Last weekend I trekked out to the Oregon Coast for the opening of my dad, Kurt Hollomon’s All in a Day’s Work group show. The show featured a body of work centered around the theme of chores and the tasks of daily life. Kurt hand selected a group of five current illustration students at PNCA to produce original work for the show. The fact that they’re students is remarkable, in that the work far surpasses what can usually be expected from art school sophomores. This is a group confidently exploring the reaches of artistic voice and style. I’ll keep this short & sweet, to let the images speak for themselves. If you’re road tripping around the Oregon Coast, it’s worth stopping at Artspace. It’s worth it for the opportunity to flip through an amazing collection of sketchbooks. This is the future of illustration here.
All in a Day’s Work is showing from July 14th through September 4th at the Artspace gallery in Bay City, OR. (map)
