All Dressed Up With No Place To Go


Wootini is pleased to present All Dressed Up With No Place To Go: Glass
Paintings by Kevin Herdeman
from September 11th to October 6th. The opening reception will take place on the 11th from 7PM until 11PM,
featuring music by the Wootini family, popcorn, and Kevin himself.

All Dressed Up With No Place To Go features
all new work, inspired by anything from pop culture (for example, the
reoccurring Bearded Spock), music (especially the Misfits and Tim
Waits), and jokes between Herdeman and his girlfriend. Herdeman
explains that the goal of his paintings is to make the viewer laugh—he
paints what makes him happy, and hopes that it will do the same for
everyone who sees it. Herdeman’s philosophy of painting makes sense of
his bizarre subjects. His serious giraffes in formal wear and Boston
Terriers with caveman beards are certainly good at their jobs.

Nahualli Blind Box Mini Figures


A project that has been three years in the making, Yahid "Serial Killer" Rodriguez and Wootini have recently released the Nahualli blind box mini figure line. (I remember when these were first introduced as 3D renders on the Kidrobot site back in the day)

The "Nahualli" according to Yahid is derived from an old tale told to Méxican children about creatures that made a pact with a demon called "Nahuales". While looking like normal people by day, the "Nahuales" could transform into various animals and cause mischief at night. This inspired a child to try to become a "Nahuale" when he 'grew up'. "Nahualli is naughty by nature and drives his entire town crazy with his pranks! He uses his costumes to scare everyone around, committed to one day be known as the greatest Nahuale in history," says Yahid. "His friends don't know whether to be afraid or just laugh at him, but one thing is for sure, he strives to become a real Nahuale no matter the consequences."

There are 10 different designs and each case contains one rare figure (or
ultra rare figure). Look for the line to retail around $9 each. For wholesale inquiries, contact DKE Toys.

Daniel Danger at Wootini


Wootini will have the artwork of Daniel Danger on display beginning on January 11th through February 5th.  The opening will take place at 7PM.

If you like the unsettling surreal.  If you like ambulances lost in the
middle of snowy woods, girls turning into herons, beds floating into
the sky, ghosts with meanings on a thousand different levels, and lots
and lots of trees that are just too tall and don't seem to end.  Then you will enjoy this show.

The MF Show at Wootini


Wootini will be showing off the work of Martina Secondo Russo and Frank Russo at The MF Show tomorrow evening (Friday October 12th).  The opening will begin at 7PM, so be there on time!

Martina Secondo Russo and Frank Russo of MF Gallery in Manhattan, NY are bringing down a visual onslaught of art that is sure to horrify the weak and tickle the fancies of the bold.  If you're a fan of Zombies, Monsters, GWAR, Metal, Sideshow Freaks or Horror Flicks, know this: these two are the East Coast's masters. They have endlessly and successfully shown some of the best art having anything to do with the pulp-monster universe that your fangs so fiercely crave.

Jason Hankins and David K. Rose at Wootini

The folks at Wootini will be kicking off the fall season on Friday September 14th.  (Even though it's still in the mid-90's in these parts)   They'll be displaying work from two local artists in David K. Rose and Jason Hankins.



David K. Rose, whose work has shown far and wide, is best known for his knock-out use of monkeys, luchadores, robots, and ham. Throw in some T.U.R.D. power cords and you have the most creative guy in Durham.  Playful works urge the viewer to rabidly consume everything in sight and question American norms, his paintings never disappoint.


Jason Hankins, a strong up-and-coming Raleigh super-force focuses his time and energy on bold line work and powerfully imaginative pieces, presenting the viewer with this question: "Whoa".
