Luck has long been used to justify fortunes both good and bad, explain the unexplainable, accept that which is unchangeable and rationalize what is deserved.

“Good Luck” the exhibition imagines a life relegated to nothing but chance: the uncontrollable, relentless and unbiased eye of fate as the decider.  It is a modern shrine to hope, congregated by personalized objects
of reverence, symbol and satire. Good Luck.

Down on your luck or feeling lucky, please join us:

59 Market Street, Portland, Maine   207.347.3545

the stache pag + the maine vla = tonight

tonight could be one of those nights that you never forget.  if you are in portland, you must attend this.  watch the video to get a feel for the craziness. 

most importantly, all the proceeds from this night go to benefit the maine volunteer lawyers for the arts.  this is a awesome non-profit group that in the past year alone enabled over 35 maine artists to receive over $200,000 worth of legal services. this is a really great resource for all arts communities.

if you do not live in maine, here is a link to a list of other vla groups that might be in your community.

but for now, press play and we all hope to see you there tonight.
