Yes, the desire to make art runs strong with many, especially in this fertile and paint-stained town. But many don't get the chance, sometimes because they're absolutely terrible, sometimes because they have an unpopular message. Gallery5 throws two events for the underexposed your way this week. The first, "Repressed 2," is a collection of works by the politically minded, the socially conscious, the rebellious aesthetes who make the message pretty. Like "A Doomed Way of Life" by Bruce New, above. This show opens March 2, 7-11 p.m., with music by Caustic Castle and others. A mere two days later, March 4, the touring Big Art Show comes through to open a forum for local musicians and artists to show their stuff, macaroni and otherwise. Mossyrock and Toof perform at the show, starting at 6 p.m. $5. 644-0005. S
