Studio leftovers, junk food, craft-store oddities, urban detritus, and remnants of failed first attempts are all lowbrow materials incorporated into contemporary artworks appearing in The Tyranny of Good Taste, a group exhibition featuring 16 artists from across the nation. Producing artwork during a time of extreme economic turmoil, artists included have developed abnormally resourceful and strategically inventive means by which to produce uncommonly experimental art forms. Organized with an emphasis on the (counter-) productive time spent (or wasted) in an artist's studio, the maximalist and anarchic artworks in this exhibition challenge established fine art hierarchies of value and status quo conventions of taste.

Artists include Brandon Anschultz, Mara Baker, Timothy Brown, Jared Clark, Julia Anne Goodman, Ben Harle, Michelle Hartney, Jack Henry, Matt Jacobs, Cara Krebs, Bobbi Meier, Garry Noland, Sabina Ott, Matthew Schlagbaum, and Dean Roper.

The Tyranny of Good Taste is curated by Danny Orendorff.
