Wow-house is a group show featuring visual artists reinterpreting their esthetic through object-based mediums such as furniture and the decorative arts.  The pieces are coming down off the wall and entering the physical space for interaction and function. Anchored by the unique furniture design of Eric Johnson (Thistle Objects), this show promises to reinvent the notion of the household vernacular and showcase the selected artists within a context that they are exploring for the first time at Johalla Projects. This is not a genre or a movement. This is Wow-house.
