PG and the Art of Collective Mythmaking VI

It’s that time again! The Ides of March were upon us when PG Cafe and Gallery opened their awesome annual group myth-themed show. Our work will hang until April 20 and there’s some awesome stuff there this year. I’ll try to do a posting of a few different pieces if I get the chance, but admittedly March is one of my more insane months so we’ll see. Possibly closer to show closing to remind people to get out there!

In the meantime, here’s the piece I have in the show. Some lucky person has already claimed the first 16×20 archival canvas of “The Return of Cortes Quetzalcoatl,” but I’ll try to have smaller prints in time for Spring YART. Continue reading

Robot Invasion New Harmony Art Gallery article

Robot Mermaid was featured in this article where I was initially credited as Heather Landrey AKA Sandpaperdais (in case you came here from a search). I’ll update on here when my name/handle get updated, but in any case I was very happy to be included with all these awesome artists in what has turned out to be a truly amazing art show. The show closes this Saturday, so head on down to New Harmony Art Gallery if you get the chance!

As the article explains, my Robot Mermaid was created from fractals. I love the idea of math creating artistic forms, and math seemed the obvious approach for robot art since robots rely so heavily upon math to be designed and created and then go on to perform functions. In this case the fractals form speakers that the mermaid uses to project her enticing song and lure sailors.

The canvas from this show has found a new home, but anyone wishing to have their own Robot Mermaid can email me at sandpaperdaisy@gmail.com and I’ll get you set up with your own canvas or matte paper archival print!

PG & The Art of Collective Mythmaking IV

I’m honored to be back for the fourth round of this amazing annual group show at PG Cafe and Gallery! The show runs for the rest of this week and then I think they’re taking it down this Thursday, April 14. So if you haven’t seen it yet, run on down to PG  at 1418 W. Franklin and see this amazing show!!

Here’s some (but not all) of the fantastic art in this show, with the last 2 pieces being my contributions. If you wanna see the rest, you’ll have to go!

Just for fun, here’s the show opening flyer and a couple of shots of the PG chalkboard the day I went and snapped these pictures.

Be sure to catch the PRINTED group show at PG if you haven’t already!

Check out this amazing show at PG Cafe and Gallery before it’s gone on Friday February 19th! A lot of pieces are still available for sale but since art is often sold INSANELY CHEAP around here, they won’t be for long. Below are just a couple of the zillion amazing pieces in this show to whet your appetite. As you can see, every traditional printmaking technique has been explored here…screen prints, woodcuts, linoleum block, intaglio, clay monoprint (my insane contribution), and a bunch of other cool stuff I didn’t even recognize…GO!

A Couple of New York Shows

Just sent off two canvases to the Ripe Art Gallery in Huntington, NY. It’s for their awesome annual Valentine’s Day Group Show, this year the theme is “I Like Andy.” I accordingly sent off a couple of Warhol-inspired Angel Rexes. They do not, by the way, look like my fun little image up top. They’re one-off canvases, so I won’t do any other prints quite exactly like them, in the same way that Warhol’s screenprints had little differences in them.

Next up, if all goes well, I’ll be sending a postcard-sized traditional art piece to the international group show, #twitterartexhibit! This year the show is in NYC, so that’s three of my pieces that’ll be floating around the NY Metropolitan area! I’m pretty excited.
