Missed It -- "Free to a Good Home 2: Dogs!"
This is a good show for a good cause. I have one piece in it. It's already sold and it looks like this:
I missed the opening. If you did too, you can still catch this piece in person along with plenty of other adorable dog related works at GR2 in LA through June 10th.
LAAS will also be accepting donations of supplies and food for the shelter. (Suggested donations: blankets, towels, unopened pet food, pet beds, pet coats, Timothy Hay, kongs.) Those making donations through the duration of the show will receive a coupon for 25 percent off their next purchase at GR2.
Ryohei Tanaka's Killer Cuts at Secret Headquarters, LA
The Secret Headquarters comic book shop in the Silver Lake neighborhood of LA is showing and selling some of Ryohei's latest paper cutout art, including some amazing takes on super heroes and villians. All the available pieces can be viewed here.
The show is up through early June.
This comes right on the heels of Ryohei's smash success at Scion's great "Papershapers" show (flickr Gallery, Scion Gallery) and right in the thick of his showing at the excellent Cullom Galleryin Seattle. All of it is well worth a look.
