Lasso Gallery at the Butcher Shop announces its inaugural show:




INVOLVING VIOLENCE runs from September 15th – October 20th

Saturday gallery hours: 12pm – 5pm or by appointment 


Artists included in this show are Joan Dobkin, Dara Greenwald, Benjamin June, Dustin Klare, Masaco Kuroda, Alan Lerner, Regina Mamou, Sari Maxfield, Jessica Peterson, Chelcie Porter, Jason Stec, Cordell Thurman, Josh Winegar and Krista Wortendyke. 


Involving Violence, curated by Lasso co-directors, Carrie Ruckel and Karin Patzke presents work by artists addressing the violence and hostility portrayed on television, movies, newspapers, and other media, and acted out in real life. Violence permeates around us, yet most find ways to navigate our daily activities by distancing confrontation and hostility. The artists included in this exhibition attempt to negotiate contemporary, historical, and personal events, hoping to resolve and come to terms with the violent actions of society.
