A show with art centered around Kristen Stewart is opening this Saturday. Yes, really. That Kristen Stewart. The one from the "Twilight" movies, notorious for showing about 1.5 emotions throughout the series.

It's poking fun at her, and will surely be attended ironically by many. However, there are actually legitimate, talented artists contributing to this show, including a personal favorite, comic book artist Phil Noto.

It also features several L.A. comedians/funny people, including Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program), Eric Appel (Funny or Die) and Peter Atencio (Key and Peele).

An example of the art being displayed; this piece is from artist Kevin Wada:

While I may be hating on Kristen Stewart a little, I have to admit that she was kind of awesome in "Adventureland," and this art show will probably be kind of great.

It'll be at the Meltdown Gallery inside Meltdown Comics and runs through April 20 after premiering Saturday. The opening reception is Saturday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., and the website notes it will feature "Kristen-themed cocktails and other delights."
