Local artist Jeff Musser is perhaps best known as the guy who painted Oprah Winfrey’s dog. Excellent though that may be, there is quite a bit more to Musser and his work. Musser paints like a motherfucker. His technique is outstanding and underneath the fluid brushwork there is a simmering intensity that draws the eye into the work. The guy not only paints, he thinks. That’s why we booked him to show his recent body of work at MidMo this month.

Turns out we aren’t the only ones who have been following Musser’s career. Musser’s on the cover of SNR’s d’Art section this week, and Josh Fernandez had this to say about Musser’s latest work: “With miraculous attention to color and composition, Musser paints realism that is at once melancholy but full of insight. His latest series, Body of Work, attempts to make sense of this tattoo-obsessed generation.” (for the whole review click here.)

Midmo Gallery is at 1719 25th Street (25th and R) and is open on Second Saturday from 6 – 10 PM. I know it’s Valentine’s Day, but remember- art is romantic, and a cheap date!
