RAA To Feature Rawling In ‘Mixable Feast’
Well known multi-media artist Geoff Rawling’s launches a solo exhibition to tantalize and engage all the senses with A Mixable Feast: an A’L’Arte Menu of Delicious Events, opening 11 am, Sunday May 1st at the Rockaway Artists Alliance sTudio 7 at the Rockaway Center for the Arts (RoCA) at Fort Tilden. Starting with A Breakfast of Champignons and running from Brunch to Lunch to High Tea to Guess What’s Coming For Dinner? over the successive Sundays of May, Rawling weaves a show for all tastes featuring live and lively music, dance performance, spoken word, the dazzlingly colorful culinary arts and of course his own wide range of painting, sculpture and mixed media pieces.
Moving from the provocatively humorous to the quietly stunning, Rawling says of his own evolving artwork “I truly feel that I am now just beginning to produce my best work on my own terms. Always learning, developing, discovering, with the freedom to move in any direction…and hopefully remain ever interesting.”
