Our absolutely epic ‘From The Streets Of Brooklyn’ show is now sadly over, but the love from the press continues. After being named a ‘Showstopper’ in the last issue of Juxtapoz, the show has now received a full page of opening night pictures in the ‘Pop Life’ section of the new issue (cover below) that is hitting news stands this week. Thank you again to all that have helped to spread the word and support this show, we couldn’t have been more stoked with how it all came together and was laid out for all to enjoy.
Don’t sleep – these won’t last for long, so be sure to get on out and check out our block and the surrounding area before nature cleans Ellis G.‘s delicate chalk etchings away. His chalk work captures the shadows (both from the sun and from streetlights) of everyday street objects and their surrounding environment. Anything that casts a shadow is fair game for Ellis: benches (see above), bikes, fences, lightposts, and even full city blocks (most of our block has been outlined)…
In addition to his chalk outlines of shadows at night, be sure to check out across the street from our gallery to see a whole array of his sunlight shadow outlines (see above)… just amazing. Very cool to try and get them to line up again… amazing to see how quickly the world really does turn when you have a reference point such as these.
Ellis G. will soon publish his first book ‘Adhesives’, the ultimate compendium of graffiti, graphic design and street art stickers with Miss Rosen Editions for Powerhouse Books. Watch for it!
Again, thank you to all that came through our gallery this weekend to view ‘From the Streets of Brooklyn’. Just an amazing turnout the whole night long and so many props – the crew at Ad Hoc Art put together one epic show and it will be on view through Feb. 6th – be sure to come on through before it comes down.
In addition to the opening night shots already posted by Daily DuJour, we’ve also posted a good 150+ shots from the opening reception here.
The good folks over at Arrested Motion have now posted their coverage of the opening here. Also at the same link you can view the details to their Stikman Contest. AM and Sour Harvest have teamed up to give AM’s readers a chance to win some original pieces from Stikman. The three giveaways up for grabs: a stenciled playing card, a laser cut NYC Metro card, and a laser cut playing card can be viewed at the above link. To enter, leave a comment on AM’s post about the opening reception (link above). Three lucky winners will be chosen at random on Tuesday, 1/13 @ 12pm PST. Good luck everyone!
As if that wasn’t enough… you will also be able to view original works from the likes of Swoon, Bast, Gaia, Imminent Disaster, Chris Stain, GRL, Elbow-Toe, Skewville, Michael De Feo and many, many more… PLUS we are also offering an incentive to be one of the 1st 100 people through the door.
Those lucky few who arrive early this Friday will receive a poster from the show, a copy of the latest issue of Juxtapoz + a 2009 wall calendar from Thinkspace featuring all the artists we’ll be showing in 2009.
ALSO – free original works from Stikman will be placed about the outside of our gallery for patrons to find and give a new home to. So keep your eyes peeled for those – they are killer lil’ pieces!!!
Bring your clothing – they will print ’em up. Propah.
Don’t miss this one!!!
