“Portaits Of Awesomeness” Art Show Opening Mon 10/20 in Hoboken


On behalf of  Northern Soul and the Northern Soul Art Project’s curator Narciso Espiritu, Jr., I invite you to the opening reception for “Portraits Of Awesomeness: The Pop-Culture Art of Craig Mahoney” on Monday, October 20th at 7pm. Nearly two dozen new, original drawings and paintings celebrating my favorites from movies, music, TV, and comedy will be on display, with most being shown publicly for the first time.

All artwork will be available for purchase. In addition, there will be drink specials, free snacks, and some of the movies and music that inspired the artwork playing throughout the night. I’m also hearing a rumor that there will be cookies. No promises, though.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys promoting other people’s work (and if you are, THANKS!), here’s the link to the facebook event page and below are some promo pics for your Instagram, twitter, and facebook feeds. Feel free to tag me on instagram (@yerolepalCraiggers) or twitter (@CraigMahoney) and hashtag it #PortraitsOfAwesomeness (Is that a long hashtag? Yes. Do I have a better idea? No. We’ll just have to live with it.).

Deal Of The Day: Luke Skywalker painting, “R2, You Stay With The Ship”

As I get to work on a number of new pieces (which I’ll be posting shortly), I’ve decided to start offering a “Deal Of The Day” on certain pieces to try and clear out some inventory. I don’t know if I’ll be doing this everyday, but the deals themselves will only last that long. Today’s is my painting of Luke Skywalker crash landing in the swamps of Dagobah during Empire Strikes Back, entitled “R2, You Stay With The Ship”.  It is an original, one-of-a-kind 36″ x 24″ acrylic painting on canvas, and can be yours today for only $400, down from $550. This is sure to please and class up the home of any Star Wars fan. Click the “Buy Now” button to purchase.
