What was your first memory of art?
I would have to say the cover art from my Dad’s vinyl album collection was probably my first exposure to art. He had some pretty epic covers from Judas Priest, Def Leppard, Molly Hatchet, AC/DC etc. I remember trying to draw almost all of them.
Thinkspace family member, Sandra Chevrier who will be showing new works in our upcoming show with MOAH in October, was recently featured on CBC Art. The piece includes a great little video by filmmaker Pablo Aravena, that follows Chevrier as she works on a mural in Montreal for MURAL Festival.
You can view the full piece over on the CBC Art website and view Chevrier’s body of work presented through Thinkspace here.
The opening reception of Yosuke Ueno “But Beautiful” and Alex Garant’s “Voyage of the Insomniac” in the Thinkspace main room was a beautiful event. Both artists had prints available that were picked up by dedicated fans. In the project room, we were proud to present “Timewarp” which display the animated clocks of artists TikToy that are reminiscent of the 1989 classic Little Monsters.
Thank you to all that came out to support these incredible shows from all three artists. Congratulations to Yosuke Ueno, Alex Garant & TikToy on beautiful new bodies of work!
Art podcast Harsh Truth which dives into dealing with the business of art recently interviewed our current exhibiting artists Alex Garant. The interview not only discusses her life and creative process but also Garant’s art savvy business tips.
Artist Kevin Peterson has announced he is auctioning off a brand new original, “Don’t Look” on eBay with 100% of the proceeds being donated. Half of the proceeds will be going to the ACLU and the other half going to Beto O’Rourke, a Congressman from El Paso running to represent every Texan in the U.S. Senate.
We love when artwork can go to a good cause, so kudos to Peterson for making an impact with his talent!
The auction is now live on eBay and will end August 7th.
