The show New Ideas opens today!!! In less than an hour, actually. So if you live in the Lafayette area and are reading this, please consider coming to the reception. I know the weather is less than ideal, but I promise you it is warm and welcoming in the gallery. And if you need more convincing, here are 5 other reasons you should see this show ...
1. Andres Arizaga, a recent graduate from Purdue, is showing a series of drawings inspired by George Orwell's Animal Farm.
He also has a piece, The Journey Has Many Faces, that is an astute commentary on immigration issues we face in this country.
2. Aaron Molden is both an artist and a writer. His work, Family Portraits, is done on materials he collected in various places over the years.
3. Aaron Zernack has been at FoamCity since it reopened its doors. For this show, Aaron made some spectacularly mind-boggling op-art pieces.
In addition, there are 9 limited edition, signed and numbered rObOxes, and some retro-looking advertising that go with them.
is a video. You have to come in to see it! :)
