Bradley Chriss creates a series of fantastical, apocalyptic watercolors in Visions from the End of the World, Flashpoint Gallery's first exhibition in the 2009-2010 season. Intimately scaled (each work is approximately 10 x 4 inches) and vibrantly colored, the paintings seduce the viewer into confronting scenes that are at once grotesque and serene.

Visions from the End of the World opens Friday, September 11 from 6-8pm.
The exhibition opening will feature a cabaret with performances from the Post-NeoAbsurdist Anti-Collective in the premiere of
