Chris Ryniak’s Nuggleworts are Here!


Following months of WIPs and teasers, we finally have a good look at Chris Ryniak’s Nuggleworts for Circus Annual, opening this Friday at Stranger Factory. From left to right, say hello to THISTLEWORT, DEADSTONEWORT and SHALLOWORT. Each colorway is an edition of TWO, so expect SIX of these little dudes to be scampering around the gallery. The Nuggles stand 6 inches and all are cast, cleaned, painted and loved by Chris. You’d expect them to look a little happier … separation anxiety, perhaps?

Circus Annual opens THIS FRIDAY! (Dec. 7) with a reception from 6-9pm. ABQ friends, you get first crack at the goods! Online collectors, expect the preview to hit your inbox this weekend. We’ll start taking email requests on Monday, Dec. 10th at Noon PST.

Chris Ryniak’s Trio of Nuggleworts for ‘Septenary’ @ OhNo!Doom 7.7

Ohhh boy, here comes trouble.

Chris Ryniak’s contribution for OhNo!Doom’s group sculpture show, Septenary, is a trio of buck toofed critters called Nuggleworts. Each of the 6-inch sculpts are one-of-a-kind, made with CMR lovin’ and are never to be seen like this again. And, believe it or not, the Nuggleworts (from left: Valencia, Juneau and Mangrove) are one of the rare CMR breeds that are devoid of the usual, well-endowed cheekage in the rear region (figured we’d share).

Septenary opens July 7th and runs through August 4th. The show preview has already gone out and these three are spoken for (sorry), but you can still pay ’em a visit if you find yourself in Chi-Town!
