Mighty Fine Arts presents Caliber Exertion featuring new work by Preston Bradley. This show opens Sat March 7 with a reception for the artist from 6-9pm and will run till Sun April 5th. Preston Bradley’s characters emerge from a wide swath of social interaction.  Boozers, business suits, tramps, rednecks and loose women are all gist for his fevered imagination. These folks are plainly familiar cause they are us, ordinary and overlooked and unheralded but somehow possessed with inherent distinction and dignity of absurd purpose. Mr. Bradley’s Tennessee upbringing informs his work with a Southern perspective, a bit askew and inclined toward dark humor and sweat and grease. He is also a recently bonafied Master Printmaker so declared by the “Fine Art” authorities at UNT. It’s to his credit that his printmaking looks to be carved out by a chainsaw, raw and unrefined and yielding up some awesome truth.
