Little Friends in Mexico: Opening Tonight the 12th of Nov.
You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their artwork is just as distinctive. Husband-and-wife team J W & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves by designing and printing silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whomever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, these art-school refugees continue their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists' residencies throughout North America, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen. Their awards include honors from the Art Directors' Club, American Illustration, and Communication Arts.
Tonight, Wednesday the 12th of Nov. Opens Little Friends in Mexico at the KONG shop and Gallery, starting at 8:00 pm.
