Granny's Punk-Ass Pants
posted:
When I was a kid my Grandparents moved to Miami Beach leaving behind all their old winter clothes. Occasionally I would snoop around in storage finding old moth-balled treasures.
OMG! My Granny's old checkered pants fit me! They are totally Punk-Ass! 
Yay! I have new pants! I'll bet they're from Bergdorf Goodman...
Yay! New pants, itchy pants, checkered past pants!...
Oooops!.....
Torn and worn, now they're MY Punk-Ass pants! I'm ready for Art School!

“F.U.,” an exhibition that examines and beautifully illustrates U.S. Fair Use laws as they pertain to artists, will open Memorial Day weekend at WFG Gallery. As  show curator Norm Magnusson explains, “If you’re an artist engaged in any kind of collage, you will most likely at some point create something that uses parts of something else. When you do, you’ll be subject to Fair Use laws,” he says. “That which the arts community calls ‘appropriation,’ the legal community calls either ‘infringing’ and other might call just ‘theft.’ ” Thieving or borrowing? Is it a great compliment of flatter usages or it is a major F.U. to the originating artist? Come decide for yourself at the WFG Gallery.

The show will feature a small section explaining the concept of Fair Use and will include works by David Anthone, Julie Chase, Tasha Depp, Valerie Fanarjian, Chad Ferber, David Goldin, Stevan Jennis, Norm Magnusson, Molly Rausch and James Westwater, all of whom use preexisting imagery in their works. For each artist’s pieces, gallery visitors will be asked to consider whether it is Fair Use or not.


  F.U. opens on May 26th, with an artists’ reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The show will be on display at the WFG Gallery until July 22, 2012.

The WFG Gallery is located at 31 Mill Hill Road, Woodstock, NY 12498. (845) 679-6003. http://wfggallery.com/ Hours of Operation are daily from 11-5, closed Wednesdays.
