'Go For Broke'

When: Dec. 1-Jan. 15 2016

Money, addiction and the detritus of both are at the heart of this two-artistexhibition at Burlington’s S.P.A.C.E. Gallery. Benjamin Peberdy’s collages satirize advertising with their recontextualization of found imagery; gallery owner Christy Mitchell’s mixed-media works are more pointed. An altar-like installation is a monument to both excess and the hope for more; among the evidence are strips of discarded lottery scratchers, which Mitchell also used as the basis of eight prints decrying “Money! Money! Money!” The gallery has recently added a new café, Rubra Atra, so you can get your caffeine and art fix at the same time.
