It’s disenchanted story time at Wonder Fair this September, when long-time friends Randy Bolton, Michael Krueger and Tom Reed take over to push the physical boundaries of prints and multiples into the 3rd dimension. Sculptural installations and large-scale prints will transform the gallery into a 21st-century nursery rhyme set—where childhood innocence is subtly undermined by sly modern disillusionment. "It's not so much about childhood lessons," quips Krueger, "but about the times when you must painfully examine your [present] morals." Nostalgic and satirical, witty and worrying, always whimsical: in short, fun for all ages!
