    May 20 - July 8, 2017 Praying to the Giant Orange Head, at BOX 13 ArtSpace in Houston, TX

    Praying to the Giant Orange Head | TEN Gallery and Collective
    Downstairs Back BOX

    Members of TEN Gallery and Collective are pleased to present Praying to the Giant Orange Head, at BOX 13 ArtSpace in Houston. Photographs, paintings, sculpture, and mixed media artworks in this group exhibition address issues related to the current cultural and political climate. Absurdity and humor match grievous consideration of a variety of concerns including governmental policy, racism, women’s rights, and attempts at serenity in an overwhelming world of words. The visual language is culled from artists as far ranging as Goya, Philip Guston, Jasper Johns, and others, who are at least in part known for making political and personal commentary through their artwork. Artists include Peter Barnitz, Dawn Black, Ida Floreak, Cheryl Hayes, David Rex Joyner, Sarah Marshall, Jonathan “feral opossum” Mayers, Jeffrey Rinehart, Kathy Rodriguez, Bryce Speed, and Heather Weathers.

    TEN Collective was founded in 2012, with a gallery site located on Magazine Street in New Orleans. This is their first collaboration on an established theme, and with BOX 13 ArtSpace.

    April 1st - 30th, 2017 Nos Histoires, Curated by Jonathan "feral opossum" Mayers, at the TEN Gallery in New Orleans, LA

    Evermore important during this political climate, women in the arts such as Julie Mehretu, Faith Ringgold, Mika Rottenberg, Jenny Saville, Swoon, and Kara Walker have created some of the most engaging, thoughtful, and powerful works. However, for some their works can be difficult to decipher without context. Nos Histoires presents an array of visual art and commentary by women connected to the southern Louisiana art realm. Their fonts of inspiration, displayed in both English and French texts, reveal the esoteric context behind these works in hopes of creating a multi-faceted connection with both informed and uninformed audiences.

    Artists: Danielle Burns, Dawn Black, Kathleen DeArmas, Amanda James, Nicole Johnson, Kelli Scott Kelley, Lee Randall, Emily Randall, Kelly Stombaugh, and Jane Tardo.

    (Reception: Saturday April 1, 2017, 6-9PM)

    "Louisiana is full of culture, not least of which is the varied French heritage throughout the state. This exhibition will highlight artists from each of the three French speaking cultures of Louisiana, including 29th September Competition juror Francis Pavy. The AMoA collection includes work by artists with French heritage, as well as a few French artists. As the French connection has been strong through Louisiana's history, this influence has continued through to contemporary art."

    I'm so delighted and honored to have the opportunity to show with these eight talented individuals in the upcoming "Tiercé: Artists of Louisiana Francophone Cultures" at the Alexandria Museum of Art and to represent French culture en Louisiane! The nine artists representing the three French cultural backgrounds in Louisiana are Francis Pavy, George Rodrigue, Angelbert Metoyer, Jean-Marcel St. Jacques, George Marks, Giraud Polite, Jonathan Mayers, Season Bivens, and Norma Roy.

    The Louisiana Art & Science Museum will embrace the world of animation through
    The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons, running April 13th - July 24th, 2016. This is a large-scale comprehensive overview of the animation studio that created such beloved characters as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig. This 160 piece exhibition will be complemented by an additional visual and interactive experience entitled “The Origins of Animation”, and I, along with local artists, have been asked to help make it come to life.

    “The Origins of Animation” draws inspiration from earlier forms of animation and gives the public a greater opportunity to understand the animation process through aesthetic experiences as well as hands-on explorations of cartooning, zoetropes, thaumatropes, flip books, and stop motion artwork. I'm so happy to participate in this exhibition because I've been invited to create a kineograph (rotating flip book) which will be featured in “The Origins of Animation,” running from April 16th - August 7th, 2016.

    I've uploaded the animated GIF version of Pad Pouncing, the animation I've created for the kineograph in "The Origins of Animation", which can be found by clicking here for those that aren't able to see the physical version of the animation at the LASM.

