“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.).

CALL FOR ART: “You Know? For Bad MotherF@$#ers!” Coen/Tarantino Tribute Show

Hey, all you Basterds, Dapper Dan men, vengeful Brides, babynappers, Reservoir Dogs, and others who abide…

I’m sending out the call for art for my next group show at Northern Soul in Hoboken: “You Know? For Bad MotherF@$#ers!” celebrating the films of the Coen Bros & Quentin Tarantino. All pieces submitted must depict characters or scenes from a Coen Bros or Quentin Tarantino movie.

The show will open on Friday, April 19th, with an art reception at Norther Soul. NS takes a 30% commission off of each sale, with 70% going directly to the artist. Deadline for submissions is Friday, April 12th at 5pm. Please e-mail jpegs or png format photos of your work to cm@craigmahoney.com

This is an open call, so feel free to invite any other artists you know to submit.

Thanks! I look forward to seeing your work!
