Artist, curator, and general badass, Tatiana Veneruso sits down with Peachy Keen in her new Athens, Georgia art space, The Trio Gallery.  We walk through the soon-to-be-opened space, and chat about the experiences that led her to this exciting venture. Along the way we discuss student loans, One Shot paints, the not-so-feminist practice of moving to Athens for a boy, and the cultural significance and deep philosophical meaning behind the Golden Girls.
