Gary Dobry will exhibit new paintings made of, and with, actress/writer/film-maker, Brenda Venus in a show titled "Life After Ed Paschke and Henry Miller". Dobry was a life-long friend and apprentice to world famous artist, Ed Paschke. Writer Henry Miller mentored Brenda Venus when Miller was in his eighties and Venus was still a very young woman. Miller's over 3,000 love letters to Venus were published by William Morris in a compilation titled, "Dear, Dear, Brenda". In the body of work to be exhibited at Packer Schopf, Dobry and Venus celebrate finding their own artistic voices after Paschke and Miller, and they join those voices to sing their praise.
