So much to write about, so little time. Hope to have a full post about my trip to Maine up this week but in the meantime you can visit Corduroy and check out the prints from their Editions of Ten show that opened on September 3rd.
My pieces for the show are wood type compositions printed on a special handmade paper… more to come on that as well.

Very excited to be back at Corduroy in September alongside a humbling lineup of other folks working in print. I’ll be showing two new wood type compositions (editions of 10) available exclusively through the gallery.
Chris and I will both be up in Portland for the opening on September 3rd, stoked to meet some of the other artists in the show and do some exploring over the weekend. First Friday in Portland is a blast so come on up!

Mucho radness going on these days.
THURSDAY 4.29 (TONIGHT) the Distillery Gallery will be hosting the opening reception for the Studio 11 Retrospective show. Studio 11 is the former home of Repeat Press, as well as dozens of other artists over the past few decades. The show will feature works from all former tennants who could be tracked down, as well as a special display of relics from the history of the space. The show will run through may but everybody knows the real fun is at the opening so get over there tonight, 6-9pm.
FRIDAY 4.30 you can relax a bit and head over to Harvard for the current showing in the “Food at 24 Frames Per Second” series - All In This Tea, a documentary following “a tea-obsessed American to the lush Chinese countryside, where he battles bureaucracy and economics to spark an interest in organic tea.”
I’ve been assured that this is a great film and tea will be provided.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY 5.1-5.2 the annual Somerville Open Studios will be happening city-wide, and we wouldn’t be left out of that. Fringe will have its doors open to the public to come check out whatever it is that we do around here, and Autumn Ahn will be painting a mural on the wall next to the studio, live throughout the weekend.
In the Repeat Press shop I’ll have the presses running demos throughout both days, and a blowout sale on old posters – stop in and pick up some prints cheap!
FRIDAY 5.7 this might be a hike for folks in the Boston area but well worth the trip. Friends Fish McGill and Evoker are teaming up for a show at the coolest surf gallery around, Portland’s Corduroy. This flyer gets an early nomination for best flyer of 2010.
Spring has sprung! Get out there and have some fun!
I’ll be showing some pieces from my wood type monoprint series “Welcome To the Human Race” for the duration of February and March at The Blue Room, alongside work by my good friend Robert DaVies. The fine folks over at The Blue Room have been kind enough to host an opening reception tomorrow night – if you’re in the area please stop by!
Tuesday, February 23rd, 7-9pm.
1 Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA
I’m going to have a couple pieces in the POST THIS! rock poster show at Space 242 opening on December 11th. The openings are always fun (thank you Harpoon) but remember to RSVP on the website and show up early because they kick everybody out at 8PM!
“Welcome to the Human Race”, my series of wood type monoprints is currently on display at the Sherman Cafe in Union Square, Somerville. Stop by for a coffee and check out their new all-local market around the corner!
My solo show “Just as long as you are there” at Corduory just came down but they still have a few of the exclusive SURF SKATE ART LOVE prints left in their webstore. Limited to 25 copies, grab one before they’re gone!
Some pictures from my recent solo show at Corduroy in Portland, Maine. More at michaeldacey.com.

I’m hoping to have some pictures from the opening soon but for now here’s a preview of my solo show JUST AS LONG AS YOU ARE THERE that opened last friday at Corduroy in Portland, ME. The opening was a blast and I got to meet a bunch of new friends. The show is up through the end of the month so go check it out!
Solo show of my personal work opens this Friday at Corduroy in Portland. Should you find yourself in the Maine area come on down for beers and high fives.
I have no idea how to pronounce Chris Piascik’s last name, but I do have a sweet gocco print of his that I picked up at Grand a while back. His upcoming show at Chorus looks like it will include a series of larger paintings that as well as the smaller prints that many people are familiar with.
The show opens this Saturday, June 13th, with a reception from 8-11pm. The past two openings have been a blast so be sure to check it out.
