I’m not sure how many of you (amazing readers) are in LA. Did anyone get to the Suggestivism Chronology opening at Copro Gallery?

A few previews…

Naoto Hattori: Nothing But Perception

Posted in art, exhibits with tags , on April 13, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Naoto Hattori has a new show at the Dorothy Circus Gallery.

As I struggle to think of fitting descriptions for his work, the word “cyborganic” comes to mind. It’s not a real word. I made it up. But I’m sticking with it.

Walter Potter

Posted in anthropomorphic, exhibits, nature, oddities, taxidermy on August 26, 2013 by bettiemuldoon

This is an automated post during my hospital time. I can still see your comments on my phone, but cannot reply. Thanks for your continuing presence here!

Many of us are no doubt aware of the fantastical Victorian taxidermy vignettes of Walter Potter, even if his name is not on our tongues. His Museum of Curiosities closed nearly four decades ago, and the collection was sold off in recent years.  “Mr Potter started his collection at the age of 19 when his canary died and he dissected the bird before stuffing it for display in the family summer house. His family kept his museum in Bramber, Sussex open after his death in 1918.”

The link to an article on the “recreation” of Potter’s museum for a limited exhibit has some wonderful images. We hope the ones below will whet your interest.

I had to share this pun-tastic idea for a group are show.

Posted by proxy from Dana’s “stuff to blog” queue while she is on medical hiatus. She reads and appreciates all comments…and apologizes for not being able to respond at the moment.

Dana found us one that I find especially fun today. This young artist debuted this particular display at Monsterpalooza, a Hollywood SFX and Monster expo, this past weekend. His VooDoo Witch Doctor is a fun tip of the pith helmet to Disney and the adventure serials of the 1930’s. And check out that 7 foot tall Shock Monster and Frankenstein Monster he did as well. I want this in my Tiki room!
