I’m scheduled be on News44 this Friday, 6am with my #nature #art to promote Saturday’s #ArtintheWild show at Wesselman Nature Society. Hooray! Just a local news channel naturally, but I’m still pretty thrilled to have an opportunity to show off my art. I’ve made some new pieces recently that I can’t wait to show.
ART IN THE WILD THIS SATURDAY 12-4pm:https://www.facebook.com/events/1655411888036570/
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.
I hope you’ll excuse my horrible camera photos. These are a few of the pieces from Gary’s new solo show: “Too Much/Not too Much” at PG Gallery and Cafe. The show runs until March 15 so get on down there if you’re in the Evansville area! I’m not exaggerating when I call it an “amazing” show, but see for yourself…the following are a few pics Gary graciously allowed me to share from the show.
Gary runs MiLKSOP STUDiO and is pretty much phenomenal! I don’t know if you can tell much from my photos, but he uses various collage elements in his work like music sheets, labels and graphs, and I believe he achieves his impressive linework with ballpoint pen among other things. His bold lines and bright solid colors remind me of graffiti. At the same time, he treats his subjects with a great deal of sympathy in a way I honestly find beautiful and touching. (Hopefully that won’t piss him off.)
I’ll be featuring more great local artists and shows as I go to them. I had intended to do so before because there’s no dearth of talent in my modest little city, but I haven’t had the occasion until recently. As you’ll see, I’m incredibly fortunate to work with so many amazing people.
