On Display: December 15, 2012 - April 15, 2013
The Gallery at Fox Tax, in conjunction with guest curator Hannah Frick, is pleased to announce a holiday opening party for it’s next group art exhibition, Post-Apocalyptic Blues: Tales from the Mayan Fiscal Cliff. For this holiday opening party, not only will the eight participating artists be presenting their end-of-the-worldly views via photo, sculpture, painting and other mediums, but they will also be donating small works that will be wrapped as gifts and sold sight unseen for $100. Proceeds from these gift sales will be given to the American Brain Tumor Association.
Post-Apocalyptic Blues features work by Laura Andrews, Elisa Berry Fonseca, DC Ice, Kyrié Kotlowski, Joshua Mercil, Katie Parr, Jon Reischl, and Jeremy Szopinski. At this point, various theories and beliefs that December 2012 will bring about an apocalypse of sorts are well known and pervasive. Talk of spiritual transformations, a new era, fiscal cliffs, pre-smartphone calendars and the ever-nearing end of the world dominates news, culture and conversation.
Artists in this exhibition encompass these ideas by exploring themes of survival, new realities, other worlds, and the afterlife. Approaches vary from seriousness to lightheartedness, from sadness to humor. Painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media are all represented in this eclectic group of work. Will this be the end or only just the beginning? See for yourselves if this exhibition survives the apocalypse (and tax season at Fox Tax).
