Brandt Peters and Kathie Olivas were on set this past weekend of their first stop motion short film, Calliope. As you can see the stage is literally set for the filming of this soon to be epic film! We still don’t know too much about the plot or anything yet, but we have a hunch that all will be revealed very soon.

Take a look at some behind the scenes images of Calliope!

The sea creatures are stirring, and the waves are rolling in for Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd’sSafe Harbor“.  We have been catch and releasing all kinds of progress images for the show on social media, but look no further now – because we have them packaged like sardines in one blog post for you.

You can see all manner of sea beasts from mermaids and sharks to crabs and dudes we can’t even describe properly in their most early stages. Go ahead and start drooling on some of these.

Safe Harbor

Chris Ryniak & Amanda Louise Spayd

From the edge of the boardwalk to the bottom of the sea,
adventure awaits!

Ohio artists Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd are back with another collaborative exhibit, “Safe Harbor”. Moving away from their usual land-locked world, the artists breathe new life into the creatures who make their homes both above and below the boardwalk.

The artists have collaborated on some of their most ambitious new works yet, both stepping out of their comfort zone to tackle an entirely new breed of their well-loved creations. They’ve envisioned a world revolving around a dilapidated old wharf, worn by time and salt, inhabited by creatures both new and familiar.

This fresh and unexplored world has led both artists to craft bold, new creations; some of Spayd’s original Dust Bunnies have grown fins, adorning themselves with shells, crab claws, and fishhooks, while “Safe Harbor” will also reveal plenty of fresh, sea-dwelling additions to Ryniak’s usual roster of meticulously sculpted characters.

This is the fourth large-scale collaboration by Chris and Amanda, and as they continue to share ideas and inspire each other, their creations have found themselves cohabiting the rotting planks and watery depths of their own crumbling coastal paradise.

Join us at Stranger Factory as we drop anchor and spend some time with this fantastic new family of creatures from two of our most popular artists.

The opening reception is Friday, April 10th from 6 – 9 pm at Stranger Factory. Both artists will be in attendance.
