The OUTER LIMITS gallery tour comes to Stranger Factory this August
with Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters!
Internationally recognized fine artists and toy designers Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters launched their highly anticipated OUTER LIMITS gallery tour earlier this Summer of 2016 across three cities from the “mile high” city of Denver, Colorado (Sally Centigrade Gallery)… to Old Route 66 in New Mexico (Stranger Factory Gallery), to across the pacific ocean to the capital city of Manila, Philippines (Secret Fresh).
Stranger Factory is pleased to host the second stop for their OUTER LIMITS TOUR at their flag-ship gallery in Albuquerque, NM. Outer Limits opens On August 5th with an opening reception with the artists from 6-9 PM (both artists in attendance).
Outer Limits presents the most recent collaborations and individual new works from this artist couple. Often known for their hand made art toys and limited edition vinyl figures, both Peters and Olivas have also spent the last 20 years developing their careers as narrative painters. This current series of work is inspired by cosmic travelers, psychic healers, futuristic utopias, and a potential zombie apocalypse.
About the Artists:
Kathie Olivas is an internationally exhibited multi-media artist from New Mexico. Through her current body of work she explores society’s insatiable desire to assign ‘cuteness’ and our discomfort with the unknown. A dark blend of early American portraiture set in post apocalyptic times, her paintings and hand-made art toys are a satirical look at how fear affects our sense of reality.
Brandt Peters is an award winning internationally recognized and accomplished visual artist, designer, story developer (animation-film), illustrator, character and toy designer. His work hearkens back to the earliest days of comics and animation, with a seeming simplicity that hides layers of intricate back story. His humor and unerring sense of composition, combined with a strong narrative thread that has consistently woven through all his work for the past decade, has made him a favorite of art and toy collectors the world over.
The show will run August 5 – 28th.
Opening Reception on August 5th (6-9 PM)
3411 Central Avenue NE
Albuquerque, NM 87106
“Greetings from the other Side” is a group exhibition featuring 13 artists whose work explores the unexplained. Inspired by their fascination of divination, American spiritualism, and/ or the great unknown, featured artists will be showcasing works based in the manifestation of often otherworldly ideas and visions.
Artists Jeremy Cross, Peter Hague, Kathie Olivas, and Brandt Peters will all be in attendance for the opening reception on July 1st, from 6-9pm.
