When: JANUARY 15, 10 | 8pm
Info: The Shoebox Gallery is proud to present an informal reception for Jenny Jenkins's exhibit 'Signs for the New Year'. Her photographs of blank signs, made while roaming the USA indulge the pleasure of yellow plastic and red arrows,and also serve as harbingers for what the next decade might hold if we could just figure out to what they're pointing. Photographer, community gardener and proud resident of Powderhorn Park, Jenkins will be on hand to delight visitors with tales of Americana.
PLUS a recap/slideshow of the full week artist Sean Smuda spent at Art Basel, Miami. The highs, the lows, the trends, and the aesthetic staples. Stop by the Shoebox Gallery to see Jenny's show then buzz up to the Smuda Studio, for a meet and greet with the artist and an old timey slide show of the Postmodern.
