Ogden’s First Friday Art Stroll is my favorite time of the month. Luckily for me (and YOU) it comes around every single month, year ’round, every year. Every month, we change things up a bit at Pandemonium. Sometimes we only put up a few new pieces of art, and sometimes we do a HUGE switcharoo! For June, we’re doing the latter. Here are some of the awesome things you can expect to see on June 5th.
New work from Nathan Shumate. Nathan’s art has been described as disturbing, cute, humorous, steampunk, Tim Burttonesque, and weird. But I think one word that really describes it is AWESOME! Not only are we going to have a couple of new sculptures by Nathan this month, but we’ll also have a couple of paintings! That’s right. Nathan was so inspired by one of his favorite artists at the gallery, Grant Fuhst, that he’s started painting again. We’re really excited to share those with you.

New work from Jo Bradbury. You’ve seen Jo’s beautiful and serene industrial and city landscapes, and you’re about to see more! I haven’t yet seen the pieces I’ll have on display for you next month, but I have no doubt they’ll be just as awe inspiring as the others.

New work from Michelle Larsen. Michelle’s art always turns heads and gets people talking at Pandemonium, so we’re super excited about the new painting we’ll have in June. I can’t show you a picture of it yet because it’s not done. Guess you’ll have to come check it out in person! ;)
“Harvest” by Michelle Larsen
New artist, Sarah Larsen! Sarah will be the featured artist in June. Her paintings are a unique take on abstract portraits and cityscapes. Her choice of color, the amount of detail, and her use of lines are so impressive, I could stare at them for hours.

New Artist, Stacie Van Arsdale! I kinda have a thing for cute, strange, and whimsical taxidermy. So imagine my excitement when I got paired up with Stacie Van Arsdale! I seriously can’t wait to show you all of Stacie’s felted faux taxidermy animals. Not only does she do all of the felting, but she makes all of the clothing for each creature by hand, specifically for that piece. She even makes little noses and handpaints the eyes for many of her pieces. These little guys are darling, and I don’t think they’ll last too long, so don’t wait to come see them!

Not only is June 5th the day of the art stroll, but it’s also the annual car show on 25th Street! It’s gonna be a hoppin’ day, and I hope you’ll all come out. We usually open at 6 pm during the art stroll, but we’ll be open at 11 am this time!
Have a fabulous rest of May, everyone, and I’ll see you on June 5th!
