There's been a changing of the guard at Lump, Raleigh's best gallery for weird art, with Kelly McChesney handing over the directorship to April Childers. To get a sense of the perspective Childers will bring to the gallery, you could hardly do better than to check out her show (which was booked by McChesney before the leadership change), Sensitive Situation, which runs through April 28 after this opening reception. Childers's work integrates objects and images from pop culture and her personal life to shatter and rebuild the context of the everyday. Her show opens alongside one by Maria Britton, Childers's partner in the itinerant LOG (Low Occupancy Gallery) project; Britton's work in Low Relief blends painting, sewing, and sculpture to probe "femininity and feminism, high and low forms of art making, and dreams and disasters."
