"Mayhem, Mischief, and Monsters," Tad's latest solo show, will give mere mortal spectators license to create Frankensteins with which to do their bidding. Each of Carpenter's monstrous screen prints on display come split into two sections, a top and a bottom, which are all available for private experimentation (purchase, that is). Oh, what maddening secrets await the pour soul who procures a frighteningly robotic head, only to affix it to the reanimated torso of an undead zombie? The mind reels at the limitless combinations*! (*Actual combinations may be limited.)
Test your hand at the screen prints, or check out Tad's woodprints, plate designs, and paintings at the Bear and Bird Gallery, upstairs inside Tate's Comics (4566 N. University Dr., Lauderhill). The exhibit is free to attend, though it will mysteriously disappear, leaving no trace, by April 11. Visit bearandbird.com, or tadcarpenter.com for more info.
