THANKS & HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM PAINT PENS COLLECTIVE!
Thank you for your continued support of Paint Pens Collective throughout 2013, and into 2014. It’s been a big year for change, new ideas, and sharing lots of amazing art. Whether it was curating, writing, creating, or anything else, we were glad to do it.
This year, we held our second annual Quick Draw sketch art event in Boston, our Night Visions group show at Big Umbrella Studios, and Ice Cream Girl at D-Structure in San Francisco. We also had a table at the Oakland Internet Cat Film Festival, created button sets, totes, started our “Month in Art Shows” series, and wrote over thirty-five Featured Artist articles. This was also the year we officially changed our name from Paint Pens in Purses, to Paint Pens Collective, in the hopes of removing gender from the already complicated concepts of “art” and “humans”.
For 2014, we are starting the year off with our first show this Friday, January 3rd, at DStructure. "Hello 2014" is a sci-fi group show celebrating the future with all things fantastic, mind-blowing, kitsch, alien, and beyond. Curated by Shayna Yasuhara.
Thank you again for your continued support, participation, and shared passion for great art. And, without, getting too mushy…HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
