Chaos Theory 2010

Hey, remember how I mentioned my buddy Eric in this entry? Well, I ran into Eric not long ago, and he revealed to me that he was now the art director for the Henning Cultural Center in nearby Sulphur, LA. The funny thing is that I had passed this place dozens of time and never even knew what it was!

Eric also passed along an invitation to Henning's current gallery show, "Chaos Theory". The concept of Chaos Theory is an "alternative" art show, spotlighting works related to comic books, movies, TV shows, video games, and the like. In other words, my sort of thing! My first visit to Henning was great, except for the tiny little detail that my camera's batteries chose to die. But I remedied that and made my way back on August 3rd.

Here is the gallery of photos I took at Chaos Theory. Regrettably, I just couldn't get pictures of everything, and I missed the names of a few pieces that I did capture. But this should give you a representative sampling of the work on display at this show. It is good stuff, all done by local artists!

If you would like to learn more about Henning, you should visit the official website of Henning Cultural Center. The Chaos Theory show runs from July 15-August 25, so there is still time to check it out if you happen to be in the SWLA neighborhood. And if you see Eric, tell him Christopher Elam's OWARI sent you. He might even introduce you to drunk Picard if you're lucky!

So much love for the show. I really enjoy seeing galleries loosen up and put on alt art or nerd art shows.

It's a small place (converted historic house, in fact), but they have done a great job. I was hoping I could get them a little more attention, and it seems to have worked!
