    Guerrero Gallery: Copypasta - William Emmert, Adam Beris, Isaac Vazquez Avila

    Comment by AB: William Emmert sculpts the most ordinary everyday objects so well, you think they're real. Adam Beris applies paint like toothpaste in eminently entertaining ways. Isaac Vazquez Avila rounds things out with his scrappy sculptural abstractions.
