Talented mixed media artist Kelly Thompson is turning nerd haters into nerd lovers. It is no wonder her collection showing at the Gorker Gallery is entitled, â€œBookworms Never Go to Bed!â€
Her illustrations depict different guys and gals all with thick, black-rimmed glasses and are brimming with fine details--so much so that you can even see flyaway hairs!
