I knew I wanted to stop by when I heard about this pop-up Art show, Fleeting Immersion, on the Haystack Needle last week.
The utterly creative show hosted by Janet Varney and Jessica Mackinson is a collaboration of many artists challenged to design for the theme “Sante Fe Astronaut”! You can see Jessica above standing next to her custom tepee! I just loved the neon green pom-pom trim. Also, If you take a closer look at the picture you will notice her incredible t-shirt by Erhart with a southwestern style fabric pocket and shoulder tabs! I totally want one.
The show runs from September 18-25th for those of you in the Greater L.A. area lucky enough to be able to check it out! For those of you living abroad here’s a glimpse into the life of Astronaut Art melded with Sante Fe style.
One of the many things I liked about this show were the clever little vignettes installed by the curators. Just look at those moon shoes and orange astronaut suit! This table lamp made by Janet Varney diffuses the light perfectly.
There was artwork ranging in scale from micro to macro; as the tiny the owl in an intergalactic environment at left was one of a series of tiny paintings. The playful juxtaposition of the futuristic astronaut done in vintage needlepoint made me smile.
The t-shirts looked so fresh in neon colors, I’m so happy that neon pink is having it’s moment right now!
I also scored some new graphic yoga pants done in bright pink and lavender;) because that is just what I needed to add to my collection on this Saturday afternoon.
The space astronaut oval painting is a must-see-in-person type of painting, although I hope you can tell the amazingness of it by the picture. Over at Jenn’s web site you can see her collage style graphics intermingled with paintings.
Lastly, these snow globes of wolves howling on crystal terrain grabbed my attention. Wouldn’t these be cool as gifts?
Next weekend, you can bid the show farewell in Hollywood at the closing party September 25th from 5-7 p.m!
Hope you all had a fab weekend!
