I had two pieces in this show, Kelpie and Wendigo. Continue reading
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
The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is currently hosting a group show of female illustrators! I’m privileged to have my stuff hanging next to the art of several truly amazing women.
Here are a few highlights from the show but as always, if you want to see more…you’ll just have to go! Continue reading
I am incredibly proud to have “SEEK” in this show. As you can see from these previews, the art is top-notch. Continue reading
Show runs from April 1-May 6 with a reception on Thursday, April 20th at 5:30pm. Come see us there!
Here’s images from the online article and a full shot of the physical newspaper 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you set up with your own canvas or matte paper archival print!
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.
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.
Here’s more info on Ripe Art Gallery: http://ripeartgal.com/

It’s that time again! This year’s SPACE MADNESS will be at Angel Mounds again and will open August 15 at 7pm.
Here’s the FB Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/726137730826342/
I’ve made 3 brand-new sci-fi pieces for this show! They’re all vastly different approaches to the whole “forbidden planet” theme. The show doesn’t just have planets though, all kinds of awesome sci-fi themes are explored! Below are two mini-flyers I made for me and my buddy Scott, who also has art in the show.
I have two pieces in the show, “WISP” and “Moonlit Night,” both are the framed and matted archival original prints. Only $75 each!! As the name suggests these are the original archival printings of each piece, there won’t be another archival original of either.
Yeah, I’m completely floored, but the fact is that this year I will be a part of this amazing experience. This art/craft show is filled to the brim with some of the best artists and crafters in the area, and I’ll be there with them. I can’t overstate how happy I am.
Here’s the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/752170168174181/
The basics, this is a big art and jewelry/craft sale on December 13th, going on from 10am to 4pm at the Wired Coffee House, RAIN OR SHINE. There’s going to be an immense amount of talent here and I will be bringing my best game, including some new art.
This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up one-of-a-kind, thoughtful, and most of all FREAKIN’ AWESOME presents for pretty much anyone in your life. The prices are always nuts too (me and a lot of my buds here practically give our art away, it’s crazy) so this is a holiday shopping event not to be missed on any level.
From the YART facebook page:
We are thrilled to announce that the beautiful green space at the new 22 Jefferson Art Studios and Gallery, in the Haynie’s Corner Arts District, will host our Fall YART 2014 sale! As the name suggests, this lovely spot can be easily found at 22 Jefferson, in downtown Evansville. Plenty of street parking is available!
Saturday, October 25, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. All local and regional fine art, with nothing priced more than $50!
HECK YEAH!!! I can’t wait, can you? Here’s the Facebook Event Page too: https://www.facebook.com/events/361314300704443/
Would you know it, my phone died while I was setting up. No event photos for me! Fortunately for you all, I went and grabbed a lot of art for myself. So I can at least show you pics of what I bought. If I get permission, I’ll also feature some other pieces of art I admired that I know people took pictures of, so stay tuned for a possible update.
First off, the featured image above is a painting on poster-board by Ryan McCain, who somehow manages to be an amazing artist and a heck of a nice guy as well!! He has a huge body of work and he’s done mural work too…I’m a new huge fan. The second image of a creepy and fascinating guy is by Ryan too:
Below, I also snatched up a gorgeous little wire and bead tree on driftwood by Damon Murray. Next year this sculpture artist will have an even more amazing array of art, which will be hard considering how beautiful all of his trees and other small wire sculptures are. But he’s experimenting with MAGNETS now!! Our fellow artist Megan Black showed me an amazing little spider he made that actually moves and dances because of magnets. It was awesome…
Speaking of Megan Black! Check this out: this year she premiers her new loveable and intricate Voodoo Babiez styles!! Each one of these individual dolls is painstakingly and lovingly crafted with Meghan’s love rather than with bad juujuu, and I GOT ONE. Not only one, a PINK BUNNY ONE. …yeah my excitement pretty much knew no bounds when I took this little lady home…
Lastly, I grabbed an amazing Monster Pin-Up Calender by Christy Jochum!
I also admired everyone else’s stuff including all the amazing vintage paintings and drawings by Lisa Herzog.
It was a fantastic event and a great night all around, I can’t wait to see who will be there next year!
Yup, it’s time for the Arts Council of Doom‘s third annual counter-culture invasion of the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana‘s Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery and it promises to be awesome as usual. Come on down to the gallery on Friday, October 17 at 7pm for the opening!
Naturally, I’ll have a disturbing weird piece there.
Come on down to the Ahh Spa, 600 North Weinbach, tomorrow October 4rth from 6pm to 9pm to snap up some fantastic scary and morbid art, jewelry and other treats and goodies! At least 20% of all sales go to benefit PAAWS Animal Rescue, and some artists do more! The lovely piece above is by Jamie Gish-Bates of Silent Salvation Jewelry and Watches.
Here’s the Night Gallery event page where you can see awesome art and cute Voodoo Babiez plushies that people will be bringing, and more! I’ll be bringing a fistful of new morbid and creepy art prints, so be warned.
Check them out, don’t they look awesome?? This from Corvidae Collective’s facebook page. I’m also blown away that DIVE is honored to appear next to these awesome pieces. I just know that the overall show is going to be phenomenal. I can tell that the leftmost image is another one by Karen Short, but I’ll have to find out who did the middle one (which I also adore) so I can point you toward their page.
I did discover another awesome artist named Dolly Gode through this art show though. She’s freaking awesome!! I don’t know if she did the middle image or not, but I like her work a lot.
Coming from the amazing Corvidae Collective Gallery and Boutique in Nashville, TN is its latest show, Nomadic Views! Featuring “fantastical views from this world and Beyond,” it promises to be fantastic. I am very honored to have two pieces included in this show. Also, I’m sorry I couldn’t find a bigger image of “Stardust” by Karen Short for the feature image, I just used the one from the show description below. Looks freaking awesome though.
The exhibit they’re currently showing, LIT, featuring artwork inspired by banned and challenged classics, is amazing too. My favorite is the Catcher in the Rye piece but they’re all great.
I’ve done Night Gallery for the past two years now and I’m coming back a third time for this awesome and creepy horror-themed art show! Not only is it dripping with fantastic macabre art of all types, kinds and prices, as well as tasty Halloween Treats, a minimum of 20% of all art sales goes to benefit PAAWS Animal Rescue!!
Night Gallery will take place from 6pm-9pm on Saturday, October 4 at the Ahh Spa in Evansville. See you there!
The Facebook events page is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/332689243579497/ and the awesome cover art (pictured above) is by Christy Jochum, from her insanely awesome “Beauty and Brains” zombie pin-up series!
Come find us in the Artist Alley!! There’ll be lots of great people there, I’m excited.
