"What is it that is so intriguing about maps? Their ability to reveal what is too large to see, or too abstract to perceive is a nearly universal source of wonderment. Even though cartography is typically thought of as an objective, scientific process, the ability to exclude or display information reveals the inherent subjectivity associated with map-making."
Reception: 6-8:30pm

Chris Crite's has put together a show around the theme of BAD WORDS for Twilight Artist Collective.
"There is really nothing wrong with a word. It can't harm anyone literally, but again, the human mind can take words very seriously at times and can create its own damage from them. Despite all that, they can come in handy and express things good words just can't. This show is intended to be an examination of words that could be construed as "bad"."
Reception from 6-9pm.

Leotards by Rosa Lazzarini

What Comes Out by Rosa Lazzarini opens up at Joe Bar. The show was curated by Sierra Stinson who has a piece up in the BAD WORDS show.
“A mouth opens and hidden things emerge. The wider a mouth opens, the more intense and primitive the emission and the more the animal side is revealed. People usually try to hide and deny their feelings and instincts. This is not true for animals, who don't deny feelings and don't ignore their bodies and instincts."
Reception: 6-9pm
