Fine Art from Flies: John Knuth Opening at David B. Smith Gallery

knuthOn Friday, June 5 from 7-9 p.m., join John Knuth for the opening of “Nothing Without Providence.” The saying, better known as the Colorado state motto, also happens to be the name of the David B. Smith gallery exhibit—which is fine art made with fly vomit. That’s right, artist Knuth raises hundreds of thousands of common houseflies from the larval stage and feeds them a mixture of sugar and acrylic paint. The flies digest and regurgitate this mixture onto the paintings, leaving millions of flyspeck markings on the surface of each canvas.
