Local artist Julie Armbruster holds her first solo gallery show, Hoard Reflex, an exhibition of new work. The collection builds on some of Armbruster's familiar narratives. "Characters like Potato Boy, the WoodChucks, Elmore, the Golden Unicorn and Professor Wunderbar are placed in fantastically detailed environments as they live out their unique potentials," says a press release for the show. The work includes nine large-format panels, smaller pieces, sculptures and artifacts, and collaborations with musician Dulci Ellenberger and designer R. Brooke Priddy. Hoard Reflex opens at The Satellite Gallery on Friday, Sept. 6, with a reception from 7-10 p.m. It remains on display through Monday, Oct. 21. http://www.juliearmbruster.net.
