Hi Friends!  It has been quite a few months since I last posted on this blog because I have dedicated myself and every free moment towards building the Danger Gallery that I spoke about earlier this year. Please join us for our grand opening exhibit, “Friends + Lovers” next weekend. Opening reception with the artists will be held on Saturday, October 22nd, from 7-9PM, located at the Danger Gallery in the Glenbrook Industrial Park at 652 Glenbrook Road in Stamford, CT.

The show, which opens with a celebration on Saturday, October 22, will feature work in a range of media by Toby Goodshank (illustrator and former member of the indie rock band Moldy Peaches), Adam Ace (landscape photographer), Mark Andreas (kinetic sculptor), Cris Dam (painter), Ruben Marroquin (fiber artist and weaver) Ben Quesnel (mixed-media artist), Liz Squillace (screen printer and mural artist), and Holly Danger (video artist). Indie folk duo The Moon will present a live musical and visual performance.

The gallery’s debut show, “FRIENDS+LOVERS” is a story of gratitude. It symbolizes the gratitude we feel for all the people and experiences that have helped shape us into who we are today. Considering the overwhelming fact that we could have been alive at any point in history, we are extremely lucky to share the same timeline of life. This show is a celebration of friends, both in person and in spirit, who have helped make the Danger Gallery a reality today.

The Danger Gallery’s mission is to promote artists and musicians through interdisciplinary, multimedia exhibitions, artist talks, and workshops, shaped by its dynamic, future-looking curatorial practice. Echoing the gallery’s name, the primary focus will be showcasing artwork that is unconventional, provocative, contemporary visual and graphic art, video installations, and live music performances. The Danger Gallery is a place where artists and art enthusiasts can be inspired by each other, expand their ideas, meet potential collaborators, and add vibrance to our creative community.

If you can’t make it to the gallery for our opening, don’t worry! While the gallery will only be open to appointments after the opening, we will be scheduling many smaller public events, talks and workshops which will give you the chance to come by and see the show. All artwork will be available for purchase at the show and will be exhibited until the show’s close on December 22nd.

Visual Goodness: The Week in Pictures – July 18

07.18.2013

I’m busy playing catch-up here in blog world – this post is my “Week in Pictures” for last Friday!

It’s been a complete nose-to-the-grindstone week full of nothing but deadlines and lethargic heat waves!

I spent three, very motivated, aka, sleepless nights, tired and wired, working on my new motion graphics reel. I am very close to being able to release it to the public soon, and when I do, you’ll be the first to know! The rest of the time I spent working on an animation project at the day job, and some pretty cool movie trailer titles for the film Shepard and Dark. So I haven’t had a lot of time to gallivant and take photos like I would have liked, but hey, thats real life.

I started a photo-log of the food that I’ve been cooking lately, like I mentioned in my last “Creative Wellness” post. I’m trying to come up with a regular menu of healthy stuff that I can make pretty easily throughout the week. Plus it’s fun to take photos of beautiful, colorful food!

At the very end of the week when all the work was put to bed, I did get to make it out for one super fun birthday BBQ, for fellow redhead blogger, Kristien Del Ferraro of OmNomCT. Redhead bloggers unite!!  Check out the OmnomCT site if you haven’t already – it is a super awesome food blog of all things food related in Fairfield County. An absolute must if you want to find anything good in this area to eat or drink, as well as check out upcoming food events! Happy Birthday to Kristien!  Thanks again for the great night of food, friends, music and smores over the fire pit! 

I wore my favorite shades and my pirate best for the party, and appropriately toted around a Rogue Dead Guy Ale growler. Best purchase of the week!

Lastly, I’ve been working out the details for my upcoming talk at Ignite Stamford on August 15th.   Here is a description of what I’ll be talking about!

And thats a wrap for the week in pictures!
