House of Cards Opening Reception: 6-8 PM

House of Cards, Columbia Art League‘s new exhibit, opens Thursday, September 6th.  I previewed the show today, and it is outstanding.  It was difficult to choose a favorite for the people’s choice award, but I managed.  I collect playing cards, and I am looking forward to adding the new deck to my collection.  A sampling:


Jack of Spades by Jamie Carey Humphreys.

Six of Hearts by Kay McCarthy.

Prometheus by David Spear.


From the Window by John Fennell.

Cobra Tut by Kelly Coalier.

Where Are We Going? by Harrison Bergeron.


  1. Harrison Bergeron’s work is remarkable, considering his handicaps.
