I like to ROCK! Portraits of Rock Stars at La Petite Mort Gallery!

Group show curated by Missy Marston-Shmelzer

November 23 - December 2 / 2007 / Vernissage Friday November 23/ 7PM - 10PM

In honour of the 32nd anniversary of CKCU radio, curator Missy Marston-Shmelzer has asked some of her favourite artists to pour some sugar on their favourite rock stars by creating tribute ortraits in the medium of their choice.

Artists include NYC sensation, Helen Sadler (whose work appeared in last year's prestigious Guggenheim Young Collectors Ball), acclaimed Toronto painter, Scott Everingham, locals Gary Goodacre, Peter Shmelzer, Beaston, Andrew Fay, popular children's artist Felicity Taylor and more.

Subjects range from Dylan to Prince to Tom Jones; media employed, from oil painting to underpants and glitter. Prepare to be dazzled. Raise your lighters high and rock on!

Also on display during the show, will be photos from the CKCU archive: over 30 years of campus community radio hi-jinx! Opening vernissage will feature the reverberating talents of CKCU DJ's.
