Pinhead(s), Tara Vargas, mixed media quilt, Local Art, Open Call Art Exhibit at Highwire Gallery, 2040 Frankford Avenue. Tara Vargas‘ quilt, Pinhead(s), takes an old fashioned task and injects punk. An homage to The Ramones, the quilt has zippers, ripped denim, duct tape border and portraits of the band. DoN was transfixed by the time trip aspect of the piece mixing the Victorian era with Seventies squalor in a 21st Century artwork. The effect is sublime combining metaphors for youthful anarchy with artful utilitarianism, it’s extraordinary. Read more about Local Art at the new www.DoNArTNeWs.com Philadelphia Art News Blog
