All of us here are dressing the part for Saturday's opening. We hope you will join in on the fun by wearing your best 'Alice' inspired attire. Those who dress up receive a raffle ticket to win a truly exceptional and exclusive art print by artist Michael Kutsche, one of the contributors to the upcoming film.
There are so many wonderful characters from the story so you shouldn't have any trouble finding inspiration. Dress as the White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts, Tweedle Dee or Dum and have a chance to win this one-of-a-kind item!
Besides the fantastic artwork pouring in, we were all GIDDY with excitement last night as Gentle Giant Studios delivered their amazing model maquettes that were created to aid in the production of Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' film. The extreme care and attention given to each character model is astounding. This truly is a sight to behold, a huge treat for fans, and an honor for us to share with everyone. 'Curiouser & Curiouser'opens tomorrow 7-11PM. Don't miss this very important date...and remember don't be late!
Take a tumble down the rabbit hole with us this Saturday as we welcome over 40 international artists paying homage to Lewis Carroll's classic tale Alice in Wonderland.

It is exceptional to say the least and we are honored to have so many talents contributing to this unique display including some of the artists who lent their creativity to the upcoming Tim Burton film release in theaters March 5th.

We've been getting a lot of love and a lot of great video coverage from people who came to the Zombies in Love show and this video below is the most comprehensive I've seen thus far. It contains 10 minutes of footage starting with the zombie walk and ending with the zombie dancers and shooting gallery. Many thanks to Scott Day for putting it together.
If you still have not seen the Zombies in Love exhibition in person, the show comes down today but can still be seen online here:
We are certainly honored to have artist Edel Rodriguez presenting a provocative new body of work in our upstairs Atrium gallery. The showing includes over 40 new original drawings, paintings, sculptures, and site-specific pieces.

By expanding this project to the World Wide Web, we hope to further these ideals.

Last we left our Zombie, he was on a quest alone in desolate territory when suddenly a sign of life...survivors of the infestation. A mother and child hiding out in the woods gathering life's essentials...
As mentioned, our good friend Graham Annable is contributing to Zombies In Love. His contribution is a series of 5 works that tie together to tell a narrative. We thought it would be fun to post some of the series leading up to this Saturday's opening. Below are Bush Jacket #1 and #2...
