But it was the art I was there for - eight stories of it (plus a stage on the ground floor). Unjuried art shows can, of course, be hit or miss. There is, inevitably, somebody who thinks it is amusing to pull out their 3rd grade finger paintings and claim that displaying them is an antidote to the pretenses of the art world. Fortunately, there is a also a lot of talent out there.
I won't attempt to list everything I liked, but here are a few links for your enjoyment:
Caitlin Phillips - handbags made out of Nancy Drew (and other) books.
Emily Locke - photography
Forrest McCluer's computer viruses (representations of human viruses made from computer parts
Tim Tate - glass reliquaries, some with video in them
Eileen Williams - fabric art incorporating faces of women
Lisa Osgood-Dano - glass panels with intriguing textures
Mishka Jaeger - representations of musical scores with found objects and collage
Of course, not every artist I liked has a useful (or any) web site. For example, Anne Benolken, of Montgomery College had wonderful pictures of the Indian goddess Kali dealing with the irritations of everyday life. And David Alfuth's intricate three-dimensional etchings in a vaguely Gorey-esque style were intriguing.
There are times when I wish I had a huge house just so I could fill it with art.
