Where: Spindleworks Whatnot Gallery
When: June 7th-July 3rd, 2013
Reception: June 14th, 5-8pm
How does an artist orient themselves in our increasingly media-saturated world? What new visual conversations can be created by sifting through and rearranging the everyday artifacts of popular culture? Spindleworks artists take on these questions in ka-POW!!, a new show opening for June’s Second Friday Art Walk. Re-interpreting images shared through the media landscape has been an artistic approach since the mid-20th century, and the artist of Spindleworks are no exception. From Kevin Babine’s large scale works on paper featuring an array of cinematic history, to Melissa Capuano’s portraits of television show characters and Kelly Weingart’s sculptural renditions of Pez characters, KAPOW explores new iterations of seemingly familiar icons. Join us for the reception in conjunction with the Second Friday ArtWalk, June 14, 5-8pm.
