Welcome local artist Hoop&Stick – AKA, Brandon Spence – nomad, extraordinaire, genius. We will be hosting an artist reception for his latest show, “Topple the Steeples; Tear Down the Flags” on Friday, September 29th from 6-9PM.

“Everything is Collage. You – Your Mom – This Statement – Your Ideas – Your Entire Worldview – Society – The Universe Itself.

Just as quarks come together to form atoms – to form molecules – to form complex structures – to form life, your innermost thoughts – beliefs – ideas are formed from the (often involuntary) acquisition, deconstruction, analysis, acceptance, rejection and reconstruction of previous thoughts – beliefs – ideas.

Hoop&Stick’s works will be on display at Studio 180 Salon starting in September through October.
