Co-curated by Peter Shear and Kevin McNamee-Tweed
February 26 - March 26, 2016
Mother Popcorn, co-curated by Peter Shear and Kevin McNamee-Tweed, features work by Katherine Bradford, Lucy Mink Covello, Katelyn Eichwald, Alicia Gibson, Ryan Nord Kitchen, Eve Lateiner, Peter Shear, Jonathan Ryan Storm, Jason Stopa, Brad Tucker, and Cody Tumblin. With an emphasis on urgent, generous, and openly playful work, the group show appropriately borrows its name and attitude from James Brown’s 1969 record. Slipping between abstraction and representation, concrete poetry and sound, Mother Popcorn brings together exuberant and fresh work from artists around the states.
Peter Shear is a self-taught painter living and working in Bloomington, Indiana. His works have been exhibited across the United States and abroad. Gifted with a supernatural appetite for painting and a keen eye, Shear’s participation as curator comes as a natural endeavor.
