Warts and ALL

Folio Weekly’s own Madeleine Peck Wagner mines self-consciousness in her exhibit, The Labor of Learning. She tries to undermine the idea that fat inherently means ugly with works that are semi-abstract, blobby, lumps and bumps. At the opening, instead of talking about her work, the artist will probably talk about an obscure essay she’s reading or her dog.

Opening reception 5:30 p.m. Thursday, October 12 at Cathedral Arts Project, 207 N. Laura St., Ste. 300, Downtown, madeleinewagner.com.
