Give Me a Minute, I'm Thinking
“I believe there is a world of interest in most objects if you look close enough. Paying attention is an exercise for your eyes, it fine tunes your esthetic muscles and visual intelligence. It’s what looking at art is all about.” – Mark Quint
Quint Projects is pleased to announce an off-site exhibition at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. GIVE ME A MINUTE, I’M THINKING is an eclectic exhibition of collectables and art curated by MARK QUINT. An opening reception will be held on Friday, November 11, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Quint, a San Diego based art dealer will organize the exhibition around art, found objects, graphic design and his personal diverse group of collectibles. Including classic religious sculpture, tourist tchotchkes, tattered taxidermy, stacks of Afghan blankets, battered butterflies / bugs, old, found photographs, banal indoor house plants and 1970s swag lamps.
Quint went to the San Francisco Art Institute in the early 1970’s, taught art in Hawaii until 1980, and opened his first gallery in San Diego in 1981. He has organized over 250 exhibitions by local, national and international artists and has built out thirteen different gallery spaces in San Diego. The latest space is in Rose Canyon, an industrial complex between La Jolla and Pacific Beach off of Interstate 5, which features gallery and project spaces.
