Opening Reception: Saturday, August 27 from 7pm to 10pm


Olly Olly, an alternative art space in Fairfax, Virginia, presents Lush Life. Co-curated by Yue Li, Lush Life is an immersive and experiential hyper-color art exhibition that creates a dreamy world of luscious extravagance. Deliciously subversive and absurd, Lush Life interrogates materialism, contrasts excessiveness with art-world sustainability, and connects the artistic fantasy to the mundanity of the artist’s day-to-day life and practice. Join Olly Olly on Saturday, August 27, 2016, 7pm-10pm for a dreamworld extravaganza complete with pastel-palette rooftop pool party and buffet, and spend an evening with these amazing artists:

  • Naomi Christianson
  • Alice Gadzinski
  • Yue Li
  • Kevin Michael Runyon
  • Bonner Sale

Olly Olly wants to nourish the body and the community as well. They will be collecting healthy non-perishable food items for the Food Bridge Program at Britepaths, which provides short-term emergency food assistance to Fairfax County area residents who are in crisis. They encourage you to bring a healthy non-perishable food item to donate. The Food Bridge Program is most in need of cooking oil, brown rice, dried beans, canned fruit in its own juices, canned tomato products, and pasta sauce.

Olly Olly, located at 10417 Main Street, 2nd Floor in Fairfax, VA, is open for special events and by appointment. Lush Life will be on view at Olly Olly from August 27, 2016 through September 17, 2016. Please call 703-789-6144 or visit https://www.facebook.com/events/1701285750122908/ for more information.
