Winter Salon IV & John Paul Gutierrez

December brings a new solo exhibit, as well as our yearly winter group show!

December 2014 brings us two new exhibits….a solo exhibit of new work by John Paul Gutierrez, and our yearly Winter Salon group exhibit!

The Winter Salon is our yearly group exhibit featuring members of the Circus Posterus collective, as well as like-minded friends and family. This group exhibit is an end-of-year holiday party for Circus Posterus and Stranger Factory, and a chance for our family of artists and contributors to all come together for a great exhibit and celebrate another year of creating incredible artwork and limited edition releases under the Circus Posterus banner. This year’s participating artists include Brandt Peters, Kathie Olivas, Chris Ryniak, Amanda Louise Spayd, Lana Crooks, Cassia Harries and more.

John Paul Guiterrez’s new solo exhibition, “Creatures of Growth”, brings this local Albuquerque talent to Stranger Factory for his first solo exhibition. His drawings and acrylic paintings create a surreal world where flora and fauna are sometimes indistinguishable from one another; sometimes as one, co-existing as distortions in a phantom reality. Guiterrez transports you into his dream-like landscape that is familiar enough to draw you in but strange enough that you cannot look away until you’ve decoded every dense layer of symbolism and iconography. Best described as “naturalist meets surrealist”, Stranger Factory is excited to bring you new works from this incredible talent.

Both exhibits run December 4th – 28th, with an opening reception on Thursday, December 4th from 6 – 9 PM to coincide with the local Albuquerque Shop and Stroll events! Some artists will be in attendance.

We’re back from DesignerCon, and right back to work! Thank you to everyone who came out and said hello, bought our work, or came to a signing. We are happy and grateful to call you our collectors, because you are the best people in the world.

We’re previewed these figures at DesignerCon, and now we finally have the rest of our inventory in stock! Both figures are $95 each, or buy the set for the price of $175. Like the others, the heads switch out!
