DESCRIPTION

An "F, U!" so graceful, swift, and sharp it isn't till later that you realize you've been cut to the bone. Manners. The double entendre.

Or is it all a mistake? Malopropism. I didn’t mean to end you. Or humiliate.

Mean girls is not a reference to a movie, it is a mode of being. We accept that stories have characters that assassinate character and characters. We justify our actions to ensure our position on the good people team. We care what you think of us even as we seek to destroy you.

Slow presents the work of 27 or 28 artists—all depends on how you count. Should be a rockin’ good time. Bring your thick skin. Prepare to laugh, or maybe cry. 

Artists include George Blaha, Poy Born, Laura Davis, Barbara DeGenevieve, Meg Duguid, Jason Dunda, Danica Favorito, Brent Garbowski, Max Garett, Karolina Gnatowski, John Henley, Andrew Holmquist, Michael Hunter, Chuck Jones, Vesna Jovanovic, Susan Kimball, Richard Kooyman, Jinn Bronwen Lee, Joe Mault, Melanie Parke, Caroline Picard, Laura Prieto-Valesco, Dave Richards, Steve Reber, Daniel Schmid, Mindy Rose Schwartz, and Ellis von Sternberg.

The opening reception is Saturday, September 8, 6-9 p.m.
The exhibition continues through September 29.


And don't forget about: the opening reception for Fix it if it ain't broke, Megan Powell and Brad Johns, Saturday, August 25, 6-9 p.m.
