From today’s HuffPo:
“ROUND HOLE, SQUARE PEG” presented by Artists Corner Gallery and World of Wonder Productions (producer of RuPaul’s television show, Drag Race) enjoyed a successful debut at the recent 2016 photo l.a. at the LA Mart on January 22-24. The exhibition moves to the Artists Corner Gallery with an opening art party on Saturday, February 6, from 7-11pm. The exhibition features groundbreaking visual archetypes for the new millennium to embrace.
“When I was a kid, I was literally a Round Hole in a Square Peg,” explained Tarley. “I was this weird, literate, very queer child. I got bullied all the time. I hurt a lot, I was on the edge many times and I would have wished for someone to talk to…so I really vibe with the Trevor Project. They save kids’ lives. Trevor reaches out to young people and tries to soften up all that pain. That’s why I am thrilled to put the art I love in an auction benefit for Trevor.”
