"Everything Goes Better with Alcohol" - Everyday Inventors - April 7, 2004 - 1 1/2 stars

"An art show about painting and getting drunk," a show description read. This show just can't be taken seriously when the premise was to get drunk and paint the contents the evening before the opening. It was hardly an exploration of process, self-discovery or losing inhibitions to loosen up the creative mojo. The theme is a turn-off, the art is mediocre and you can't tell what artist painted what piece. "The show has legitimacy beyond the brash and garish paintings that may have been influenced by alcohol." This appears to be a statement about an ill-conceived show that may have been written under the influence of alcohol as well. A very disappointing venture from Everyday Inventors, a usually quirkier, inventive and more capable bunch. Through April 17, 2004; 317-955-7577. --Mary Lee Pappas
