Blackbird Attic, a consignment boutique/gallery in Beacon, N.Y., is hosting an art show featuring artist Matt Cipov. The show, entitled We Are Masks, will open on Saturday, October 9th 2010 (opening reception 6PM to 9PM) and will run until November 12th.
The show highlights Cipov's fascination with the playful and secretive nature of masks, and the monsters they can represent. "Monsters and ghouls tend to pop up in every avenue of art I work in," says Cipov. "Beyond zombies and beasts, I give a lot of love to fringe animals like piranhas, jellyfish, and all sorts of strange birds."
