Petshop invites you to the opening reception of Christopher Vaughn Couse's CHAIR SHOP on Friday, July 1st, from 7-10pm.
CHAIR SHOP is Couse's third solo BFF exhibition since 2014. In this exhibit Couse shares a collection of recent site specific works along w/ pieces he has created during the past decade exploring his obsession w/ chairs, which all started w/ feeling too awkward to ask fellow students to pose as subject studies for his photography class in art school.
You may have seen his work in the streets as leave behind pieces, as stickers, or in paste-up form –- you may have seen one of his works at a friends place -- you may have received one of his pieces in the mail -- or maybe you've stumbled across his Instagram account (@christography). Couse has shown work in numerous group shows nationally & is also one of the artists chosen for this summers BFF Tiny Murals project.
If you enjoy art influenced by pop-art, furniture, color, comfort, street-art, symbolism, chairs, mail-art, minimalism, fluxism, obsessions, Barq's Rootbeer, discussing what or what isn't art, & life experiences you'll find something to enjoy in this exhibit.
FREE Barq's Rootbeer & buttons (while supplies last).
Christopher Vaughn Couse is a twice-transplant to Omaha from NW Pennsylvania. He is an art school dropout whose (now) self-taught practice has been fueled by his enjoyment & need of expression through art. While adopting concepts from the Fluxus & Mail Art movements of the 60's/70's he tends to combine elements of collage, illustration, found objects, and photography to honestly explore dimensions of his curiosity, perspective, feelings, life, and presentation.
