Opens Friday June 8th 6-9pm music by DJ Vodka Twist refreshments by Skip Rock Distilleries
Roq La Rue is pleased to present a group show entitled "Death and the Maiden" opening Friday June 8th. Based on the medieval theme (and repeated often throughout art history most notably the Romantic period) of a maiden waltzing with a skeleton in a danse macabre, the visual is a metaphor for the fact "no one gets out alive", and remembering it can make life a little sweeter. We asked a group of artists to submit their take and we are very excited with the results, and hope you will be too. We are also releasing a print by Femke Hiemstra initially available to gallery walk-in's the day of the show based on her original for the show "Mort En Cadence". Please join us for a festive celebratory opening as we open not only this dynamic show, but celebrate the gallery's 14th anniversary! Artist list: Kazuki Takamatsu, Femke Hiemstra, Travis Louie, Glenn Barr, Esao Andrews, Andrew Hem, Sylvia Ji, Peter Gronquist, Marco Mazzoni, Ciou, Lisa Petrucci. Laurie Lee Brom, Amanda Manitach, Jessica McCourt, Madeline Von Foerster, Jessica Joslin
