Superstition by Chris Arnold

Superstition
New Works by Chris Arnold
In the Rotofugi Main Gallery
September 16-October 9, 2016

We're super excited to be presenting a new series of works by Chicago-based artist Chris Arnold. Here's what Chris has to say about the exhibit:

Superstition is a collection of ink-based illustrations that reflect a curiosity for the supernatural, astrological and prophetic. Specifically I wanted to learn more about the signs and symbols associated with fortune telling and reading the future. Through this investigation I seek to visually reveal some of the secrets of the Zodiac, Tarot and Religion through a playful series of new artworks.

Join us for the opening reception on the evening of Friday, September 16, 7-10pm and you'll have a chance to chat with Chris who will be in attendance, plus we'll have snacks and beverages, not to mention awesome music courtesy of DJ Sean Doe.

In addition to our usual opening reception snacks, etc. we'll also have FREE Tarot Readings by Psychic Alex during the opening, 7-9pm!

New Friends by Mary Ruth Butterworth

New Friends!
New Works by Mary Ruth Butterworth
In the Rotofugi Side Gallery
September 16-October 9, 2016

It's not often that we get to exhibit artwork from someone we know so well, but in this case not only is Mary an awesome artist, but she's also a staff member here at Rotofugi, curating our handmade goods section in the store and teaching our Munny painting classes among other things.

Mary's works convey imaginary worlds full of color, fun creatures and interesting characters. Bright and poppy are the words that come to mind...we're certain that collectors will find something cheerful to brighten up any decor in Mary's new exhibit, which will also include a resin figure release.

Join us for the opening reception on the evening of Friday, September 16, 7-10pm and you'll have a chance to chat with Mary who will be in attendance, plus we'll have snacks and beverages, not to mention awesome music courtesy of DJ Sean Doe.

Exhibit continues through October 9, 2016.

Cold Ways Lottery Followup

If you had in entry in the lottery to purchase items from the coarse cold ways exhibition check your emails now....we've just finished sending out notifications to everyone who was chosen at random.
 
I'm sorry, we will not be emailing everyone who entered, only those who were chosen.
 
If anyone is interested in how we do lottery drawings….every entry is assigned a number based on when you completed your entry form, and we use random.org to generate a random number sequence equal to the number of entries - selecting the first X number of entries based upon the amount of a given item that is available to sell. 
 
For example, we had 225 entries that expressed an interest in purchasing the cold ways collection…and we had 17 sets available to sell. Each entry was assigned a number between 1 and 225, and then using the Sequence Generator at random.org we generated a random order of those numbers, and the first 17 entrants were chosen.
 
Thank you and I sincerely hope luck was on your side!
 
Best,
Kirby

Cancan - Ignited Release

coarse cancan ignited

Rest easy, cancan – ignited is here to protect you in the night. 

Standing almost 10’’ tall, cancan – ignited comes in tones of tropical pink and glow-in-the-dark ivy. He will look out for you while you sleep, as his watchful eyes stay open and his talons remain clenched, ready to pounce at anything that gets in his way.

cancan – ignited will fly safely to your door in a color-printed gift box and embedded in black sponge. If those long nights make him nostalgic for home, take him to the nearest garden and let him imagine he hears the voices of other cancans.

cancan - ignited will be available to order at both rotofugi.com and coarsehkg.com on August 22, 2016 at 10:59 am CDT for $149 (it is eligible for free shipping within the US if ordered from rotofugi.com).

If you are located outside the United States, it may be best for you to order from coarse directly as pieces ordered directly from coarse will ship from Hong Kong and include free global shipping.

Please Note:

We have some stock of the cancan - ignited on hand in Chicago that was shipped in for the opening of coarse’s cold ways exhibit in our gallery, and we will be selling additional pieces as a pre-order, so you will find two items for this release on our online store. If the “in stock” item is showing as sold out and you order as a pre-order, we anticipate receiving the additional stock in mid- to late- September, if not sooner.  See the listings on our website here.

Thanks and let us know if you have any questions!
