“Stoked to announce my new curated exhibit ‘Nerdstalgia’! For those of y’all that know me, I’m nerdy AF. To this day I still play dungeons and dragons weekly like that 15 year old looking for a magical escape. After the pandemic, catching up with a lot of artists, I was excited to hear how many took refuge in nerdy pursuits of their past. I decided then, I wanna see the nerd origin story that shaped the artist they are today.”

‘Nerdstalgia’ will showcase new works from over 30 incredible artists, all mind melding with their inner nerd.
