A Cautionary Tale

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/

Oops…

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 FoggIMG_0555aIMG_0553aIMG_0538aBumble and Squeak 1 002aBumble and Squeak 1 002a (2)

 

 

Too Late for One…

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.

New Pieces

I just added three new pieces to my Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAutumnlands?), with a new color piece coming on the 31st of this month, at the EHAG Emporium (http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/). These pieces are smaller and simpler, making them more affordable for those looking for some spooky art without the usual fine art price tag. This will be an ongoing series, so be sure to check back for more updates.Autumn 2 cb 001Autumn 4 cb 001autumn 1 cb 001

Update

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 . Halloween Frolics

Distractions, Distractions…

Work demands have kept me away for several months, for the most part, and as a result I’ve missed making several posts. There was no EHAG Emporium in December, so here is the piece I premiered in the January show.  As always, the original is available at https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAutumnlands , and prints are available at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html .Sunset with Oliver redux 001 (3)

Auguste Clown Gallery

LOGO_AUGCLOWNHalloween is almost upon us, and with it, the Auguste Clown Gallery’s International Art Show. Judging from past shows, as well as the list of contributors, the exhibition promises to be no less than astounding. Anyone who can possibly attend should do their utmost to do so. Visit http://www.augusteclown.com/ for glimpses of previous exhibitions. IMG_0243 (2)IMG_0253 (2)

Upcoming Gallery Show

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/ .
