‘Waitress’ by Jenn Meyers

Jenn Meyers wants to show the servers of our local restaurants some respect. “How do you perceive your wait staff in restaurants?” she asks. “As lifeless robots? Trained monkeys? Or maybe hardworking fellow human beings?” Using the slightly politically incorrect term “waitress,” she leads us in a visual discussion about these professionals who sometimes call us by affectionate names (I know someone who was called “honey,” “sugar” and “sweetie” all in one visit). As it should be, the paintings are in a colorful Pop Art style. Other Pop touches include framed facts about the service industry and handwritten commentary on server order pads. The opening reception is Friday, Sept. 5 from 6–8 p.m.
