Artist OBLVN's Studio Featured in Studio Gold Zine

The first time we saw OBLVN's work in person was at Klughaus Gallery in NYC back in 2012 at his 100 Paintings show. After that, we were thrilled to bring him on board for group exhibits at myplasticheart. His work was featured in our latest mph exhibit, Studio Gold, and you'll find images from his studio space in our zine by the same name. The Studio Gold zine will be available for purchase shortly in Evoker's web shop

Molly Bosley

Location: Charlotte, VT
Space: Molly Bosley's Studio
July 2016

Our latest studio visit found us cruising in the summer heat listening to Arcade Fire as we traveled north to Vermont for a long weekend. Charlotte (pronounced Shar-Lot) is about a 20 minute drive to the city of Burlington, and where we found ourselves painted in the perfect picture of country-side living. Waterfalls, meandering paths, rocky lake shores, open fields, farm land, and more stars than we've ever seen in the night sky - this is the backdrop to Molly Bosley's studio space - an eclectic and visually stimulating landscape that inspires the artistic life of this phenomenal artist.

Being friends with Molly for several years now, we've watched her work develop, and her artistic endeavors expand, as well as the size of her gorgeous and intricate papercuts, which now often sprawl halfway across a wall. On any given day, you'll find Molly working in her home studio on various artistic endeavors, including her papercuts, collages, layered illustrations, embroidery, jewelry, and vintage clothing brand. She also creates functional pottery pieces, like bowls, planters, and mugs in a local ceramics studio. The best part of all is that not only does she do all of these things - she does all of these things well, injecting her wit and eye for beauty into each piece. Molly's work often references history and vintage imagery, inducing a nostalgia and eeriness all in one work, something you can't help but admire and be intrigued by. You'll see this especially in her collages, illustrations, and papercuts.

Molly's work has exhibited across the USA. In January 2017, she will be showcasing her artwork at the Metro Gallery at Burlington City Arts in VT. You can find Molly's vintage clothing line and her pottery for purchase at Found and Feral. Her handmade jewelry is available for sale at Found and Feral Handmade.

Studio Gold Recap

Studio Gold has officially opened! We reveled in the amazing artwork of this exhibit with friends, participating artists, and art fans at myplasticheart on Friday, April 16 at the opening reception in NYC. For this exhibit, we loosened up the theme, asking artists to create anything as long as it encompasses a 12" x 12" space, and they all stepped up with solid work across the board. Artwork is available for sale on the mph website and in the gallery at 210 Forsyth St. in NYC. Evoker and mph are also selling the Studio Gold zine, which features most of the artists' studio spaces. The exhibit runs through May 14, so there is still plenty of time to view it in person.

Studio Gold Opens at myplasticheart on April 16


The Studio Miners’ fifth annual exhibit, Studio Gold, opening at myplasticheart on April 16, 2016 features work by over 25 artists from across the country and overseas. The exhibit hearkens back to the roots of the curating duo’s mission – to document the wonderfully exciting world of artists, collectors and creatives of all kinds. For this exhibit, artists were free to create any work, as opposed to following a theme as in previous years, as long as the artwork embodies a 12″ x 12″ space.

In conjunction with the exhibition, a zine of the same name will be released in a limited run at the opening. The zine will give a glimpse at the spaces, collections, and objects artists surround themselves with, offering a look into the every day inspiration and processes of the participating artists.

Featuring the artwork of :
Angry Woebots, Chris Austin, Maret Bondorew, Betso, Brian Butler, Bwana Spoons, Dave the Chimp, Chris RWK, Chula, Mathew Curran, Evoker, Flying Fortress, Ekiem, Kev Grey, Mike Guerrero, Michael C. Hsiung, Aya Kakeda, KaNo, Peter Kato, PhiIip Lumbang, MCA, OBLVN, Podgy Panda, Lou Pimentel, Clams Rockefeller, Smut Villain, Tougui, Mr. Walters

Thrashin' Exhibit Opening Recap

This past Saturday, April 11, marked our fourth annul show at myplasticheart and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results! A huge thank you goes out to the gallery, all of the participating artists, and everyone who came out in support. This year, the theme is inspired by 80s skate graphics, since, in our travels, we so often run into beloved collections of old skate decks.

If you missed the opening, don't fret, the show is up in the gallery until May 9. You can also view and purchase work from the show online.
