UFO Festival Pics

As promised, here are some pics from the Pine Bush UFO Festival this past weekend. We didn't make it to the car show or the chili cook-off,  just the Bizarre Art show and the parade.

I want this car!

Don't drink and fly?

Janet wants this car! (I'm sure it's for her husband.. not)

And who was the leader of the parade? Our own Dino Mavros, owner of the Cup & Saucer Classic Diner

I hear there have been sightings of Seth Apter here..  ;o)

 Fun was had by all.. we never saw so many people in town at one time! Maybe next year you'll come and join us for an encounter

Bizarre Art Contest and UFO Festival

I've mentioned before how Pine Bush, N.Y. is considered the UFO Capital and last year they held their first UFO Festival complete with parade. This year in conjunction with the festival the Pine Bush Area Arts Council had a call to artists for a 'Bizarre Art' show. My first thought was how much fun it would be to sculpt an alien, which I did, only to find out later that they couldn't take 3-D pieces. BUT... I also did a painting and honestly I can't remember if I called it 'Sighting' or 'Encounter' but either way... I won! I won the contest for Bizarre Art!
 Saturday, April 28th will be numerous lectures about sightings and abductions etc. along with the parade in the afternoon. Then Sunday there will be a cook-off and car show, then the reception and presentation for the Bizarre Art contest. I will take some pics and post them later on so you can all see what our local aliens look like. ;o)

Have a great weekend!

She's STEAMPUNK and she's NEW!

I must say it's good to be back in the driver's seat in front of my computer, once again creating a graphic original... and what could be better than another Steampunk piece?! I actually created this for a museum in the UK as a backdrop and now I'm offering it as a print in my Etsy store. So pop on over and have a look at my newest edition called "Special Delivery".

  Hope you like her! :o)

Ellenville, NY Reception for Seth Apter - The Pulse of Mixed Media

Last Monday night was the opening reception for Seth at the Ellenville Gallery Link for his artwork as well as talk and book signing.

 As promised, here are some pictures from the reception:
This first group is from Seth's 'Passages' series. I walked around the corner to see these and it took my breath away. The pictures (of course) don't do them justice. Each and every piece told a story and with the finesse and artful eye of Seth style.

 There was good food and lots of good conversation. Everyone was very impressed with his work and doubly pleased to meet Seth in person.

Lots of good conversation

Everyone enjoying the exhibit... the press too!

Seth giving his talk about 'The Pulse of Mixed Media'

A book signing...
More conversation with internet friends..

And still more book signing..
And here are a few examples of Seth's series called 'Interior Angles'

 You really have to see these in person to appreciate all the interesting texture and perfection of design. Rumor has it that Seth will be teaching this technique at Art Is You in Stamford Ct. this coming October. Sign up now... I'm sure his class will fill up quickly!

To hear all the latest on his book tour, podcasts etc. visit Seth's blog, The Altered Page.

Congratulations Seth!
