We're Back!

Our retail location in Chicago is now open to the public (as of Friday, June 12)...it’s been a long, strange few months since we last had the pleasure of seeing our friends at the store and we’re excited (and honestly a little nervous) to be back!

For now we will be operating on a slightly revised schedule, 10am-6pm, seven days a week.

Per City of Chicago regulation, you must wear a face covering to enter the store. If you do not have one, we have disposable masks available for you along with hand sanitizer and, if you’d like, gloves. Contactless payment via Paypal is also available.

Last but not least, we will continue to offer curbside pickups. Just place your order at http://rotofugi.com and choose Pickup from the shipping options. When you’re outside just give us a call at tel:773-868-3308 and we’ll bring your purchase to you!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us through this unprecedented time!

June Exhibit: Netherland

Playlist
New Works by David "Netherland" van Alphen
June 13-July 12, 2020

Join us through July 12 for all new works from Chicago-based artist David "Netherland" van Alphen, best known for his retro collage pieces and a beautiful 70s influenced color palette. We’ve had several exhibits of David’s work over the years (and he was also our Gallery Director for a good while) but we never get tired of his tight compositions and truly affordable works.


While we will be open for viewing on Saturday the 13th, 10am-6pm, we will not be holding an opening reception so make sure to sign up for our gallery previews email list at http://previews.rotofugi.com for first notice when works are available to purchase.

May Exhibit: Egoproof

 

Hope and Love in Times of Darkness.
New Works by Egoproof
May 16-June 7, 2020

Online Exhibit Launch
Saturday, May 16, 10am Central Time
gallery.rotofugi.com

Late last year I started noticing some interesting images show up in my social media feeds. The striking images showed what looked like advertising posters and wheat-pasted signs, usually with a positive message, featuring simple white on red or red on white text.

It turned out to be a new project by some old friends of Rotofugi. Rather than spoil their secret fun, let's just say that they are currently based in Spain and are known to move around quite a bit.

This month we're featuring a new exhibit of prints by these old friends and their new project, Egoproof. In a world that feels increasingly divided and chaotic, Egoproof is spreading a message of love, hope and positivity — and we all need those things today more than ever.

A portion of the exhibit will benefit Hope For The Day®, a Chicago-based non-profit empowering the conversation on proactive suicide prevention and mental health education. Through action, education, and outreach they aim to lead the global conversation on proactive prevention in order to create a cultural shift on how mental health is treated in our communities. May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we're excited to be partnering with HFTD to amplify their important message, even a little bit.

Join us at http://gallery.rotofugi.com on Saturday, May 16 at 10am Central Time to view and order prints.

Note: Our gallery in Chicago is closed to the public through May 31, 2020 by order of the governor of Illinois, and currently plans are for this exhibit to remain online only, though we've been known to change our minds! Stay safe.

April Exhibit: Eli Libson

Creature Lab

Creature Lab
New Works by Eli Libson
April 18-May 10, 2020

Online Exhibit Launch
Saturday, April 18, 10am Central Time

As the need to be closed to the public continues we find ourselves doing things just a little differently. This coming Saturday, April 18th, we'll be launching a new exhibit...but entirely online (at least for now, more on that below).

For the last few years we've been selling some wonderful prints at our Chicago location by Minnesota-based artist Eli Libson. Drawn from his "Mysterious Creatures Field Guide," these prints are a colorful explosion of fantasy beasts rendered in a careful scientific illustration style. Eli was part of a small group exhibit of ours last summer with some wonderful pop culture paintings, but we've been wanting to visit his creature work more fully.

Fast forward to this month and we're quickly approaching a full exhibit of works from this series including several new larger paintings. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 precautions, we won't be having a traditional exhibit, but the show goes on, virtually!

Join us at http://gallery.rotofugi.com on Saturday, April 18 at 10am Central Time to view the new works!

Sign up at http://previews.rotofugi.com for a reminder email.

Note: Our gallery in Chicago is closed to the public through April 30, 2020 by order of the governor of Illinois. While we expect that to be extended we are currently planning to hang this exhibit for in-person viewing if we are able to re-open on May 1. As such, works from this exhibit will be available for shipping either after the date the exhibit ends (May 10) or perhaps a little sooner if the shutdown is extended and we know for certain that we can't hang the exhibit for public viewing.
