Ricky’s Year in Review

Maybe this pic wasn’t in the blog, but I’m pretty sure it was in one of our emails.  This was taken last May, when I travelled over to Uganda with some friends to volunteer, primarily at an HIV/AIDS orphanage.  After about 3.5 weeks of volunteering, we headed to Queen Elizabeth National Park for a camping trip / safari. This is probably my favourite product and product shot of 2011, DOMO ARIGATO MISTER ROBOTO.  My friend Laura was cool enough to help us up at Cypress Mountain and keep this goofy shot.  Like most of our shoots, we try to keep ’em serious.  We came up with this one through a collab effort between us and our pal Davey Gravy from Calgary.  Davey is well known for his unique art pieces, he sits at home in a rocking chair… Cross stitching rap lyrics. I’d say my fave Instagram of the year would have to be from our drive down to San Francisco in July.  Instead of taking the I-5 (we were doing too well on time), we opted for the windy,... Read More

11 Days…

Nothing like getting in the spirit of the holidays, or The Origami Ghost Christmas Countdown, with a little Home Alone.  You could say we’re a little into this classic, ahem, because it brings us right back to Christmas time in the early 90s.  What seemed normal or even possible back then, is far more hilarious now – a family forgets their own bratty son while he fends off robbers through less than possible pranks. Kids now’a days have it so easy… New Message from Kevin MOM U FORGOT ME AGAIN :S LAWL Share Read More

NO PLACE LIKE: PAINTINGS BY JASON DEARY

Last Thursday night The Gallery played host to Jason Deary‘s first solo show in Calgary, No Place Like: Paintings by Jason Deary.  Originally from Windsor, ON., Jason now splits life between both Calgary and Banff as he expands his talents on the Western front.  A shift from his detailed, hand-numbing work in black and white typography, this series featured  a variety of medium in bold colour.  No Place Like: blurs the line between urban, suburban, and nature; all of which are extremely relative to the artists past and current experiences in attempting to interpret his definition of ‘home.’  You can catch Jason’s work for sale at The Gallery until the end of December, so go check it out!   Share Read More
