KALEID Gallery presents HOAXMONSTER: an investigation into hoaxes, myths, monsters, and mystery by Kate Stewart and Trina Merry

Why do some people believe hoaxes, even after they’ve been debunked? Why do stories of monsters persist for centuries? By turns playful, grotesque, glib and profound, Trina Merry and Kate Stewart use paint, ink, and things they found at the scene to explore the anatomy of a hoax and why we love to be lied to.

Artists’ Reception: First Friday, April 3rd, 7pm-9pm
This event is part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS artwalk. Free and open to the public.

Live music by: The Complications (7:30pm), Eric Ostrom (8:30pm)
