Some time ago I had the pleasure of announcing that I had been invited to take part in a Halloween-themed art show in a gallery in Australia. I sent several pieces at my expense, but never received payment for the one that sold. Now I discover that I will never receive payment, nor will the remaining pieces be returned to me. All attempts to communicate with the gallery owner have been met with silence. Many other artists have been similarly mistreated, as the article below details. The only solace I can find is that some artists lost more pieces than I did. http://fitzroyalty.net/2016/05/24/auguste-clown-gallery-johnston-st-accused-stealing-artists/
The gracious folks at Halloween Artist Bazaar have just posted an interview with yours truly… http://www.halloweenartistbazaar.com/featured-artist-interview-february-2016-grayson-fogg/
So I guess Grayson Fogg got so busy (I know, who isn’t?) he forgot to promote some recent pieces before posting them. I’m too tired to paraphrase him, so I’ll just quote directly:
“I’m afraid that my work schedule of late has been so hectic that I have been remiss in my promotional duties. Far from posting teaser images of soon-to-be-released pieces, and reminding visitors of the upcoming EHAG Emporium (which opened on the last day of September), I am only now getting to the former task, when it is a moot point for one of the pieces. A sculpted bust, “Spooked”, and a color portrait, “Bumble and Squeak”, were my offerings for this most recent Emporium. Although the former has already sold, I will nonetheless include images here (as Etsy removes images once the piece has sold), along with images of the portrait, which is still available. My apologies for the tardiness and confusion.”–Grayson Fogg

Recently, one of my first and favorite pieces, “Halloween Frolics”, sold, which means (of course) that the original is no longer available. However, prints are now available at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html .
It has recently been my great good fortune to be selected to participate in a group show at The Auguste Clown Gallery, in Australia, from October 31st to November 23rd. It is to be an international show, and many outrageously talented artists shall be represented, amongst them Absurd Toys, Abbybelle, Alec Huxley, Augie Pagan, Avery Palmer, Benjamin Lukas, Bennett Slater, Bev Hogue, Buddy Nestor, Casey Weldon, Cat Rabbit, Cheshire Street, Chet Zar, Chris Haas, Clare Toms, Cody Williams, Dan Harding, Dave Burke, Dave Kohlmon, David Richardson, Don Picton, Double Parlour, Emi Slade, Eric Alos, Eric van Straaten, Eva Devon, Frank Forte, Geoffrey Gersten, Grayson Fogg, Horrible Adorables by Jordan Elise, Inga Lena, Irene Garcia, Jake Waldron, Jasmine Worth, Jason Hite, Jed Leiknes, Jeff Christensen, Jen Musatto, Joanna Mulder, Joe Scarano, John Pinkerton, Jonathan Payne, Joshua Harker, Kamilla Mlynarczyk, Kane Kokaris, Kat Caro, Lacey Bryant, Larkin, Lee Harvey Roswell, Lori Nelson, Mai-Ja, Mark Brown, Martin Tomsky, Matthew Dutton, Matthew Levin, Melanie Ashton, Paul Welsh, Puzgle, Ramon Maiden, Rudy Faber, Sandra Arteaga, Selena Leardini, ShirrStone Shelter Dolls, Steph Sciullo, Steve Ferrera, Tate Steinsiek, Tim Lee, Tokyo Jesus, Vincent Cacciotti, and Zombienose. Rather intimidating company, to say the least, but I am nontheless honored to be included.
While I realize that intercontinental air travel to attend an art show may be beyond the means of many (my humble self included), I heartily encourage any and all who can make it to stop by and enjoy what will no doubt be a macabre feast for the eye and mind alike. The Auguste Clown’s astounding array of art may also be enjoyed on your computing machine, by visiting http://www.augusteclown.com/ .
The wrought-iron gates of the July EHAG Emporium have creaked open, admitting courageous visitors. Here is a tiny portion of my contribution to this month’s ghastly selection. Visit http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/ to see the full image.
For any who missed its unveiling at the June EHAG Emporium, here is my own modest contribution. Just looking at it makes me pine for the street markets of The Autumnlands… Well, some of them, at least. (This original piece is available at https://www.etsy.com/listing/193298613/gourmets-a-gentleman-ghoul-and-his?ref=listing-0 , and prints are available at http://fineartamerica.com/featured/gourmets-richard-moore.html?newartwork=true )
The air is hot and stifling, your perspiration-soaked clothes cling to your skin–it can only mean…Halloween is approaching? Well, perhaps not. But the June EHAG Emporium is right around the corner, and just to pique your curiosity, here’s a teaser of the piece yours truly will be unveiling when those creaky doors swing open on June 30th, at 9 pm EST… Be sure to stop by http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/ at the appointed time to see the full piece…
