Opens Friday, June 21st at 7pm at Gallery 1988: WEST in Hollywood, California.
This show is my way of perpetuating the message people like Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson have dedicated their lives to. There is also a severe lack of incredible space art, and I wanted to change that. I’m really proud of this show, and I hope you guys will have a chance to see it in person.
One of four prints I will have at SPACE! The Gallery Show which opens tomorrow night at 7pm at Gallery 1988:West in Hollywood.
I just got back from the gallery where all of the pieces are being hung and I am REALLY excited about it. So many amazing pieces and a lot of artists who are fresh to Gallery 1988. There will also be a fun little Olly Moss giveaway to the first 50 (give or take a bit, still trying to figure that out) in line. There will also be a raffle for a space themed SUPER of which 50 are available.
It’s going to be a fun night, and a unique experience if you’re a 1988 patron. I’ll be there, along with Tony Moore, Kevin Tong, and a slew of other artists, so come hang out!
You guys, I am thrilled to finally share this with you. It’s the first time I’ve ever curated a show, and it’s a theme that I’m very passionate about. Take a gander at the artist list, get yourself pumped up and come to the show, it’s going to be a stellar time.
Finally a clean enough night to bust out the telescope and snap a couple pictures.
Obviously Jupiter on the top, and on the bottom is Jupiter again, but with enough time to capture the Galilean Moons Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.
If you bust out a pair of binoculars and go outside, look to the East (or straight up in a few hours) and look for what seems to be a bright star. Assuming your binoculars are moderately powerful, you will be able to see Jupiter and those moons.
I’ve been meaning to take this picture for a while. When the moon is low enough in the horizon and after sunset, it gathers a bit of reflected light from the Earth. It’s easy to see with your eyes but difficult to capture with a camera unless you do a long exposure.
