"Glitter Bath" Saturday, April 9th

An Opening Service of the 1st National Church of the Exquisite Panic, namely:

"Glitter Bath"
by Addie Wuensch
Saturday, April 9

Ms. Wuensch describes this collection of work as a catalyst for "introspective retrospection," an examination of our lives from the quiet simplicity of the childhood tub of water to the sophisticated glitterfication of adulthood. Glitter is not just a sparkly substance that catches our eye and gums up the vacuum, but is metaphored into the influence of language, fashion, media, and society at large, effectively coating our skin and eyeballs and burying the underlying reality of humanhood. It has been suggested that the mirrored, reflective quality of glitter may most pointedly represent a dulling of the capacity to absorb, possibly a reaction to post-modern architecture in the post-modern world. It has also been suggested that glitter is "the herpes of arts & crafts"; Ms. Wuensch decries this assessment and posits that glitter is an unfortunate but absolutely curable disease, more like gonorrhea.

This exhibit features over a dozen of Ms. Wuensch's mixed-media works, as well as a collection of adornments and readings from her recently published book of poems by the same name (Glitter Bath). Guests are also invited to join us in ritual glitterfication and cleansing, a public service in light of the Azalea Festival happenings just a few blocks away.
