Troy Gua is taking aim at peers, critics, and the art game in general in his latest exhibit, Pissing Contest, currently on view at The Living Room. With references to Judd, Koons and other art lions, this latest work continues Troy's examination of fame, identity and ego. Here's an interview between Troy and curator Amanda Manitach. Info.

Full Blitz map/art walk locations. And as always, I recommend ending the night at Penetration at Unicorn.

And if you happen to be in West Seattle for 2nd Thursday, check out these shows.

NEO-Kitsch is a national juried show at ArtsWest including work by artists like Diem Chau, Deborah Scott, Charles Krafft and Thomas Krueger.
"This miniature art exhibition with a big attitude includes artwork in diverse styles and mediums such as painted 45 records, a powder puff, and a skillet; a crayon tip carved into a little girl; a funny shaped rock covered in colorful pom poms; multiple PEZ® container artworks; beautiful misfit dolls made from recycled materials, as well as amusing and just plain cool artwork made from more traditional mediums."
More details here.

Also, Twilight Artist Collective will be hosting a TACKY HOLIDAY SWEATER party in conjunction with their 12 days of X-mas show. Twelve artists each take a day, including folks like Chris Sheridan and Rich Lehl. More info here. Additional West Seattle art walk locations here.
