Sculptor Christy Langer sent AM an exclusive preview of a couple of her new pieces that will be featured in the upcoming “Meticulous Engagements” show coming soon to the Shooting Gallery. Showing with Kris Kuksi (featured), Langer’s resin, fiberglass and oil painted animals appear to be the perfect compliment to Kuksi’s minutia assemblages. Stay tuned for a preview from Kuksi as well as the show approaches. Check out the full preview after the jump.

Portland artist Mark Warren Jacques (interviewed) will be returning to San Francisco soon and has released a video in conjunction with his visit. Entitled “Mind Visit”, the short film is an exploratory journey into both the mind and studio of the young artist as he diligently prepares for his part in the upcoming group show “New Territory” debuting next weekend at White Walls. Equally haunting and enlightening, “Mind Visit” is less of a welcoming insight than it is a seemingly drug induced and slightly voyeuristic […]
Following the recent trend of turning award winning movies into collectible posters (such as last month’s Inglourious Basterds release) the Academy Award nominated film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, has recently received the print treatment by designer Zoltron. Though Zoltron has been in the poster/design world for many years doing album covers and flyers, he may be more recognizable to AM readers as the one who printed the half a million Shepard Fairey designed Obama “Hope” stickers, along with the thousands of Upper Playground x Obama […]
Jeremy Fish (featured) closed out the first leg of his “Road Less Traveled” tour (previewed) last weekend at Denver’s Andenken Gallery. Opening to a packed house, Jeremy held court at the Queen City of the Plains, providing residents with a new mural and dozen of prints and new originals. The concept of the tour, to be able to provide fans and galleries that are somewhat off the beaten path with small yet fresh shows, seems to be off to a great start. Expect the tour […]

This time around Ronald (McDonald, not English) sports a white/purple/green and clear colorway and is available through ARMTH’s Zozotown store, available now. More pictures after the jump.
Arriving in the nick of time from Austin, Jeremy Fish (featured) beat the current Colorado snowstorm and is, as we speak, preparing for the opening of his second stop on the “Road Less Traveled” tour. Luckily for AM readers, Andenken‘s owner and gallery director, Tom Horne, sent us some exclusive photos of Mr. Fish as he’s working around the clock to get the show up and ready for his Mile High friends. “The Road Less Traveled” opens tonight, March 20th in Denver. Check out some […]
Following Jeremy Fish’s inaugural stop on his “The Road Less Traveled” Tour at OK Mountain Gallery in Austin and subsequent print release (covered), the man behind Superfishal and Silly Pink Bunnies has landed in Denver for his upcoming show at Andenken Gallery. Featuring a healthy mix of around thirty to forty original paintings and prints, “The Road Less Traveled” continues on this Saturday, March 20th before heading out to Germany in May and the Pacific Northwest in July. Stay tuned for more! Discuss Jeremy Fish […]
Opening alongside Aaron Nagel’s Marks at the Shooting Gallery was Kevin Cyr and Jessica Hess‘ “Temporal Surfaces” at the adjoining White Walls gallery. Cleverly curated by Lainya Maganya, “Temporal Surfaces” brings together two documentarists of the bleak urban and industrial landscape. Jessica Hess’ calming oil-based renditions of derelict billboards and abandoned railway cars accurately captures the temporal and transitional movement of light across these surfaces while invigorating life and beauty into otherwise drab and dreary locales. Kevin Cyr’s (studio visit and interview) seemingly case study-like […]
Running till the end of the month at San Francisco’s Park Life store/gallery is “Bro Palace” a group showing consisting of five of the Bay Area’s more talented illustrators and artists. Skinner (covered), Jay Howell, Porous Walker, Deth P Sun and Ferris Plock have come together from every corner of Northern California, bringing their sardonic wit, whimsical musings, ironic observations, and sometimes a downright offensive style of humor and art together for a beautifully, culturally cohesive though jarringly disparate show of found media, drawings and […]
