Kym Kemp covers the Emerald Triangle at Redheaded Blackbelt and tells us she's part of an art show in Eureka, March 3rd at 437 F St., the home of the Humboldt Kinetic Association Artist Co-op. That means awesomely huge pictures of nugs, and all around hippie weirdness in Nor-NorCal! Day-trippers, mount up.

Featuring oil paintings by Curtis Otto and photos by both Kym Kemp and Sharon Letts, and the 420 Quilt project, “'The Marijuana Show' “will embrace the elephant in the room,” writes co-organizer Alice Krause of the Humboldt Kinetic Association Artist Co-op.

Kemp's "photos of plants, people and places ... sends a message of normalcy ...[about] what many see as a counter-culture," according to the release.

"Writer/photographer, Sharon Letts, has been reporting on medical marijuana and legalization for High Times Medical Journal, Kush, Skunk, Nug Mag, and The Puffington Host. Letts also pens “Humboldt Stories,” a fictional account based on fact of the Humboldt grow scene that was featured in the Chronicle.

"St John’s Bossanova Baby will entertain from 6 to 9 p.m., Street Beats Dance Company will have a break dance performance by the REGULATORS, Rocky and Dan the Man Valdez at 7:30. Stay for the Kinetic After-Party with rock band, Scotch Wiggly, performing from 9:30 to midnight."

Gotta love Northern NorCal. All the myths are true.
