MuseHub Site Banner

Okay…I admit it. I am super proud of this one. This is for the MuseHub.biz website I just recently did an interview with. It’s an awesome new directory service for freelance writers and artists and it’s growing fast. (And no, Lauren didn’t ask me to write that, I just dig her site.)

Anyway, check ’em out if you haven’t already. You can do so by clicking the image below. As for me, I’ve gotta get ready for YART this Saturday! I’ll be posting about that soon.

PREMORSE solo show at PG

I have a solo art show of 39 pieces ranging from $20-$90 up at PG Cafe & Gallery, 1418 W. Franklin Street, Evansville IN. Show runs until October 12.

Here’s some pieces for sale at PREMORSE:

Sorry for the photo quality, they’re just phone snapshots. I was told by the people who attended the opening that the printed and framed art was in fact more bright/brilliant than the art as it appears online, so make of that what you will.

TWIN SOLO SHOWS: STURM UND DRANG

“Twin solo shows” probably sounds a little weird, but basically I’ve got exhibitions running concurrently at The Dapper Pig and Blick Art Materials, both in Evansville, Indiana. They both run through June!

Each show is all 16×20 canvases, all $85 each which is WAY less than my canvases typically go for. So feel free to go take advantage of the sale! I think it’s something like 20 works in all, possibly more. (I hung the shows in a bit of a flurry.)

FROM THE STURM ARTIST STATEMENT: You’re seeing half of a double show I’m doing here & at Blick Arts for the month of June. The shows are “Sturm und Drang” (Storm and Stress) and this is the STURM part! I’ve had a rough year as a mom and a daughter, but I’m still hanging in there with the ones I love. This show is our victory.

STURM (STORM), hosted at The Dapper Pig, includes The Pretty Sun and Lunar Rainfall, two works centered around the idea of natural storms and destruction (world-ending in the case of The Pretty Sun).

Blick Art Materials hosts DRANG (STRESS), the more deeply personal half, and includes a portrait of my youngest son, who’s bravely facing some challenges, and 100 Keys, a scene from the recurring nightmare of a close friend of mine.

Make100 Kickstarter Art Print Campaign

robot mermaid dark queen kickstarter archival paint print sale cyborg fractal surreal women legend fantasy

Hey guys! I am very thrilled to announce that I’m running a (currently funded) kickstarter campaign for the purpose of selling painted archival matte prints of Robot Mermaid and The Queen of Air and Darkness, a new black and white fractal work depicting Queen Morgause of Arthurian legend.

Here’s the kickstarter link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sandpaperdaisy/make-100-painted-art-prints-robot-mermaid-dark-que

As for this special Painted edition, this means I will be doing a limited run of archival matte 8×10 prints, and that this run will feature artist brushstokes in gold paint pen for Robot Mermaid, and silver paint pen for The Queen of Air and Darkness.

Below are individual shots of the two prints being offered. If you’d like a print or just want to make a small donation, come check out the page!

I’m also planning to do a kickstarter-themed article after the campaign’s over, to share what I learned!

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!
