“There is a sort of visual excitement that happens when unlike things are pushed together,” says ZaPow gallery co-owner Lauren Patton. As Patton points out, the kids who grew up in the ’70s through the ’90s are now living in the adult world. “Much of this show is the result of artists taking images from childhood and thrusting them into aggressive, mature or creepy situations,” she says. In addition to the eerie artwork, the opening boasts live music from the Thick as Thieves Guitar Duo and free beer from Asheville Pizza and Brewing Co. Saturday, Feb. 8, 7-9 p.m. Free. zapow.com.
