The “Sweeter Side of Craig” series will be exhibited at the Contemporary Arts Exchange on December 6. As the poster says, ”No politics, No naked people, No statements”. I’ve mentioned the series to several friends and their first reaction is, “That’s no fun”. I haven’t stopped producing those dumbass political pieces but these presentations are the less controversial works. I produce a large amount of floral, broadsheets, books and botanicals that many people are not familiar with. These will be smaller, framed prints that would make excellent Christmas gifts. (hint, hint) I will also be offering Christmas cards; linoleum cuts with hand painting on Thai paper. I posted some “Sweeter” images on an earlier blog and some book images on another. The pieces I’m posting now are some new works that will be included. I use some experimental techniques but most are based on letterpress, stencil and relief processes.

In the other gallery we will be hosting Susan Hanberry. She will be exhibiting a crocheted coral reef. This is an amazing piece of soft sculpture. It measures over six feet and is an intricate assortment of coral, starfish, shrimp and sea life. My favorite part is the big-eyed red octopus. My photograph does not do it justice.
Come on down to the Exchange December 6 from 7:00 – 10:00. Cakery supplied by the sweetest baker in town, Amanda. Also check out the Middle Georgia State College student show at the 567 Gallery.
