Shrewdness of Apes presents: Shoebox

Hilary Nauman co-curator of Shrewdness of Apes

Local artists Hilary Nauman and Michael Boyd began exhibiting their work in pop-up shops, outdoor markets and at The City Flea.  The free-form spontaneity of this kind of exhibition has carried over and has led them to open Shrewdness of Apes - an art gallery that is different from what you might be used to.

SoA, located on 7th Street in downtown Covington, focuses on contemporary and emerging artists and exhibits that are not only unusual, but invite entries from anyone with an interest in creating something unique, special and out of the ordinary.
