As the year rounds out, the ever-popular annual members’ show is on display at Station Gallery. For the 19th year, the gallery highlights the best that our creative and talented membership has to offer. The development of this year’s show was particularly satisfying to watch. You may recall earlier this summer, an on-line poll determined the supreme theme. Rock, Paper, Scissors ruled.
There was something about this trio of nouns that proved more tangible than previous ones. The artists’ responses were amazing.
Now, many will be familiar with the rules of this hand game of chance. I personally need a little more time to wrap my head around what wins in a game of RPS. We all know that scissors beats paper, because the scissors cut paper. We are also aware that rock beats scissors because the rock breaks the scissors. That’s easy. But, I’ve never been able to figure out how paper beats rock. I guess they say that a paper can cover a rock—so much for the rocks being used as paperweights. Anyways, those are the rules for me to figure out. I’m two thirds of the way there.
Drop by and check out the show. And don’t forget to vote for your fave in our Rock, Paper, Scissors: It’s your choice! people’s choice award.
