The Filthy Arts


Who says dirty fingernails are always a bad thing? Why not gather to admire and reward them? Dirty Fingernails Say A Lot III: A Celebration of Pure Printmaking, the new exhibition at the Foundry Art Centre (520 North Main Center, St Charles), features art by printmakers who have all dirtied their digits in the name of their craft. Hellion artist Tom Huck (of Evil Prints fame) judges the show, and also selects the five pieces that will receive cash prizes. Dirty Fingernails opens with a free public reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 13. The show remains up through Friday, February 23, and the gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday.

Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Jan. 13. Continues through Feb. 23, 2012
