Art Opening: Ken Bastard's The Sacred and the Mundane

Tuesday, November 2nd  7 - 10pm

The Sacred and the Mundane
There are no Heroes here.
There are no Rock Stars, no Actors, no Celebrities, no Models, Athletes, or Bigger Than Life Personalities.
This is Real Life.

Ken Bastard has put together a show that portrays the most simple aspects of everyday life. Paying bills, washing dishes, going to work as a reaction to the overload of Iconic imagery that abounds in the current Art Scene.

No Tattoo Influenced Art.
No Comic Books.
No Movies.
No Nothing.

Just Life at it's most Sacred and Mundane. Ken Bastard is an artist who lives and works in Jersey City. He probably can't remember your name, and doesn't care to.