    November 21st, 2015 - January 3rd, 2016 Lustrous Lines: Contemporary Metalpoint Drawings at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, CA. Curated by artists Jeannine Cook and Jeff Lewis.

    Lustrous Lines: Contemporary Metalpoint Drawings offers a 21st century update to a quietly powerful and shimmering drawing medium that originated in the 8th century AD. Today’s artists, in the USA, the UK and Australia, selected for this show by metalpoint artists and curators Jeannine Cook and Jeffrey Lewis, Professor of Art at Auburn University, AL, demonstrate a vigorous inventiveness in subject matter and technical approach in this exacting, demanding medium. The 43 drawings, principally in silver and gold, form a compelling and unusual body of work that attests to the dedication of these noted artists to this ancient yet very modern medium of metalpoint.

    November 7th - 29th, 2015 Ici ou Là-bas, peut-être Là-haut. (Here or Down There, perhaps Up There.), a two-person exhibit with Acadian artist, Denise Comeau at the TEN Gallery in New Orleans, LA

    In this two-person exhibit, I am pleased to introduce Acadian artist, Denise Comeau, from Comeauville, Nova Scotia. Her work, consisting of vast and wonderful watercolor skyscapes speckled with images of flocking blackbirds on paper, will be on display alongside my sediment adorned acrylic paintings featuring landscapes teeming with weird creatures. We paint what we know and together our works create a nice dialogue between the natural and the fantastical in seemingly familiar worlds to explore. There will be stories written in English and in French, some telling mythological tales, accompanying many of the paintings in this exhibit.

    - Jonathan "feral opossum" Mayers

    Je suis très content de faire partie de cette exposition à deux avec l’artiste Denise Comeau, une acadienne de Comeauville en Nouvelle-Écosse. Ses aquarelles peignant de vastes paysages célestes ornés d’oiseaux discrets rappellent son milieu de vie. Elles sont placées à côté de mes peintures en acrylique et sédiments qui évoquent des paysages habités de créatures bizarres. Nous peignons ce que nous connaissons et nos œuvres suggèrent un dialogue entre le naturel et le fantastique ouvrant la porte à l’exploration de mondes qui nous semblent familiers. Un texte présenté en anglais et en français accompagne la plupart des pièces de cette exposition.

    This show is a group show put together by the members of the TEN gallery collective. It is a show that gives us a chance to experience all of our work together for the first time. We need to see if our work can get along as well as we do. Even though we have been at this location since August, 2012 we have decided to re-introduce ourselves to the uptown community for the "first time". We are a contemporary artist run gallery space trying to carve out a niche in an area that is a vital part of the New Orleans creative culture. The artists come from all over the southern region and are fully committed to exploring what it means to be a contemporary artist living in the south.

    April 6th - April 30th, 2015 Du Bassin Sauvage (From the Wild Basin) at Cité des Arts in Lafayette, LA. This is a Two-Person exhibit with artist Gabrielle Savoy.

    Having been created with passion by Cajuns from both sides of the Atchafalaya Basin, paintings and mixed media works in "Du Bassin Sauvage" feature figures and creatures that exist in symbolic narratives of emotionally charged experiences that remain beautifully authentic. Themes of reclamation and culture from south Louisiana run concurrently through this two-person exhibit of Louisiana artists Gabrielle Savoy and Jonathan “feral opossum” Mayers.

    A new public collaborative project that I am working on will appear in part of this wonderful exhibit:

    Découvrez. Écoutez. Créez.
    Discover. Listen. Create.

    You’re about to discover what makes Cajun & Creole culture among the most beautiful in the world while helping to create the first public collaborative experiences of its kind...

