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!

A couple of more previews of Nomadic Views art!

images from the upcoming October 4rth 2014 art opening at Corvidae Collective in Nashville

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.

Stardust by Karen Short for Nomadic Views at Corvidae collective, Nashville

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.

21st Annual Working Together Exhibition

Yesiree Bob (and everyone else besides Bob) I’m gonna have one of my pieces in Working Together 2014! I’ve been wanting to get into this show for over ten years now, so I’m even more thrilled than usual. This year, I finally got in with one of my Chordata pieces, the snake skeletons!

It’s funny, I was so proud of these babies when I finally finished them (THEY TOOK FOREVER) and then I virtually forgot about them after Patchwork Dragon, the solo show where they debuted. Thank goodness I thought of them when the call for entries came!!

The opening reception is Saturday July 12th from 6pm to 8pm at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science, feel free to come check it out! I saw some of the entries this year and there were some really cool things, I’m really interested and curious to see this year’s featured artists.

As usual, please forgive my horrible digital shots. There are many more fantastic pieces in this show than what I have pictured here, it was painful to create just a sampling! But the show is still on, and if you want to see all the stunning pieces you gotta get down to PG Gallery and Cafe! Show ends May 17, 2014.

Pupienus’s Glove and The Art of Collective Mythmaking 2 at PG Gallery

PG Gallery and Cafe has a new group show up! This is only some of the cool stuff in the show, many of the shots I took did not pan out or I couldn’t see the name clearly in order to credit the art. But here is a sampling of the awesome art of Collective Mythmaking II, including my completed collage “Kaguya Hime.” For the rest, well…you’ll just have to go! Show is up until April 18th.

WILKE, among the artists included here, has a new show Wormwood opening the evening of April 19th at the Tin Man Brewery. Many of the rest of us including myself, Stephanie Osborne and Christy Jochum will be at the Earth Day Art Crawl outdoor art sale earlier that day!
