During the summer of 1990, inspired by a Surrealist drawing show at the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (then called the Arkansas Arts Center), I developed a Friday after-work café and theater venue called the Carnal Leap Cabaret (named after a Futurist cocktail the ingredients I have long forgotten).

This show features the work of ten Koplin Del Rio artists and completes the series of three IDENTITY exhibitions introducing the gallery’s artists to a Seattle audience.

They all invite the viewer to interact with the imagery and engage with the work in a manner that allows two narratives—both the artist’s and the viewer’s—to play out over time.
