All Dressed Up With No Place To Go - Fictional tales of chiselers & ballyhoo on the American midway is the first Chicago-based solo show from painter Matthew Ryan Sharp. Taking place at OhNo!Doom Gallery, the opening reception will be Saturday, May 7th 2011 from 6PM to 10PM. Free cotton candy and popcorn will be available - while supplies last!
Matthew describes the show as such:
I decided to play with the paradox between a traveling carnival and an art show this time around. I have created a bunch of new work, products, prints, plush and hand painted carnival banners for this show. Since it is my first solo show in Chicago...I had to do the city proud and bring it proper.
