Burtonwood and Holmes: 18th Evanston Art Center Biennial 2006

Dear all,

Been a while since we posted. Been a wee bit busy. Need a robot to post our blogs for me i reckon. Holly and I will have work in the 18th Evanston Art Center Biennial from May 28th thru July 9th. The Evanston Art Center is located at 2603 Sheridan Road, Evanston. Thanx to all who came out to check out the installation @ Around the Coyote in February. Since then we've shown new work at the Nova Art Fair (now Bridge Art Fair) at the City Suites Hotel in Chicago. We had two pieces in the GARDENfresh room, one of which sold (the tank) the other needs a home (the plane).

Both these works are part of the new series we're rolling out using the junk mail and marketing detritus RE-printed on rag paper in conjunction with some old fashioned painting. Some sculptures waiting in the wings too.

The fair was awesome (i'm Operations Director for the fair, so i would say that wouldn't i?, but nevertheless for our first hotel fair i'd say we did pretty good. Holly and I also contributed a piece to the Gallery 37 benefit auction @ the April MixArt event @ the James Hotel also in Chicago. The piece was in a similar vein to our new work, a b-52 overlayed over a spread for Travel and Leisure Magazine (event sponsors), and an orientalist image inserted top left.

Watch this space for news of upcoming shows at the University of St. Francis in Joliet and possible sculpture project downtown Chicago.
