On View: June 9 – June 30, 2012
Regular Gallery Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 11-5pm
Get hooked this summer on a heavy dose of ocular candy as WWA Gallery (http://www.WWAgallery.com) and Dave MacDowell presents Wasted, a most intoxicating tribute exhibit about “being under the influence.”
Throughout history, from Van Gogh to Kurt Cobain, mind-altering substances have always had a symbiotic and torturous relationship with the Arts. As both muse and disease, they can be the catalyst for creativity while simultaneously destructive to the maker.
Wasted is a tongue-in-cheek yet candid look at our complex relationship with drugs and alcohol through eye stimulating contributions by over 70 fine artists and creative professionals. Nothing was deemed off-limits or taboo, we only requested they "paint responsibly."
WWA Gallery has partnered with local eateries Rush Street, City Tavern, Backstage Bar and Grill, and Rocco's Tavern to put together a one-of-a-kind Wasted Pub-Crawl for patron’s to score deals on original artwork!
Participating establishments have specials available to our collectors from 3-7pm on the day of the opening (Saturday June 9). All one has to do is visit a few of them and show us your receipts at the opening reception of Wasted to be eligible for our show incentives:
• 3 receipts gets you 10% off of any ‘Wasted’ artwork.
• 4 receipts gets you 15% off of ‘Wasted’ artwork PLUS 10% off of any artwork in our inventory.
