Too Cool For School is a solo exhibition featuring the works of Tara Lewis. Tara is a multidisciplinary artist, primarily producing paintings and photograph's 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.
Opening reception will be on the first day of school, Thursday, September 5th from 6-9 P.M.
