Ultimately the exhibit is a snapshot of a small circle of artist friends affiliated via studios at a place called Little House in Cambridge. Driscoll owns the joint. Keinberger, Bay, and Gonzalez have all made art there. Bay and Gonzalez are married. Hesketh dates Keinberger.

Kristen Day, who has also had a studio at the Little House but flies solo, presents a trio of thrift-store-style portraits of celebrities Ms. Lohan, Ms. Winehouse, and Ms. Hilton with the slogan written across the bottom: “Thank/heaven for little/girls.” It’s a delicious sarcastic jab at these tabloid bad “little girls” as well as the “little girls” whose interest fuels their, uh, careers. Day’s awkward painting, which makes the ladies look warped and gooney, only makes it funnier.
