Circle City Aerodrome's Steampunk Art Show - Call for Submissions

Hello fellow artists and makers,

I want to share an open call for entry to the Circle City Aerodrome's first ever Steampunk Art show.  This is a juried show and will have its opening reception as part of the city-wide First Friday gallery night on Feb 1, 2013.  We really want to put our best boot forward and in order to do that we need help from all you mad scientists, inventors extraordinaire, artists and makers from all walks to submit your entries for our inaugural exhibit:  ‘Punked: Yesterday’s Tomorrows.

This is where the Circle City (Indianapolis, IN) will get its first ever taste of what we create for the past’s visions of the future and will feature fine craft and art interpretations of the Steampunk movement.  Most folk in Indianapolis have no idea or at best, a very vague idea of what steampunk is.... (You just glue some gears on it, right?)   SO, please help us introduce the amazing creativity of Steampunk Art and Craft to them ( .. and knock 'em outta their boots!)

Circle City Aerodrome is still getting over the fact that both Tempest and Jake von Slatt have agreed to help us jury this inaugural Art Show that will open  just in time for our Grand Masquerade Ball weekend.  Please please feel free to read more about them and how to apply on our website: http://circlecityaerodrome.org/index.php/masquerade/artreception

Application Postmark / email receipt deadline: Nov 26, 2012
Show Location: New Day Meadery in Fountain Square Indianapolis, IN

Splendid!! Professor Elemental

I was sorely dissapointed that I was not able to spend  time with the lovely Professor Elemental at the Steampunk World's Fair this year. I only got the briefest of "Hellos!" in as we passed in the hallway heading to our events. It's nice to see that the Professor is doing well, in fact, everything seems SPLENDID!!

Meredith is having a sale of original art

Our own Meredith Scheff is having an art sale to help in acquisition of a place to live. Meredith work is strange and wonderful, it manages to be colorful and dark at the same time.

This is all original art, go check it out here:

Oxford Steampunk Exhibition Documentary

A very nice documentary about the Steampunk exhibition at the Oxford Museum of the History of Science.

This exhibition was curated by Art Donovan who you will recall did a similar gallery show in the Hamptons last year.

Steampunk Art @ Oxford

The Steampunk exhibition at the Oxford Museum of the History of Science opened yesterday!

Art Donovan writes:

I promise you that the art in this show is nothing like you have ever seen! Not to be "booster-ish" or anything, but I've had to wire my jaw closed after seeing the artist's works in the completed installation.

Dr. Bennett and his Museum Staff have presented an exhibition that is truly unique, culturally significant and absolutely unrivaled. (The private opening party tonight was astounding). Location: Broad Street, Oxford.

WIRED also has a nice slideshow with images of the artwork on display!

Work Corset - Inspired by Carhartt Work Clothing

San Francisco artist Nifer Fahrion created this work clothing inspired corset to wear at Burning Man this year. I particularly like the cordless drill holster, the one I have clips to my belt and does nothing but pull my pants down.

From Nifer's site:

For the past year, I've desired to create a garment which blends the femininity and elegance of a corset with the durability and ruggedness of a workbelt. Recently, I shared my idea with the talented seamstress and designer Robynne Winchester of Tulgey Wood Designs. She was instantly excited about the concept and agreed to collaborate to make it a reality.
