"The Gangs all Here" Show at Bottleneck Gallery

This Friday, November 16th, is the opening for the group show "The Gangs all Here" featuring your favorite group, bros, family, bff, and more. Here is Bottlenecks description of the show:

"Friendship- it's the best ship of them all. Your friends are the people who make you laugh until you cry, are there for you when you are down, and pick you up when you fall. Bottleneck is set to honor our friends with "The Gang Is All Here," an exhibit dedicated to the art industry's legendary cliques, groups, buds, and gangs. Each artist will present work based on their favorite classic batch of friends, pulling from songs, films, and books. So come by and bring your gang to meet ours."

For my contribution for the show I chose the Hogwarts gang with Hermione, Luna, Harry, Ron, Ginny, Fred, and George. As the books developed (and the One Who Must Not Be Named gained more power), this group a lot on their plate (saving the world and all) that there was almost no time to just have fun, relax, and just have a good time. So this is my take on one of their fun times, testing some of Fred and George's fireworks.
