  • 1. Merry Krishnas By Jahna Peloquin November 27, 2008 With Christmastime upon us, what better way to ring in the season than with a deconstruction of its best-known icon -- the Christmas tree. While there are no actual Christmas trees in this solo show by Andy Messerschmidt, the symbol of the season is there in spirit. Ornaments and wrapping paper make their way into the artist's collaged paintings and installations of modern-day shrines and altars, as do doilies and other bits and pieces of Americana. But this show is more than another take on American traditions; through the ancient format of the shrine, Messerschmidt presents the things we worship as a culture in a fresh way.
