You're Alice and Baton Rouge Gallery is the rabbit hole.
You have entered a Wonderland, just as intriguing and exciting — and maybe a little bit disturbing — as the one where the Mad Hatter roamed.
You have entered the Surreal Salon, which this year is celebrating its 10th show.
The surprising, distorted, transformative visions of 62 artists from five countries and 19 states is realized in paintings and sculptures and ceramic pieces.
The fantastical reaches warp drive on Jan. 27 with the Surreal Salon Soiree, where guests actually become a part of the gallery's surreal scene.
