Unjuried art shows are a bit like estate sales. Behind the mostly emptied cosmetics containers, and just to the left of the Lone Star bottle cap collection, you find it: that thing you didn’t know existed and completely gives purpose to your hunt. For the second year, local collective art gallery space 500X (500 Exposition Ave.) opens up its walls to whoever wants to hang their goods. Vetting is nonexistent at the Hot and Sweaty Show, so the building fills with a spectrum of work. Some of it you’ll love. Other pieces, you’ll run from. But like any proper rummage event, you’ll find diamonds lurking in the rough. Locate ’em, polish ’em and love ’em from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday. The show stays up until June 30 and can be viewed on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Visit 500x.org.
Saturdays, Sundays. Starts: June 15. Continues through June 30, 2013
