Opening reception, Friday, October 15, 2010 from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m!!!

The exhibition is open to the public Monday, October 18 through Friday, October 22 from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

 Georgie Landy's statement:
"My artwork documents the environment around me. Using a disposable camera and unedited film, my photographs expose the nostalgic "shitty, but pretty" aesthetic that seems to generate around the lives of young people I encounter. From my environment, I collect trash and found objects based on color and shape, then, put together sculptures and paintings based on that reorganization."
William Ball 's statement:
"My work consists of separate attempts to document my views and experiences with lowbrow culture, and the relationship that it shares with mass culture. The struggles and fears of the general population to understand youth and counterculture are coped with visually through the means of photography and installation. The attempt to portray beauty through those pushed to the edges of our society is a constant struggle in the work. The cliche of a troubled youth is broken down, reassembled, and portrayed in a completely different manner than it would have been portrayed through the eyes of someone living within the boundaries of common society."
