Divine Trash

If you’ve ever had a garage sale, you’ve witnessed that special breed of bargain shopper. As soon as you put out the signs, they’re dive-rolling out of their minivans to get the so-called best stuff. And here’s the creepy part. They’re not interested in your accidentally underpriced box of one-of-a-kind 1920s movie posters. No, no, no. They buy that hideous brass giraffe lamp, those ceramic frogs, the VHS copy of Look Who’s Talking. Well, at least these people have provided something of value in this world, which is inspiration for Diana Bonner’s “Kitsch, Cats & Knickknacks” exhibit. The show features paintings, drawings, and incorporated items from Bonner’s own junk collection.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: April 17. Continues through May 2, 2008
