This just went out in the "Email Update"...thought I'd share it here too:

-------------------------
TOTALLY RADISH!
-------------------------

Exactly one week from tomorrow...Friday, March 2, we kick off a long run of shows in our Gallery that feature the amazing talents of Chicago-based artists. First up to take the reins will be none other than Shawnimal Smith, local/national/international celebrity of the plush ninja and mustache (among his myriad other characters) known to the world as "Shawnimals." As you might guess by the title, the show involves a certain foodstuff, but you certainly won't be disappointed if you are a fan of the backstories that Shawn (we'll finally drop the -imal here) is also known for....he has put a ton of work, paint, sculpey and sweat into developing an entire world around said food and the sad, sad tale of a farmer who's missing *something*....intrigued? We thought so.

--OPENING PARTY Friday, March 2, 7-11pm
--Meet Shawn and make him draw, or maybe, just maybe dance for you!
--Free beer and sodas by the fine folks at Goose Island!
--Sean Doe makes his debut as a Rotofugi Gallery master of the beats!
--Exhibit continues through March 24

For those out of town or otherwise indisposed, send us an email and we'll send the availability list a day or two after the opening (sorry, no pre-sales...you gotta come to the opening for the best selection).

Thanks for posting, Kirby! And thanks Josh. Here's a pic of the radish below! And as far purchasing, I would get it directly from Roto initially. They'll have 50 of the 100 pcs. After the opening, assuming most of the radishes sell, the other 50 will be available on our site.

FOAM, I didn't understand your last PM, what's all this about being bass taped? And circle the wagons, are you being attacked by Indians?

There's a lot going on this weekend... it'd be great to see you but that would be rough. You know how openings are, especially when your work's on the walls! No doubt we'll be going out after, so if you're up for it? Thanks for the nice words.

Fire: Sorry to hear about your run-in... Hope all works out OK.
