a desire to show their work, but wanted to remain outside of the
traditional gallery structure. The group was unified in an understanding
that all artistic endeavors are related to each other through the

drawing, architecture, furniture, photography, sculpture, and
performance art. Gala will feature works by local artists selected
specifically for Booty.

practices art making that reveals, complicates, or distills mainstream
working methods. For more information on Pure/Impure, please contact
