James Flames at NOTSTOCK

NOTSTOCK is stoked to have James Flames as its guest. James works and resides within the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC, but was born and bred in Brooklyn, NY. His artwork has been featured in galleries near and far — from London to L.A., NY to NC. He creates rock posters for some of the top touring bands out on the road today — posters which he screen prints by hand in his little studio tucked away in the woods.

James will give a presentation of his work on Friday (Sept. 13) at 9 a.m. in Aleshire Theatre, Hartnett Hall.

James will also screen print live all day Thursday through Saturday (Sept. 12-14) in the Beaver Dam in the Student Center.

Billy Baumann of Delicious Design League

NOTSTOCK is honored to have Billy Baumann of Delicious Design League as its guest. Billy hails from Chicago where he creates gorgeous, crazy, awesome posters, art prints, and other illustration and design work.

Delicious Design League was started in 2006 by two friends, Jason Teegarden-Downs and Billy Baumann, in Chicago, Illinois. With over ten years of experience in the design and ad biz they started Delicious simply as a rock poster design/screenprinting hobby but by 2008 it had quickly grown into a full-time design and illustration studio. Over that span they had gone from designing rock posters for bands you’ve never heard of for lunch money to designing and illustrating for some of the most recognizable brands in the world.

Billy will give a presentation of his work on Thursday (Sept. 12) at noon in Aleshire Theatre, Hartnett Hall. 


Billy will also screen print live all day Thursday through Saturday (Sept. 12-14) in the Beaver Dam in the Student Center.

His work will be for sale at the event and on display at 62 Doors Gallery & Studios, downtown Minot, where the NOTSTOCK closing reception will be held Saturday (Sept. 14) at 7 p.m.

Free and open to the public.

 




Jessica Christy - Workshops, Presentation, and Printmaking

NOTSTOCK is thrilled to have Jessica Christy as one of its guest artists. Jessica is a native North Dakotan, receiving her MFA from the University of North Dakota. Jessica has shown her work extensively both regionally and nationally, earning numerous awards. Working mainly in lithography, she is proudly venturing into the world of silkscreen printing.

Artist Statement: Coexistence of the indigenous and non-indigenous has been grounds for scenarios played out in everything from politics to Hollywood. While the historic indigenous tendency is to live tradition, the non-indigenous inclination is to be actively contemporary. This contemporary - in the American sense - is a life of popular culture and living the now. My work explores the juxtaposition of these two cultural conditions.

Jesisca will give a presentation of her work on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. in Aleshire Theatre, Hartnett Hall.

Jessica will also screen print live Saturday, Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Beaver Dam in the Student Center, and hold 90-minute screen-printing workshops on Thursday and Friday, Sept 12-13, at 9 a.m., 10:45 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.

Her work will be on display at 62 Doors Gallery & Studios, downtown Minot, where the NOTSTOCK closing reception will be held Saturday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m.

Free and open to the public.

Dancing, Dazzling Beads

MSU will host the Dancing, Dazzling Beads exhibit during NOTSTOCK, on loan from the North Dakota Museum of Art. The exhibit will be in the Missouri Room on the third floor of the Student Center September 12 & 13 from 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and September 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the Minot State University campus.

Dancing Dazzling Beads consists of work by today’s leading contemporary beaders from across the United States and Canada. It is a rich, vibrant, and fun exhibition for the whole community. Visitors will be treated to both wall and floor pieces, and contemporary and work based in bead history. The history of beads is a fascinating history. Beads have been traded around the world for centuries. When White traders moved into the American West, they brought beads along, stashed away to be traded for pelts. Victorian women and folk artists always beaded but it wasn’t until the last few decades contemporary Western artists turned to beads. They recognized that through accumulation, beads and more beads could be amassed into works of art, making whole galleries dance with reflected light.

Free and open to the public.
