Please could somebody take us back to the Clutter Gallery?! Our trip to Beacon last month was one of our most favourite trips. We travel a lot for TTC and getting the opportunity to visit the iconic Clutter Gallery after Five Points in June was right up there with the best of trips. However, we are now back at home in the UK, but that doesn’t mean the fun stops at Clutter Gallery. Nope, they have another jam packed weekend incoming that you’re all invited to!
Not ONE but TWO great events this weekend! First up is the Tara McPherson Summer Pop up! Opening at 2pm through till 4pm ET tomorrow (Saturday 14th July). An opportunity to meet McPherson and shop the traveling selection of art prints, music posters, books, stickers, enamel pins, buttons, postcards and more! Always a win. We finally had the chance to meet Tara at Five Points 2018, and it was an absolute joy!
Once Tara has left the building, The Great Unknown Clutter Gallery showing opens as the nights starts to grow closer. Three tremendously talented artists have sent their works to Clutter to be shown to the Beacon massive! Remjie Malham, Seymour and Wonder Goblin! A right ol’ mouthful of talent!
Remjie, hailing from Norway, has been creating amazing monsters since 2008. With a distinctive and unique style, Remjie hit the ground running with her first production vinyl, Doro.
Peter Kelk is a New Zealand born artist currently residing and working from his studio in Melbourne, under the pseudonym ‘Seymour’.
He uses a diverse range of mediums including sculpture and print to create his stylistically recognizable pieces that range from limited edition art toys to intricately detailed one-off sculpted pieces.
In the past few years, he has undertaken a wide range of projects including several vinyl production pieces, and gallery shows.
About Wonder Goblin:
James Sizemore, born and raised in the rural town of Moreland, Georgia, started seeing demons at the age of seven. James was always encouraged to express his demonic visions through his supportive artist parents, and this expression flourished into a fantastical art career.
Sizemore’s latest endeavor has been the creation of his own toy company, WONDER GOBLIN. With a more colorful and playful outlook on the demons that James has befriended over the years, the company offers original monster creations in soft vinyl and resin which he also sculpts and paints by hand. James loves making toys more than any other medium because for now, it keeps the nightmares at bay.
The Great Unknown show opens at 6-9pm ET tomorrow (Sat 14th July). If you’re interested in nabbing yourself some awesome artwork before the masses from Beacon get their hands on it, you’ll need to sign up the Preview List, which you can do HERE.
As the great James Frazer once said, take me back to Clutter Gallery where the grass is green and the girls & boys are pretty! Ok, I’m drunk paraphrasing here. But, please take us back!
