Steve Lambert and the Budget Gallery All-Stars
Featuring Works by: Cynthia Yardley, Adam Connelly, Steve Lambert, Jetro Martinez, Tucker Nichols, and Annie Vought
Curated by: Clark Buckner and Steve Lambert
The Budget Gallery was a guerrilla art collective that staged spontaneous art exhibitions in under-utilized public spaces. They maintained a democratic commitment to exhibiting the work of any interested artists, but required that artists relinquish the work to be either sold, stolen, or abandoned at the opening. The Budget Gallery’s shows challenged the commodity-fetishism that plagues the art world and reclaimed public spaces from the hegemony of commercial images. Their show at Mission 17 opened in conjunction with “open-studios” events at two local art studios, The Blue Studio and Art Explosion.
