Opening reception: Sunday May 6, 5 – 9pm

Positive Reinforcement is a collection of artwork describing and exploring several different local artists’ personal “happy places”. The exhibition is an opportunity for us to inhabit the fantasies of others and compare the similarities and differences between them. What they have in common is that none of them are literal visions of utopia. In fact, very few of the works are superficially pleasant, and many are aggressively ecstatic, even a bit violent. Motifs within this exhibition span across the board from nostalgia to sex and death, to more abstract, visceral interactions with shapes and materials. Mediums employed are equally diverse – from kinetic sculpture to pen and ink drawings. Peanut Gallery’s trademark sense of irreverent play is present more than ever in this exhibition, and we invite you to visit anytime and let Positive Reinforcement be your happy place for the month of May.
