Love Me, Tees Me
Love Me, Tees Me: the t-shirt show, Sales Gallery
Curated by Alyssa Cordova and Krystal Glasman
June 5 - July 25, 2010
Love Me, Tees Me, features local artists using commercial techniques to mass produce original t-shirts, create one-of-a-kind wearable art, as well as customized purchases. All of the artists in this exhibition are experienced designers, screen printers or both. Their hands-on approach to every aspect of the garment reinforces our idea of silk-screened shirts as a form of art. The functionality, graphic imagery, and individual meaning illustrate key characteristics of craft, commercial art and fine art, while commenting on and adding to popular culture.
As part of this exhibition we have also invited the artists at Graham Street Press to not only sell their original works in our gallery, but demonstrate silk-screening while producing customized t-shirts for our visitors. They will demonstrate silk-screening on their six-screen mobile press inside the Sales Gallery at the June 5, Arts Walk. Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase shirts and select the design they want printed on them.
Featured artists include: Ryan Bryant, Daniel Ballou, Dave Hill, Taylor Springle, Chad Eaton, Matt Maust, Dana Harvey with collaborators Cody Lusby and Sid, Ryan Callis, Mark Rebennack, Matte Black, Matt Wignall Paul Wignall, Randy Baranoski, Fernando Padilla, James Coxon, and Savio Alphonso.
