Hey guys! Just a quick reminder about two shows coming up at Gallery Nucleus! First up is Press Paws, the video-game-themed charity exhibition to benefit “What’s Up Dog LA” animal shelter. This event is one day only, February 9th, 2pm-8pm! Shortly after, on February 16th, The Animal Kingdom opens and will be up for two weeks; it features some incredible illustrators including Victo Ngai, Corinne Reid, Sachin Teng, and many more.
The Legend of Zelda: Mammal’s Mask
Created for the Press Paws charity art show, opening at Gallery Nucleus on February 9th. All proceeds from the show go to “What’s Up Dog” non-profit dog rescue in LA. Also check out their Indiegogo campaign to help raise money for the event — they’ve met their goal so any further donations will go directly to the animal rescue!
Prints, cards, phone cases, t-shirts, totes, and more available through my shop (not connected to the charity) — the original will be for sale exclusively through the show at Gallery Nucleus.
Getting work ready for the annual MCAD Art Sale. If you haven’t heard of it & you live in the MPLS/St Paul area, you should definitely come by! Two glorious floors packed floor to ceiling with student & alumni work, on November 16th, 17th, & 18th.
I had a lot more trouble than I expected coming up with a piece for the show, because while I like bad words just as much as (if not more than) all other words, I couldn’t really think of a way to make them the focal point of a piece without feeling like it was too synthetically rebellious or just (and it’s sad that this bothers me) completely unmarketable. But I’d been rereading Salinger stories and had the idea to channel some of the better midcentury expletives and came up with this, partially because it gave me a reason to add birds. In the long run I’ll probably replace the lettering altogether and make these into pretty little thank-you cards or something, because I’m just not cool enough to pull the expletive thing off.
TL;DR- All the other artists did a better and more authentic job than me go to the opening
Thanks to everyone who came out to the opening of The Grove at OhNo!Doom! All of the work in the show is also available online, so please check out the shop! I think all of the originals I was showing have sold, but there are still framed and unframed prints available, including a couple brand new pieces I made just for the show. Also be sure to look through the awesome, awesome work by the other artists, Becky Dreistadt/Tiny Kitten Teeth and Kelly Denato! Finally, if you missed the opening but were hoping to be there, there’ll be a closing reception October 4th, 5-10pm. Thanks for all of your support!
Hey everyone! I wanted to let you all know about a really awesome event coming up that you should all come to if you’re in the Minneapolis/St Paul area! I curated a show called Fairytales & Florals at Light Grey Art Lab, a new gallery and community art center in Minneapolis. There are more than 70 pieces by 18 artists, ranging from illustrations and paintings to plush toys, embroidery, and more. All of the work is really really fantastic, especially in person, so you should be there if you can! The opening is this Friday, the 20th, from 7-10pm, and we’ll also have a craft table for you to make anything your heart desires, free food and a tea tasting station, and a photo booth! Even if you can’t make it to the gallery in person, we’ll have all of the work for sale online for the duration of the show :]
