Ryan Berkley Artist Reception Tomorrow, April 8, 5-8 PM

Hello, Bluebottle Fans! My name is Jessie Oleson, and I am the new owner of Bluebottle Art Gallery (along with my dear husband, Danny Oleson). We are having so much fun so far at the gallery, making a few changes (including a sweet mural in the back!) and preparing for a grand re-opening on May 8 as we bring in more artwork from my company, CakeSpy Shop!

And there is a lot of other exciting stuff going on. Tomorrow is our first Artist Reception, from 5-8 p.m, as part of the Capitol Hill Artwalk. We will have a totally sweet collection of paintings by Ryan Berkley of Berkley Illustration. Here are some of the paintings on show:

...and here are the details about the show!

Mother nature never looked so dapper. Ryan Berkley continues his exploration of an ancestral anthropomorphic animal world with a new collection of animals wearing their Sunday finest.

April 1 - 30, 2010
Free and open to the public.

Artist Reception:
April 8th, 5 - 8 pm

Ryan Berkley creates comic book inspired art and prints for your walls or family photo albums. Perhaps best known for his "Animals in Suits" series, Ryan likes to tackle surreal subject matter in a very friendly way. He works from his home in Portland, Oregon with his wife, Lucy and their wacky epileptic dog, Walker.

Please come on by tomorrow, April 8, from 5-8 p.m. to check out Ryan's work and to meet the artist! Of course, the paintings can also be purchased online here. But don't hesitate, this awesome won't last!

Gift idea

Ever since this show opened I have been thinking of people I could give these prints to as gifts. They are perfect as they work for anyone who lives in the named state and they are just awesome and super affordable at $15 each.

I am going to give my Mom Wisconsin and Texas because we grew up in Wisconsin and now she lives in Texas - so reminders of home! (hope she doesn't read this post!!)

See the first 15 states they have choosen to create here
Fingers crossed they have your wish list states!!
