TWO MAJOR ARTISTS WRITE A “CALL TO THE ART WORLD” CREATING CONTROVERSY OVER GEORGE GALLO’S LOCAL COLOR
The surprise success of Local Color test screenings has created a phenomenon in the art community. Following a private screening at the Warner Brothers theater in Los Angeles, nationally renowned artists Tony Pro and Jeremy Lipking have begyn circulating a letter around the blogospheres and art organizations rekindling the debate and controversy over the battle between modern and representational art. Audiences across the country have championed Local Color calling attention to the utter ridiculousness of modern art. The jig is up. The letter, in its entirety, and signed, is copied below:
“Greetings in art! I am contacting you about an exciting event occurring in the world of representational art. Hollywood writer/director George Gallo (Midnight Run, Bad Boys) has made a film loosely based on his life about becoming a painter and the trials and tribulations he went through to train with a Russian master. This film has been picked up by Empire Film Group (ticker: EFGU), and is coming to theaters on November 7th.
The core principle of the film is based around making people see the RELEVANCE of Representational Art and calls to attention the ridiculousness of the Modern Art movement. Through the Oscar worthy performance of Armin Mueller-Stahl, we see a Russian master painter who speaks the truth about what Modern Art has done to the world of Representational Art. Any of this sound too familiar?
I am TIRED of walking into places like Los Angeles County Museum of Art or the Metropolitan Museum of Art and find that they have taken down another Sargent or Rembrandt and replaced it with a piece of Modern a“Art”. The studios wouldn’t touch this film because it didn’t have sex and drugs and they don’t see the relevance of Representational Art. Well, my friends, we are relevant and we are here to stay. This is our champion piece for our cause to start moving Representational Art forward and make it relevant to the masses.
This movie has something for everyone to discover, especially the modern artist. It’s a heartwarming story that will touch your soul.
