“COOL! Dog Days of Summer” is a large group show about cool, its roots in ancient cultures including Africa, its etymology and the supreme cool of ice cream. Cool is a poem by Gwendolyn Brooks. The exhibit is about itutu and sangfroid and paintings in a water cooler bottle. It is about the cool gaze, the cool dip and the cool pose. It is about cool cats and it is about dogs who keep their cool even in August. It is about the squirrel with the twisty cone.
“COOL!” explores the search for cool and the endless attempts to define and measure it accurately -- efforts older than the glacial rocks left behind in the last Ice Age. And just as immovable.
The artists in “COOL!” are Samantha French, Aaron J. Hauck, Shawn Yamel Cupid, Joe Heaps Nelson and Ryan Roth. It is curated by Peter J. Ketchum.
“COOL! DOG DAYS OF SUMMER” opens August 15th from 6-9 at the TNC Gallery 155 First Avenue and continues through September 16th. Hours are daily 10-8.
