ANOTHER incredible poster advertising September 3rd's "3G" art exhibit, this time by Brandon Schaefer.

This show just keeps outdoing itself. Truth is, the prints from this show are very limited, and we expect a large crowd, so we're encouraging people who want to buy limited edition prints from the show to arrive early. But more on that later.

Don't cross the streams.

This happened

Thanks to our friends at the Turner Classic Movies Blog - Gremlins director Joe Dante said this about our art show -

"It’s amazing to me that 25 years after the fact, Gremlins is still inspiring (if that’s the word) people to comment on it. I guess there was something about the mid-80s, or maybe it’s just cyclical. We were invoking the 50s then, today it’s the 80s. Go figure."

I mean, that's unreal.

Another promotional poster for "3G," opening September 3rd, this time by Jorsh Pena.

It's just around the corner!!!!!!!!


Monday, August 23, 2010


It's coming ya'll! The joint show between G1988 and The Autumn Society, "3G," is right around the corner. The show which will feature artwork inspired by Goonies, Ghostbusters and Gremlins will open on September 3rd, with an opening reception from 7-10 PM. Scheduled to appear is an exact working replica of Ecto-1 (by working I mean it will bust ghosts) and an original Ghostbuster (in uniform!!!!). You do not want to miss that. And our friends at Mattel are going to be bringing over their brand new Ghostbuster action figures that are really cool.

But the main attraction is easily the art. The work we've seen so far is astounding. Wanted to wake up a little early this Monday and show you what we got...

A different take on our favorite paranormal fights by German Orozco.

Jorsh Pena takes to the poster to sell you what is obviously a great holiday present (both the poster and the Mogwai!)

Drew Flachetta summons Chester Copperpot.

Loving this Gremlins piece by Alberto Cerriteno. His pieces for Ghostbusters and Goonies are super impressive too!

Erick Braddock's piece is awesome.

A G1988 favorite, Jude Buffum, outdid himself. Re-imagining these movies as video games, here's Gremlins. Wait till you see the other two. Game over.

Andy Ristaino shows that down here it's their time.

DON'T MISS THIS SHOW. Let's welcome the Autumn Society with open arms. We won't be eating after midnight.

Still Crazy

First up, wanted to thank artist Daniel Danger and everyone who came by the opening last Thursday night, making it one of our most successful solo shows of all time. Daniel is a truly amazing artist, and good dude, and we couldn't be happier to showing him. If you haven't made it down to the gallery yet, you have till August 27th. If you live outside of LA, #1 you're missing some great weather, but #2 you can CLICK HERE to see the show in all its glory.

Also, we wanted to send a shout-out and thanks to our friends at Electric Playground for this feature they ran about Crazy 4 Cult 4. LOVE having them come to openings!

And I think you'll be seeing EP back at the gallery in September. And probably you. Official postcard below:

And that's one to grow on.

Danger Zone (kinda obvious blog post title)

The day before Daniel Danger's solo show "they will take it back," and the gallery is looking beautiful. Daniel really outdid himself for his California solo show. We have been getting emails and phone calls non-stop about his new prints THERE ARE 6 NEW PRINTS BEING RELEASED (not counting the insanely detailed toy and print combo). Yes, THAT MANY prints.

Here's a peak at 3 more:

You'll have to wait for details and such, but just showing you enough to make you bang your head in the Expresso Beans forum.

So, the FIRST CHANCE you will have to buy the prints, even if you are on the preview list, will be at the opening reception, which is Thursday night from 7-10 PM. We will start a line at 5 PM, come early because we are expecting quite the line.
