If you're of the opinion that the Bob Ross-esque landscape sitting up in mom's attic would look a lot better with a hot-pink, multi-tentacled, top-hat-wearing Cthulhu dropped into the setting, then you'll want to attend On The Shoulders Of..., the new exhibition at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary (2713 Sutton Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-960-5322 or Forty artists display paintings, photos and sculpture that they transformed by applying their own distinctive aesthetic, elevating the objects from barely noticed to one of a kind works of art. On The Shoulders Of... opens with a free public reception from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, March 8. The show remains up through Saturday, March 30, and the gallery is open on Friday and Saturday.
Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: March 8. Continues through March 30, 2013
