Strange. Peculiar. Unexpected. Different from what is ordinary or normal. Join us for an evening of art oddities and excitement as The Pawtucket Arts Collaborative presents ODD: An Annual Open Juried Exhibition What happens to those rare works of art that just don’t fit an artist’s usual style or medium? Where are those strange, experimental pieces that they love and have hanging in their studios but never seem to be able to fit into a regular showing of their works. Join us for a rare evening when area artists break form, clear their closets, dust-off their “unseen” or newly created queer and wonderful works of fine art and present them to you. The juror this year is Madolin Maxey, a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Rhode Island School of Design who now maintains a studio in Providence. Madolin’s own works are zany and colorful.
