The gallery is pleased to announce its representation of national artist
collective, Okay Mountain
http://www.markmoor egallery. com/artists/ okay-mountain/

comprised of ten members from Austin (TX), Los Angeles (CA), Chicago (IL), and Cambridge (MA).

Originating as an artist-run alternative gallery space, Okay Mountain:
http://www.markmoor egallery. com/artists/ okay-mountain/, evolved into an
artist collective when its founding members began creating art together
outside of the gallery environs. What began as collaborative drawing
sessions during weekly staff meetings has since developed into a wide
ranging practice, including drawing, video, sound, performance, prints,
zines, murals, and large-scale sculptural installations. Their shared
artworks reveal the unique perspective provided by a group dynamic, give
emphasis to drawing and the artist’s hand, and are always leavened by a
sense of humor, whimsy, and larger-than- life Texan spirit. The collaborative
repackages, reconstitutes and rekindles our consumerist desires with a
sardonic edge. Their installations and multi-media assemblage works mimic
the stock vernacular of our communal materialism, yet tweak them just enough
to reveal our superficial insecurities and convictions.

With new works currently on view at the gallery in Ultrasonic VI:
