Join us for a launch party, reading and presentation of Molly Mendoza’s new work Skip on Tuesday, July 23, 2019. Starts at 6pm, Reading and Presentation at 7pm.
In this epic tale of friendship, compassion and growth, Molly
Mendoza’s stunning art and gripping storytelling immerses you in
alternate worlds filled with mystical creatures and dazzling landscapes.
When Bloom is thrown from their world, and Gloopy is exiled from
their own, the two youngsters find in each other a much-needed kindred
spirit. But as they skip through dimensions and encounter weeping
giants, alligator islands and topsy-turvy 2D worlds, they find that
their greatest challenge will be facing their own fears back home.
We were blown away and humbled by the response to buyolympia’s 20th Anniversary show that we’ve decided to keep it up an extra month. There are over 500 postcards from many of the artists we’ve worked with and everybody who can deserves a chance to get lost in the show.
Jessica Lynch’s show closes this Sunday, April 28th. Come on in and see her great collection of original work. She’s brought us a stunning collection of mixed media pieces of ink, gouache, tissue, mimeograph carbon and oil pastel on pine to the gallery.
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.
