To celebrate Brandi Milne’s upcoming solo show ‘Run Rabbit, Run’, Thinkspace Gallery is offering an exclusive surprise just for Hi-Fructose subscribers this April.

100 signed and numbered prints of Brandi Milne’s new piece “And The Choir Sings Quiet” (shown above) will be sent to 100 randomly selected active or new Hi-Fructose subscribers. These special prints won’t be for sale through ordinary means.

Print Details:
“And The Choir Sings Quiet”
Giclee print on Hahnemuhle Museum Etching Paper
Hand-signed and numbered by the artist
Edition of 100 + 10 Artist Proofs

The artist proofs will be part of ‘Brandi Milne’s Easter Egg Hunt’ that will take place the evening of the opening reception at Thinkspace for ‘Run Rabbit, Run’ – Fri, April 10th 7-11PM

‘Brandi Milne’s Easter Egg Hunt’ details:
9 out of the 10 artist proofs will be part of a special Easter egg hunt. A large number of Easter eggs will be hidden about the gallery (both inside and out) for patrons to hunt for and discover. Each egg will contain a special ticket, good for one of many prizes to be redeemed that evening, including the grand prize, a framed one-of-a-kind original drawing from Brandi herself (shown below). Other prizes will include copies of Brandi’s latest book with Baby Tattoo “So Good For Little Bunnies”, copies of her new Gelaskins, and much more.

One of the 10 artists proofs will also be hand-touched by Brandi and on view as part of the ‘Run Rabbit, Run’ exhibit and will be available for purchase come the opening reception, but this is the only print out of the entire editon of 110 copies that will be available for purchase in any fashion.

Coming up in April @ Thinkspace…

Run Rabbit, Run is the first solo exhibition at our gallery from Los Angeles-based artist Brandi Milne. Run Rabbit, Run will feature a new fantastical world of whimsy painted with acrylic on wood panels and a collection of hand-painted antique books that will make up a very special installation.
Born and raised in Anaheim, California, Brandi Milne always had a love for creativity. Growing up, she was happily influenced by the oddities of the 1970’s and 80’s, vintage Halloween decorations, classic cartoons and an abundance of nostalgic child playthings. A self taught artist and illustrator, Milne’s work represents a melding of many very different genres while embracing beauty and aesthetic over message or propaganda. Milne has shown at numerous galleries throughout California including Corey Helford Gallery, CoproNason, Gallery 1988 LA and SF, and La Luz de Jesus.

Brandi also recently wrote and illustrated her first book, “So Good For Little Bunnies”, which was published by Baby Tattoo Books. Plans are already underway for her next book project as well.

FYI: There will also be a special ‘Easter Egg Hunt’ presented by Thinkspace and Brandi Milne taking place during the opening reception. Details will follow on this soon, but there will be several unique prizes awarded throughout the evening to patrons lucky enough to find one of the special eggs that will be hidden inside the gallery and out during the opening reception.

Sneak Peek of Run Rabbit, Run:

Cherri Wood is a young illustrator that is based out of Minnesota. Her watercolor and ink studies explore various areas of the human psyche such as alienation, childhood idiosyncrasies, and general psychosis. Each drawing contains quotes and dialog culled from a plethora of classic plays and short stories helping to narrate each work in its own special way. She is deeply influenced by independent films, graphic novels, comic art, and photography.

In the new series of works for trouble, clearly a variety of methods and mediums have been used in the creative process such as staining patterns created with tea, floral material, caramel soda, and various juice mixes along with acrylic paint and india ink.

Wood has shown with Andenken Gallery, Carmichael Gallery, Gallery 1988, Project: Gallery, O Contemporary/Opus Underground, and also took part in this past year’s GenArt Vanguard Fair that took place during Art Basel in Miami, FL.

We’re honored to be hosting her debut Los Angeles solo show and look forward to all getting a chance to see a large body of work from this emerging artist.

Sneak Peek at trouble, clearly:

Alex Garcia returns to Thinkspace after having his debut solo show with us back in September of 2007. He’s been busy as a tattoo artist out in Studio City at Dolorosa Tattoo, and is now setting his sites on getting back in the art game. We’ll be getting add’l new works in from Garcia throughout the year as well. We’re really looking forward to having him back with us this April on our ‘Fresh Faces’ wall in our project room.
