BUGS!!! Exhibit open through September 21

It’s been a very buggy time around here. Once you become aware of something, it is everywhere, and so it is with insects for me.

Since getting to know Lauren, entomology has started to creep in on me, and it continues with the BUGS!!! exhibit at the Arts of Life.

From assemblage to collage to paintings to photography and paper-cut-outs, insects are portrayed in colorful ways.

They aren’t the creepy crawlies we think they are, when we spend time studying them and understanding their place in this world.

On Saturday evening, El Circo Cheapo entertained with acrobatics, and the Arts of Life emcees offered up insect jokes and trivia, such as the strongest beetle in the world.

Exhibiting artists include: Christopher J. Erickson, Debbie Vasquez, Jean Wilson, Jim Newberry, Jon Walz, Maike’s Marvels, Marta Sytniewski, and Mike Kaskel.
