Message in a Bottle explores the romantic history of blindly throwing messages to sea, leaving it to the hands of fate to deliver them to their intended recipient. Visitors are invited into a maritime ship chandlery, where contemporary artists have created their own message for the ages, captured inside bottles and waiting to be unlocked by their new owners. A special animation by Beau Stanton will further the seafaring fantasy.

Spectrum Fantastic Art Live Kansas City
Opens May 17, 2013 Runs through May 19, 2013
Spectrum Fantastic Art Live is a three-day celebration of the art and artists that bring to life the fantastic worlds of our favorite science fiction, fantasy, and horror books, movies, and comics. SFAL allows fans and artists to mingle, shop, learn and be inspired through exhibits of original works of art, panel discussions and workshops hosted by some of the most notable members of this artistic community. They can get their personal portfolios critiqued by leading industry Art Directors and revel in the vast creative energy that permeates every facet of the experience. Our goal is to honor our industry, celebrate the creators and mentor new talent.
I will be a special guest at this years event! Below is my schedule... and I'll most likely be at my booth the rest of the time.
AIGA Austin Design Ranch is an intimate, three-day, hands-on, workshop-driven design retreat in a rustic setting on the banks of the Guadalupe River.
Design Ranch isn’t one of those slide-and-lecture “big conferences,” it’s about putting down your mouse, getting your hands dirty and reviving your creative spirit. Our goal is not to teach you the latest fad or tech trick. What your clients and businesses need more than ever is you, at full creative power, doing your best work, so we’d rather you go home with something a little more timeless: a fire in your belly and a fresh take on design that can only be achieved by unplugging and gettin’ a little dirty.
The 150 folks lucky enough to attend will find themselves rubbing elbows with well-known workshop leaders and fellow attendees in a way most conferences can’t deliver—next to the campfire, out on the dance floor, and in unique, hands-on workshops.
I am so excited to be a guest at this years event, and to put together a fun workshop for it.
It's time for some good old rock and roll, people!!! And all the awesome rock poster art that goes along with it...

Eric Firestone is pleased to announce a summer group show “Nose Job,” curated by Carlo McCormick, to open July 15the and runs through August 21th in East Hampton. With a sly wink to Warhol’s iconic early Sixties image “Before and After” in which he appropriated and altered a plastic surgery ad for a nose job to comment on our culture’s ideals of beauty, Nose Job is in fact a tribute to the old vernacular folk-art form of nose art dating from both World Wars in which soldiers painted images and slogans on the noses of military planes.
Firestone and McCormick began the project by scouring the ‘bone yards’ of the Arizona desert where the old disused airplanes of America’s air force go to die and collected a wide range of nose cones from these planes in various shapes and sizes. The pair invited an array of contemporary artists to transform these curious relics into objects of art. What started as a mere whim found deep resonance in the creative community as many artists have their own associations and inspirations from the legacy of nose art.

"Eau de parfum opens the 2011 season of Dorothy Circus Gallery, bringing together for the first time in Italy nine-tenths of the most promising American artists of the Pop Surrealism, which can claim previous experience in the major exhibition galleries of American sector, with an invitation to confrontation on an issue where memory and emotions are inextricably linked.
The artists will try to materialize a intangible world, shapeless, that seems to be unreal, just because it cannot be perceived by the eyes, and that can be reach only through a sense, a universe that is fragile and intense, persistent and intangible, that Proust-talking-holds immense building of Memory on their almost impalpable drops."

‘Never Judge...?’ A Group Exhibition In Association with Penguin Books 3rd - 19th December
Never judge a book by the cover. The age old proverb is easier said than done, when choosing a read who can't be swayed by good cover art, the cover after all has the job of explaining thousands of words in an instant. Think of the classic covers that grace the jackets of thousands of books and the names of the truly great artists that have put their artwork to novels, creating iconic classic covers for these classic books, but is the book cover dying? With the advent of the iPad it's now questionable how long the printed novel and its cover will be around, just like the album cover, it'll be resigned to a thumbnail in iTunes.
StolenSpace in association with Penguin plan to celebrate the art of the book cover with a show titled ' Never Judge?’ this December.
Featured Artists: Aaron Rose, Anders Nilsen, Anthony Lister, Blek Le Rat, Buff Monster, D*FACE, Dave Kinsey, Estevan Oriol, Gary Taxali, Jeff Soto, Jim Houser, Jon Burgerman, Kid Acne, Mark Dean Veca, Maya Hayuk, Methane Studios, Miss Van, Parra, Pete Fowler, Ripo, Sam Flores, SAN, SEEN, Shepard Fairey, Skull Phone,Sylvia Ji, Tara McPherson, The London Police, WK Interact, and many mor

Playboy Redux Contemporary Artists Interpret the Iconic Playboy Bunny
August 27 - September 12, 2010 Opening Reception: Friday, August 27, 2010, 7-10PM At the new Rotofugi Gallery location: 2780 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago About The Exhibit: Playboy Enterprises in collaboration with The Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh) invited over 20 contemporary and street artists to reinterpret the iconic Playboy Bunny in celebration of the opening of the first Playboy Club in Chicago 50 years ago in 1960. Known at that time for her satin bunny suit, cotton tail and rabbit ears, the Playboy Bunny served cocktails and glamour in equal doses. Many luminaries once worked as Bunnies, including Deborah Harry, Gloria Steinem and Lauren Hutton. For Playboy Redux: Contemporary Artists Interpret the Iconic Playboy Bunny, artists were asked to create a new look for the Bunny, a veritable makeover to create the Bunny of the future. The selected artists have presented a number of new takes on this iconic image, and works ranges range in medium including photography, painting, sculpture, drawing and video.
Playboy Redux was originally shown at The Warhol Museum in March-June, 2010. Rotofugi Gallery is proud to now exhibit and sell these works along with some new additions.
This project is part of Playboy's year-long 50th Anniversary celebration of the Playboy Club and Playboy Bunny. The exhibit is curated by Aaron Baker, Ned West and Rotofugi Gallery.
Participating Artists: Featuring Josh ‘Shag’ Agle, Jennybird Alcantara, Scott Anderson, Glenn Barr, Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, R.

