  • Terribly Odd Art
Self-deprecation seems to be a given in the mind of an artist. So as far as stereotypes go, Michael Reyes goes for the gold by describing his art pieces, under the name Terribly Odd, as "exhaustingly mediocre work." What follows, however, goes beyond stereotypes and into a world of uniquely dark and somber art. For his latest show, Of Misery & Medicine, Reyes explores the surgical realm through six new pieces, focusing on how physicians operated when medicine was a much more grisly practice. Take advantage of the champagne bar at Pop Gallery, and remind yourself why it's great to not be alive at a time during which strychnine was commonly found in a physician's toolbox.

5 p.m. Saturday, May 7 | Pop Gallery, Disney Springs, 1504 E. Buena Vista Drive | 407-827-8200 | | free
