Live Art Throw Down: Farley Charwell June Final Friday @ Lucky's Everyday

Farley Charwell is the birthed product of interdimensional beings and is also a human cartoon. I want my world to be fun and ridiculous so I’m on a mission to spread my madness through my art and my everyday life. I feel life is too short most people have lost their happy thoughts and I like to try and bring the kid out in everyone. If anyone one gains anything from my art i hope that it is that it’s ok to let your freak flag fly. Everyone’s the same. Let’s have fun with our miserable lives.

Human Representation - International Photography Exhibition @ Midwest Center for Photography

The act of capturing a moment in time through taking a photograph of someone is one of the highest gestures that a person can give. We all have the people in our lives that are important to us personally and also find people who are visually interesting. Documenting the likeness of these people as well as capturing the pure personality of a person through a range of emotional gestures is a phenomenal experience. This exhibition represents the human likeness in all of its forms, whether it is a documentary approach, a snapshot genre, if it is a fashion statement, an editorial statement, or simply a straight forward compositional body study, we are exhibiting the photographs of a wide range of people.

Exhibiting artists: Alice Anderson, Jason Andrescavage, Lisa Bang Hoffman, Kevin Bacher, Bruce Berkow, Lisa Beard, Nancy Stalnaker Bundy, Alexi Berry, Hsuan Chung, Nathan Collins, Ron Cooper, Dallas Crow, Rose Cunningham, Spencer Cunningham, Gwendolyn Davies, Tristan Dennis, Mark Dierker, Sandra Dyas, Dan Farnum, Dan Gemkow, Paula Rae Gibson, Timothy Goins, Ted Gordon, Kelsy Gossett Dennis, Richard Greene, Anna Grevenitis, Meg Griffiths, Javier Guri, Charles Hively, Rion Huffman, David Jensen, Luke Jordan, Nikki Keeton, Micah Kraus, David Lancaster, Connie Lowell, Nicholas Luchenbill, Jennifer Maiotti, Sara Maresca, Michael Martin, Rose Materdomini, Miriam McAuley, Jonna McKone, Sofia Mendez, Josefina Moran, Grant Moxley, Jackson Nichols, Collin Pollard, Marcia Poloski, Irene Rim, Nat Raum, Natalie Weber, Dana West, Don Wolfe and Mitsu Yoshikawa.
