Scented Illusions:Avon and Art

Josef Kraska (New York, film)
David Krofta (Chicago, drawing)
Zena Verda Pesta (New York, sculpture)
Charles E.Robers III (Chicago, film)

Opening night reception - Friday 13th January, 7 till 10 pm:
First showing of Charles E.Roberts III, ACT 1 FOR THE TEMPLE THEATER
PERFORMANCE by Rosé Hernandez (8 pm)
Scent filled food and drinks will be served for your delight
throughout the evening.

The selected art works and objects on display offer transformations of
their subject matter, dissolving recognizable forms into artificiality
and illusion. The installation of Avon bottles, around which the the
exhibition is based, has been assembled by co-curators Alice Kain and
Jonathan Sommer. This piece, using the outre theme of Avon bottles,
encourages a playful interpretation for the rest of the exhibition. We
invite the viewer to consume the sights and smells without longing for
meaning, instead to be entertained by the collision of artistic media
displayed in the S&S Project gallery space.

Friday 13th January 2012 - Friday 10th February 2012
