Art In The Dark!



The overpowering utilization of fluorescent color spans back decades. For some, it is an electrifying palette that taps into something deep within us; a sense of nostalgia, belonging, NOT belonging, rebellion, a sometimes even a spiritual parallel. For others, it’s trite, tacky nonsense that has no place on a wall beyond those of a juvenile delinquent.

Well this show ain’t for those squares! THIS is a collection the celebrates the tradition of the weird. From the wayback machine of the early 70’s flocked posters, to the modern times of creative employment, we’ve got it all to show! Toys, masks and original paintings from talent spanning the country join a modest print collection in this rich compilation in the 317 gallery, for your carousel and enjoyment!
Please join us to peruse and perhaps even take home a small part of forgotten history!

Free admission. Everyone welcome!

Coming Soon!  Guest Artist Jon Langford - Art & Music!
