ToothCultJrWarden2The opening of Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd’s “Unseen Forces” is right around the corner, and it looks like everyone is about to burst with anticipation.

We have been keeping you au courant with work in progress shots and a few full reveals, but the big day is almost here. We are trying to not spoil too much of the fun by showing everything over on the social media sites of Stranger Factory. We have to leave something for the opening! On that note, keep an eye on the Stranger Factory twitter for up to date posts of the set up and opening this weekend, but for now, gaze at a few reveals.

Something is looking very similar here!

If you have been paying attention to some of our social media sites, you may have noticed some similarities in the work of Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd for Unseen Forces.

It looks like the entire show is a collaboration in many aspects which will create an amazing cohesiveness of work. Both Chris and Amanda are working together and have similar representations in each of their work. We will show these horns as an example, and then leave it at that.
HornOk one more. Maybe we will see some clear horns with Chris too?

adventure-v3-2-2Opening tomorrow Saturday, April 12 at Clutter Magazine in Beacon, NY is a brand new show featuring Circus Posterus’ own Amanda Louise Spayd along with Kelly Denato, Melita “Miss Monster” Curphy and Lana Crooks.

Adventure Awaits
“Scout ahead and forage through the dark forests on a woodland adventure! Embark on a quest through the wilds, guided by Amanda Louise Spayd, Kelly Denato, Lana Crooks, and Miss Monster (Melita Curphy). Will you uncover mysterious creatures worthy of adding to your cabinet of curiosities or will you be taken deeper into the thickets by something else entirely? The woods do not yield its treasures easily, you must choose your own adventurous path carefully… The rewards are great and the dangers are even greater. Good luck! Choose well.”

Come on out and support Amanda and all the talented ladies!
