    In collaboration with The Arts Center Corvallis, Ugly Art Room presents Fare Thee Well Postcard Show:

    Simply stated the term “fare thee well” is defined as “a state of perfection,” “thoroughly sound” and “without any flaws.”  For its next postcard show Ugly Art Room is asking artists to explore these themes. What does perfection look like and how is it reached? How is it measured? Is it possible to reach? What must one sacrifice to get there?
