State of Emergency by Marc Swanson, mixed media, 2001 - click for details

Cryptozoossemblaxidermyâ„¢ artist Marc Swanson will present ten years worth of mixed media works in a solo exhibition titled Hurry on Sundown which will go on show tomorrow at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art (details below).

The description of the show sounds pretty comprehensive indeed:

"[...] The exhibition will [include] mirror paintings, sparkling encrusted sculptures, drawings, and two dioramic installations:

Always and Nothing, based on his father’s backyard in New Hampshire; and Killing Moon: Self-Portrait as a Yeti a life-size sculpture of a Himalayan snowman. [...]"

Sounds like fun.
