Coinciding with Todd James' opening at Cooper Cole Gallery this past weekend, Marc Bell opened a new series of works called No Jabronis. Amazing name. From the looks of it, Bell has 4 intricate, amazingly detailed illustrations that look like one book narrative book on paper. We grabbed some of the detailed shots as well as the larger looks at these 18" x 24" ink on paper drawings... get studying kids...

One of our favorite artists, Jen Stark, is set to open a solo show, Vortexural, at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto this Friday, July 5. As the gallery notes, Jen Stark's work is distinct and undeniably recognizable for its cyclical, colourful, op-art attributes. Stark fuels her craftsmanship with inspiration drawn from an interest in mathematics, natural organisms, and outer space. Optical illusions, colour gradations, and repetition play key roles in her sculptural works. The visual outcome is optically alluring and generates an ambiance of the surreal. These bold, colourful installations suggest a fantastical, psychedelic atmosphere and welcomes the viewer into the realm of Stark's imagination.

A long week of art happenings has just concluded in NYC, with The Armory Show being at centerstage. But take a cab ride down to SoHo, and you found yourself at Volta NY, a fair that focused on solo projects from artists represented by galleries from around the world.

Coinciding with his exhibition at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto, the gallery has just released a new Geoff McFetridge print, "Chopping Stripes." We have made no secret that we love the new works from the LA-based McFetridge, and were impressed with his show at Ivory & Black in London this past Fall, and the works at Cooper Cole this month are again quite stunning. This print could make a wonderful holiday gift, hint, hint...

The exhibition will mark McFetridge's first solo exhibition in his native Canada, and will include a limited edition silk screen released in conjunction with the show.

Maya Hayuk has always been one of our favorite artists, and we loved the last time we saw her work in the magazine was our very special Barnstormers issue in December 2009. She is now opening a new set of works at Toronto's Cooper Cole Gallery, opening on September 6, 2012.

Cooper Cole in Toronto is hosting a great line-up in the group exhibition, Zagga Zow, now on display through August 20, 2012. Cooper Cole went into the deep trenches of the urban dictionary to find out what Zagga Zow means, and they came up with "A word with literally no definition." In the meantime, Matt Leines, Larissa Bates, Devin Troy Strother, Marc Bell, Charlie Roberts, John Riepenhoff, James Kirkpatrick, Anders Oinonen, and Sara Clendering are all showcased.

Marc Bell will soon be showing in the group show Zagga Zow at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto, and we thought this was as good time as any to show a few works from one of our favorite illustrators/comic/cartoonists/artists. Apart from creating the comic Shrimpy and Paul, his monograph Hot Potatoe is a must have, and the Canadian artist has been featured in various publications such as Kramers Ergot and The Ganzfeld.
