Something’s Happening : The Big Art of Katie Pell

August 17 - October 28, 2018

Katie Pell reminds us that we are all performing our lives. We occasionally deserve a little luck and a standing ovation.

Katie Pell embraces the beauty in imperfection and the humor in insecurities, welcoming the downtrodden and enveloping them affectionately in oversized art. She engages an eclectic supporting cast to tell her story, including fallen rock angel Peter Frampton, Jesus of Nazareth, sensitive woodland creatures, and awkward teenagers. With a mix of hippie-era idealism, dark wit, and personal grit, Katie Pell reminds us that we are all performing our lives. We occasionally deserve a little luck and a standing ovation.
