Ace Art Inc., 2nd Floor, 290 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

"Call Girls, Car Boys questions the common image of the prostitute and the social values that have created this image; more generally the exhibition questions the function of imagery of any sort, both in popular culture and in art. The exhibition consists of ten works running along two walls toward gallery windows which the artist has painted opaque blue with shining gold frames. The works, which have the freshness and immediacy of Pop Art cartoons, form a loose narrative centring on Mabel, an androgynous and unconventional prostitute." - Alison Gillmor, Border Crossings

"Call Girls, Car Boys examines traditional and alternative viewpoints of prostitution and questions the recent cop crackdown on street hookers. Baerwaldt sees his exhibition as a protest of both the new laws and the old views of prostitution. He wants viewers to question the whole process of prostitution and where it occurs." - Shane Minkin, Winnipeg Sun
