Announcing Fantastic Contraption!

Click above for full size flier.

Brace yourselves, for today I am the bearer of grand news! Seriously, if you like art, exhibits and mechanical parts you may want to have a seat and grab the smelling salts.

On July 19th Device Gallery in La Jolla opens what very well could be The Ultimate Steam-Cyber-Cog-And Otherwise-Punk Art Show. Once you’ve collected yourselves after taking a bewildered gander at the list of names I have provided below you will know I speak the truth. And if you somehow do not, have no fear. Over the next two weeks Coilhouse will be giving you detailed looks at the work of these skilled creators. Rejoice!

Ashley Wood Christopher Conte D. Hwang Eduard Anikonov Eric Joyner Greg Brotherton H.R. Giger John U. Abrahamson Kazuhiko Nakamura Mike Libby Nemo Gould Stephane Halleux Theo Kamecke Viktor Koen William B. Hand Wayne Martin Belger – Zoran Milivojevic [dear god someone please give me a link]

Naturally, at least one part of Coilhouse will be in attendance.

    Zoran does not have a website, but I can tell you that for the show he has made a chair from the hydraulic torpedo lifting jaws off a nuclear submarine. It is a little heavy but would be make a perfect captains chair for a industrial starship.

    Gregory to the rescue! Thank you for that, now I’ll be at least thrice as certain to be there. Gah.

    I’m so excited I’ve got the shivers.
    It’ll be a nice change of pace to see some wondrous art without having to drive 2 and half hours to LA. Speaking of which I might just make the trip up Saturday to Gallery Nucleus to see the “INTO THE WOODS” Exhibit.
