Innovative group show. Presented by Artist on Fire in their third Piccolo exhibit, this multimedia show explores the idea of consistency in our lives. Fifteen different artists working in photography, film, installation art, sculpture, mixed media, and painting examine the things that we take for granted (true love, a work/life balance, and the passing hours of each day). Live music from Volcanoes in the Kitchen will kick off and conclude the exhibit.

Dulled by routine? These artists ask the question: What do we take for granted in our lives? The spouse that we wake up next to every morning, the food in our pantry, the healthy heart that keeps beating? Are we dulled by routine, or are we propelled forward? Featured artists like Artist on Fire co-founder Alex Radin, Mimi Whaley, Kimmie Krauk, Holly Kramer, and others use this theme as inspiration in a series of works. A local sculptor explores the internal core of passion and what drives us forward, while another artist asks what we leave behind.

Highs and lows. A vague theme can give artists the freedom to follow their muse without any restrictions, but it can also result in a confusing show. Billed as "visionary young artists" by Piccolo founder Ellen Dressler Moryl, the exhibit gives a voice to this group of up-and-comers. Mesmerizing photographs from Yuki Tong and acrylic paintings full of movement by Austin Smith are some of the highlights.
