Kathie Olivas and Obama '08 Show Openings

There were quite a few events happening this past Friday night in NYC, and the two we saw were well worth the time spent waiting in line.

First up was Kathie Olivas' stunning "Uninvited Guests" show at My Plastic Heart. Pretty much the entire show sold out and lots of people waited in line to get stuff signed. Brandt Peters was also there tagging sketchbooks. Additional photos here.

Next up was the incredible "Art + Action = Obama 08" Barack Obama Action Figure custom show at The Showroom NYC at Toy Tokyo. I wasn't one of the participating artists in this show, but I wish I was! There were many gorgeous pieces on display. The good news - due to overwhelming demand, the show has been extended until Oct 22th, so be sure to check it out if you get the opportunity! I've got plenty more shots up at this Flickr set.
