination for interiors, Truth said, “I used to find abandoned farm houses in the fields and woods where I grew up in Indiana, and it was as if I could feel the lives of the families who’d lived there, as if the house itself remembered them. It was eerie.”

Truth will truthfully answer questions about his work, both fine and performance, at the gallery, located at 225 Broad St. The free evening Friday, April 6, begins at 6 p.m. Contact the gallery at 530-265-4682 or go to info@mowensolinskygallery.com.

The artist will also perform at St. Joseph’s Cultural Center in Grass Valley on Friday and Saturday, April 20 and 21.
