The exhibition will feature Lewis' paintings and photographs and will run through Monday, September 30th. The opening reception for Too Cool for School will be held on Thursday, September 5th from 6-9 p.m.Tara Lewis is a multidisciplinary artist, primarily producing paintings and photographs that dive into youth culture anthropology with a pop twist. She creates large scale oil portraits of models wearing t-shirts, pageant sashes and other wearables designed and printed by the artist. These wearables center on evolving perceptions of youth, irreverence, girl culture, beauty, identity, teen trends, girl empowerment, social issues, and pop culture. She often refers to past decades and pre-internet sources in refreshed and boldly mundane ways.
