Local artist Andrew Schoultz has been busy gearing up for a big show entitled “In Gods We Trust” that opens Sep. 4 at the Marx Zavattero Gallery in SF, near Union Square.

From the press release:

"In Gods We Trust," Andrew Schoultz’s first solo exhibition at Marx & Zavattero in San Francisco, will be a tour de force encompassing an expansive group of two- and three-dimensional works. Against the backdrop of Schoultz’s densely painted mixed media paintings on panel and paper will be large-scale painted sculptures — including scales of justice, splintered telephone poles, and debris of broken bridges — installed throughout the gallery. Schoultz will create a frenzied walk-through experience, placing the viewer inside the work virtually as a participant, and translate his ideas into a theater of chaos that speaks to the multifarious global issues that plague the world today.

"In Gods We Trust" opens on Thu., Sep. 4, 5:30p.m.-7:30p.m. Show runs all the way through Oct. 25. Marx Zavattero, 77 Geary Street (between Grant and Kearny streets), S.F. For info: (415)627-9111, or www.marxzav.com.
