Magic Hat Update: One Week In

12 June, 2015   by Matthew Greene

Rhino Beetle by Nicole Christman

We're one week into Nicole's exhibit at the ArtSpace in Magic Hat's Artifactory. We've bid adieu to FIVE pieces already — and we wish them all the best in their new homes.

If you haven't made it over to the exhibit, what are you waiting for?!

If you're unable to check out the artwork in person (i.e. you're not one of the whopping 211,261 people in the Burlington metropolitan area), it's all good! Many of the new pieces are still for sale. Just contact us directly and we'll be in touch faster than you can recite the Gettysburg Address. Backwards.

And now...two plugs! (What else are blogs for?)

First, we launched a Kickstarter campaign last Friday to produce digital prints and stickers of Nicole's art. We're only 8% of the way to our $2500 goal, so please consider making a pledge. There are big rewards for doing so!

Second, Nicole's now on Twitter. Follow her @HybridPainting and stay up to date.


And the finalists for Magic Hat's "Labels for Libations" contest are...

We're not entirely sure, but we know ONE of them...

We're back, and happy to announce that Nicole has been selected as one of five finalists for Magic Hat Brewing Company's "Labels for Libations" contest! The designs of the five finalists will be displayed during Art Hop 2014, September 5th and 6th.

Voting for the winning design will take place at the Magic Hat booth behind the Maltex Building, 431 Pine Street, Burlington, on the following dates:

  • Friday the 5th, 6-10pm
  • Saturday the 6th, noon-3 and 6-10:30pm 

Those interested in seeing (and voting for) the labels – which will be displayed at the awesome size of 4' x 4' – MUST COME BY THE BOOTH and VOTE LIVE. The design with the most votes will become the label for next year's Art Hop Ale. Don't miss it!

Looking Back: Art Hop 2013

16 September, 2013   by Matthew Greene

Hi, all!

It's now been over a week since the South End Art Hop here in Burlington, and we are still recovering...from the exhausting and incredible time we had spending time with friends old and new, talking about art and other terrific things. Nicole's hybrid creatures and Matt's chapbook, Patients, were a big hit with Art Hoppers, as was the eclectic array of other artists' work that decorated the rest of Green Door's gallery space. It was frequently said by Hoppers that coming down into Green Door Studio was the highlight of their Art Hop experience. Words cannot express our collective appreciation for the kindness and support we received.

The gallery is open to the public every Friday evening, so come on down and visit us at 4 Howard Street in Burlington.

Take a gander at the photos below from that wicked weekend. Then take a look at James Gero's Artful Word video.
(We particularly enjoy minutes 66:00-68:00. But boy, was it loud in there!).
