Summer 2015

I'm just coming off of an amazing month in residence at the University of Windsor where I had chance to flesh out an entirely new process and project.  I'll get some images up as soon as I am able.  This summer is proving to be a fast paced one to say the least.  I have several things on the horizon, so let me give you the most immediate few.

There is still time to catch Product Displacement at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City.  A group show that explores the invasion of media and the arts by advertising.  There are a lot of great artists in this show, so check it out if you get a chance.  Runs until July 18, 2015.

Opening on June 13th is Modern Eden Gallery's 4th Annual Portrait Invitational.  This year's theme is Superhero, and I've chosen to take a somewhat abstract approach to Batman.  This is my second group show with ME, and I'm very excited to be working with them again.  The show runs until July 6th, so if you're in San Francisco this summer, drop in and check it out.

Finally, opening in Melbourne, Australia is 6x6.  A large show of small work organized by Auguste Clown Gallery.  The show boasts over 35 international artists and should prove to be an overwhelming experience.  The show opens on June 19th and runs until July 5th so if you're in Southern Australia I hope you can check it out.



There are a few more things coming up before the fall, so I will do my best to keep you all updated as soon as I have all the information.  You can also follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for quick updates on shows and what's developing in the studio.

May 2015!

I'm excited to announce that I will be attending a residency at the University of Windsor for the month of May.  I will be undertaking research for a new project and working out a few older pieces while I'm there.  I will also be giving a talk about my work on May 6 between 5-7pm at the School of Creative Arts (Lebel Building) Room 115.  If you're in the Windsor-Detroit area swing by and watch me fumble through public speaking.  Always good for a laugh.

Also coming up in May I will have a piece in Corey Helford Gallery's next group show "Product Displacement" which explores the invasion of the arts by advertising.   If you're in Culver City you can check out the show opening on May 23rd 7-10pm, running through to June 20th.

Lastly, a nice interview with me came out in the quarterly mens fashion publication Peter, Tom &Dave this week, and they were nice enough to send me the pages for you to read:

San Francisco!

I'm pleased to tell you I'm participating in two more shows in San Francisco this year.  Coming up in March is Gauntlet Gallery's annual 12 x 12 exhibition which brings together 50 hand picked artists to work in a square foot of surface.  Running from March 14th - April 18th the show features some great names whose work I admire.  Reception is on the March 14th, 7:30pm, all the details are [here]

The second is coming up in June at Modern Eden Gallery for their 4th Annual Portrait Invitational.  This year the theme is Superheroes and I'm taking on Batman, which will be a new challenge for me.  The exhibition runs June 13–July 6, reception on the 13th, and should be an interesting mix of artists and ideas.  More details [here

Looking forward to seeing you again soon San Francisco!

A little peek at the Platinum Blend lineup went live on the Hi-Fructose blog on New Year's Day, including a look at the new piece I've sent down.  I'd like to thank Hi-Fructose Magazine for the nod, Modern Eden Gallery for hosting and of course Stephanie Chefas for including me in this great show.  Needless to say, my 2015 is off to a great start.

Venison Magazine




I have a great little back and forth about transition, failure, and instagram in the winter 2014 issue of San Francisco based Venison Magazine.  It was honestly a pleasure to have such a frank discussion with artist Adriana Villagran about the ins and outs of my new work and how I present it to the digital sphere.

January 2015

I'm very excited to be included in three shows in the first few weeks of the new year.  They are all over the place, so if one is close to you I hope you can make stop by and check it out.

Platinum Blend curated by Stephanie Chefas (Platinum Cheese) at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco CA.  A huge list of great artists, a sincere pleasure to be included on this list.
Opens January 10th 2015, running until the 31st.

Lightning Blend at Love Gallery in Denver CO.  A mix of new blood, and aesthetic mayhem is how this show was pitched to me by gallery owner Tom Bond.  I couldn't say no to that.
Opens January 16th 2015, running until Feb 15th

Finally, Cedar Ridge Creative Centre in Scarborough ON is featuring some of my work as part of their contemporary programming from January 11th 2015 until the 23rd.

Upcoming

I've just signed on to be a part of the 2014 G40 Art Summit in Washington DC next month organized by Art Whino and hosted at their event space, Blind Whino.   The show runs from September 14th - October 4th with lots of cool programming throughout the month.
I'm in the midst of finishing off the piece I have planned for the show which will be an experiment with something I've wanted to try out for a while, and this seemed like good opportunity to dive into it head first.  You can keep up with the progress of the piece on my Instagram feed (@bbbriandonnelly)where I'm allowing my process to be public.

In January I've agreed to be part of a show curated by Stephanie Chefas at Platinum Cheese in San Francisco.  Details are still coming on that one, but I'll try to keep this newsfeed up-to-date as the details become more concrete.

I'm also just finishing up some work that started in the winter, so there will be some new images for you to digest soon, promise.
