This First Friday gallery walk will offer a little something more than the usual vino/foodies discussing the "contemporary" art at the Dana and Monte Dolack galleries. There will be no paintings of horses, no photographs of tree trunks and absolutely no ceramic birds to buy and put in your yard.
VISUAL AUDIO CLUB: The Art of Total Fest XII guarantees to "get-you-off" by marrying the music by J. Sherri to the art of "punk" outsiders from Missoula and beyond. This exhibition will remind viewers of the intimacy of art and music making this year's Fest "TOTAL". The artists are: Lukas Phelan, Al Gaither, Adelaide Gale Every, Kia Liszak, Michael Workman, Tim Fox, Kari Workman, Jack Metcalf, Dane Hansen, Adam Lynn, Jazmine Raymond, Ryan Slevin, and Jace Rogers.
Viewers will be exposed to the under, arguably un-, represented group of punks and amateur artists inspired by music, beer, drugs and sex (those things that really inspire us). J. Sherri will play on a Science Fiction themed stage in the band-practice-space-turned-gallery I am calling "The Final Frontier Space". Located next to "Frontier Space" in the alley between Pine and Spruce, "The Final Frontier Space" will provide you will an "out-of-this-world" experience and it is guaranteed that you will see new and exciting objects and images.
Bring shirts, bags, fabric and paper to get a Total Fest XII tee early! Press Release Press will be set up in the alley for live printing of Total Fest related designs and more!
The show will be open 5-9pm, with music from 7-8pm. Expect to be inundated by crass humor, sarcasm, and perhaps and amateur usage of media, in a one-night-only show of visuals and audio.
