Opening tonight!
On April 19 myplasticheart will celebrate the opening of Hanna-Barbarians, a group show featuring the work of over 20 artists from the U.S. and abroad. The show’s name is a tongue-in-cheek reference to its theme, with all artists creating pieces using elements from their favorite cartoons. This is a chance for these artists to showcase those cartoons that have influenced them throughout their careers, sometimes being critical elements in their development and interest in the arts. The show is curated by the Studio Miners, Evoker & Team Sweet, who find joy in documenting the wonderfully exciting world of artists, collectors and creatives of all kinds. This theme particularly appealed to the Studio Miners because in their travels and studio visits, they were always fascinated to see what imagery other artists surrounded themselves with to stimulate creativity.
I went slightly off topic making my piece called “another saturday morning” With my idea of Franken Berry sitting in his underwear watching Saturday morning cartoons. I am still fascinated with the old cereal cartoons that would come on Saturday mornings in between all my favorite cartoons. Here is a sneak peek below..If you make it to the show, I’d love to see photos of everything! I bet it’s going to be amazing!
