Hey, You Never Know Curated by Kenny Schachter

Art * Cafe * Fashion

In a storefront a block north of Houston, Kenny Schachter will curate a
large-scale group exhibition with a continuous slate of readings, a curated
section of fashion designers and a fully operational cafe. The show will
remain open with extended hours for a period of two full months. The range
of exposition history of the individual artists varies widely, some showing
here for the first time while others have extensively exhibited;
additionally, works will be displayed from the UK, Mexico, and Asia.

The title of the show derives from the slogan of the New York lottery
advertising campaign, encouraging in a veiled tone the chance to get rich
easy by selecting winning numbers. In this rough and tumble economic
climate, who wouldn't want the opportunity to cash in, then cash out of the
constant hustle and rat race? Can you play the lottery for fun, or is it a
false hope to a quick escape route? Sometimes it feels like facing the day
is a veritable crapshoot as to what will be encountered at any given
moment. In this exhibition of painting, sculpture, video and installation,
you never know what you will find--maybe even something that pertains to
the title.

Smart lotto players pick their own numbers!
