Let’s talk awesome stuff. First: Chris and Amanda set up the show unique to the theme of Late Season. Meaning, they created a sort of scene or world within the gallery for these characters to reside. Small creatures hid in mounted crates along the wall, others hung out on shelves or in bell jars … two were even riding an antique wagon full of dried leaves. In this room, it was easy to forget that the city is a sea of sand.
And then there were the critters, themselves. Any follower of Circus Posterus can attest that the demand for two artists has surged in the last couple of years. Their characters exude the most unconventional type of adorable out there, they’re all hand-crafted, limited edition and quite affordable. Consequently, to read that Late Season was a near sell-out before it even opened isn’t a shock in the slightest (and it has since sold out).
I’d like to thank Amanda for being a dream to work with. I kind of wish I could do every show with her because it was SO effortless in coming up with the theme, the color palette, and even installing the show. Thanks Mandi…high five for being a winning team. But I’d like to thank Brandt and Kathie most of all for supporting us and pushing us to do what we love and giving us a platform for which to do so. It feels wonderful to have a ‘home’ in the world.” (I couldn’t go about the mushiness alone.) Anyway, enough words! There’s a whole photo gallery awaiting your eyeballs below! And should you wind up in ABQ sometime soon, stop by the gallery and say hello — the critters leave town Dec. 4th.
