buyolympia.com started in 1999 as a way to help our friends sell things online.

Well, 20 years later, we’ve got a lot more friends.

We are doing a big group show and invited over 600 of our favorite artists to participate, and in the first couple days over 200 agreed to participate!

Each one will be sending us one or two postcards and we’ll fill the walls with their art.

The show will open on Saturday, June 29th from 3-6pm at Land Gallery — which is also celebrating a birthday this year — its 10th!

A Perception of Color and a Notion of Time

An exploration into the human recognition of color, this project is under the umbrella of Mike Vos’ Dead Cities photography series.

Vos has color vision deficiency and recognizes color differently than his camera does.

These images are an allusion to an individual’s interpretation of the world, not just in subject matter but through different areas in the spectrum of visible light.

This exhibition includes film photographs  developed with a range of experimental techniques and processes that predict a world without humans.

Opening Artist Reception
Saturday, June 1 from 3-5p.

Show runs through June 16, 2019.

Candian-based illustrator and designer comes to Land for his American debut Friday, May 3rd, from 6-9pm.

 “Doozy” is a collection of new work by Vancouver based Illustrator and Artist, Graeme Zirk.

Webster’s defines “Doozy” as “an extraordinary one of its kind” but present day vernacular would suggest otherwise.

It’s a once pleasant word that has been adapted for sarcastic, pejorative purposes. As a result, we’re left with a paradoxical turn of phrase that leaves us our own devices to determine whether something is great or godawful.

Graeme Zirk is interested in creating work with a sentiment and aesthetic that is hard to place. Pieces can feel both refined and flawed, pleasant and melancholic, bold and doubtful, direct and cryptic. Regardless of perception, the show promises to be a real doozy.
