Andrew Sawyer's celebrity portraits.

Of Temporary Tattoos and Tom Cruise

Lauren Murrow | May 23, 2013 | Lifestyle Story Shopping

The art progenies of the Rhode Island School of Design are taking over Proxy this Saturday to present "Everything Must Go," a cross between an art exhibit and a yard sale. The RISD-affiliated participants include sculptors, digital media artists, industrial and graphic designers, photographers, architects, and printmakers. All are exploring the idea of impermanence, a theme that's translated in a myriad of playful and interactive ways. Laurence Srinivasan, for example, has created an ice sculpture of the Transamerica Pyramid (he'll be selling miniature Transamerica pyramid ice cube molds for your locavore cocktails), while Adam Gray is showcasing his neon-painted Hella Slingshots, made from forked tree branches. Paul Hayes is reprising his Resolution project, in which viewers take up paintbrushes to participate in the unveiling of a final image. Robert Howard is presenting "Head Count," consisting of 19,843 bead-sized cement-mortar headsone for every day the artist has been alivedisplayed in a five-gallon bucket. And Andrew Sawyer has fashioned a weirdly mesmerizing array of Swarovski crystal and googley-eye encrusted celebrity portraits, a statement on how, with fame, an individual's appearance becomes "for sale." Every piece in the exhibit is for sale—Tom Cruise's bedroom eyes includedand all proceeds go directly to the artists.

Saturday, 5/25 at Proxy (Hayes St. and Octavia St.), 9am-3pm; Biergarten reception to follow.
