Photography on canvas, button-based fans and mixed media works offer a unique glimpse of the performer through the eyes of the artist in images that, she asserts, “are not portraits, but snippets from narratives that contain clues to what the person was truly like.”

Get This! Gallery is pleased to present Harrison Keys’ solo show, Pressure Luck. The show is comprised of mixed media drawings rendered in Keys’ signature illustrative style that evoke the innocent coyness of classic children’s book illustrations. His drawings are nothing short of seductive, as the images have a pop surrealist sentiment that is largely playful; and, at times, cynical.
