Second Saturday reception for #resist art exhibit, Sat., July 8, 6 p.m., Axis Gallery, no cover
Through Axis Gallery’s new #resist exhibit, the co-op’s 16 artists share their unified contempt for the Donald. A collection of mixed art, from photography to paintings to sculpture, share a variety of viewpoints provoked by the presidential election, public marches and the online resistance movements. Some examples with potent opinions: a Donald Trump bust colored with the “world’s blackest black,” a tiny portrait of “Number 45” nested within several layers of lavish gold frames and the above Pinocchio president. Axis will hold a Second Saturday reception for the exhibit, where you’ll have a chance to put together your own political art with poster boards and art supplies. Your finished work will even be displayed in the gallery. The exhibit runs through July 30. 625 S Street, http://axisgallery.org.
