Press Release

red herring:

This fallacy is committed when irrelevant material is introduced to the issue being discussed, so that everyone's attention is diverted away from the point being made, toward a different conclusion.


an implement or part of machinery; a catch, detent, or pawl

the hammer of a firearm

a fellow: familiar or contemptuous

It is the intention of the show to represent emotion. To throw a diversion to the comfort of irony while remaining open to emotions without veils. Whether it's to represent sorrow, elation, or the point of inertia which renders one neither - it is there.

Emotion without fear is a friend of ours. The harmonics of stupidity and freedom fly high once again. This time the gallery welcomes Lillian Ludlow and Marcella Mullins and their contemporaries. I Throw Herring to the Dog brings 13 artist of various backgrounds to a summer show of painting, drawing, sculpture and tapestry.
