Hey all! It’s been a crazy February! Not only did my Kickstarter get funded (woo hoo!) and now I get to start the process of getting the enamel pins printed, carded, and shipped out, but I also have a couple of upcoming events I’m dropping artwork off for! Take a look:
Ralph Baer Day, March 7th – 12th, 2019
Where: Jupiter Hall
89 Hanover St.
Opening Reception: March 8th, 2019 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM
I will have four video game inspired prints up for purchase including Red Dead Redemption 2 “Stay Gold, Ponyboy“, Detroit: Become Human “Robot Partner“, The Wolf Among Us “Cry, Wolf”, and Streets of Rage 2 “Streets of Rage”.
Ralph Baer Day 2019 is a multimedia art exhibition at Jupiter Hall that honors the legacy of Ralph Baer, the “Father of Video Games.” Ralph Baer Day 2019 features a 15 foot interactive video game, the Baer Project Ping Pong installation.
A former Manchester resident, Ralph Baer invented the first video game console and held over 150 patents on games, devices, and other technology like SIMON and the light gun (used to play Duck Hunt). Baer was an inventor and creator throughout his life, and while he didn’t necessarily want honors, he did want to inspire others to make things and play.
Ralph Baer’s inventions are a work of art that have inspired so many more creators. This exhibit of video game inspired art will serve as a reminder of the impact Ralph had on the lives of all.
All funds raised from donations and from purchasing game-related artwork on display during Ralph Baer Day 2019 will benefit the Baer Bench – Manchester, NH Project, a commemorative square featuring a bench with a seated statue of Ralph Baer: https://www.siliconmillyard.co/baersquare
Birds, March 11th – May 31st, 2019
Where: 100 Market Gallery
100 Market St.
Opening Reception: March 15th, 2019 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
I will have one framed print up for purchase, “Birds Common to New England”
What do you think of when you think about birds? How important are birds in your life, in your community and in our world? Do you relate to the hummingbird with its tiny heart of paper-thin walls beating at over 1,000 beats a minute or do you find the majestic eagle more interesting? Or perhaps it is the ‘stuff’ of birds that you find interesting — intricate nests, the astounding diversity of eggs or amazing bird’s eye views?
Birds have been a source of artistic inspiration for at least 40,000 years. And through DNA we know Tyrannosaurus Rex is the ancestor of the common chicken. It seems we have a lot more in common with birds than we may realize — they make nests, have long term relationships and mourn the loss off their young. Birds are hardy, beautiful and important.
