It is no secret that Worleygig.com is a huge fan and supporter of the Jonathan LeVine Gallery and that we try to attend and cover every show! So, it was lots of fun to find ourselves at the opening reception of The Color and The Fury group show, celebrating 10 Years of great art at Jonathan LeVine!

I’m not sure if ice cream treats were served at some point during the evening, but if they were it was after we left. In addition to an exhibit of selected works by LeVine-represented artists, one wall of the gallery is dedicated to a site-specific, shrine-like installation of memorabilia from past shows, oddball props and various likenesses of Jonathan LeVine himself created by artists like Mike Leavitt and Dan Witz — also very fun!

Speaking of Ice Cream Treats, here is a lifesize-ish cut out of Jonathan LeVine as an Ice Cream Sandwich!

The Many Faces of Jonathan LeVine!

JLG 10

The wall was full of little Tableaus like This One of Jonathan with his Fans, Friends and Supporters.

JL Shrine with Mason Jars

We enjoyed finding little reminders of shows past tucked among the many cards and mini shrines along the wall.

JL Grey Suit

I wish I could say that I remember what that Grey Suit was about, but I do not.

JL Spray Paint Cans

In honor of JLG’s dedication to and support of the Street Art of The World!

Blue Shelf With Red Jar

I wonder what is in that jar? Is it little Gummy Jonathans?

Don’t you want to go see all of this stuff in person after I have teased you mercilessly with my awesome photos? I know you do.
