MA – Chroma Art Show

000000000000-chroma-artshow

Andrew Houle, John Cardinal, and Michael Crockett open an art show at the Montserrat Gallery on Saturday, July 30, 2016 at 5:30 PM

Press Release:

From the pages of “Chroma,” an art annual created by three Montserrat alum, a commitment was formed to showcase emerging and established artists in a vibrant and varied publication. With each volume filling a need to define the creative community in New England and giving a voice to the artists residing here.

While the co-founders (Andrew Houle ’00, John Cardinal ’99, and Michael Crockett ’97) shared overlapping years attending Montserrat, a passion for illustration, comic book culture and painting formed a bond that would later bring them to form Tryptic Press and later publish “Chroma” vol. 1.

Now together releasing “Chroma” vol. 3 & vol. 4 a thriving and supportive collective of artists has formed. Creating an uncommon home within the “Chroma Family”, bridging abstract painters, fashion photography, comic book illustrators, community based art programs, printmakers, sound-makers and even robot-makers.

With this 50 person group exhibition all points come together in some cases meeting for the very first time in person and on the walls, combining all four current volumes of artists. Creating new collaborations, new relationships, new directions for what has always been right in our own backyard; a New England Art Awakening.

Toonseum Looking for Star Trek Original Art

000000000000-star-trek-50

Press Release:

The Toonseum, Pittsburgh’s Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, is currently in the process of organizing an exhibit of Star Trek original comic art. Art collectors have been instrumental in the success of prior exhibits at the ToonSeum, including last year’s Avengers: 50 Years of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the current Captain America: 75 Years of the Sentinel of Liberty exhibits, and the hope is that this will again prove true with Star Trek.

The Toonseum is thus reaching out to any collectors who might be willing and kind of enough to loan the Pittsburgh-based museum some amazing Star Trek pages to be placed on display to the public. The exhibit will run from October 28, 2016, until January 15, 2017.

If you think that you would like to loan some Star Trek art and/or have questions about the process, you can e-mail Board Member, Treasurer and Exhibit Curator Anthony Letizia (anthonyletizia@geekpittsburgh.com). Anthony would be happy to answer any questions you might have about transport, insurance, museum security and can provide references from collectors who have loaned the Toonseum art for previous exhibits. You can also check out the museum at the website.

Thank you for your consideration.

OR – I Can’t Guess Release Party

000000000000-I Cant Guess

Daria Tessler and Dylan Jones appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday July 7, 2016 from 6-9pm for the I Can’t Guess art show and release party!

Press Release:

In addition to their recently published books, Daria Tessler & Dylan Jones are making a collaborative art zine out of a vast assortment of bits and pieces.

Dylan also will have a new zine called I Can’t Guess made for the show, in addition to his new book The Longer You Stare the Fatter I’m Guilty, published last month by Gridlords. Dylan Jones has led a shoe mouth face floppy dagger dinger across an array of pages with his dextrous limbs’ pinwheel pineal dialogue. His new book will no doubt leave a zipper-length void in midmouth just as you grew wanting.

Daria Tessler’s most recent book, Three Magical Recipes from the Book of Secrets of Albertus Magnus, was published by Perfectly Acceptable Press. Dig out your parents’ glassen vessel and catch thyself a rearmouse – Daria Tessler illuminates three recipes from Alchemist-in-Chief Albertus Magnus’s Book of Secrets… One spell-binding four-color Risograph booklet.

Dylan Jones is an artist originally hailing from New Hampshire. Jones probably draws for more hours, makes more art and animates more objects than anyone alive or dead. It’s hard to imagine Jones sleeping ever, and his work makes one believe that he likely only loosely does something resembling sleeping, with eyes agape at all times. A meditative existence, so to speak. His work is methodical, pulling at all of the items in view, all of our mundane surroundings, and showing us how people can inhabit these the way Jones will inhabit your psyche. Jones’s work is the field of fantasies for persons who have seen too much, and it is the nightmares of the blissfully ignorant.

Born in Finland, Daria Tessler has been popping out of a jack-in-the-box at the cranking of dawn’s sunburned hand to the music of unknown worlds. A master silkscreener and master artist, Tessler has pulled as many visions she has screens. Her expert use of color will make you believe you are seeing hues that your eyes couldn’t previously register. Her linework and patterning is the most pleasant waft of wispy air, filled with pollen and pines, brushing over you. Each inhabitant of Tessler’s work wears on them a blissful quality of anxiety, a state of mind. You are doing yourself the greatest favor by stepping out of your body and into her body of work. Her book Music of Changes will be out soon from Latvian publisher kus! as part of their mini kus! line.
