Exhibition Reflection: Death of a Beekeeper

Here are a few photo highlights from the Death of a Beekeeper exhibition I was in a couple weeks ago. The first couple photos are taken by Jared Korb, and the last few are my own.  The show was put on by Open Book Art Collective, and if you’ve been following my blog or facebook page, you already know about this group.

I really enjoyed being a part of this show. The installation process was crazy, as we had to set everything up and take down within a 72 hour period. But, in the end it all came together and we had over 100 viewers walk through! We  asked everyone to leave a book suggestion for the next show and are starting the voting process now. If you are interested in seeing more photos, a more extensive gallery will be uploaded on the group website by the end of the week.

Don’t miss the next exhibit which will be taking place sometime in April/May 2014!

This is October

thisisoctober_joellegebhardt

I’d have to agree with Anne of Green Gables, that “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?”

I’ve decided to make an illustration at the beginning of each month, until next September 2014. This collage/illustration is dedicated to the month of Canadian Thanksgiving and the Pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin lanterns, pumpkin costumes, pumpkin muffins…I hope you’re not allergic to squash vegetables!

I combined some new drawings with old drawings, a plaid pattern and a Peter Pumpkin-eater illustration from 1918.  I have a lot of projects on the go right now, so this was a fun break for today.

Have a Happy October 8th!
