CHARLES CLARK GALLERY

9% - Our Big Dirty Secret

an installation by YOU & ME

January 10th - 31st

The allure of plastic is hard to resist… feather-light and filmy, soft and pliant, or strong and impervious, it can be anything you want it to be… and it’s everywhere.  But this convenient flexibility comes at a terrible, as-of-yet untold cost to us all. 9% - Our Big Dirty Secret exposes one individual’s plastic footprint of 1 year with no recycling bin to hide in.

Compelled by feelings of despair about the world’s plastic problem, collaborating artists YOU & ME wondered what a year’s worth of the average person’s single-use plastic consumption would look like - all in one place, all at one time. So they collected 53kg* of plastics and assembled it into the manifestation before you. What better time than this month of new beginnings and resolutions to examine our relationship with plastic?

*53kg is the global average individual's yearly plastic consumption
9% is the percentage of plastics that are recycled

PAST ARTISTS

Tucked in at the far end of the Tasting Room is Charles Clark. No, he's not a bar regular but our flex gallery space where we host rotating art exhibitions, born of the idea of making art accessible in unexpected places.

LAST MONTHS ARTIST

PHOTOS WITH KRAMPUS

We are pleased to announce that PHOTOS with KRAMPUS will continue this year – albeit in a strange new Covid-inspired way.

Despite postponing KRAMPUSMARKT – our annual hosting of OH Studio’s assemblage of fantastic artists and makers – until next year, we have figured out how to keep our PHOTOS with KRAMPUS tradition alive and safe for everyone.

KRAMPUS may seem a little flat this year but he's doing his socially-distanced best to accommodate his annual photo session under the circumstances. He'd love no better than to sit you on his knee, to wrap his arms around you, but Dr. Henry said not this year - so that will have to wait 'til next.

Visit any time 12-8pm Sun-Thurs / 12-10pm Fri-Sat and take your own photo with KRAMPUS. **Be sure to share: #strangefellowsbrewing and you might win a little gift from KRAMPUS**
