Frank Mitchell and Sylvia Bews-Wright
Oct. 6 to 28, 2012
Monsters is an art show that continues the tradition of the political cartoon by using art as a form of political commentary. Paintings of various dictators, tyrants and politicians will be on display. Monsters will provides art lovers with examples of how art can be both creative and politically critical. Mitchell and Bew-Wright make political art because each sees it as a valuable form of protest. Bews-Wright noted, “My motivation is to make viewers test their own sense of history and personal responsibility…we are all complicit when we do nothing.”
Opening party is Saturday, October 6th at 1pm.
