"Aside and Besides" by Mark Maas Mike Maas' unique blend of vector design with layered, wooden pieces that seem to jump out at you made for quite the graphical spectacle of a show opening at Perihelion Arts on April 2, 2009.
"Seriously Funny" by Dan Perjovschi Dan Perjovschi arrived at SMoCA to find a blank canvas which he filled with line drawings commenting on local social and political commentary; proving that life is much too important to take seriously.
