  • “Inspired by the portraiture of Malian artist Malick Sidibé, who photographed local nightlife and youth culture in his hometown of Bamako, the campaign explores the freedom of expression found in music and dance. Set in dancehall and rich, colorful, make-shift studios, the images capture a group of men and women dancing passionately and posing for photographs. Referencing the spirit of England’s underground Northern Soul movement of the 60’s, with its distinctive, athletic dance moves and exuberant social scene, the images by Glen Luchford are dynamic, vibrant and spontaneous.” - Gucci

Trying something new this weekend!! My first curated spring market in Edmonton!

This time I’m only going to be selling original, traditionally drawn/painted content. It’s a scary step, since fan art + parody stuff always does so much better, but I’m going for it!! 

Hope to see you there this weekend! 
Open Saturday + Sunday 10am-4pm @ Prince of Wales Armoury

Happy Birthday Salvador Dali!

Since 1924 the Print Club of Cleveland has issued an annual presentation print exclusively for its membership. Artists are invited to create a work in the printmaking technique of their choosing. In 1945 Salvador Dali was asked to create an etching for the club’s 1946 publication. Admiring his recent work, The Sleeping Nautilus, made for the Steuben Glass Company, the artist was asked to submit drawings based on mythological themes. Dali’s first drawing, Rapt d’Afrique, was rejected as being too sensational. Henry Sayles Francis, Curator of Prints and Drawings and Print Club secretary, sent a plaintive letter to Mrs. Dali requesting the artist consider a different subject. Dali replied with St. George and the Dragon which was enthusiastically accepted.

Approval of the drawing was the beginning of a lengthy saga that resulted in the delay of the publication until 1947. The contract with Dali included $500 for his work and provided him with the copper printing plate to create his etching. A plate was purchased but arrived at the museum scratched. Efforts to repair it ruined it instead and another plate had to be procured. In March 1946 the plate was shipped to the artist in California where it languished in a crate while the artist completed a contract with Walt Disney. In November Henry Sayles Francis received a letter from Mrs. Dali requesting the assistance of a specialist who could help in creating the etching. Mr. Francis scrambled to find a collaborator in New York, where Dali was now located, but to no avail. In a desperate attempt to complete the etching he even suggested shipping the plate and drawing back to the museum where a “competent etcher” on staff could complete the work.

As it turned out, Dali was asking only for the use of a studio in which to etch the plate. In January 1947 Print Club member Charles E. Roseman, Jr. made arrangements with Stanley William Hayter for the use of Atelier 17. By the end of March proofs were ready for approval by the Print Club. 260 impressions and three trial prints were sent to Dali for his signature in June along with payment for his services.

St. George and the Dragon was announced to the public and featured in an exhibition of 65 works by the artist in October 1947.
