Manchester Welcomes Kim Rugg

MMG’s Kim Rugg will be featured in a two-person exhibition at Castlefield Gallery, Manchetser, this spring. Opening February 20 and closing April 3, 2010, her new work will be shown in conjunction with Leo Fitzmaurice. Castlefield’s statement on the exhibition:

“Through the dissecting and re-arranging of mass produced information based material, such as newspapers, brochures, comics and packaging, the artists fragment our visual and cognitive understanding of images and text, and force us to reconsider the familiar from a completely new perspective.”

For more information on this exhibition, please visit the Castelfield website.


Jeremy Fish Embarks on The Road Less Traveled

Missed Jeremy Fish‘s solo exhibition at Laguna Art Museum? Can’t get out to Santa Monica to check out MMG’s newly arrived Fish works? Lucky for you – there’s a chance Mr. Fish will bring his art to your town!

Pulling a bit of a Kerouac-meets-Merry-Pranksters move, Fish will be touring his art on “The Road Less Traveled: Mobile Art Tour 2010,” visiting cities from Austin to Hamburg from March through July. For ongoing updates, you can visit the Juxtapoz Magazine blog, to which Fish regularly contributes.

Power of Selection Still On View

If you’re near the windy city, be sure to dash over to Western Exhibitions to see the much-acclaimed “The Power of Selection, part 1″ (curated by Fecal Face’s Ryan Travis Christian) and “Suitable Video: Works from the Suitable Exhibitions Archive” (curated by Scott Wolniak).

The simultaneous group exhibitions feature work by Sterling Ruby, Sarah Conaway, Alika Cooper, Ben Stone, Eric Yahnker and MMG’s Allison Schulnik, among others. On view through February 6th, the shows have received positive review from Time Out Chicago, ArtSlant, and the Chicago Reader, among numerous blog posts and Tweets.

“Home for Hobo” Opens in T-24 Hours

Mark Moore Gallery is kicking off the new year with a long-awaited sophomore solo show from LA-native, Allison Schulnik.

Since Schulnik’s uber-impastoed paintings last graced our walls in 2007, she’s been included in over twenty international group shows and four solo exhibitions. Aside from being the subject of many publications and the artistic director of indie-music-sensation Grizzly Bear’s last music video, she’s found some time to create “Home for Hobo” – which consists of twelve new paintings, among a few other goodies.

Schulnik will be in attendance for her opening tomorrow evening, January 9th, from 5-7pm. We suggest you come see (and smell) these luscious works for yourself….or be horribly depressed that you missed it.
