Named for a street performance movement that pitched not imposing the meaning of a happening on its audience, "Guerrilla Theater" is an exhibition of over two dozen works by papiér mâché artist Drew Zimmerman. Recurring satirical themes include the influence of advertising, the marvel of childhood toys and games, the irony of historic art "movements," and the nature of the artistic impulse in general. Surfaces in Zimmerman's work are brightly colored with found newsprint advertising and magazine paper, but he rarely wields a paint brush. Sculptural pieces using found materials and loads of cardboard infrastructure abound, and pictorial compositions the artist terms "relief collage" are also represented aplenty. Zimmerman's most recent Muse Gallery exhibition was in 2012.
