Welcome to Gesine's Count down to Christmas! This is Bingo.
This is turning into a tradition with the 3rd year of getting ready for Christmas with me. For every day between December 1st and December 24th I will open another door on my advent calendar.
While I was asleep, these adoarble folks held a tiny art opening for me in Berlin at http://www.greenpeek.ga/ Grünes Guckfenster_Green Peekport. Makes me all giggly with pleasure. I am the first artist featured in this small hidden gallery on the fence of my friends' garden plot.
I don't even know why I love these guys so much. Danglers make me happy
A few more moments from the big Cardboard Castle Fest last month. I'm already feeling nostalgic for summer and all the fun we had. Perhaps there will be another one next year?
They are just piling up around here.
In August we hosted a week-long cardboard castle building party in our back yard. It was even more fun than we had imagined. Walls and towers were built. Children ceaselessly tunneled through all of the constructions.
The best thing about it was watching people find and create their very own cardboard dreams. There were cardboard costumes, cardboard instruments, a cardboard sun dial, a cardboard mail box, a cardboard letter press, a cardboard telephone booth that was also a throne (telethrone) and so much more.
Chris Haberman is single-handedly making Milwaukie, Oregon cool. The Little by Little show follows the format of other shows curated by Chris: different artists create 8"x8" panels that sell for the insanely cheap price of $ 40 straight off the wall. Several different locations in charming downtown Milwaukie. Matt and Morty (above) will be cheerfully attending.
The kids at the Children's Museum and I made so many fantastic monsters. It was very hard to choose, but here are some of my favorites.
