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 store is a godsend to anyone who missed a particular shirt or print they wanted in past boxes, and has a lot of new and great art that hasn’t been in a box yet! I’m personally lusting after about half the store as we speak.
I’ve also added my Threaded Canvas Artist Page to my Social Media links below, and the store to my Purchase Art Online links.
This is a sketch warmup I did that I decided to try as a 4×6 print for Earth Day. I might make it a background or element for something else later, or ink or paint on it, haven’t decided yet. For the art crawl though I’ll just have the prints as they are.
A lot of people have resonated with this cute digital painting of two children navigating the sea of outer space on their home-made rocket, powered by a star. I’m even proud to say it took 1rst Place at Digitized back in 2011! It’s knocked around town in several places and forms (more on that next post) and finally come to settle on Society6 and Redbubble. But there’s more to the children’s story:
This piece actually has a place in my personal mythology. The two children are the same kids from Atomic Jazz!
These two children are my son (right now still in pre-school, I aged him for these pictures) and the little sister I thought he might end up having one day. This little sister is also one of the two possible children filling out the mysterious raincoat in The Seashore:
I made these three pieces when I had my son and was aware I was going to have a younger child to accompany him through life, but didn’t know if it would be a boy or a girl. The little girl would have been called “Violet,” and so that is her name in these pictures. I did eventually have my second child, a merry little boy! And so “The Seashore,” which I deliberately kept ambiguous, turned out to be the first picture of him in my series of fantasy children.
Possibly my most successful photo-manipulation and also one of the simplest concepts I’ve done: a fantasy forest that is unending, no sky but only graceful trees above and below. As with everything else I posted this week, this will be at both Art in the Wild Saturday and the Earth Day Art Crawl on the 19th.
This guy is one of everyone’s all-time favorites, and it’s easy to see why. You just gotta love Rex!!
You may recognize Rex from my block print series post here. These babies will be with me at Wesselman’s Nature Center for Art in the Wild on Saturday April 5, and again on Saturday April 19 at the Earth Day Art Crawl on Franklin Street!
