STAMP OUT REALITY / ARTIST LEX GJURASIC
Artist Lex Gjurasic invites you to Stamp Out Reality! with her immersive exhibition of psychedelic paintings and conceptual sculptures hosted by Tiny Town Gallery, 408 N. 4th Ave, Tucson AZ 85705. Stamp Out Reality! is on display April 4 -April 30, 2017 with an opening party Friday April 7, 6-9pm.
Tucson AZ: Tiny Town Gallery has invited visual artist Lex Gjurasic to install an art experience that will Stamp Out Reality! The exhibition is comprised of Gjurasic’s playful Styrofoam conceptual cactus sculptures that were created for and installed at the inaugural year of the Dusk Music Fest in Tucson last year and her strange levitating Otherworldly cut-out panel paintings that were previously on display at Tucson International Airport.
Says Gjurasic, “Stamp Out Reality! was a Vietnam era protest slogan on a button worn by my friend’s father. This phrase resonates even more so now more than ever in this time of infotainment, truthiness and alternative facts…why not get lost in the imagination of the artist?”
The exhibition Stamp Out Reality! will be punctuated with a limited edition run of buttons printed by Tanline Printing. These collectable buttons will available at the opening reception party and through Tiny Town Gallery for the duration of the exhibition.
