Last night, Mark and I and our friends, Jason and Kim, went to the opening of a gallery show that featured the work of one of our friends, Jenny Elkins. She is a mixed media artist who creates collage art that features photographs from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. Jenny's wicked sense of humor is weaved into every piece. Jenny is a member of G.A.S. (Garage Artist Society) which is a group of artists who work in home studios in their garages. These are a few photos from last night's show, which also featured her fellow G.A.S. artists. The show runs through April 24th at the Dean Johnson Gallery in Indy.
This is a close up of the text from the piece above (I think it was a favorite among last night's gallery visitors:
This piece featured all of the "characters" that are regulars in Jenny's work. We told Jenny that she needs to write a book about them. So funny!

This next one is one from my private collection (really, it's the only original art i own, but i thought it would sound a little more prestigious to say "my private collection" :-)
A close up of the paper below the photo reads:
Doesn't that crack you up? That woman is so serious in the photo. That piece instantly reminded me of the enormous framed glasses my mom used to wear in the 80's. I just had to buy it.
