This week my illustrations for "Santa Gets Healthy", a picture book by author Frank LaSorso were due, as well as getting my "Jelly Monster" Sculpture to the gallery on Grand Ave. This weekend "The Mutant Piñata Show opened with much fanfare.
"The Jelly Monster" got a great spot right by the front door!
Here I am at the opening.
And here's Chloe (and Phoebe) with her "Rabbit-Mermaid" hovering above.
As usual there were some incredible artists participating in the show.
I liked this crazy guy piñata.
This creepy bat made quite an impression.
Some were more arty.
Some were cutesy.
And one was actually alive. This performance artist, Babs A'Delic, hung from the ceiling for hours on opening night. I was volunteering that night for the gallery and she really had stamina! It helped that around 8pm a man came in to see the show, who happened to be a classical guitarist and asked to sit and play as the acoustics were great in there. He was incredible! Originally from north Africa, he said he liked to play in art galleries and has even played in the Louvre. All in all it was quite a night. The show is up for several more weeks. If you're in Phoenix be sure to stop by!
