Memories of art school.. drinking pbr and chain smoking, while trying to find the best way to attach chicken wire wings to a stuffed pony, how to describe the angst of youth in paint or pencil, pondering the usefulness of art history, suffering through critiques with a mean hangover, skipping class to play pool at the Rockhill Bar… we might not have had enough money for toilet paper, let alone rent, but we always had enough for PBR! This show is a tribute to our good friend and true love, who faithfully stands by us in good times and bad, our muse who inspires our creativity, to take the leap when we fear failure, to boldly contact that ex-lover at midnight for a booty-call ..ever gently whispering our ear that we are fabulous dancers, amazing lovers, creative geniuses, and could solve all the worlds problems if only we were asked…
Come celebrate True Blue love with us this upcoming First Friday: check out the fabulous art and fashion, have a few cold ones, get some cool PBR stuff, and dance to a couple of the funkiest bluegrass bands around!
