I'm very excited that The Joyful Bewilderment exhibition that I was involved in last October in London is now traveling to Edinburgh, Scotland to my favorite bookstore / gallery Analogue Books! The exhibit features the works of some of my favorite artists: Craig Atkinson, Holly Stevenson, James Jarvis, Josh Petherick, Marcus Oakley, Nigel Peake, Ryan Jacob Smith, Simon Peplow, Steven Harrington, Supermundane and so many other amazing thing makers. The Exhibit will be on view from the 28th of March until the 28 of April and the opening reception is on Saturday the 28th of March from 7-9pm at:
102 West Bow
A little about the exhibit from the curators:
"The Joyful Bewilderment" showcases the work of a group of like minded image-makers. This exhibition can be seen as an expression of these artists compulsion to create. Fundamentally, the artists in the show all share an essential motivation - to explore the possibilities of enhancing everyday life by making magic from the mundane. The works in the show utilize modest and direct means - including works in pencil, paint and ink along with photographic works which record and celebrate everyday happenstances."
Thanks to the amazing Simon Peplow for his orchestration of all this!
