Quint Projects is pleased to announce the opening of GIVE ME A MINUTE, I’M THINKING, an eclectic exhibition of collectibles curated by Mark Quint opening at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library (La Jolla, CA) on November 11 and continuing through the end of 2016.
Quint, a San Diego based art dealer will organize the exhibition around art, found objects, graphic design and his personal diverse group of collectibles. Including religious sculpture, tourist tchotchkes, tattered taxidermy, Afghan blankets, butterflies / bugs, vintage photographs and his collection of indoor house plants.
Quint went to the San Francisco Art Institute in the early 1970's, taught art in Hawaii until 1980, and opened his first gallery in San Diego in 1981. He has organized over 250 exhibitions by local, national and international artists and has built out thirteen different gallery spaces in San Diego. The latest space is in Rose Canyon, an industrial complex between La Jolla and Pacific Beach off of Interstate 5, which features gallery and project spaces. He is an avid, worldwide flea market participant who has been collecting (primarily vintage oddities) for the past 20 years. Quint says:
“I believe there is a world of interest in most objects if you look close enough. Paying attention is an exercise for your eyes, it fine tunes your esthetic muscles and visual intelligence. It's what looking at art is all about.”
