Beyond the Familiar: 21st Anniversary Show
The Outré Gallery in Melbourne, Australia is hosting the Beyond the Familiar: 21st Anniversary Show from May 11th to June 4th, 2018. The exhibition is a celebration of the 21st Anniversary of the Outré Gallery and showcases original work from around fifty international artists including Josh Agle. The opening night is on Friday 11th May from 6pm to 8pm with drinks provided by Campari Australia Official.
The early posters show the Josh Agle painting Bati Mon Nid from the exhibition A Seat in the Kingdom which was held in Australia during early 2017. This original acrylic on panel painting measures 24″ by 14.5” and retailed at the earlier exhibition for $16,900 AUD.
The later posters for the Beyond the Familiar: 21st Anniversary Show include a cropped image of the new Shag painting The Dream House, created for the exhibition, which celebrates architectural firm Holgar & Holgar.
The original acrylic paint on wooden panel painting The Dream House measures 20.5″ by 14.5″ and sold for AU$14,650 (approximately US$10,000).
The painting on the wall shows Naliandrah, a stunning building, designed by Holgar & Holgar, situated in Toorak, a suburb of Melbourne.
Tiki Caliente 10
The Tiki Caliente 10 event is at the Caliente Tropics Resort in Palm Springs, California from the 17th to the 20th May 2017. The Shag Store pop-up store on Saturday 19th May will release the Aumauri Tapairu print. This three-color serigraph is the third release in the new Unthropology series depicting young women set in Polynesian Islands wearing traditional dress alongside traditional tiki carvings. The series began with Wahine Ata Ahua at Tiki Caliente 2017 and continued with Uha Rapa Nui at Tiki Oasis 2017. This picture is for the Cook Islands and shows aumauri, light silvery green fish up to three feet long, drying on the line. The tapairu, eldest daughter of a chief or beauty, can be seen sitting down. The print measures 8” by 10”, is hand numbered and signed in a limited edition of 100 copies, and retails for $99 USD at Tiki Caliente or $199 USD afterward.
Carnival of Art & Magic
Baby Tattooville and Beyond Brookledge have been merged into one weekend for the Carnival of Art & Magic at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, California from the 18th to the 20th May 2018. Shag was invited as one of six featured artists at the weekend event.
As part of an “Art Jam!”, Josh Agle worked with fellow artists Olivia De Berardinis, Brandi Milne, Johnny Kmndz Rodriguez, Craig Elliott and Camille Rose Garcia to paint a panel which was later photographed and turned into a print overnight for attendees.
The Comic-Con International event runs at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California from the 18th to the 22nd July 2018. The three images below are part of an official licensed limited edition print and shirt package available exclusively at the show to celebrate fifty years since the first Planet of the Apes movie.
The Shag Store will be at booth #3920 with Josh Agle present from 3pm to 4pm each day to sign work and meet visitors.
A triptych celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Planet of the Apes film for Twentieth Century Fox will be released at SDCC2018. The three giclée prints are In Six Months We’ll Be Running This Planet, Beware the Beast: Man and You Might Not Like What You Find. The prints measure 20″ x 40″ (51cm x 102cm) and are released in a limited edition of 100 copies.
The six Cocktail Birds mini-prints are also being released at SDCC2018 on the 18th July. Each print measures 5” by 7” (13cm x 18cm), is limited to 200 copies and costs US$60, or in a very unpopular pricing scheme US$99 after the event via the Shag Store or online from the 24th July. Great for people able to visit the show, an unfortunate and unreasonable extra US$234 for the set for those not able to attend. The images are printed on wood and are the Martini Bird, Daiquiri Bird, Campari Bird, Negroni Bird, Bacardi Bird and Bellini Bird.
Five new cloisonné pins are debuting at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. The five pins are German Skull, Old Crow, Shrunken Head, Space Kitty, and Star Cat (left to right below) and retail for US$20 each.
