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.

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.
