Local artist Sloane Leong contacted me a few weeks ago after a midnight screening of ALIEN at a local drinking theater. She suggested that we do a cosmic sci-fi inspired art show. Drawing inspiration from everything scifi including (but not limited to) the films Alien/Aliens and their masterful conceptual artists Moebius, Syd Mead, Ron Cobb, Chris Foss and Giger, artists were invited to push the boundaries on their visions of the future. SF is a broad genre and kind of hard to nail down but here are a few subjects that artists will explore: space, dystopias, telepathy, androids, robots, aliens, foreign planets, space colonies, synthetic humans or beings, futuretech, cyberpunk, biopunk, interdimensional travel, teleportation.
She has curated an amazing lineup of artists that will be displaying original art and also digital prints for sale. She went even further and contacted a bunch of writers, Sean Witzke, Magen Toole, Melissa Dominic, Valerie Valdez, Stanley Lieber to do some sci-fi fiction that will be published as a zine for the show.
