You and me – we’re nothing but mammals, that’s why we do it like they do it in Discovery Channel. Well, if you asked me, watching the first ten minutes of PBS National Geographic’s Wild America, it’s like getting hit with a dart from a tranquilizer gun. But yes, birds do it, even educated flies do it – it’s pollinating and aiding in the propagation of the species. The latest show at The Lodge Gallery for their summer 2014 program expanded on that train of thought and the variety of artworks alluding to such will leave you hot under the collar. Curated by Keith Schweitzerand Jason Patrick Voegele, the Mating Season is a profusion of the hidden feasts and proclivities that we seldom see. Pollinating the art landscape are the works of: Lina Puerta, Juan Fontanive, George Boorujy, Maxi Cohen, Liza Béar, Monique Mantell, Brian Adam Douglas, Anita Cruz-Eberhard, Sarah Bereza, Sirikul Pattachote, Ryan McLennan, Leif Solem, Frank Webster, Herb Smith and Tiffany Bozic. Time to get busy and get your art on for the season has begun in earnest.
