Leslie Levings & Shing Yin Khor Present: The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts!

So this may be the cutest exhibition to ever happen, uh ... ever. Uber-adorable creature creatresses Leslie Levings (Beastlies) and Shing Yin Khor (Sawdust Bear) have teamed up to transform Leanna Lin's Wonderland into a "bestiary of curious critters" this May with their two person show, The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts. From the looks of it, the show is about dwellers of the dark and dusty: banker's boxes in an emporium, old specimen tanks, or the discarded shells from a lush forest.

What I'm loving most about all this (and this is just a taster of what's to come) is how well Leslie and Shing's work complements one another. While keeping their unique styles in tact, they've managed to create a melange of monsters that are quite believably from the same universe. Kinda makes you wish you could let them all crawl into your pocket, no?

The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts opens May 11th through July 14th at Leanna Lin's Wonderland. An opening reception with the artists will be held May 11th from 6pm to 10pm, so stop in and say hi!
