Jonathan Hopson is thrilled to announce representation of Houston artist Bradley Kerl.
As the gallery sails into its second year as Jonathan Hopson, our exhibition program is gaining momentum as we add representation of new, dynamic artists. We have followed Kerl's trajectory since he began his MFA at the University of Houston seven years ago and look forward to working together to advance his practice and support him as his career rises.
"I have wanted to work with Bradley for an exhibition since the last year of his Master's Thesis when he had his Project Space exhibit on the fourth floor of the art building at U of H - it was an incredibly fun show of small tornado paintings," says director Jonathan Hopson, "so it was great to finally include him in a group show of other UH grads with us last summer. I couldn't be happier to be working with such a talented Houston painter!"
