No Country for Old Hicks

Cowboy art in most galleries: a man and his steed; a man and his steed resting by a stream; a man and his steed looking upon the prairie. Bo-ring.

Cowboy art in the “Cow Poked” exhibit, which clowns that crap outta traditional Western art: a tub-of-lard cowboy kid riding away from McDonald’s on a scooter; a warped rendering of Johnny Cash’s one-fingered salute; and a hick -- fresh off a canned-piss-quality-brewski bender -- who looks like he’s getting off on a campfire. So good right now.

The exhibit continues with a Third Friday reception at Pravus, located in a new and spaciously awesome gallery at 501 East Roosevelt Street.
