One Night Only! Jenny Morgan Book Signing and Special Performance

After much anticipation the books are in! Jenny Morgan's beautiful new book titled "New Territory," is in the gallery and now available for purchase. A gorgeous visual anthology of Jenny's paintings in glossy hardcover, the book showcases works dating back to 2003. Produced by Plus Gallery in Denver, "New Territory" includes pieces in private collections as well as works exhibited at both Like the Spice Gallery and Plus Gallery.

To celebrate Like the Spice hosted a book signing with Jenny Morgan last night coupled with a performance by "One Show Good-bye" with Nicki Stager, Tom Firehat, James Weiss, and Ryan Blair. In a Chaplin-Esq performance the artists set forth to accomplish a simple task in the hardest way possible, haphazardly involving visitors and the entire gallery in the process. Staged with sound bites, voice-overs, and guitar accompaniment the artists installed a small piece by Nicki Stager first by measuring all possible distances, taking extensive notes, and ladder finagling that moved visitors to and fro around the gallery.

Next the performance escalated to chopping wood, rigging a pulley and rope to draw clothing through the gallery and finally getting dressed. The performers included artists Nicki Stager, Tom Firehat & James Weiss of FaceitdadPICTURES teamed with drummer/designer Ryan Bair.

Visitors to the gallery last night also had the opportunity to see our fantastic new show Exposure: Nicki Stager and Michelle Hinebrook which will be on view through January 17th. There are still seats available for our Artist Monthly Dinner Series next Friday night with Nicki and Michelle. To RSVP for please visit our website Monthly Dinner Series: Maybe Just A Tiny Bite, and join us!
