Memes 4 Lulz @ Eve N Odd Gallery

"For the Lulz"  is a popular web-derived catchphrase used to express that one carried out a specific action for the sake of personal comic enjoyment. Often this can involve offensive (or worse) content. This is a tiny show, even for a small gallery.

This is the show, and it requires the viewer to walk up close and personal to take in the art, which is one of the pleasures of a small, intimate gallery.

There are Fluxus and mail art pieces in this show. Many, but not all, are in a graphic style.

Naked mole rats don't get cancer, but they are nasty-looking. The picture used here (is that a rat octomom-to-be?) was certainly intended to be offensive. If they were only bigger, what great guard critters they would make.

That evening, Artpool was having one of their big parties and a fashion show. Gallery owner Jennifer Kosharek and her daughter Lulu modeled clothes from Eugenia Woods. They looked so beautiful.

 Congratulations to all the artists and Jennifer Kosharek for a show, that is a little thin on quantity, but good and well worth seeing in detail.
