While the old adage may go something like one persons trash is another persons treasure, local artist Ryan Clemens has built a wealth of beautifully striking images from the decayed and discarded. Morphing a raw, urban aesthetic into emotion-provoking whimsy, Clemens headlines Rothick Art Haus newest exhibit Beneath the Broken Bottles and Cigarette Butts. Joining him are artists Danny Schutt and Cody Mustachio Lusby (not just a clever nickname, this man has a wicked stache), both masters of mixed media arts. Rounding out the opening reception will be live music provided by DJ James of KXLU, a live art session by Big Toe and tasty Latin/Asian morsels from Dos Chinos gourmet food truck.
