WE WANT YOU! …to submit objects to a month-long group exhibition we’re calling: “WELL, WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE THAT IS?” We’ve all got ‘em, we’ve all seen ‘em. Maybe you found it at a flea market and bought it even though you didn’t know what it was. Maybe it hides in your kitchen drawer, or hangs on your wall. Maybe you know what it is, maybe you don’t. Mysterious tools. Strange artifacts. Georgous garbage. Oh my! Please drop-off objects to Otto’s Abode during regular hours on or before Sunday, February 2nd 2020. Otto’s Abode kindly asks for a $10 submission fee, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds. All ages – all welcome! Objects will be on view during regular hours at Otto’s Abode in Wanakena for the public to ponder Thursday Feb 6th though Sun March 8th 2020. A closing reception celebrating the objects will be held Saturday March 7th 5-7pm. Friends, snack, drink, music, free and open to all!