More about Bunny Redux: The Andy Warhol Museum in collaboration with Playboy Enterprises invited over 20 contemporary and street artists to reinterpret the iconic Playboy Bunny in celebration of the opening of the first Playboy Club in Chicago 50 years ago in 1960. Known at that time for her satin bunny suit, cotton tail and rabbit ears, the Playboy Bunny served cocktails and glamour in equal doses. Many luminaries once worked as Bunnies, including Deborah Harry, Gloria Steinem and Lauren Hutton. For Playboy Redux: Contemporary Artists Interpret the Iconic Playboy Bunny, artists were asked to create a new look for the Bunny, a veritable makeover to create the Bunny of the future. The selected artists have presented a number of new takes on this iconic image, and works ranges range in medium including photography, painting, sculpture, drawing and video.
Co-presented by the American Poster Institute (API) and SXSW, Flatstock 24 will display the works of more than 100 artists from across North America and the globe. Posters representing decades of styles, colors and techniques will be on display and for sale as well as additional merchandise. Show up early and be ready to be overwhelmed with amazing posters.

In conjunction with Baby Tattooville 2008, Beyond Baby Tattooville presents artwork by over a dozen artists loosely tied together in the ambiguously-named "pop surrealism" or "lowbrow" art movement. This originally underground art movement formed in Southern California in the 70s and 80s and has roots and influences from punk music, comics such as R. Crumb, hot rod art, and various other underground subcultures, in addition to surrealism and figurative art. After being largely ignored by many traditional fine art institutions, including museums, this movement has recently been getting its due. Some of the most notable artists of this scene are a part of the show, including Glenn Barr, Dave Cooper, Bob Dob, Joe Ledbetter, Shag, Amy Sol, Michael Whelan, Tara McPherson, Lola and many more. In addition to the exhibition, the Baby Tattooville 2008 event will be held at the Mission Inn Oct 3 - 5. More information can be found online at www.babytattooville.com. A reception will be held on October 4, with many of the artists in attendance. This exhibit is a partnership between RAM and Bob Self of Baby Tattoo along with Billy Shire Fine Arts in Los Angeles.
Tara McPherson will not be attending this event in person.
I will be a guest speaker in this years ICON 5 in NYC.

Martha Rich with
Tara McPherson, Jordin Isip and Jonathan Levine
The increasing popularity and success of the small gallery has created a need for new, affordable and original art. Exhibiting in a gallery is a great way for illustrators to expand beyond traditional forms of illustration and generate additional income. How do you take that next step into the exhibiting world and get your work out of the studio and on the gallery wall? Illustrator Martha Rich questions gallery curator Jonathan Levine and illustrators Jordin Isip and Tara McPherson about the challenges and successes connected to their gallery experiences. Curious about showing your work in galleries, curating your own shows or developing a new line of revenue and expanding your creativity? This session is for you.

"Shaky Line, Shaky Times: Ed Koren and Ed Sorel in Conversation with Dan Nadel" will feature master satirical illustrators Ed Koren and Ed Sorel who will discuss their famously anxious drawing styles and nearly half century' worth of drawings for hundreds of books and publications.

The FLATSTOCK poster show series is presented by the American Poster Institute(API). It is an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring the work of many of the most popular concert poster artists working today.
The FLATSTOCK shows provide the general public with an ongoing series of opportunities to see fine poster art in person and to meet the artists who've created it.
American Institute of Graphic Arts New York presents PrettyUgly
PrettyUgly looks at the work of three young illustrators, Aya Kakeda, Tara McPherson and Souther Salazar, exponents of the so-called New Weird America aesthetic. Delicate and deranged, homespun and psychedelic, they are confidently situated among the high/low, illustration/design/art pigeonholes. And they seem to have found their place in the commercial environment without any obvious loss to the soul of their work.
Moderated by Laurie Rosenwald.

That's right. Our renegade group of rock poster artists have managed to pull off six consecutive poster conventions in less than three years, and now we are gearing up for our seventh. Poster artists from around the world will hit Seattle , Washington for FLATSTOCK 7, the bi-annual convention, sponsored by the American Poster Institute, dedicated to the promotion of music poster art and design worldwide. You've heard the sordid tales of deluxe poster prints sold to the general public by the artists themselves, now come see for yourself. Your favorite bands put to paper by your favorite artists coming together for the freak out in one big ass room.
FLATSTOCK 7 is free for all with a Bumbershoot ticket, which is only $18 per day in advance. Show up early and be ready to be overwhelmed with amazing posters (you might want to bring some dough too since you won't want to leave empty handed.) FLATSTOCK 7 is an all-ages event.
