THE DEBUT GROUP SHOW BY ARTISTS FROM
THE ARTMAKER FORUM
MAY 30 - JUNE 20, 2003
CBGB 313 GALLERY
The 1300 active members of online clubhouse THE MOTHERBOARDS include hundreds of performers and artists working in many disciplines and cities. In 2002 multimedia artist TONYA KNUDSEN founded the ARTMAKER FORUM to encourage and channel this tidepool of talent. ARCADIA! is the first group show of ArtMaker artists, and has the unifying theme of a Tarot deck's Major Arcana. Visual participants include many familiar and up-and-coming names from the downtown milieu, like MISSY GALORE of TeleTwinTowers.org, MADAME DOLLHAUS of Williamsburg's DOLLHAUS GALLERY, multimedia star ROB ROTH and photographer DERRICK LITTLE. They also include Cincinatti's noted Club Costumers ZAZOO AND SATORI and Chicago dollmakers JO-JO BABY and GIGI DELUXE.
