Natalie: We run a pretty tight ship around here Noah.
Noah: With a slot machine?
Natalie: It’s a gaming ship.
Ten points to anyone who just got my Arrested Development reference. Anyone who knows anything about us E-Dubians knows we like to blur the lines between fine art and fun. That said, we are excited to announce that plans are underway for our latest project in our multiple series: a slot machine, or “One Armed Bandit” as we’ve been calling it around the shop, featuring the artwork of Enrique Chagoya. Preliminary drawings set the year 2012, the ancient Mayan doomsday, as their theme and feature talking skulls, cataclysmic fireballs, and even the likeness of Chagoya with serpentine body. Sound awesome? You bet it is. Get ready to come try your luck in May when the OAB will make its debut along with several other original prints and multiples by the artist. You won’t get rich, but you just might walk away with a little Chagoya coinage in your pocket.
We’re loving it here (when we’re not locked in the gallery during beautiful weather). And what better way to celebrate than by flying your own balsa wood gliders and planes? We just got a huge shipment in of these guys, so come on down and get your flying ensemble ready.
Walk the Dog Electric
April 15, 5:30-7:30 PM
Please join us for a special event celebrating the artwork of Judy North now on exhibit at Heaven’s Dog and at Electric Works. We will begin at 5:30 with no-host drinks at Heaven’s Dog, Charles Phan’s (of The Slanted Door) new noodle shop, bar and restaurant. Then at 6:30 we will walk just around the corner to Electric Works to view North’s exhibition Why Not Say It? Richard Lang will present a curator’s tour of both venues.
The paintings in Why Not Say It? draw from the well of human mythos as North juxtaposes images from current political events against the timelessness of the desert landscapes of the spiritual quest.
In 1991, North began painting commissioned dog portraits. After many years of combining her personal watercolor visions with an occasional human portrait, she finds capturing the essence and spirit of animal companions a welcome challenge. And plus, they are undeniably great, right?
