Plain Error Festival
You ever look at your art and regret you ever created it? Well, you’re not alone. In fact, Tim Nyberg, one of our witty member artists, is hosting a pretty comical art show where he will be exploring just that phenomenon. It’s called the Plain Error Festival and is a humorous take on the “Plein Air” festival happening at the same time near his hometown in Wisconsin.
But, because Tim has fair skin and sunburns easily, “even when liberally doused with sunscreen,” he can’t paint outdoors. “So, he’s launched the indoor “Plain Error Festival” at Gallery Forty Two in Juddville.” Plain Error is his take on Extreme Makeover, Gallery Edition. At the festival, Nyberg will be pulling previously painted images (his “errors”) straight off the wall and repainting over them to create newly made-over works of art.
Fridays through Sundays, July 21st through August 2nd the artist will be painting over some of the most grievous errors he’s ever placed on canvas. Paintings will be yanked off the walls and painted over in full display of the viewing public. There will be ample wine available to calm the nerves during this daring display of public humiliation.
You can find out more about the festival by reading the full press release.
I love the witty humor of this. What other comical or clever gallery showings have you participated in or attended?
