Outer Space Arcata Hosting ’11¢’ Outer Space Gallery Exhibit Closing Party This Saturday
This is a press release from the Breakfast All Day Collective:
Featured this month is local painter and Humboldt State student OTTO. “Each creation is a segment out of my internal universe being effected and inspired by real world occurrences, both glorious and tragic. These paintings act as documentations of various parts of that universe emoting. The umbrella feeling being one of insubordination against the confining crutch of figurative depictions. Abstractions are often seen as unskilled, these are my evidence against that.” -OTTO
Also showing are five rock’n’roll themed paintings by Eureka based painter Seana Burden. Seana Burden’s work blends many recognizable local people and music legends into a fantastical sparkling rock’n’roll dreamscape as can only be portrayed by Burden. Seana also has a number of Valentines on display featuring legendary musicians of past and present paired with portraits of local artists. If you’ve lived in Humboldt for awhile, and are an artist, you’re probably in this show!
HSU graduate and multimedia artist @sonnaie (instagram) is also showing at this event, contributing an immersive installation inside of their former painting studio at Outer Space. The installation is meditative and warm and invites the audience to reflect in a comfortable, peaceful environment. The installation is titled, ‘the womb.’
To celebrate all of the artists hard work and closing of this month’s exhibit Outer Space & “11¢” will host two performances beginning around 8:30 pm — A performance art piece by Taylor Snowberger and a musicial performance by ethereal rock band INDUSIUM.
This event is FREE (donations encouraged), All Ages, Drug Free, Alcohol Free and strives to be a safer space.
Outer Space Arcata is run by the Breakfast All Day Collective, a DreamMaker Project by the Ink People Center for the Arts.
