Contagious Next Saturday Night

Contagious will feature new artwork by Tara Costello, Jennifer Davis & Amy Rice

If you come here often you know that I’m a huge fan of Davis’ work – I only have a couple of her prints but I’m determined to own at least one of her paintings, at some point… I haven’t seen Amy’s work in person yet – but it looks sweet (reminds me of old vintage illustrations) and Tara is a well-known abstract painter – if you’re in Minneapolis you’ve certainly seen her work.

With these 3 popular / much-loved local art chicas, I expect that this show will be packed. Looking forward to heading down there Saturday night..

we don’t do clever & art crawl

we don’t do clever / first amendment
jennifer davis is having a show with jake keeler on saturday. jen’s work is just.. twisted. yet somehow manages to still comes across as sweet.. you really have to see it in person to get the full effect – but you can sort of get an idea here + jake’s work looks cool from what i have seen (online).. for a wordier, “art review-ish” take on the show – go here and read rod smith’s stuff.. otherwise, just take my word for it that the work is cool enough to take me way out of my way on a busy night

7-9pm @ first amendment
Special debut performance by The Book of Right On and deejays Wes Winship and Mike the 2600 King

st paul art crawl / the northern warehouse
i’m generally too lazy to huff it over to st paul very often but gina louise & other friends are showing at the art crawl today, too.. well worth the trip if i can get another one of gina’s pieces :) 12-8pm @ the northern warehouse building

NOTE: we’re heading over to annie’s b-day bash after these..

best bet for last-minute shopping

now i know where i’m doing all my last minute xmas shopping – the soo gallery is having a carzy cool “arts and crafts” sale this saturday..

now i know the phrase “arts and crafts” may freak some people out (it certainly gives me the creeps) but this will be cool – think more like robot love.. or patina (on mescaline) .. with stuff to funk-up your home (art, throw pillows, toys, etc) and stuff to funk-up your person (jewelry, bags, etc)..

the list of participating artists is impressive : Jennifer Davis (if you missed her last show at the soo you should definitely go to this thing) Joe Sinness, Bethany Kalk, Liseli Polivka, Amy Rice, Lindsey Borgerson, Brittany Foster, Glamoramapuss, Emily Johnson, Annika Kaplan, Margaret Nimocks, Sisbro, Collaboration Thursday with Swank Dollar, Drive by Bags, Zeichen Press & many more ..

this is also the last weekend that sean tubridy’s “toys on roids” will be up..
