Thanks to everyone who made it out to the opening reception of the Iceland Residency Exhibition! We had a fantastic time celebrating the show, the artwork, and meeting with all of you!
The Iceland Residency Exhibition features new collections of artwork by the fourteen particiapting artists in the 2014 Iceland Residency. They artists come from a wide variety of backgrounds, mediums, and locations, and have each created a unique series inspired by their travels, conversations, and collaborations.
The opening events began with an artist talk by award-winning illustrator and comic artist, Sam Bosma! Guests filed in to watch Sam present on some of his current projects, narrative works, and thoughts on illustration. The talk was followed by a quick Q & A, where attendees could ask Sam about his experience in illustration, working with art directors, and about some of his most well known works for Fantasy Basketball and Steven's Universe.
If you weren't able to make it for the talk, you can listen to the audio recording of the lecture on the Light Grey Podcast here.
After the lecture, we opened the doors for the reception and creatives meet + greet! There were tons of contributing artists attending, local creatives, and art lovers alike! If you missed the opening reception, you can see the flickr page and documentation of the works here! The show will be on display through June 26th if you would like to stop by and view the life size photographs, hand bound zines, and intricate originals! You can also find all of the artwork and limited edition pieces on the Light Grey Shop!
Mark your calendars for the next opening on July 3rd! We have the opening reception of Patches + Stitches and artist talk by Teagan White. You can find all of the details on the facebook event page.
The Iceland Residency Exhibition opening was sponsored in part by Sewerd Co-Op and the Wedge Co-Op.
