Comment by AB: Nearly sixty artists each receive a two-foot high coffin to artify as they please. The creations they come up with sure please me (I worked a summer job in a cemetery all four years of college, so I'm lovin' this). The show is produced by Electric Coffin, a creative firm based in Seattle, sponsored by Monster Energy and co-curated by Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow.
The basic idea - coffin art group show at Gauntlet Gallery.

Roll Up Gallery: Surreal Abstract Dreamy Landscapes.
Artists: Minky Lew, Gimena Macri, Chidem Michalski, Molly Campbell, Jack Taylor, A collaboration painting by Anthony Aversano & Aurelius Tishlarich & Isaac Saavedra, Yeyei Gomez, BANDID8.
Review by RWM: Nice to see Nature in symbolism with archytypes. These are pieces of a more complicated ecology that have left a lasting impression and now float in the breezes. All sorts of connections for subjects and experiences that can astound. Not only fun, but also spiritual. Meanings can be excavated from the psyche. Creatures abound.
