The Artwork of Marie Barr - Opening Reception!

Re's first solo art show at the Hyaena Gallery is coming up this Saturday (June 16th) and I couldn't be more excited for her because she really deserves it. I can't even begin to tell you how much work she's put into this show, but you'll understand when you see it all. We're gonna be loading up the cars tonight to bring all of the artwork over to the gallery.

If you're anywhere even close to Los Angeles, I urge you to come out and see the show. The opening reception goes on from 8pm - Midnight this Saturday night. There's no cover charge to get into the gallery, there's always some free snacks and most importantly... you'll get to see all of this amazing artwork that she's been busting her ass on for so long. She'll have original paintings, Giclée prints, posters, comic books and more for sale at the show... something for everybody no matter what your budget is.

And no, this is not some snooty wine & cheese art gallery that you have to dress up for. In addition to Re's artwork, the gallery has all sorts of cool toys, magazines and novelties for sale. So yeah, as long as you don't show up naked, you'll be aok. Actually, you probably could show up naked and nobody would mind. It is L.A. after all.

Naturally, I'll be at the show all night as well. After all, yours truly did almost all of the framing for the artwork that will be on display. I used to work full-time in a frame shop and I still wield a mean point gun. So by all means come meet me and say hey!

Here's the flyer for it:

Damn me for living on the wrong coast. The artwork on the flyer alone is beautiful; wish I could come check it out.

Awesome! You told me about this earlier, I'll see if I can stop by! This stuff is WONDERFUL!

I plan on stopping by when I get back to town on Saturday.

Excellent and congrats!

The Hyaena studio is a great location and the gala events are always well attended. It's funny, today I was just speaking to Peter Mihaichuk (, who was featured in the last show. We work together in town here on various projects and we were talking about his experience with Hyaena. Apparently it was a crazy gala as it was the same weekend as the Fangoria Festival.

Congrats again Re. I sincerely enjoy your work and would love to see it personally in the future.

If I lived anywhere near America I'd be there in a heartbeat RoG, but I'm in Goddamn London, England.
Please wish Re best of luck from me, (chim chim charee).

VERY SORRY we couldn't make it out there for this. REALLY wanted to be able to pull it off. I hope everything goes well (I'm sure it will) and definitely take pictures and let us know the story!!!

Sejanoz (Guest) on 06/14/2007 11:54 pm

If I wasn't in Australia, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

RoG, your wife is as talented as you are, if not more so.


Aks (Guest) on 06/15/2007 1:11 am

Hey can you get a shitload of those posters and put em in the shop or something? Id like to have something since I cant make it cause Im in Illinois.

Thanks again everyone!!!!

I'm on the east coast, but I've always been a fan of Re's art. If I was in the area I'd definitely come without a second thought. Do another one down in Atlanta so I can come.


jas (Guest) on 06/15/2007 5:55 pm

Do another one in Atlanta? I live here and I can't believe I missed it! When and where was it last time?

Yeah, come back to Atlanta!


Rev. Dr. M (Guest) on 06/15/2007 7:41 pm

I'll try my damndest to be there, RoG.


Soude (Guest) on 06/17/2007 11:06 am

Wow, I really wish I could go. To bad I live in Canada =/. Re's an amazing artist, I've always wished I could make things that good.


Ivan (Guest) on 06/17/2007 7:57 pm

Damn, couldn't make it for the opening reception. Will Re be there for the entire exhibit?


RE (Guest) on 06/19/2007 12:45 am

Hey Ivan - no I personally will not be there, but the show will be up for 2 more weeks
