Up Next in the Gallery: Famous When Dead

Quality Living at Affordable Price$ by Famous When Dead

Famous When Dead, creator of strange and intriguing artworks, was born in the industrial town of Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, England and still lives there today with his family. His artworks are heavily influenced by popular culture, past and present and he is constantly on the look out for fresh ideas. There are no obvious themes to his work although the reoccurring subjects of fragile celebrity and fallen idols are noticeable in recent works.

Join us the evening of Friday, December 11, 7-10pm for the opening of Quality Living at Affordable Price$, New Works by Famous When Dead. We'll have snacks and sodas plus music by DJ Sean Doe.

Works will be made available to purchase at the gallery starting at 11am on opening day or may be reserved via email starting at 2pm. Sign up for our gallery previews email list to get the preview link sent to you the morning of the exhibit opening. Thanks!

Note: Anyone wishing to purchase artwork from this exhibit to be given as a holiday gift will be provided with a full color certificate suitable for giving as a placeholder until the artwork can be delivered in January, thanks!

Exhibit continues through January 17, 2016.

Up Next in the Gallery: Joe Scarano

Hellions by Joe Scarano

Orange County, New York-based Joe Scarano spends his nights painting characters and environments that recall the odd early days of animation and the dingy despair of the 1930's. With their popsicle stick bucktoothed grins, hollow heads and dead eyes his characters often straddle the lines between funny, tragic, grotesque, and sad.

Perfect for the holidays!

Join us the evening of Friday, December 11, 7-10pm for the opening of Hellions, New Works by Joe Scarano. We'll have snacks and sodas plus music by DJ Sean Doe.

Works will be made available to purchase at the gallery starting at 11am on opening day or may be reserved via email starting at 2pm. Sign up for our gallery previews email list to get the preview link sent to you the morning of the exhibit opening. Thanks!
