For a year, Jeremy Gregory has been furiously making posable puppets out of found materials—while they seem quite alive, they do not seem quite healthy. They are zombies clutching toothbrushes (why? Yet it’s right), or skateboarders blinded by head bandages. Gregory photographs them on the streets of Tacoma (where he lives and teaches at the awesome Tacoma School of the Arts), and his solo show Little Big Deal will unveil 30 puppets plus puppet portraits and a puppet stop-motion short film. A big juried exhibition by other underground artists, inspired by superheroes and supervillains, opens simultaneously across the hall; the puppets will have friends, maybe enemies.
