|“||This is the best place ever.||”|
Luke Armstrong’s latest show is a continuation of his 2014 show, titled Art is for Everyone. The work in this new show builds on the concepts started last year, but is informed and influenced by Luke’s mind-opening trip to Peru. This trip marked the end of Luke’s first phase of life – the learning phase (which is followed by the doing phase, and finally the sharing phase). Luke wanted one final exploration to learn as much as possible as his first 33-and-a-third years came to an end.
The lessons he picked up through his experiences are shared in Art is a Product. Through art cards with written meditations on the back, plus new multi-media works of art, puzzle pieces, and one-of-a-kind t-shirts, Luc Amstrong (a new version of Luke’s name, gained in Peru) shares what he learned.
The title, Art is a Product, refers to the idea that making art more accessible (like a product) can help artists spread their messages easier. He has work at a variety of price points, making it affordable for people from all walks of life.
Art is a Product can be viewed during the opening reception on Saturday, March 21 from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.. To learn more about the imagery, symbolism, and background of the work, you can attend the artist talk on Wednesday, March 18 at 7:00 p.m.. Both events are free and open to the public.
Cali Commons is also open by appointment – email email@example.com or call 402-618-1981 to set up a time to view the show.
