It's Official....

A.Okay Official! 

Here is the good news straight from the horse's mouth:

"On the gallery side of things, we would also like to introduce to you our newly appointed in-house curators, Lana Crooks and Max Bare. They are currently in the process of putting together a rockstar list of gallery events for next years calendar so we're super excited! Once we get that list finalized, you will definitely be in the know.

If you are interested in joining any group shows or are interested in participating in a solo show, please email to get in contact with them. They will also assist in bringing your pieces into the shop for consignment. Here's a short and sweet bio of the two:

Lana Crooks is the owner and mastermind behind Crookedart LLC, a company based around freelance illustration, costumes/set design for film and TV and retail environments, visuals and displays. She is also a full time plushinator; making hand-made and one-of-a-kind monstrosities. Her work has been seen at Get Knifed Gallery, A.Okay Official, DVA, Rotofugi, and Gallery 1988 to name a few.

Max Bare is a commercial artist with fine artist's sensibilities, midwestern roots and ambitions for urban and global conquest. Max has operated Get Knifed, a gallery formerly of East Pilsen's Chicago Arts District for two years, which is now a traveling art collective. Max spends his creative energies as an exhibiting artist and curator, a freelance illustrator, a vintage poster conservation artist, and chief artist of an upcoming mystery/children's comic book."

Max and I are currently finishing up our Calendar but are still gathering contact info for very large group shows. So please do email us if you would like to be part of the fun. (Mr. Roytman, I will tell you all about the shows when you get here. One is right up your alley). Can't wait!

That is all for now. I am in the process of sending out PR for my solo show in November and sewing sewing and more sewing is in the very near future.
