THE SEXUAL BRONZE SHOW
January 16 - February 27, 2016
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 16, 6-8pm
Closing Reception and catalogue release: Saturday, February 27, 6-8pm
Klowden Mann is proud to present Bettina Hubby's THE SEXUAL BRONZE SHOW, Hubby's second solo show with the gallery. The exhibition is sexual and bronze. The content is determined by things one would get at the market, and the presentation, minimal with a nod to excess. Bronze pairings on pedestals will populate the front gallery, with photographs of those same pairings in various states of hanky-panky in the back.
The show will take place from January 16th through February 27th of 2016, with an opening celebration on Saturday January 16th, from 6-8pm.
"I take my humor seriously. I focused intently and took a survey, then plunged deeply and engrossed myself into the grocery aisles to find these pairings and made monuments to my match-made couples' various proclivities. I honor their diversity and their freedom of expression. I bronzed their essence and photographed them in a white bed of light to reveal their true natures; they gleam with a confident appreciative post-coital sigh." - Hubby
