Mid-Century Watercolors By John Norment

383

This weekend is your last chance to check out the abstract watercolors and mid-century comics of John Norment on display at New Puppy Gallery in Cypress Park. The late artist’s work appeared in the New Yorker, The New York Times, in a series of humor books and even the cover of a jazz album recorded by the Tennessee native. The installation takes full advantage of the humor and color of Norment whose vivid colors pop off the gallery walls. A reversible cover is displayed in a rotating frame, a gag about clotheslines is hung on a wire, and his Peppermill Jazzband album is displayed in a ‘60s living room dominated by a massive hi-fi. Sit in this lounge, sip a cocktail and imagine how much funnier and stylish you’d be with one of these on your living room wall.
