Country Club, now located on the second floor above the high-end design store Voltage in Oakley, is exhibiting a large number of paintings by Aaron Morse in Kingdom of Nature. His works are joined by a bright collection of ceramic works by the duo Katie Parker and Guy Michael Davis, which, all things considered, works well.  

Morse, who was born in Tucson, Ariz., and now resides in Los Angeles, earned his MFA from the University of Cincinnati in 1998. His works are painting/print combos where collage and watercolor paint have been worked across the fronts of pages and canvases that have been printed with images. The pictures are seemingly appropriated from sources as diverse as natural-history illustrations, comic books and the washy pulp-novel illustrations that are very trendy right now.

The show will be on view 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday through Dec. 19. Get show details and read Matt Morris' review here.
