It was almost 3 years ago when Ken Harman‘s Spoke Art first burst onto the art scene, curating and hosting the wildly successful Wes Anderson-themed exhibit, Bad Dads.  That group show has remained a huge annual event, but the gallery has continued to demonstrate an impressive output of both group and solo exhibits, themed or otherwise.  Until locking down their permanent gallery space in San Francisco, Spoke Art was originally/temporarily promoted as a “transient gallery and publishing house,” presenting their shows in different locations.  Over time they’ve returned to their nomadic roots on occasion, throwing a handful of pop up exhibits in various locations.  The first of such shows came 2 years ago with the first round of their “Quentin vs. Coen – An art show tribute to the films of Tarantino and the Brothers” exhibits being hosted with a single weekend run at the Bold Hype gallery in New York.  This weekend Spoke Art returns to the Bold Hype for another weekend exhibit; this time paying tribute to yet another legendary, critically acclaimed American filmmaker: Martin Scorsese.

For Scorsese : an art show tributeover 70 artists from around the world have created new and original works of art in honor of Mr. Scorsese in an eclectic showing of over one hundred paintings, sculptures and screen prints.”  An the list of artists is an impressive one that includes such previous Monster Fresh interviewees/favorites as Serge Gay Jr and Dave MacDowell.

Full List of Participating Artists:
Aaron Jasinski, Adam Maida, Akira Beard, Alex Pearson, Alexander Iaccarino, Andrew Spear, Beau Stanton, Bethany Marchman, Brian Ewing, Brian Methe, Casey Weldon, Chuck Sperry, Dave MacDowell, Dave Perillo, David Moscati, Derek Gores, Derek Weisberg, Epyon5, Erik Jones, Fernando Reza, Gabz, Geoff Trapp, Greg Gossel, Hydro74, Ibraheem Youssef, Isaac Bidwell, James Gilleard, Jayson Weidel, Jessica Deahl, Joel Daniel Phillips, Johannah O’Donnell, JoKa, Jon Smith, Jonathan Bergeron, Joshua Budich, Justin VanGenderen, Kevin Jay Stanton, Kristopher Joesel, Lucien Shapiro, Matt Needle, Matt Taylor, Meghan Stratman, Melissa Ling, Michelle Coffee, Monkey Ink Design, NC Winters, New Flesh, Nick Comparone, Oliver Barrett, Paul Shipper, Peter Adamyan, Rafael Santiago, Rhys Cooper, Rich Pellegrino, Sam Gilbey, Sam Ho, Sam Smith, Sandi Calistro, Scott C, Scott Weatherwax, Serge Gay Jr., Steve Daily, Steve Hughes, Tessa Morrison, Toobs, Tracie Ching, Ty Mattson, William Arvin, Zach Landrum, Zeb Love

This should be a solid showing, yielding some impressive contributions, and we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, but I do want to point out that when the Quentin VS Coen exhibit was debuted at the Bold Hype, it was later followed up by a second and third round in San Francisco and Los Angeles, respectfully.  Hopefully, there will be even more to come in the future.

Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it's hard to recall all of the details. "I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn't actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room... but it wasn't actually here... it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle."
