Check out this 20 second preview of the installation Brian Steckel and I are putting together for our next show at +Believe Inn. It's still a work in progress, but we are getting hyped seeing it come together...well I am anyway. Brian is a big self critic. :)

If you're a fan of my artwork, please show some love by picking up a copy of my new self published book. You can view the entire book in the preview below (unfortunately it only shows a page at a time, and the page relationships are very nice). Hardcover, 83 pages, an introductory essay by Damien James and besides a few other pages of text the rest is just full color artwork by me and my buddies. It's an artful book full of art designed for quality quiet time away from a computer screen. I feel good about it and I think you will too. I know it's an expensive book, (I'm only making $10 per book) but you can get free shipping if you use the code "FREESHIP" by December 10th...guaranteed to arrive by the 24th.

Believe Inn presents award winning artist collective, 83ism's new multi media installation and new paintings by Lauren Feece.

After receiving the juried award for best 3-dimensional work at last year's ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, 83ism (formerly, ABCD 83) returns to Believe Inn with a fun new collaborative art installation. “NOW SEE HEAR” is a video/sound installation involving over 30 artists. Participants were given templates to work with and asked to submit video content to be projected onto a very minimal sculpture - all with little idea what the other artists may submit. The content will all be arranged into a final edit, including a 4 channel sound mix by sound designer, Zach Goheen. The end result is expected to be an extremely immersive sort of “channel surfing” experience. 

Participating artists:

Alberto Aguilar, Anthony Allen, Anthony Esquivel, Anthony Lewellen, Brian Dressel, Brian Steckel, Catie Olson, Chris Silva, Chuck Pryzbyl, Colby Byrn, Dan Ezra Lang, Daniel Bigelow, Edra Soto, Eli Feuerstein, Jake Myers, James Jankowiak, Jay Esangga, Jeremy Pettis, Joe Esquivel, John Heenan, Josh Grotto, Julie Murphy, Kenny Klopack, Luftwerk, Madeleine Aguilar, Marc Silva, Marvin Tate, Nicole Antonopulos, Nick Adam, Peter Casey, Prashant Bhargava, Ryan Pohanic, Solo R.M., Thor, Tom Burtonwood, Zach Goheen.

In the rear room of Believe Inn, Lauren Feece will exhibit work from a new series of paintings on canvas. Lauren has returned her focus to magical spaces of abstraction and nature, where she seeks to recapture the sense of depth and resonance which she experiences during her most quiet-minded and lucid experiences of reality.