    Ever want to create art, but feel like you “weren’t creative enough”? You’re not alone, and it doesn’t have to be that way forever. See, the key to creating great art is allowing yourself to be inspired…

    Introducing: “Découvrez. Écoutez. Créez.” (Discover. Listen. Create)

    This inaugural series invites you to fully experience a comprehensive collection of 3 masterful Louisiana Musicians. Each one- their own story, their own sound, their own love of the Louisiana roots. Each musician is painted on a Magic: The Gathering™ trading card, which is inspired by some of my fondest memories growing up playing Magic…

    Here’s how to Discover, Listen, Create…

    - At each art display, you’ll find a headset. Place them on your head (and over your ears) and immerse yourself in the physical art work and music that now surround you. Go ahead- dance a little- you know you want to…
    - After you’ve had plenty of time to DISCOVER and LISTEN to your Louisiana musician, CREATE a response by using the acrylic markers provided next to the display.
    - Draw and write (en français ou en anglais) over anything already on the panel (and anywhere you want!). You’ll be creating one of today’s most powerful and popular forms of art - graffiti.
    - Don’t worry about ‘”ruining” someone else’s contribution. The foundation of graffiti lies in the artist (you) to unforgivingly paint on top of each other’s tags and pieces…
    - You’ll be helping to create the first public collaborative experience of its kind - a physical manifestation of response history created by the collaboration of every single visitor - a melting pot of thoughts, interests, ideas, and personalities.

    Allow yourself to be inspired, and you shall inspire…

    Cette série d’inauguration vous invite à profiter pleinement l’expérience d’une collection compréhensive de maîtres de la musique louisianaise.

Chaque musicien est representé sur une carte Magic: The Gathering™ inspirée de mes souvenirs du jeu Magic.

    Voici comment tu peux Découvir, Écouter, Créer...

    - Dessine et écris (en français ou en anglais) où que tu veux sur le panneau (et même dessus ce qui est déjà là !) Tu participeras à la création d’une des formes artistiques les plus puissantes et populaires de notre temps – le graffiti.
    - Ne te tracasse pas, tu ne vas pas gâcher la contribution de quelqu’un d’autre. La fondation de graffiti repose sur le principe que l’artiste (toi) peut peinturer sans merci dessus les tags et les oeuvres des autres...
    - Tu aideras à la création de la première collaboration expérientielle publique de son genre – une manifestation physique d’histoire de réponse créée par la collaboration de chaque visiteur – un mélange de pensées, intérêts, idées, et personnalités.

    Gallery Hours: 10:00AM - 5:00PM Monday-Sunday.

    This is a juried group show.

    This exhibit celebrates works of art that bring to life fantastical myths, legends, fables, folktales, fairy tales, and the like. Around the world, from prehistoric times to the present, artists have been part of the story-telling process, giving shape and form to fantastical stories of supernatural beings, great heroes and heroines, cautionary tales, magical creatures, and more. In ancient times, artists commonly rendered images of these stories on walls, pottery, statuary, tapestries, and paintings. In more recent times, books, graphic novels, movies, apps, and games have expanded the way we experience these stories. No matter the time period, the artist becomes the story-teller and shares their spectacular vision through their art. For this exhibit, we invite artists to submit works that tell fantastical stories. The goal is assemble a vibrant and diverse selection of works that speak to the many ways artists can enhance and truly bring to life myths and legends.

    Amulet of Krood has been accepted into this show.

    This is a group show juried by Rebecca Head Trautmann and Andrew Baxter.

    Inspired by the ancient belief that all life is composed of four elements - earth, air, fire, and water - Elements in Balance invites artists to submit works that explore one or more of these elements. The jury seeks an array of works that reveal how artists imagine and understand life on Earth from differing perspectives. The goal is to bring together a rich collection that explores, celebrates, and possibly challenges, our understanding of the elements of life.

    Both Rougarou vs. Gojira and Brine Falls have been accepted into this show along with pieces by my friend, Sarah House.

These colorful images range from eerie swamp scenes to a certain spastic golden ticket holder(who also coined the phrase "Chocolate City") with wacky bits of truth in between. Each piece created for the show will have information on the materials used, prices of those materials, and creation time.
