Sinful Gallery 301

By weeklyvolcano on July 14, 2009


Gallery-301 I'm well aware of the seven deadly sins. I watched Gilligan’s Island when I was a kid. I witnessed a short-fused Thurston Howell III blow through his spiteful stack like clockwork. I watched the gluttonous Skipper gobble everything in sight. I tolerated skoochie Ginger bump and grind while I drooled over sweet Mary Ann. And I didn’t laugh when lazy-ass Gilligan, asleep in his hammock, would fall to the ground every time fatty clobbered him with his hat.

Ignoring the moronic morality tale that is G.I., there’s another opportunity to see the seven deadly sins â€" on our own little island that is the Tacoma Dome District. Gallery 301 will explore the age-old vices beginning Saturday when it unveils The Seven Deadly Sins show from 4-6 p.m. The month-long show “tackles the problem of sin in mixed-media art and video. In addition, the show offers commentary by people from different walks of life, who write about sin from the perspective of their profession,” according to the gallery’s press release.

Featured artists and writers include: Mindy Barker, Beautiful Angle, Joe Black, Daniel Blue, Brett Carlson, John Carlton, Chris Causey, Alec Clayton, Bill Dawson, Kyle Dillehay, Lynn Di Nino, Marc Dombrosky, Bagger 288, Erica Fickeisen, Kyle Franklin, Becky Frehse, Walter Gaya, Debra Hannula, Robert Jacklin, Rick Jones, Charles Krafft, Denise Ladenburg, Malcolm McLaren, Linda Nyland, Claudia Riedener, Cathy Sarkowsky, Kathy Schultz, Chris Sharp, Seong Shin, and Niki Sullivan. 

Check out the show Saturday during its two-hour cruise through the art, or something.
