An Immature Look at the Nude
October 3-26, 2013
Some artists take the nude very seriously… as it should be. This is not that show. “Boobies & Wieners” is a group show featuring immature, crass, explicit, cartoonish, odd and whatever else is the opposite of “classy” art featuring nude subjects. It’s pretty self-explanatory really: remember that drawing in the bathroom stall of that gas station on the Trans-Canada Highway? Or the drawings in the margin of your school text book? You get the idea. The show features over 80 artists including: Alex MF Quicho, Matt Bowen, Dylan Berry, Audra Ann Ricketts, AW, ARGH!, Arlyn Bantog, Eileen MacArthur, Katrina Pruss, Max Brown, Laura McIntosh, Pandora Young, Lindsay Chetek, Jordy Cummings, Shaun McCord, Maritza Louis, Katy Springer, Nathan Crothers, Rogan Josh, Marina LeClair, Leah McInnis, Jonathan Moogk, Tanille Geib, Simon Raab, Shelley Stefan, Quinn Lincoln, Ali Bruce, Vanessa Lever, Chris Bentzen, Erin Gibbs, Yolanda Mason, Megan Allard, Shary Contrary, Alicia McLean, Sally Clark, Ben Westergreen, Peter Lojewski, Jessica Viens, Janee Auger, Viktor Barkar, Sharon Piekarski, Kathy Rudin, Ted Wilson, Rita Hernandez, Nicole Parekh, Daniel Hawkins, Rhandi Sandford, Jordan Westre, Kara Zisa, Jenna Milsom, Shelley Rothenburger, Amelia Garvin & Kyla Jamieson, Matthew Gardiner, Shannon Pawliw & Shawn Robinson, Miguel Martin, Vince Hemingson, Marina Nazarova, Char Hoyt & Stephen Wimbush, Aaron White, peg.leg, Francoise Thibault, Bashar Sawalha, Zohar, Marc Junker, Daphne Chan, Russell Alton, Mandy Tsung, Andrea Hooge, and Nomi Chi.
As part of the show, we’ll be featuring “Art or Bust” curated by Jenn Brisson with artists Alicia Lumb, Caprice White, Liz Watson, Christina Norberg, Sarah Mulder, Amanda McCuaig, Ben Westergreen, LJ Throstle, Cielo English, and Jenn Brisson applying their art to breast casts of people who have been affected by breast cancer or who have known someone who has. Casts of Pixie Pristine, Melissa Serrano, Lisa Dickson, Laura Fee, Shona Miko Musgrave, Rachelle Jones, Lizzy, Sandy, and Kristi Clark. These pieces will be auctioned off and money raised donated. Each piece will include the reasons why the model and artist felt drawn to participate in this project or how it has affected their lives. Breast cancer affects 1 in 9 people… chances are that if YOU are not diagnosed with breast cancer, someone you know will be.
