Luke Dubois Hindsight is Always 20/20 examines the history of American political discourse through the metaphor of vision. Drawing from the annual State of the Union addresses given by Presidents to Congress, ‘Hindsight’ consists of a single Snellen-style eye chart for each president who gave State of the Union addresses. Instead of the typical characters present in an eye chart, the piece employs words drawn from their speeches, presented in order of most frequent (top line) to least frequent (bottom line) word. The result is a startlingly clear snapshot of the lexicon of each presidency, containing a mix of historically topical keywords and rhetoric unique to each president and the time period in which they served in office. This exhibit and accompanying programming are a timely fit to this Presidential election season. In addition to “Hindsight is Always 20/20”, Luke will display a new that touches on the 2012 presidential campaign

SMILING MAD DESIGNS & INKELLO LETTERPRESS (801.5, suite 3 Massachusetts St.)
WONDER FAIR (803 Massachusetts St.) www.wonderfair.com
100 Ghost Stories Portfolio Exchange | Print Exhibition | Zine Release | Haunted Installation
6:15 pm: Meredith Moore, Dustin Williams, and Gallery Artists will give a presentation on gallery works and the Haunted Installation
The tradition of “100 Ghost Stories” began in Edo Japan as a popular Autumn-time parlor amusement involving 100 lit candles, 100 storytellers, and a single extinguishing puff of breath from each when their story was told. Darkness and tension gathered gradually amongst the assembled storytellers as the night crept in and candles went out. Meanwhile, camaraderie and over-active imaginations formed an invisible ward against chillier realities—the impending winter, and growing political unrest in their nation…Sound familiar?
This Halloween-Election season, Wonder Fair has invited ten artists and ten storytellers to participate in our own version of 100 Ghost Stories—taking the form of a print portfolio exchange, an art exhibition, a haunted installation, a zine publication, an evening of ghostly story-telling, and a special evening of film screenings.
Wonder Fair’s 100 Ghost Stories begins with Kansas City artist Dustin Williams, founder, designer, and ghost investigator in the KC-based Paranormal Artist Coalition (paranormalartistcoalition.tumblr.com). Williams’ colorful geometric design aesthetic is reminiscent of Roger Hargreaves’ ever-popular 1970s Mr. Men and Little Miss childrens’ book series, though Williams’ work features cleaner, more sinuous lines and wittier, more adult banter. Williams’ witty wordplay will be everywhere present in 100 Ghost Stories, from his haunted video store installation—where guests can ask for a special “dismembership card,”—to our gallery of original screenprinted masks, and the pages of our ghost-themed zine. A long-time Wonder Fair collaborator, 100 Ghost Stories will mark Williams' first large-scale exhibition in Lawrence.
Nine additional mask artists hail from the overlapping realms of illustration, printmaking, and graphic design, and include local artists Christa Dalien, Rudy Marron, Jeff McKee, Alex Schubert, and Teal Wilson as well as nationally-known illustrators Theo Ellsworth, Lizz Hickey, John Malta, and Jennifer Parks (none of whom have previously been shown in Lawrence). Each mask artist was invited by Wonder Fair curator Meredith Moore to create an edition of ten masks, suitable for framing or for wearing; the resulting edition of 100 masks creating our printed version of 100 Ghost Stories. “But ours are not the latex-molded, Hollywood-sponsored Halloween masks that they’ll be slinging at the ‘Spirit Bootique’ this season,” Moore explains. “Rather, I hoped to bring back some of the playfulness of kitschy, super-saturated pop-toned paper masks made in the 1950s and 60s, and I wanted to tap into the narrative depth of Japanese ukiyoe woodcuts made to illustrate the popular 100 Ghost Stories.”
Fleshing out and giving depth to the two-dimensional mask edition are ten short ghost stories, written by ten authors selected by locals Kate Lorenz and Justin Runge. Their stories will appear in the 100 Ghost Stories zine, and will take center stage at a special evening of Ghost Story readings on Thursday evening, October 4th, from 8:00-10:00pm. Echoing the traditional Japanese 100 Ghost Stories format, listeners will gather close to hear authors read their stories by candlelight. Authors include local and national talents Crystal Boson, Mick Cottin, Phillip Garland, BJ Hollars, Megan Kaminski, Kate Lorenz, Iris Moulton, Daniel Rolf, and Justin Runge.
And for the final chapter of 100 Ghost Stories, October 18th Wonder Fair will co-host a special evening of Comedic-Horror film screenings, presented in cooperation with Liberty Hall. Springfield, Missouri Filmmaker Brook Linder will join members of his cast and crew to present the first Kansas screening of Ghoul School (http://ghoulschoolfilm.tumblr.com/), a 25-minute short film following two best friends who break into their high school to steal an exam, and find instead the wrathful spirit of an ex-principal. “It’s The Breakfast Club meets Poltergeist,” followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. Linder will then introduce his pick for the horror film double-header, ‘The Burbs, a cult classic ‘80s film starring Tom Hanks, Carrie Fisher, and Corey Feldman.
With enough artists, events, installations, publications, and programming to make your head spin (all the way around,) 100 Ghost Stories represents an unprecedented level of curatorial complexity, and showcases the Wonder Fair’s dedication to bringing innovation, creativity, and most of all, levity to the Lawrence arts scene. It’s only at Wonder Fair, September 28th to October 21st: Be there, be scared!

