Scott and the Nope Tank-O-Lantern.

  Quickly - I am sorry it has been over a year since I blogged. I am sill on the internet but without a 365 project I let the blog fall by the wayside. Hopefully I will pick it back up and I will leave links to all my new stuff at the end of this.


  So we are getting into the Fourth season of Scott and I creating Tank-O-Lanterns Our skills have improved vastly and it is something we really look forward to. Every year I grab a pile of tanks and just start designing whatever comes to mind. Every year there is one tank that I design that Scott looks at and says nope, not doing it.
  The very first year we did this I took inspiration from a painting in Tim White's Chiaroscuro of this vine made out of anthropomorphic beings. People vines. This would be the first nope tank. In a way it made me sad, I put it back in my studio in the corner and would look at it sometimes. It took a minute to really be able to fully understand what his limitations were cutting wise for me to be able to better design for.
  This year as I am gathering blanks I look back at the people vines tank and think to myself - want. I grab it. I decide to rework the lines into something less rigid hoping maybe this would be easier to cut and I bring it out to him. I get the oh god she is bringing me that thing glance of disapproval. I say I know, I know but just think about trying. He agreed. Today he cut the tank. Should I be this excited? I dunno but it has bee a few years that I have been waiting to see what kind of shadows it would cast.


























I Love it!
Tanks that are currently available for purchase can be found in out Artifre shop.

We also started a taco cult http://www.taconati.org/

Open mail call updated info.

*UPDATE*
So we have heard that some people are having issues with mail being returned. We have no idea why this is happening.
If for some reason your mail was bounced back please resend it to 216 yucca drive nw, alb, n.m. 87105
We own a triplex, we live in one, rent one and the 3rd is the gallery so it makes no sense that 2 of the three adresses have no mail issies. Even if it arrives late we will post and hang everything we get. Sorry for the inconvenience while we figure out what is up with our mail.

  This is the Gallery at Yucca Flats first mail art show. I was introduced to mail art just a few years back and marveled at the things that arrived from all over the world. This show will be a great way for me to locally introduce many people to correspondence art.

 The details, preferably send a postcard sized pice. Meaning around 4.5 x 6. Limit of 3. Open theme, all art is welcome. Everything that comes in will be photographed at catalogged here on my blog. The day after the show I will add a series of photos here from the opening.

 Opening weekend I will have craft tables setp so people can make their own mail art and sent it to someone whose work they like from what is hanging to help get them into the act of sharing mail art.
This is a free show, nothing will be for sale. It is for everyone to play, hang a piece in a gallery and network.


















I hope to be seeing you in the mail box!
