Hey everybody, we’ve got a week filled with great releases, and an exciting double gallery show to cap it all off!
First, we’d like to thank all of the utterly dedicated David Welker fans who braved the heat and humidity and came out to the Welker Studios Open House show last Friday. It was a tremendous show, and as always, we’re absolutely grateful to all of David’s fans for being so fun and delightful. A special thank you to David for allowing us to host the event, and for going above and beyond by signing, doodling, and chatting the hours away with everybody!
We kept a small reserve of some of the new prints available from David’s Open House for those of you who couldn’t attend the show, and as a treat, we’re releasing the screen print version of David’s beautifully detailed Sunset Bus exclusively online. Sunset Bus is a critter-filled crawl through David’s wonderful imagination, and is absolutely packed with intricate and fun details.
In addition, we’re proud to officially announce that this Saturday (7/29) from 11AM to 3PM, we will be hosting a massive double gallery show for artists Jim Pollock and Mark Chilcott. Admission is free and we’ll be hosting both of the events at our Gallery, located at 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY.
Jim Pollock’s Year of the Rooster Meet and Greet will feature a smattering of both old and new prints! We’ve been planning this with Jim for a while, and we’re astoundingly happy to be able to have Jim at the event!
Mark Chilcott’s solo showcase, Ride On!, is a fun event featuring 50 of Mark’s recent originals that contain pop culture characters and their iconic vehicles. You can purchase an original, and then pick it up at the end of the day. We will also have an online print release featuring art from the show, so stay tuned for more details on that towards the end of the week.
Finally, if you're attending one of the Phish’s shows during this epic run of concerts, be sure to pick up Jim Pollock’s Baker’s Dozen pewter statue. It was an honor working with Phish, Jim, Jeni, and Paul Harding on this project, and we could not be more happy with the results. Check it out:
All of David Welker’s prints will be available for purchase Tuesday (7/25) @ 12PM ET on our homepage, Bottleneckgallery.com! We will also have a very limited number of sets of all four of David's prints available. Please note these are not matching numbered sets.
