Plush Week! at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight

Plushweek

Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight — voted 2005’s Art Gallery of the Year in a Vapors Magazine readers poll — will forgo oil, watercolor, and acrylic for a different kind of canvas come this Valentine’s Day.

During PLUSH WEEK!, opening on February 7 and running until February 14, hundreds of one-of-a-kind stuffed creations will adorn the gallery’s walls, all handcrafted by some of the world’s most talented plush artists. “Stuffed animals are something that everyone remembers from childhood, but there’s a whole other genre of plush out there for those of us who outgrew Care Bears but still love the idea of having artful decorations relaxing on your couch or hanging on the wall,” said Jon M. Gibson, co-curator of PLUSH WEEK!, as well as last April’s wildly successful old-school videogame-themed show, I AM 8-BIT, also at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight. “The plush artists we’ve assembled are just as gifted as today’s most popular painters, only their medium involves needles, thread, and a hell of a lot of fabric.”

MC Serch Legends Alarm Clock

Serch01

Ecko, the folks who brought us the Flava Flav and Biz Markie alarm clocks, are set to introduce the 3rd character in their Legends alarm clock line.  The latest talking alarm clock is of former 3rd Bass member - MC Serch.  The clock is available in 2 versions - the red version has 8 alarm phases, while the more limited (500 piece) black version has two extra phases.  And when I say "phase", I mean different lines that the alarm wakes you up with.
