This event has ended.

Kuharic’s fifth solo exhibition with P·P·O·W will continue to explore her investigations into consumer culture, and how products are marketed and imaged. This meticulous and obsessive collecting is re-collaged to create paintings with extremely detailed drawings and complex painting techniques.& nbsp; This new body of work highlights these aspects as well as celebrity culture both pop and suburban. The personal is also incorporated throughout these new works, most pointedly in a continuing series entitled Pound of Flesh where Kuharic has been tracking her weight loss and gain through repeated symbols and motif.

During this exhibition Kuharic will be on site every Saturday from 11am to 6pm painting the grass in a work in progress. The grass overlays the words "Keep Out" and "Peek Out." The painting is an allegory of the exclusion of women in politics and has portraits of all of the US presidents based on a paper placemat from a diner. In addition she will be painting watercolors that say "Made in America" these will be sold for $28.40 per hour, the rate that used to be paid to auto workers in Detroit.
