The Modbo presents February’s First Friday: “Birthday Suit” by Kelly Gilleran. The opening reception is from 5:00 pm until midnight on Friday, February 1st. The show runs through Friday, February 22nd. The Modbo is located in the Arts Alley in downtown Colorado Springs at 17C E. Bijou. Find the stretch of Bijou that is between Cascade and Tejon, and go south down the alley. Street parking is available, but The Modbo recommends the lot on Cascade just north of Bijou, which is only $1 after 3 pm. The Modbo can be reached at email@example.com, themodbo.com, or 633-4240. Kelly Gilleran’s new body of work, “Birthday Suit” focuses on vintage inspired food and pin-ups. She is heavily influenced by mid-century advertising illustrations, and her work seeks to revitalize forgotten imagery with deep reverence for traditional media practice and techniques. Both vibrant and humorous, her work plays with a retro-kitsch aesthetic. Gilleran is a Colorado Springs painter, focusing on traditional media illustrations adapted digitally for product and surface pattern applications. Kelly grew up in Connecticut and relocated to Colorado after receiving a BA in Art & Design with a double-concentration in painting and illustration. Gilleran has exhibited her work in Connecticut, Colorado, Massachusetts, California, New York and Melbourne, Australia, and sells online to an international audience through various Print-on-Demand websites. Kelly has recently completed various projects for Save Ferris, Ticklebelly, and Safeway.
NOW that’s what I call art
This art is a wonderful example of art from this period of art production. Some say its the best of those arts while others reserve judgement. First painted by world renowned art guy “Arty” it has since been aged like fine wine and had a fancy frame put around it to enhance its aesthetic assault on your taste.
Birds of a Feather
Put together as a tribute for the great “hair de jur” of 1890 this piece features exquisite use of water color, crayon color, and sun color, truly displaying the mastery of the artist and his wide range of talents. The authors identity remains a mystery to this day but some say it was the work of a poor farm boy in the Mississippi Delta who learned to read by way of twig bundling.
