It’s Finally Here! June 9, 2010

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

The WPA show, “Signs for Our Time,” arrives this Friday, and I can’t wait for you to see all of the great pieces from all of the artists. Everyone took the WPA poster concept and interpreted it in all kinds of intriguing and sometimes unexpected ways. Most of the “posters” are really one-of-a-kind art pieces–occasionally on wood and even fabric–and you’re going to see some by artists who have never shown their work at Naked Art before. Then there’s the functional art, which I created. In all, I made about 40 pieces for this show, including three of the posters.

While you’re waiting for Friday night, take a look at these links to get a feel for the real WPA and its posters and other projects:

WPA Posters on Flickr
The WPA in Jefferson County (from the B’ham Public Library)

Hopefully I’ll see you Friday or Saturday! Be sure to stop by, say hi, and let me know what you think of the show.

Friday, June 11: 5:00-9:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 12: 1:00-6:00 p.m.
Naked Art Gallery, 3815 Clairmont Ave., Birmingham
(next to Silvertron in Forest Park)
