Dr. Skrap's Completely Worthless Horoscopes (March 28 - April 10)

Aries 3/21-4/19 
You find it increasingly frustrating to hear co-workers argue philosophies that don’t have common sense on their side. You can understand why they get more and more fervent about their stances. Where there aren’t facts to back up their arguments, all they have control of is their volume.

Taurus 4/20-5/20 
The neighbors will be raking their yard while you’re still waiting for the snow to melt from yours. This could be bad or good depending on your persepctive.

Gemini  5/21-6/21 
Winter is finally coming to a close... and those idiots told you you needed snow tires. Now they’ll probably tell you you need a sump pump. Idiots.

Cancer  6/22-7/22 
The answer is smoked pork. You figure out the question.

 Leo  7/23-8/22
It’s amazing how you and your family can all abandon nearly all of the things you gave up for lent on one Easter Brunch!

Virgo  8/23-9/22
Your mother in law is coming to visit, so you’ll want to start putting off work now that you’ll have to come in and do over the weekend.

Libra  9/23-10/22
You sit at the kitchen table with a pile of bills in front of you and wonder what happened to the good old days when all you needed to do to make problems go away was turn up the volume.

Scorpio 10/23-11/21
Your heart sinks when you see the person you’ve been secretly in love with since junior high school and they’ve put on a few... dozen pounds. The magic is dead. Oh, and like you’re looking any better with your own spare tire there, sexy!

Sagittarius 11/22-12/21 
The feeling is in the air. It’s time to pull out the golf clubs for the year, take out the nine empty beer cans, the stale pack of sunflower seeds that mice have been enjoying all winter and it look like you need to invest in some new range balls.

Capricorn  12/22-1/19
You didn’t much care for working on that part of the year when it was beautiful outside in September. Why the hell would you suddenly want to work on it now?

Aquarius 1/20-2/18
You high schools mates called to tell you they want to get the old band back together. So that means they want to borrow your van again and have you pack up the stuff after each show while they chase girls. Ah... good times.

 Pisces  2/19-3/20
That’s funny. You’d swear that fit just fine when you last wore it in October. The dryer must be broken.

The Salon Exhibit: Opening Reception

Posted on August 29, 2014

Saturday, August 30, 6-10 p.m.

902 Main St.   

The third annual Salon Exhibition, inspired by the Paris Salon Des Refuses of 1863, showcases the works of local and regional artists who have not been accepted into other local juried exhibitions, including VOICES and the DuMA Biannual. Over the past three years, the Salon has given artists a second chance to present their work to the community, and has highlighted the vast growth of Dubuque’s up-and-coming art scene. The Salon was initiated in 2012 to promote and empower both emerging and experienced artists, and create new opportunities and wider exposure for participating artists.

This year, the 4400 square foot gallery space will be home to the works of 26 artists. A great variety of styles will be represented, including photography, paintings, drawings, fiber works, metal and wood sculptures, glass works, and more. The Salon not only showcases the works of new artists, but also encourages the participation of returning artists. This allows the community to witness the growth of both individual artists, and our arts community as a whole. The opening reception will be held at 902 Main St., Saturday, August 30, from 6 to 10 PM. There is a $10 suggested donation. The event will include a live mural painted by artists Jay Schleidt and Brock Muench, who have collaborated on large scale works in Iowa City, and live music from Mama Bird, a blues-rock band whose members have been performing together locally since 1997. Refreshments and hor d’oeuvres will be provided. All ages are welcome.

The Salon will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 3 to 7pm. Exhibit will close on October 4th.
