Lit! at Chesterfield Gallery

Chesterfield Gallery is pleased to present Lit!, a group exhibition of works by Chris Ahalt, Hamm

Brushland, Jake C, David Colton, John Gordon Gauld, Sergio Garcia, Yoshinori Kondo, Joseph

Martinez, Robert Mickelsen, CalM, Adam Miller, Naturel, See One, and Dale Zinkowski.

The show is comprised of works spanning a wide array of mediums including painting, sculpture,

and digital art. While the methodology varies greatly from artist-to-artist, this exhibition

explores a common thread: a discussion on marijuana and its place in current American culture,

as each artist confronts history, society, and self, reinterpreting and challenging the

preconceived notions on the subject.

Lit! underscores the transition of perception of marijuana use from marginal to mainstream,

undistinguished to dignified. It aims to act as a survey of marijuana’s role in American art by

highlighting its place among other significant Americana and contemporary art. As such,

Renaissance style paintings with modern subject matter bridge the gap from old to new while

pipes traditionally used for smoking are elevated to elegant sculptures.
