A PAINTING A DAY / crescent city brewhouse april first… five pm

Once a year I get the opportunity to show at the crescent city brewhouse on decatur street, and this year?   I get to show for april, WHICH includes french qtr fest, shore leave and both jazzfest weekends.    AGAIN , with Offbeat Magazine Photographer KIM WELSH, and Photographer RICK MOORE, we will grace the walls with our nola goodness.

LOTS of jazzfest shots, secondlines, and krewes…    for myself?   a painting a day.   here’s a taste of some of the works I have been working on.   mostly things I found after mardigras that inspired me, done festival style.

see you at crescent brewpub april first at five pm upstairs.

tis a new year ahead, and new art

just came back from the OCH art market last weekend, and honestly?  I love this market.   everyone is so friendly, and I always do really well.  SO well, that feb 8th the mardigras market will feature myself, skinznbonez and the wild tchoupitoulas.  you see all three are interconnected, and what better way to showvalentine tumble that?  then a mini pub crawl for Mr Bone Jangles, and some fun at zeitgeist.    we will see you all there.   happy holidaze.

OCH Art Market.

The Second Saturday of each month, I will have a table at the art market.   Located at 1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.   I recently was the featured artist along with Cynthia Ramirez for the Latin Fest this past saturday, and had a wonderful time.   Things are about to ramp up, with Christmas coming, and all I gotta say?  DRINK AND SHOP.   What better way to celebrate your city, and your gifts than buying local while listening to live music, and having cocktails.

IF you get a chance this month, go see Cynthia Ramirez Day of the Dead Altar at the Ogden Museum.   She is truly a beautiful spirit, and shares it well with this community.

I will also be pulling into ANBA DLO art market for the yearly festival on Oct 19th at the New Orleans Healing Center.  Look for my krewe Skinz N Bonez to be in the parade which begins at Mimi’s in the Marigny at five thirty pm line up.

get out and enjoy halloween, and support local artists and the markets.   find yourself some great halloween costumes, and more.    see you out there in the BOO CARRE.

in the words of marvin gaye…. whats goin on?

de la razahere we are going into my favorite month of the year, besides august.   I find myself invited to many new things, and the one I’m most excited about?  IS the OCH art market celebration of DIA DE LA RAZA.   they asked me to do the poster, which is above, without the verbage yet, and I was very excited.  I felt that Columbus, although not always viewed in a postive light, needed to be a parade person, with the OCH flag, and a typical dancing skeleton in front of zeitgeist!   I think it worked.   I am officially the featured artist this oct 12th, and look forward to sharing ideas, art, and more.   I will have a booth, and will add some fun things like drums, candles, tshirts, and of course paintings.   I hope you do come out.

other happenings?   I have recently hung new works at both surrey’s on magazine.  1418 and 4807.  In this show?  are day of the dead altars.   and they are looking good.    these are a taste of a very special altar party for day of the dead that will roll OCTOBER FIFTH, through the qtr with the womens bone gang SKINZNBONEZ.  the soul sweepers will be on hand to help clear the spirits as we roll a life size catrina through the qtr, with arnauds, good friends, erin rose, molly’s on toulouse, the kerry, spitfire, aunt tiki’s and the R BAR.   to attend this fabulous skeleton event?  one needs to visit www.skinznbonez.com and make a donation of ten dollars, which will go towards ARNO, and dog and cat rescue.   dress up in your finest day of the dead wear, and join skinz n bonez.

on October 19th, I will be out with the bone gang rolling in anba dlo.   I did a great poster for them a few years back, and will also be on hand with a booth.   Please stop in this fabulous celebration at the New Orleans Healing Center, and catch all the live music and krewes as they welcome Anba Dlo back to the st roch neighborhood.

October 26th brings the newly reformed Krewe Of Boo back to the quarter, rolling a first!   A GREEN PARADE.   thank you katrina brees for gathering up a storm that Brian Kern couldn’t turn down.

I also have new works up at A Musing Bike Rentals at their new location on magazine street.  Congrats to my good friends there.  make sure when your in town that you stop in for purchase or to rent one of their fabulous bikes, while you peruse some skeletons riding…  New Location is 1818 Magazine street.

in the upcoming months you will see me move into McClures BBQ.  More work at Dog Day Afternoon, and then a gallery on Royal street.

don’t forget to support the kidney foundation party either, come november at harrahs casino, where you’ll find a mardiclaw painting donated to raise money for the cause.

happy autumn  y’all.

MC

lil red roosterall the worlds a stage, and this month?  I’ll be working on more and more roosters and chickens.    I thank everyone who came out to the crescent city brewpub gallery opening.  special thanks to Kim Welsh, and Rick Moore, who also contributed, and are two of my favorite photographers in the city!

NEXT UP?  I will be at the Bayou St John Boat Parade with the Krewe Of Kolossos, and am being Crowned!   I am so excited!   A bonus?  is the fact that “Katrina Brees”, has gotten the parade community?  into going green, with her recent merge with the Krewe Of Boo, who will be returning this October to the streets of New Orleans, and throwing only GREEN throws.  no plastic beads!

HERE’S to The Krewe Of Kolossus, and the Bayou St John fourth of july boat parade!    expect only botanical throws, and if you get out and enjoy?  please be aware of the bayou, the animals, and make sure you leave no trash behind.  KEEP IT GREEN!

cheers!
