Mary Ellen Matthews

Mary Ellen Matthews

Even devout watchers of Saturday Night Live may not recognize the name. Many of us can name our favorite sketches (Herlihey Boy/Matt Foley) and argue till we’re blue in the face about which era we prefer (Hartman/Sandler/Farley/Carvey/Meyers/Rock). Casts have come and gone in the 35 years since inception. However, there has always been one constant all these years. Still photography has been used as a way to promote the hosts and musical guests as well as serve as a cue to affiliates that the show is coming back from break. The idea behind the photos have always been to showcase the talent on the show and give you something interesting to look at. Enter Mary Ellen Matthews. (more…)

The Sketchbook Project, 2011

It’s like a concert tour but with sketchbooks.

We’re not even halfway through 2010, but you might want to start thinking about 2011 a bit. At least, if you are interested in participating in The Sketchbook Project, 2011.

Organized by Art House Co-op, a group that seeks to create large art projects that tie hundreds to thousands of artists together, the newest incarnation of their Sketchbook Project for 2011 is possibly the most ambitious attempt yet. Unlike other sketchbook sharing and interactive projects, this one gives each artist their own book to work with, rather than depending on artists to share and ship books among themselves.

Which, honestly? Is probably a good thing. Each person is responsible for their own destiny and whatnot. It’s pretty sensible. (more…)

Oliver Vernon at David B. Smith Gallery

Plumnet (detail) – 46″x54″ – Acrylic on Canvas – 2010

I’m lucky enough to be on the David B. Smith Gallery‘s physical mailing list and I regularly get beautiful postcards promoting their latest shows. The most recent one featuring the work of Oliver Vernon really caught my eye. The paintings have a beautiful chaotic, layered, almost three-dimensional look. The works are more about texture and composition rather than subject matter, but they’re all very interesting. You can enjoy a show preview at the David B. Smith Gallery’s website, and if you’re in the Denver, CO area, you can stop in and see these in person through May 1st.

To coincide with the show, the gallery has released 2 giclee prints of Vernon’s “The Flood” and “Full Bleed” paintings. Each print is $200, an edition of 25, and printed on premium art paper with a deckled edge. Images after the break.
