THE ROBO SHOW
MECHS & MOBILE SUITS
Opening February 12th 7-10pm
Reception at Light Grey Art Lab
"Black smoke belches from the exhaust pipes beneath greasy armored plates. Steam courses through the cylinders and the 22 pistons jerk frantically back and forth, propelling your huge mass forward down the damp cobblestone streets. Frightened eyes peek from behind sooty curtains -- the unmistakable clanging of steel can be heard from a mile away in the still night. . ."
Join us for the opening reception of the ROBO SHOW, February 12th from 7-10pm. This upcoming exhibition calls 70 artists to create original designs, mech allies, mobile suits, prosthetics, flying machines, bionics, war ships, and vessels - the ROBO SHOW celebrates real and imagined technology, and the mad genius behind the machines we would love to pilot.
The contributing artists have taken on the role of illustrative engineers. The work featured may be inspired by a range --WWI machinery, science fiction vehicles, fantastical objects, space crafts, and artillery - these mobile suits belong in distant lands, futuristic planets, and foregone cities.
The opening reception is free and open to the public. The exhibition will be on display through the end of March, and limited edition prints available on the Light Grey Shop throughout the show.
