Invoke all the Magic You Can Exhibition by Nik Nerburn
Friday, May 26th from 3-7pm
at the Little Theatre Auditorium

We are delighted to present artworks created by Nik Nerburn in his exhibition called “Invoke Any Magic You Have.”
Nik’s unique body of work features dollhouses as a space of myth and turmoil, rather than idealized middle-class life. Here is disaster, memory and myth. Houses where a tall tale masks a secret, a well-timed laugh can save your life, and potato lives in your room like a piano you can’t fit out the door.

Fitted with hand carved frames made in the tradition of “Tramp Art”, a marginal art-historical category of woodworking from the Great Depression, Nik uses the same chip-carving techniques and scrap-methods to make his own interpretation of these frames for my photographs.

6pm Exhibition Open
7pm Music by Vincent Mische
Artworks are available for purchase showing May 6 – June 10
