Behold, the time is at hand, fulfillment awaits us.

Good Weather presents a group exhibition of work by Shannon Bool, Anna Breininger, Tony Garbarini, and Stephen Kent at High Tide in Philadelphia titled '"May you live in interesting times"'. The exhibition illuminates the great ruse that death and ornament — among the devout and within the domestic — lead to fulfillment. Poking holes in this quixotic perception, the work in the show deploys still lifes, flowers, carpet, reflections, portals, kitsch, and decorative imagery to reveal a nostalgic veracity that is overripe and rotting.
