BANG! Gotcha Joe!

Join us for the opening reception of BANG! Gotcha Joe!, Thursday, February 2, 5-7pm at Safety-Kleen Gallery One, Elgin Community College. This is a collaborative exhibition of Dominic Sansone’s sculptures and paintings of CJ Hungerman’s paintings. Come out and enjoy art, conversations and light refreshments. Exhibition and reception is free and open to the public.

Violence and disregard for life have become so ingrained in American society and culture that our collective consciousness is now shaped by paranoia and fear. The media we choose to consume numbs us and the suffering endured by others become nothing more than flickering images on a screen, slowly turning our desensitization’s to apathy and fascination. The black market is awash in cheap weapons and in most cities if someone wants one, they can get one, legally or otherwise. Where change needs to take, place is with the individual. All of us must speak out against violence of any type, no matter the circumstances, race, religion, or creed. This exhibition stands as a monument to our current state of affairs, to our gun-culture, to our kneeling at the altar of hate and intolerance, and to all the victims; past, present, and future. – Dominic Sansone and CJ Hungerman
