Variation and Adaptations, on display 6/2/17 through 7/29/17, is an exhibit curated by Artists First, an organization that has long worked to promote the artwork of individuals challenged by physical or psychological obstacles. While typically judged by society as impaired, this organization advocates for these artists to be considered as equal, not other, within the visual art community by their unique perspectives and life experiences. Angela Gipson, Jeff Johnson, and Jimmy Holmes will each present a body of work specific to their use of media and focused examinations.
"Subterranean Books will be hosting the art work of Timothy Wagner as part of the Loop Arts Fest, with an opening reception Friday, June 23rd from 6pm to 8pm.
Timothy Wagner works as a mixed media artist using a wide variety of media from found imagery to inks. All of the art is created on reclaimed materials such as vinyl records, wood and canvas.
Timothy's work is thought-provoking and a visual language that is an approach to expression of form, space and color, referencing our natural world and its surroundings. "The ambiguity of my work is created on a subconscious level."
Work will be on display June 15 - August 31.

Whitey Morgan is an American Honky Tonk artist from Flint, Michigan. In Flint, the factories are closed, jobs are scarce and the people are bitter. Whitey sings songs these people can relate to. In much the same way his grandfather and mentor did over 3 decades ago, to a whole generation of southern transplants who came up US-23 to Flint looking for the good life. In the spirit of William Morgan, Waylon, Merle and Paycheck; Whitey’s melodies help people forget their problems for a few hours and serve as the guideline for drinking sorrows away. Emerging from the Detroit area music scene, Whitey relentlessly tours the country spreading his sound and attitude everywhere he goes. He play's honky tonk tunes in any club in any town without apology—he and his band mates drive their point home just like their families drove the cars they built on the line home from work. With a purpose.Ripping 200+ shows a year, you can count on Whitey Morgan to deliver and then some. "If I could, I'd play everyday all day. Maybe at some point, I'll be so lucky to have such an option." If you asked his feverishly loyal audience, they'd firm agree with him. "My fans are nothing short of amazing. They come back time and time again and each time they bring more & more people. That's as good as it gets in my book."and more, but at this point you are tired of reading this.

Topdog/Underdog, by Suzan-Lori Parks, is a play about two African American brothers struggling to make ends meet. Abandoned by their parents when they were teenagers, Lincoln and Booth, now in their thirties, were forced to learn to survive relying only on themselves. Lincoln, nicknamed Link, supported himself for many years of his life by hustling people at three card monte. However, after one hustle turns sour and his partner is killed, Lincoln swears off hustling and vows to earn an honest living. His wife Cookie kicks him out of their home, and Lincoln moves in with his younger brother Booth in his small, barely furnished, single room apartment. Lincoln contributes to the rent by working as an Abraham Lincoln impersonator at a local arcade, where patrons pay to re-enact Lincoln’s assassination, shooting him in the back of the head with a cap gun.
