INTERACTIVE SCULPTURAL PAINTINGS BY ARTIST WILLIAM JOHN CALNAN III MAKES DEBUT IN NAPA VALLEY   Callnan’s newest work “SUBLIME TRANSITIONS” comprises of two distinctly different and yet interconnected groups of painting and sculpture. Each of the vastly detailed and kinetic sculptural and mixed media paintings explore the cyclical nature of  –TRANSITION as perceived by Callnan’s refreshing, cleverly satirical and confrontational approach. His point refers to “destructive creationism –  to eliminate passive viewing and engage the viewer in an entertaining and thought provoking participation with the works.”   In contrast, SUBLIME - the sensuousness of the highly glossed, monochromatic bottle forms and meteorbs which consist of hundreds of high fired, hand formed ceramic sculpture, create an exciting and beautiful dreamlike element that successfully connects to and balances the high pitched, roller coaster dive feelings that Transition reveals and that Callnan excels superbly in expressing with his works. The debut solo exhibition, “SUBLIME TRANSITIONS” , opens Friday the 13th of June, 20087-10 PM at G Studio, with an “ interactive ” reception in Napa  The show continues, by appointment until June 11th.    G Studio, The North Bay Experts Supporting Emerging Fine Artists, is located at 421 Walnut Street, Suite 212, Napa, California. 707-320-8868
