Agitator Co-operative Gallery
Street Photography by Emilio Nadales
“Street Photography from my point of view is a time-capsule, unintentional document which interweaves a static past and a continuous present. It is a travel to your subconscious mind, inner self, as much as your past. It is so an unique personal experience that any comment about it from external sources is subjective, irrelevant, and nonsense because your personal experience cannot be analyzed for anybody except you who has created it.” - Emilio Nadales
Opening Reception 6:00pm to 10:00pm

LVL3 Gallery
Too Good To Be True
LVL3 is excited to present Too Good To Be True, a two-person show featuring Chicago-based David Heo and St. Louis-based Yowshien Kuo. Kuo utilizes symbolic details to comment on the constructed and bias histories of America. The work captures the tension and disorienting experience of existing within this country. Heo’s work is focused on the culture of nightlife and subtle intimacies within this world. Lingering feelings of desire are present within the work as they capture these fleeting experiences. The work in this show follows an omnipresent misinterpretation of everyday encounters. Too Good To Be True is a reflection of how these two artists play with symbolic histories to reframe the seemingly familiar.
Opening Reception 6:00pm to 10:00pm

Catherine Pikula - I'm Fine, How Are You?
Join us as we welcome author Catherine Pikula to read from her new chapbook I'm Fine, How Are You? which explores gender, love, sexuality, anxiety, loss, and ultimately hope in the ability of language to heal trauma. Through threaded stories of a lover on a road trip with another woman, a violent old flame, and a friend's suicide, the speaker unravels the troubling knot between herself and others, and between body and psyche in search of strength. Catherine will be joined by local authors Jan-Henry Gray and Julia Cohen.

Tim Anderson: Stamps
Since 1982, Tim Anderson has made images of postage stamps that would never be printed. His infatuation with stamps as pieces of art started in childhood. It went along with making handmade postcards. The possibilities were exciting, partly because of the prospect of communicating with people in foreign lands. These paintings are examples of this fascination.
