From kitsch and Margaret Keane’s Big Eyes, to Japanese anime and contemporary Pop Art, we’re unleashing the roly-poly, goofily-gamboling, saccharine-honeyed creatures on this earth and beyond!  Sweet n Low is part invitational and part juried exhibition, juried by Evan Pricco of Juxtapoz magazine and Antler Gallery, Portland, OR.

The Pattern Room


Hand-painted props overtake a wall with pattern and sweetness. The girlish whimsy of pinks and saccharine decorative marks gives way to sardonic text and lonely pinups and portraits. "I’m hoping for a kind of stifling, claustrophobic saccharine space, intimating that maturing into my gendered role was not all I’d hoped for or all I was promised.. " -Kirstin Lamb

Opening Reception: Friday October 2nd, 7-10pm
On view 10/2-10/31
Visit the Gallery Sundays, 12-4PM or by appointment

Love and Loss : Fashion and Transience at the Lentos Kunstmuseum, Linz, Austria

Fashion and Mortality

13 March to 7 June 2015

In the 1980s new content and a revolutionary new aesthetic made their first appearance in the world of Western fashion. Features such as the search for authenticity, melancholy as a pervasive attitude, and bold formal experiments had been exclusively reserved to the fine arts until then. Now they were taken up by fashion. Martin Margiela, Rei Kawakubo and other outstanding designers subjected the concept of beauty in fashion to a radical makeover, where deformation and wear and tear become exciting stylistic devices. The torn jeans that are a staple of mainstream fashion these days first saw the light of day in designs by Maison Martin Margiela and Comme des Garçons. Fashion becomes a mirror in which we come face to face with our own mortality. It emphasizes the traces of time, praises transience and flirts with death.

A great number of exhibits on loan from international museums and studios substantiate moments between the 1980s and today, in which fashion and the art inspired each other. The exhibition celebrates beauty and the abyss, poetical moments and black humour. It presents fashion designers together with exponents of the visual arts, High Fashion and Street Fashion, photographs, videos, sculptures and installations. The majority of exhibits has never before been seen in Austria.
