OPULENCE, DECADENCE

OPULENCE, DECADENCE CURATED BY WILLIAM PAUL THOMAS November 20th through January 3rd Opening reception, Friday December 4th 6-9pm For Lump’s latest group exhibition, artist/curator William Paul Thomas asked artists, “If you attained a surplus of something that you greatly desired, would you flaunt it, share it, hoard it, hide it, or spoil it?” This was the launch point for OPULENCE DECADENCE, which, starting Friday, welcomes an entirely new batch of artists to Lump, each of whom made new work specifically for the show.
