October 7 -9, 2011 at Southern California’s Architectural Masterpiece the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa
Baby Tattooville is an annual art retreat where you get to hang out with artists for the weekend. They are there just chilling out and creating art. BT 2011 will feature a "Best of" line up of the past 4 years artists, with special guests. It is pretty spendy at $2500 for the weekend, but includes hotel and some food. You also usually get something from each of the artists, including original art, exclusive prints, toys, sketches, etc. Past artists include: James Jean, Ron English, Robert Williams, Tim Biskup, Coop, Van Arno, Jeff Soto, Audrey Kawasaki, Craola, Luke Chueh, Thomas Han. Basically a who's who of the "pop surrealist" contemporary art scene or whatever you want to call it. Sign up now as there is only 17 spots left!!!!!
Coop, Luke Chueh, Travis Louie, Bob Dob, James Gurney, KMNDZ, Buff Monster, Tara McPherson, Van Arno, Miss Mindy, Brandi Milne, KRK Ryden, Johnny Ryan, Elizabeth McGrath, Gris Grimly, Anthony Ausgang, Amy Sol
This one is the 5 year celebration where all of the artists are supposed to be attendees from previous years...probably more still to be announced.
Riverside Art Museum was open for the Riverside Arts Walk last night and Bob Self was there to answer questions about the art on display and Baby Tattooville as an event (Jeff Soto wasn't able to make it). The collection of work really is a who's who for this amazing art movement (insert whichever label you prefer).
There will be a public reception Saturday night and close to 30 artists are supposed to be there.
For those of you lucky enough to have tickets for the full experience, I am jealous yet excited for you. It sounds like it will be a great time.
Here are just a few pics, sorry for the image quality.
Great artists included in the Riverside Art Museum show tonight if you can make it out. Most works will be old, lent from various collections, but an amazing list. Take a look at the names on the specially designed exhibition poster from Ragnar to get an idea.
