WET is a group exhibition focused on liquid relief for one of our hotter months in the sweaty Crescent City. The artists in this exhibition demonstrate the damp in a wide variety of mediums and attitudes, from wishful-thinking pleasure-romps in the swamp to unrelenting evaporation under the buzz of a desperate air-conditioning unit. Works include photography, video, installation, drawings, sculpture, and painting. This self-curated exhibition features current and recent graduates from the University of New Orleans Fine Arts Department. Exhibiting artists include Kevin Baer, Vanessa Centeno, Jason Christopher Childers, Valerie Corradetti, Robyn Denny, David Hassell, Peter Hoffman, Sylvia Santamaria, Natalie Tobacyk, Bradford Willingham, and Ryn Wilson.

Also, a review of The Front in May, including an image and description of my show, FATHOM.
