    Main image

    Thank you so much to everyone for helping us reach our goal! We are now well on our way to preparing everything for the trip.

    First reveal! Here is a CAD WIP of the Tiny Gallery case! Isn’t it sexy? We have been working with top gun industrial designer Andrew Wallace who has done a brilliant job to realise the vision of the gallery. We are so excited. Some little finishing details still to finalise and after that will go into production later this week!

    Just a reminder, that further updates will be done through our blog, so please follow us to track our progress (we will transition to using this solely soon):

    We have just sent out our brief to artists! And things are well under way with the design of the cabinet. We will post an update on this once we have some more complete visuals. We are fizzing to see everyone coming together.

    In the previous update we identified that we were still in talks with some artists and we now have a 100% confirmed lineup (for now). We will be able to take more from our waiting /wish list if we make it to $4,000 (only $750 off now!). If you are one of those we have talked with, hold fire, we will do our best to get there! And please spread the word!

    To introduce our last phenomenal six, Denise Fort, Harry Culy, Erin Forsyth, Michael Kennedy, Meghan Geliza and Seymour!

    They join our lineup to make the nice round number of 30!

    These 6 join our previously announced 24 artist:

    Nigel Roberts, Jem Yoshioka, Laura Shallcrass, Alaina Rhind, Hadley Donaldson, Garry McLanachan, Mica Still, Beck Wheeler, Richard Kuoch, PodgyPanda, Paul Shih, Devon Smith, Jarrod McCutcheon, Grimoire, Pinky Fang, Kelly Spencer, Sean Duffell (aka Ghstie), Jake Mein, T?NS Williams, Greg Straight, Ninja Bears NZ (aka Jenna Adam), Ema Frost, Capilli Tupou, Adrian Vercoe, and Otis Frizzell!

  • Our finalised line-up (for now)     18 August 2014
    Main image

    We are have been so looking forward to announcing our third and (at this stage) final lot of artists to our total epic line-up. Before I go on to mention who they are just a wee note …

    Up to this stage, Colleen and I have tried really hard to be as inclusive as possible. Unfortunately now we are in a bind and at capacity with the number of artists we can take. Originally we had penciled in slots for 6-8, doh!, but there are just some many fantastic lowbrow artists out there (and many many more, trust me there is a bunch more either we are talking with, want to approach and have waiting).

    Our aim with reaching further stretch goals however, is to take more artists with them. We really need your guys help to be able to do this so please share the project where you can to family, friends, and colleagues.

    Please, please please, if interested artists do want to get in touch with us though, email me scott (at) ajollygoodshow.com. If we do reach the next stretch targets we can seriously consider taking more artists along on the adventure.

    Ok, enough chatter, lets introduce our 10 new artists:

    Kelly Spencer, Seal Duffell, Jake Mein, Tane Williams, Greg Straight, Jenna Adam, Ema Frost, Capilli Tupou, Adrian Vercoe and Otis Frizzell!

    Pow! Zam! Pop! We are at 24 artists now! Amazing.

    These 10 join our previously announced artists:

    Beck Wheeler, Podgy Panda, Paul Shih, Devon Smith, Jarrod McCutcheon, Grimoire, Pinky Fang, Hadley Donaldson, Mica Still, Nigel Roberts, Laura Shallcrass, Alaina Rhind,Garry McLanachan, and Jem Yoshioka.

    What a line-up! I need a cup of tea and a biscuit, i’m blown away.

  • Amended stretch goals     18 August 2014

    In the spirit of this adventure being truly inclusive, we have approached and taken on a lot more artists than we has originally planned. We currently have a line-up of 19 artists, instead of the initially pencilled 6-8! doh!

    We love this, but unfortunately the logistics of some of our stretch goals are no longer feasible. So we have had to do a slight rejig to accommodate this charge.

    We see this a living project and trying to refine things as we go along to present the best showcase we can!

    Here are our slightly amended stretch goal (still subject to change):

    + $500 Promotional material (one or two promotional items for the exhibition - postcards, stickers)

    + $1500 Support for 4-6 more artists, extra baggage charges, professional photography of art items

    + $3000 Promotional booklet (printing)

    + $4500 Collaborative promotional material (eg. sticker packs, patches, enamel pins) with some product allocation to artists

    + $8000 Bring the exhibition home and organise a mini, traveling exhibit in four supporting location and sponsorship by boutique gallery outlets in each location

    + $10,000 Self-published book documenting the Tiny Traveling Gallery and profiling the artists involved

    + $20,000 Self-published book documenting the Lowbrow art scene in New Zealand and the Tiny Traveling Gallery

    + $35,000 Internet-based film documenting the Lowbrow art scene in New Zealand

    Main image

    We are elated to announced our second lot of artists to our already stellar line-up. Introducing: Hadley Donaldson, Mica Still, Nigel Roberts, Laura Shallcrass, Alaina Rhind,Garry McLanachan, and Jem Yoshioka. How about that! Fizzing! You can see their work on the gallery tab. We have reached now our first stretch goal but really would love to take this further in order to take more artists with us on the journey. If you haven't had chance to have a look check it out or maybe forward it on to someone who might dig it! A reminder of our first announcement of artists: Beck Wheeler, Podgy Panda, Paul Shih, Devon Smith, Jarrod McCutcheon, Grimoire, PINKY FANG! Zing!

  • THANK YOU, we've done it!     10 August 2014

    Hello, Firstly a big THANK YOU we’ve done it!

    We are so excited and working hard to make some amazing backer rewards to really show how grateful we are. We have some very cute surprises up our sleeves so keep an eye out for updates in the coming few days. To start with we’ve made a little celebration animation (try saying that fast). You might have noticed an earless white cat pop up in our first film, let us introduce you to ‘Da Nubs’ a white rescue cat who’s owned by one of the artists we’re representing. Nubs is no ordinarily cat she runs ‘Kitty Gang’ with her owner Pinky Fang and has a following of 60+ who have her gang patch tattooed on them. One of rewards you get for backing us is exclusively getting to be introduced to the artists and their stories. Anyway back to Nubs who’s so excited we got funded she’s had her own private dance party, you can watch at the link below:

    Since the project was released on Friday we have been touching base with a number of new artists and spaces interested in taking part or exhibiting the ‘tiny gallery’ this is all really brilliant but we can’t do these things without hitting a couple more of our stretch goals.

    $2,500 covers the basic cost of building the traveling gallery (we’re working with an industrial designer and it’s going to be awesome). Transporting it from location to location and getting together some very basic promotional items for the artists taking part. Below are our overfund goals. It would be truly fantastic to include more artists in the line up and be able to take the show around New Zealand. If you know anyone else who’s passionate about the arts please quickly send them a link to the film as they might be interested in helping us bring the exhibition home.

    Overfund Goals

    + $500 Promotional material (one or two different promo items from artists - postcards, business cards)

    + $1500 A series of promotional material (collaborative promo items from artists - sticker packs, patches, zines, enamel pins) with product allocation to artists

    + $2500 Promotional booklet (printing) + extra baggage charges + monetary and product allocation to artists

    + $4000 Support for 4-6 more artists

    + $5000 Bring the exhibition home and organise a mini, traveling exhibit in four supporting location and sponsorship by boutique gallery outlets in each location

    + $10,000 Self-published book documenting the Tiny Traveling Gallery and profiling the artists involved

    + $20,000 Self-published book documenting the Lowbrow art scene in New Zealand and the Tiny Traveling Gallery

    + $35,000 Internet-based film documenting the Lowbrow art scene in New Zealand

    Once again a huge thank you for your help, you have no idea how much it means to us.

    Scott and Colleen
