Outside the Box

Last Friday night, the critters and I participated in Outside the Box, an "assemblage" show held at the East End Studio Gallery (EESG).  This show, curated by Julie Zarate and David Pilgrim, was one of the most interesting shows I've been to all year.  "Assemblage" meant something different and unique to every artist, and the results were spectacular!