UNDO This month's final friday show at Lost Art Space continues the theme of the salon style exhibition of small and mid-sized works by members of the Fresh Produce Art Collective as well as several guest artists also working in the SeedCo Studios.

In addition to the current exhibit, new works, deliberately undone, or half-finished will be interspersed, allowing the audience to have a window into the processes of the works, as well as possibly enter into the dialogue. The finished works will be shown as part of October's Final Friday show, which will celebrate the one year anniversary of Fresh Produce downtown as the Lost Art Space(!!?!). Check out lostartspace.com for more information about upcoming exhibits, and seedcostudios.com for information about events and open studios.

FATSO'S (1016 Massachusetts St.)
New Beginnings by Marie McKenzie An art show featuring the unveiling of the new Fatso’s sign created as a tribute to the legacy of Gavin Smith Fatso’s Public House and Stage opens its doors to the Final Friday art community, with an exhibition of artwork by Marie McKenzie. New Beginnings calls attention to the diverse and beautiful ramifications of the aging process. McKenzie explores the cycles of life, creating an awareness to how things are created, grow and blossom to become a part of our immediate surroundings and then finally wither and disappear completely. The ancient artifacts and depletion of our resources are the very remnants of our human existence. McKenzie explores these discarded objects around us with a vision of innovation as examined in her process and in her depiction of post-revolutionary means of production. Through repurposing found wood by sanding down and then polishing the surface with multiple layers of paint, destroying and rebuilding, McKenzie mimics the energy of life and the expression that results. New Beginnings opens on September 28th, the two year anniversary of the late Gavin Smith's passing, who was the former owner of Fatso's bar. His wife, Melissa Smith who owns and operates the bar, commissioned McKenzie to create a wooden business sign that will be displayed above the front door. McKenzie, a long-time employee of Fatso’s developed the sign’s design with Smith in mind to commemorate his life and incredible support for local artists and musicians. During Smith’s final weeks, he wished to become a part of Final Fridays and showcase local art talent at Fatso’s. McKenzie recalls, “ I will never forget his phone call to ensure that a show of my work would go into place, his support resonates with me and I am very excited to put together a beautiful wooden business sign that commemorates Gavin and his legacy, and to decorate the walls of Fatso’s with artwork.” A graduate of the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, McKenzie creates illusive paintings of rust and corrosion on high relief wood sculptures. As a local artist, McKenzie has participated in several group exhibitions in Lawrence, including shows at Hobbs Lawrence Art party, Marisco’s, the Kansas Union, and the Lawrence Arts Center. McKenzie has also exhibited solely at Barbershop Gallery during First Fridays in Kansas City, Missouri.

THE INVISIBLE HAND GALLERY (846 Pennsylvania St.) www.invisiblehandgallery.com
Jessica Wohl “Dark Inside”
opens Final Friday, September 28th and runs through October 22nd
From the artist: Wohl combines obsessive mark-making with images of contemporary American life to convey a sense of underlying discomfort. In her series of sewn drawings, the artist embroiders the surface of found portrait photographs. Repeating stitches of thread conceal each subject's face, creating a barrier -both physical and psychological- between sitter and viewer.
“The handmade mark is is evidence of our human condition -that is, we are not as perfect as we may seem,” Wohl says. “Whether drawing or sewing, I mark by hand to embrace the imperfections of a society that relentlessly pursues composure.”
Wohl will also exhibit a selection of works on found magazine pages. In regards to these drawn interventions, Wohl states, “their linear marks represent what we keep hidden; our desires, secrets, unknown actions and disturbing thoughts.” Through these ink drawings, the artist explores the underbelly of alluring images that we as consumers aspire to resemble.

FINAL FRIDAYS IN NORTH LAWRENCE (AFTER-PARTY ART SHOW)
FRANK'S NORTH STAR TAVERN (508 Locust)
Obscura Femina: A photographic tale of the beautifully insane
To tell this melancholy tale of how the desire for beauty can drive one mad, and can cause her to commit acts of pure evil to achieve it, we used imagery derived from early 20th century mysticism, the seance for entertainment, and the macabre purity of simulating wet plate photography. The images send a shiver down your spine and tingle your sixth sense.
Obscura (Latin): Dark; Femina (Latin): Women
Featuring the lovely ladies of The Foxy by Proxy Revue. Special thanks to Kate Von Achen.
