Opening Reception June 22, 2018, 7-10pm
Fisher Parrish Gallery is pleased to present The Ashtray Show, an exhibition of original small works by over 80 contemporary artists and designers. The Ashtray Show will commemorate our 1-year anniversary as Fisher Parrish Gallery, and is the 4th in a series of exhibitions that focus on the home and the objects in it – the sculptural objects to which we ascribe a simple function. From clearly “designed” and functional works, to more conceptual explorations of a specific function, these exhibitions engage both established and emerging artists and designers in an important dialogue – pushing their own disciplinary boundaries and allowing for a deeper understanding of the object.
Following our inaugural exhibition, The Paperweight Show at Fisher Parrish Gallery, The Ashtray Show celebrates another seemingly obsolete object from the mid-century-modern deskscape – now perhaps made relevant again by the legalization of marijuana. Smoking is back envogue and we can all finally start accessorizing again!"
Fisher Parrish Gallery is a collaboration between Zoe Fisher of the former 99¢ Plus Gallery and HJGS and Patrick Parrish of Patrick Parrish Gallery.
