Here's the press release: - Meta Gallery is pleased to present Fear Hope and Love, an exhibition of works on canvas by Mark Henson. In his first solo exhibition with the gallery, as well as his first in Canada, the artist explores highly relevant themes in today’s socio-political climate. Through these detailed and intricate narrative works, a story unfolds, one where the antagonist becomes the heroin as we realize that even though we may be the problem, we are also the only solution.

Mark Henson was born in 1952 in San Mateo, California. He has been involved in artistic creation since his high school days in Sacramento where he was fortunate enough to attend classes by notable artists Mel Ramos and Ken Waterstreet. Mark went on to receive a degree in art from the University of California, Davis, where he studied with Wayne Thiebaud, Roy DeForest and Roland Peterson. He also maintains a rustic artist's retreat and studio in Monteverde, Costa Rica. He has been working primarily with oils all his life, but has also spent time as a gallery owner, world traveler, graphic designer and fine craftsman. He enjoys painting live before the public at art and musical events, and has also been commissioned for Rock Poster design and set decoration. His work has appeared in institutions such as the American Visionary Art Museum as well as countless gallery exhibitions. Mark has appeared as a featured speaker at the Mindstates and other conferences, and enjoys organizing local and traveling group exhibitions in conjunction with a group of like-minded artists.

Fear Hope and Love will be on view from October 23 to December 23, 2009. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11-6 and Sunday from 12-5. The opening reception will be on Friday October 23 from 7-10pm. Artist in attendance.
