Arty Girl: The Trouble with Boys and Girls
|"For Your General Bliss" by Rebekah Bogard.|
These days, I'm happy to report that I'm the "so-in-love" version of me ( although the unfortunate side affect is I'm now under-exercised but, oh well) so we can skip the rant about any trouble with boys and girls from my perspective.
Instead, we'll chat about the perspectives of the four local artists who make up "The Trouble with Boys and Girls" exhibition at Mesa Contemporary Arts.
Rebekah Bogard is an expert at this game. She is an artist who has impressed me in the past and she includes her signature weasel-like ceramic creatures to talk about relationships, sex and romance in this show. I'm less familiar with artist Cynthia Consentino, but all I had to do was look at the first image that popped up on her website (a ceramic figure of a heavily-thighed woman with a pressing iron instead of a head) and I was immediately intrigued. Artists Jason Huff and Max Lehman are two more ceramicists whose works are riddled plenty of snark.
With this line-up of artists and this choice of subject matter, I'm expecting a pretty hilarious visual conversation about all the trouble boys and girls can get into...the potential is thick.
"The Trouble with Boys and Girls" runs until May 24th at Mesa Contemporary Arts, 1 East Main St. in Mesa, 480-644-6560, www.mesaartscenter.com.
