ARTIST OF THE MONTH

I Think It

I Think It's Gonna Be a Long, Long Time

by Amber Allen
18 in. W x 15 in. H (framed)
14 in. W x 11 in. H (giclee only)

An astronaut in a vintage silver spacesuit holds his head in his hand with apparent exasperation or despair. The interpretation is up to the individual, but as many of the conflicts and foibles in play during the first space age seem to be heating up again, the themes for this piece were the artist's hopes that we would learn from the past, and avoid repeating the same mistakes in our present.

Each fine art print is one of a kind, embellished with added details painted personally by the artist for an entirely unique artwork.

Available unframed or framed.
Signed, open edition, embellished giclee on art paper.

T-Minus

T-Minus

by Amber Allen
13 in. W x 21 in. H (framed)
9 in. W x 17 in. H (giclee only)

The nostalgia of a classic toy is combined with dramatic stage lighting that lends it an air of anticipation. The retro rocket feels like it could almost take off, like the way as a child your toys could spring to life in your imagination.

Each fine art print is one of a kind, embellished with added details painted personally by the artist for an entirely unique artwork.

Available unframed or framed.

Wax On

The artist conveys the feeling of looking up at the bright full Moon, its shine almost enough to obscure its valleys and craters. The original painting has thick paint and varied texture, and the the artist has enriched this print with the same qualities.

Each limited edition fine art print is one of a kind, embellished with added details painted personally by the artist to enhance color and texture, so as to evoke the brilliance of the fully revealed Moon.

Available unframed or framed.

Amber Allen is a contemporary painter whose work combines her love of scientific theory, space travel, science fiction, and her Jewish heritage. Always on the lookout for fun yet thoughtful subjects, she favors bold colors, and explores the connections between our past and our future, with a current focus on space age themes as a metaphor for the progress of the human condition. Working primarily with oil paints, she uses a combination of palette knife and brushwork to give her work texture and interest.


Born in Indiana in 1992, but relocating to many different places around the US growing up, she completed her first still life painting at age fifteen and from that moment knew that she would become an artist. A graduate of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Allen has exhibited her work in solo and group shows in California and South Carolina, and paints full time at her studio in the San Francisco Bay Area.



MICHAEL COLLINS SIGNING UPDATE

After several delays caused by unexpected conflicts in Mike Collins' very busy schedule, we now have a revised signing date during the fourth week of July, and hope it will stand with no further delays. With only two weeks between the signing and Spacefest, we will then be extremely busy packing and preparing for the show, so will not be able to ship all of the Collins orders until after Spacefest, but will ship what we can before then. Thank you for your patience.

IN MEMORY OF RANDY CLAMONS

We lost a member of our Spacefest and Novaspace family on June 4th, 2019. Randy Clamons had been a part of Kim and Sally Poor's life since the late 70's, and he watched Kelsey and Nathan Poor grow up. He did so much for us, and we will be a little lost without him for a while. Please bear with us while we try to cope while grieving this major loss. R.I.P. Randy. We love you and miss you.

Randy's friends and family have decided to paint a mural in honor of him on the wall behind The Hut's stage, where his band played every week. If you want to help contribute, here is the gofundme campaign.
