JOE LEDBETTER & ALEX MEYER SOLO SHOWS

JED - show image
m modern proudly presents
SUPERSTITOUS
a solo show of Original Artwork by JOE LEDBETTER
& A STRANGE AND LUSTY HEART a solo show of Original Paintings by ALEX MEYER this
Saturday, September 30th, 7-10 pm
Hello Everyone,

Please join us for two solo exhibitions that open this weekend featuring SUPERSTITIOUS a solo show of original works by JOE LEDBETTER and A STRANGE AND LUSTY HEART a solo show of original works by ALEX MEYER. Both artist receptions to be held this Saturday, September 30th , from 7- 10 pm . Don't miss this opportunity to meet both JOE LEDBETTER & ALEX MEYER in person.

***

IF you haven't heard of JOE LEDBETTER in the past year or two, then you are either hiding under a rock, not familiar with the L.A. Art Scene or perhaps just need a more formal introduction.

Joe's numberous SOLD OUT shows have people from all over the world scrambling to get the opportunity to own one of his fun, playful and extremely well excuted paintings. SUPERSTITOUS is his most abitious show to date (according to Joe himself) and is inspired by MYTH, LEGEND and FANTASY. JOE's multiple characters have been taking the toy world by storm and, judging from current EBAY prices, selling out much faster than they can be produced. The real treasures though are his much coveted original paintings. We can't guaranty you will be able to obtain a painting from the SUPERSTITIOUS exhibition, however, if you email us fast at nailor@earthlink.net you may be one of the lucky ones to eventually hang one of these on your walls.

NOTE: We are hoping to receive a preview from JOE in the next day or two and will be making calls to those of you on the waiting list. We are also hoping to offer around 5 or so originals for sale at the gallery the evening of the reception for people that make the trip to Palm Springs.

Again, please email to nailor@earthlink.net or call us at 760 774-8474 to be added to the JOE LEDBETTER WAIT LIST.

***

We will be also be featuring A STRANGE AND LUSTY HEART, a solo show of tantalizing original pieces by ALEX MEYER that are given no justice in this email (sorry for the poor jpeg quality). To briefly step into the mind of ALEX MEYER all one has to do is read his biography below:

Born in 1974, the conspicuous vitality in cartoons and comic book imagery held an early fascination on the young mind of Alex Meyer. However, it wasn't until much later that he abandoned a practical career course and committed himself to art. Graduating from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver with a BFA in Illustration, he has strived to improve as a painter and illustrator.

His paintings have been shown at DC Gallery and Th'Ink Tank of Denver, and he has participated in group shows at La Luz de Jesus and m modern gallery. A mixture of cartoons, pinup, and fantasy art, his work is a product of the rigors of technique haunted by the cravings of the flesh, of proportion in conflict with depravity, of optimism coupled with irony. The aim of this petty psychologist can best be stated in the abstract: to take it to the naked edge - and, of course... beyond!

***

Our very own (OK, so what if he is a big name Hollywood DJ too!) DJ VICTOR RODRIGUEZ will be spinning the night away at the opening reception. Also, thanks to SMIRNOFF for the continued support and sponsorship of our exhibitions and look for some special Vodka cocktails being served that evening. Come to the reception to enjoy the amazing artwork, visit Palm Springs and relax with a refreshing cocktail or two (no more than that please - our attorney's had us put that last note in).

NOTE: PLEASE FIND OUR WEB SITE AT www.mmodern.com AS THE WWW.MMODERNGALLERY.COM LINK IS CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF BEING TRANSFERRED TO THE OTHER LINK.

Dr. Suess on August 26th! Ryden, Pizz and more...

Dr. Seuss
m modern proudly presents
THE CAT IS OUT OF THE HAT
a group exhibition tribute to Dr. Seuss
and the m modern premier of Authorized Dr. Seuss
prints plus the much coveted Cat in the Hat bronze

"Pear-hills of Truffula Forest" - original painting by Dan May

THE CAT IS OUT OF THE HAT

The Grinch that Stole Christmas, Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who, The Cat in The Hat and so many more. The lessons learned, the pages turned, the money we burned and for more he yearned. Many of our earliest memories of rhyming lead us back to the impeccable works of the great late Dr. Seuss (aka Theodor Seuss Geisel). One can only smile when thinking of the countless stories he produced that influenced us as children and that should continue to shape young minds for generations to come. To pay tribute to this incredible visionary we plan to LET THE CAT OUT OF THE HAT with a group art exhibition dedicated to all things Seuss. Top artists of our genre like Mark Ryden * Attaboy * Brad Burkhart * Brendan Sharkey * Brett Hess * Chris Reccardi * Dan May * Dan Quintana * Fawn Gehweiler * Greg "Craola" Simkins * Heather Watts * Jaclyn Presant * James Naccarato * Jasmine Worth * Jen Davis * Joe Ledbetter * Joe Vaux * Joey Remmers * Jophen Stein * Joshua P. Davis * Lola * Luke Chueh * Mark Covell * Naoto Hattori * Natalia Fabia * Nathan Spoor * Pizz * Sake * Sam Gambino * Sam Wellington * Stone * Thomas Han * Yumiko Kayukawa will present new original paintings for this Dr. Seuss

inspired theme.

m modern will also present the new official limited edition CAT IN THE HAT bronze sculpture from the Chase Group and unveil, for the first time at m modern, limited edition prints from The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss. These reproductions are all signed and numbered by the Dr. Seuss estate and many present the works of Dr. Seuss in a much different light than you might be accustomed to seeing. You may even have to cover your child’s eyes on occasion or explain a story that you were saving until they were a little older perhaps. These prints, on various media, are absolutely beautiful, of the utmost quality and always sell out fast. Be sure to pick one of these up if you get the opportunity and enjoy some Dr. Seuss artwork in the comfort of your own living space. These timeless images will most likely work with any type décor and will no doubt bring a smile to your face on a daily basis. So please join us for a very special evening.

Here are the particulars for the opening reception:
