“1991” Draws Crowd, Temptation to Touch Work

Kim Dorland and his family flew in from their Toronto home turf to attend the opening reception for “1991” – where they were met with a gallery that smelled like his studio and impressed declarations from passerby.

With DJ MoreDillon spinning beats and Will Tee Yang capturing candids, the exhibition opened to positive acclaim and a hearty turn-out. Kim extends his thanks for the support, and MMG encourages you to come by the gallery before this show closes on April 17th, 2010.

Allison Schulnik Shows SXSW What’s Up

SXSW is predominantly known for its mega-music-industry swank, indie showcases, sponsor parties and international attendees that appear to have sprung from the very pages of an Urban Outfitters catalogue. Leave it to Allison Schulnik to find the bridge between this and her acclaimed contemporary art.

Featured in SXSW’s video showcase, Schulnik’s “Forest” – which also doubled as the music video for Grizzly Bear’s “Ready, Able,” nabbed the runner-up position behind “Luv Deluxe” by Cinnamon Chasers, directed by Saman Keshavarz.

Jeremy Fish Stops Off in Austin

If you happen to be in the Lone Star State tomorrow night – specifically, Austin – don’t miss Jeremy Fish‘s first stop on his mobile art tour, “The Road Less Traveled,” at Okay Mountain Gallery!

The opening stop of six scheduled appearances, Jeremy’s show at Okay Mountain is merely the beginning to a Kerouac-esque existence for the artist, and his partner in crime, James “Jimi” Changa. While Jeremy has been keeping us abreast of his adventures, you may also follow his chronicles on the Upper Playground website, where the two adventurers are submitting meticulous notes on their experiences.
