Owner/curator Laura Kuenzli had this to say about the show:

This particular exhibition has a very personal connection to me as I am a breast cancer survivor, being diagnosed less than a week after signing the lease for Rivet. In its own way, I'd like this exhibition to help in a small way to further fund the research that played such a role in my own treatment as it has in countless other lives.

The amazing Jouwe customs continue to roll in. This time, we get a shot of MeSmithy's custom piece. It has little bit of an ancient Egyptian vibe to the piece...and I'm digging those horns that were added to the sculpt.
