50/50 Pilsen Art Show

Posted in Art, Display with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 12, 2010 by scratchyb

The past two weekends I’ve been participating in the 50/50 Pilsen show.   Last weekend we had a craft fair, where I sold one of the boxes I had promised to provide a picture of–without having taken a picture of it.  So, for the rest of my life, I’ll have to just tell the story of the Red Riding Hood box I woodburned, with each side telling a little bit more of the story, including a wolf trap at the end.

I still do have the octopus box, just no picture yet. Waiting on the best possible light.

But, here are some pictures of the art I’ve got hanging in the art show, which we started Friday night, coinciding with “Second Fridays” in the Pilsen neighborhood, when galleries open their doors to the public.

This one here’s the newest piece, just finished last Friday the morning before the show, called “Egghead”.

This one’s called “Birdcage.”

Here’s the rest of the pieces I hung.  I had a lot of space to work with, so rather than bring in all wood-pieces, I set up sort of a chronology of work I’d done the past five years, earliest to latest.  Before I was into wood-burning I was all about pen and ink on paper.

“It Was An Accident” – Odjit Cartoon #1

The Odjits are creatures that live in the tundra.  Part penguin, part monkey, all monster, they can’t seem to do anything that doesn’t end badly.

It was an accident.

It was an accident.

Happy Halloween, fellow creeps!!!
