Gatsby “Dressed as a Friend” Art Exhibit Opening

July 31, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Gatsby Art Exhibit

Opening Night

6 p.m. Saturday, July 31

The Portico


From The Artist’s Statement:
GatsbyNotArt is an artist, who like all of us, is human.
He is not perfect and has his own virtues and frailties. He has his own experiences and story with mental health, addiction, religion and law enforcement via the so-called justice system.
Gatsby reflects his own experience through his art and to a large extent has used it to alleviate traumas, his own and others.
An impressive multimedia installation, created especially for this exhibition, will enthrall visitors, as they enter into a presentation of GATSBY’s newest work “Dressed As A Friend”, which reinterprets Jesus’ metaphor of wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing to examine some of today’s most pressing issues; such as racial injustice, overconsumption, the oversexualizaton of women, addiction, and society’s constant search for external validation.
His controversial presentation makes his point of view clear on current events and social issues… and is a mirror to materialism, over consumption, desire, drive and shame…it’s intoxicating.
This event is free and open to the public.

RSVPs help us plan for a good experience. They are not required but greatly appreciated!
