FUCK YOU ALL was honored to be represented in art show at our friend's awesome gallery in Joshua Tree, La Matadora.
The show was titled DYS/function: Functional Art for our Dysfunctional World! A multitude of fabulous artists showing: Melmac Plates, Latch-Hook Rugs, Shrinky Dink Knick-Knacks, Lite-Brite Art, + Custom Lamps & Chairs.
Not being familiar with melmac plates, a lot of friends were and had made them as kids. Basically you make a drawing and mail it in and ta da! A plastic plate featuring your art gets returned! Pretty cool. Very 70s. Fun!
The company that makes them was not happy when they got the FUCK YOU ALL plate drawing and refused to print it, claiming they are a "family business." Being told it was an adult art show must have swayed them however, as the plate arrived with all the others in the gallery order.
I was at my usual beach spot in Santa Barbara yesterday watching a Chumash ceremony in which they sing and chant and then row their handmade wooden boat out in practice for a yearly trip to the Islands. They ended up right behind this ginormous catamaran leaving the harbor with an obnoxious honking of horns. I see now it is owned by Warren Buffet. Quite the dichotomy of worlds.
