Above are the details for the print from Amy Sol that we’ll be releasing on the opening night of “Karmic Magic”. Additonal details will be announced soon concerning the sale of the print. As mentioned previously, we will not be doing any kind of pre-sale on the print prior to the opening night reception. We may open a bit early, prior to opening, for sales of the print. Nothng is confirmed yet, and we’ll announce all the week of the show. If you are not on our mailing list, please be sure to sign up so you receive the updates leading into the opening.
Please do not inquire before then, as nothing has been decided upon just yet, and all the details confirmed thus far are posted here. If the prints make it past the opening, we’ll release them that weekend on our site or reach out to those that have inquired from out of state on the print. It really all depends on how many are left after the opening, so we can’t confirm anything on that front until the morning after the opening. Please know there will be a limit of only one print per patron at the opening reception on Fri, June 13th.
We’ve well over 150 collectors on her preview list for the original works in the show, possibly many more as it’s been a bit since we last updated the spread sheet. We’re expecting 13 original works, so please know it’s going to be extremely difficult to get past the early part of our waiting list that has been growing for well over a year now. I wish we could help everyone out, but sadly that just isn’t possible in a situation like this.
To help hold you all over, Amy’s recently posted some great progress shots on her blog of a couple works from “Karmic Magic”. Check out more here: http://www.amysol.com/blog/
If you didn’t get the chance to check out Amy’s presentation in Australia at the big Semi-Permanent Festival, snippets have been posted here for all to enjoy: http://www.bloglog.ro/semipermanent-f_1/amy-sol-@-semi-permanent-2008-sydney-vmix-compilation-vi_IhVMnpJZm80
Also as part of the Semi-Permanent 2008 Design Conference in Perth, Australia, artists Amy Sol and Ben Frost engaged in a cut and paste battle using low-tech masking tape, student helpers and a crazy assortment of found objects. Check that out here: http://www.bloglog.ro/semipermanent-f_1/amy-sol-ben-frost-at-central-tafe-vi__O4qty_xRIM
We’ll be posting some more sneak peaks ourselves of full works as we get closer to the show. Stay tuned…

Brazilian artist Thais Beltrame rocks Carmichael!

Brazilian artist Thais Beltrame is in town and she’s rocking the house over at Carmichael. She’s done a huge mural in the back gallery and has a wall of over a dozen of her whimsical and heart felt mixed media drawings on paper. The one above is one of my favorites from the show and below is one of our purchases from the show. Seth’s wife is out of town due to family matters, so I stopped by to help a brother out on my home this eve and had the honor to help hang her works and got to chat a bit with her. She deserves all the attention she’s getting right now, really sweet person. Don’t kick yourself a year from now, get down to Carmichael tomorrow… it’s right up the road from SURU… so hit both those and then head on over to Culver to see Bozic’s mind bender at Kinsey/DesForges (WOW). What a night for art!!!

Great YouTube video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYJgb8uot1g

The heat is really building up leading into EKUNDAYO’s mini-solo at SURU this Sat on Melrose. Pieces are already being snapped up by some pretty major players in the art/entertainment world, so don’t sleep on this show.

“If you’re already a fan of his work, you need to check the show out. If you’re not familiar with him, then this is a great starting point.” – VinylPulse.com

Hope to see some of you out at the show this Saturday. Dayo rocked a huge mural on the front of the store too that has to be seen. PLUS there’s a killer limited tee available at the opening too (see below). Don’t miss this one.
