The message embedded in the tongue-in-cheek formula, that is the exhibition’s title, suggests that the artist’s role is to find inspiration in the unusual and to create enigmatic and thought provoking works. -Stephanie von Behr

When I think of magic, I initially think of a little girl with a wand pretending to be a fairy princess. This exhibition claims that creating excellent art is like performing a magic trick- as the viewer you don’t know quite how it happened but you see the results and of how something original (a blank canvas) transformed into something extraordinary (a painting). The works shown are playful and colorful, just as you would expect from a magic show.
