Presa House presents Austin-based multidisciplinary artist Chad Rea's solo exhibition "#TheGunShow." This collection of paintings, sculptures, and digital artworks is a culmination of a lifetime of exposure to firearms and the questions surrounding guns' political and ethical issues.

Gun culture was an inescapable part of Rea's upbringing, from vivid childhood memories of killing a rabbit with a shotgun and shooting cans with his grandfathers' stockpile of firearms. Rea was still in high school when "going postal" entered the mainstream vernacular and has since watched the steady rise in daily coverage of mass shootings and senseless gun violence on the evening news.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through May 29.
