Good News Only is pleased to announce its current exhibition curated by high school students entitled ‘A lot of you care, but not enough’. Please join us at the opening reception on Friday, June 15th from 6-8pm. Teen curators Samuel Choi, Theo Covey, Kimberly Hernandez and Katherine Rumas will be available to answer questions. The exhibition runs through July 20, 2012.
Halfway through our spring session, Good News Only curators chose tragedy as the theme for their exhibition. In the remaining weeks during artist studio visits and gallery tours, they began selecting artwork for the show highlighting different types of war: political, societal, natural and familial. Describing the exhibition, Kimberly said: “Tragedies are all around us and everyone’s personal tragedies make up something larger although we might not notice it. Our exhibition is made up of different tragedies put together to tell the story of the world.”
Artists included in the show are Daniel Beltra, Erin Chlaghmo, Deborah Luster, Wolfie Rawk, and Rodrigo Zendejas. Theo describes Beltra’s photograph: “The piece about the [BP] oil spill shows the beauty that is sometimes found in tragedy, the bright colors of the chemicals in the water reacting with the oil gives the entire thing an other worldly feel and it is just awesome.”
