Who Saved Who? is an exhibition that explores the bond between humans and their pets that reaches beyond the general use of animals to a strange and magical human-animal attachment. A mix of curated, professional artworks (including renowned artist William Wegman) and images selected from a community open call for creative expressions of beloved pets, this exhibition illustrates the universal bond between humans and their familiars.

TURTLES ALL THE WAY UP
Works by John O’Donnell
February 6 – May 26, 2019
Opening reception: Thursday, 2/14/2019 from 6 – 8 PM
John O’Donnell is a printmaker and new media artist who appropriates images and objects relating to art history, popular media, and consumer culture to create rough-hewn assemblages, performances, and videos.
Turtles All The Way Up features a series of sculptures that use the language of toys to reference a crude generalization of Eastern sensibilities often drawing on Buddhism and Hinduism. O’Donnell uses toys, manufactured in China and imported to the west to critique and embrace an arrogant American sensibility and explore the affordable escape inherent to the nostalgic toys he repurposes.
Swamp of Love
O’Donnell will be presenting a special Valentine’s Day performance, sponsored by Whaling City Sound, titled Swamp Of Love, at 7:30 PM on February 14, 2019.
