What was originally going to be a 2-person show turned into my first solo show in over a decade. How has it been that long?? I don’t know, but I haven’t been this excited in a LOOOONG time.
I’ve been painting my ass off and am still going strong until I have to pack up this show and deliver it all to the gallery. I’m shooting for over 20 new originals, ranging from a giant 60”x40” tiger down to some small mixed media works on paper and scraps of wood as well as a limited edition print release.
WHAT: Life Wyldest, New artwork by Erik Abel
WHEN: Opening Reception Saturday, September 18th, 5-8pm
WHERE: Archimedes Gallery, 139 West 2nd St. #3, Cannon Beach, Oregon.
WHO: Me, and hopefully you.
There will be beverages outside and masks will be required inside the gallery unless this whole stupid thing miraculously just “disappears” as was advertised last year by you know who.
This show opening is part of the Cannon Beach annual Earth and Ocean Arts Festival and I’ll be giving an artist talk complete with a fancy slideshow at the Chamber of Commerce at 2pm, Friday Sept 17th. Come hear me ramble! I’ll try to entertain but making no promises.
