Beyond the Tartan: Bill Wightman

Jan. 26 – March 6

One of these works sold at an art auction for $300. I have to admit that I was disappointed!

Although many of the works in Bill Wightman's exhibition are intentionally playful, often behind or beyond this sense of play lie other realms of exploration. For example, in the body of work entitled “Careers I’ll Never Have," the images of Wightman as a professional working in a variety of settings explore his self-realized limitations, whether they be aptitude, abilities, resources, etc. The “faked” scenes also intend to address our own instances of fakery when convincing others of our expertise, skills, etc.
