Jesse Best and Jeremy Beightol at ModernFormations Tonight!

Part of this month's Unblurred is the rad opening of Jesse Best's and Jeremy Beightol's Satan is Real at ModernFormations (4919 Penn)! We love both Jeremy and Jesse's work and can't wait to see the new stuff that they are coming out with tonight. MF says:
Jesse Best and Jeremy Beightol participated in Modernformations 5th Annual Spring Salon: A Juried Exhibition at Modernformations Gallery and Performance Space in April 2009. Jesse Best received the ‘Best in Show’ award with the prize being an exhibition opportunity and representation. Jeremy and Jesse met in Erie several years ago. At that time, Jesse was finishing up his painting/film degree at Edinboro University and Jeremy was doing graphics for a skate company out west. In 2006, they participated in an exhibition in Chicago and a few more group shows in Erie. Jesse then moved to back to his home town of Pittsburgh to pursue a more serious art career. Since then, he has had two solo exhibits in Pittsburgh and three group shows in Philadelphia. Jeremy continued to exhibit in Erie and had a solo exhibit in New York City as well. In 2009, Jeremy moved to Pittsburgh. The artists reconnected when Jesse suggested they participate in the Spring Salon, which has led them to them to exhibiting together in “Satan is Real”.
