Openings: “Tiny Trifecta” @ Cotton Candy Machine

This past weekend, New York’s Cotton Candy Machine hosted their second annual “tiny” art showcase entitled Tiny Trifecta.

This Saturday, New York’s Cotton Candy Machine will be holding its second annual “tiny” art show. Entitled Tiny Trifecta, this year’s edition looks to take it up a notch as each artist creates three pieces of original artwork costing only $100 each. We stopped by the gallery to sneak a peek and noticed that this year, artists aren’t just submitting simple “tiny” sketches. Many took their time to create some significant gems for all their fans out there. Tara McPherson curates a loaded line up […]

Upcoming: Josh Keyes @ Roq La Rue

With his exhibition at the University of Arizona’s Joseph Gross Gallery already open to the public (we’ll bring you photos of the opening reception coming up on August 30th), Josh Keyes (interviewed) is already working on his next showing.

The showing at the University of Arizona will be the first solo for the Portland-based painter at an academic associated gallery and as such he will be displaying a selection of old and new work which could be instructive on how artistic style changes and develops over time. We haven’t had a chance to sit down with Josh for some questions and answers […]

These new beauties are presumably for the Joseph Gross Gallery at the University of Arizona when the Portland-based painter will next have a solo exhibition come May.

New Studio Blog from Josh Keyes

Josh Keyes (interviewed) fans now have one more thing to look forward to and obsess about – his new studio blog.
