"Boxes of Death 3D" by Electric Coffin Recap

Congratulations to the team of Duffy and Justin Kane Elder. Partners in crime and the dynamic duo of Electric Coffin. Once again, for the third straight year, the shape of a coffin is the platform for a range of artist from the the Northwest to explore and explain their work.

Below is coffins from Augie Pagan, Luke Yates, 13Fngrs, and J.P. Farquar:

50 different artists took on this challenge, and from my point of view from this year to last year, the work keep getting better. I feel like the artists involved know that everyone is bring their "A" game. Below, from left to right, Joey Nix, Quincy Quigg, Ego.

Solace and his Softgore Coffin...

John Osgood's coffin (aka my coffin) "Icarus"...

The place was a packed house. Electric Coffin at the Piranha Shop does it again. Bring in great artists and a great crowd.

Just before I took this shot, Quincy was tearing it up on the floor. Such a tall guy, in a confined area, the kid has got skills!

And the night ended with hugs.

Be sure to catch this show before it moves on to Portland and then onto LA. Boxes of Death 3-D will be on the move and you don't want to miss out.

1st Quarter at Bherd Studios Gallery: Osgood, 4th Annual All Female Exhibit & 5 Year Anniversary

First off I (John Osgood) would like to thank everyone who came out to the show "Between The Lines". This was the second year of creating a solo show in the gallery for January. I always find it a grueling and self learning process.

Next on our bill is “Pretty, Sexy, Dirty Girly", a multimedia exhibition of all female artists addressing the topic of feminine sexuality, curated by Seattle artist, Siolo Thompson. The exhibit opens on Friday, February 10th and includes everything from pin up photographs and figurative paintings and illustrations to pieces that will challenge the viewer to look beyond the surface of the work and examine their reactions and interactions with the work and the artists. Read more about this exhibit on our website.

And to keep the ball rolling on shows that I am pumped about, in March Bherd Studios Gallery is turning 5 years old! (How time flies.) To capture this event we decided to create a book and show titled "Look Up Here", filled with artists that we have worked with throughout the 5 years. Within the last 5 years we have curated shows in our gallery, we have produced satellite events, and we have worked with numerous amounts of other groups to co-curate shows. Needless to say we have been busy and we wanted to highlight some of the artists that have been with us over those years. Without the artists we would not have had the resources to keeping pushing the envelope and show the world what we have here in the great Northwest.

So mark your calendars. February 10th "Pretty, Sexy, Dirty Girlie" and March 9th "Look Up Here" Bherd Studios 5 Year Anniversary and book release!
