Limited Paper: Bottleneck Gallery’s THE GANG’S ALL HERE Hits New York City Like a Giant Teleporting Space-Squid this Friday; See Preview Images Here!

     November 15, 2012

Here at Limited Paper, we’re big fans of the folks at NYC’s Bottleneck Gallery:  they’re quick to respond to email inquiries, always a pleasure to work with when coordinating coverage, and I almost never wake up in the middle of the night to find them looming over me naked, disoriented, and  brandishing a knife (unlike some Galleries we could mention).  This month, the Bottleneck guys have been hard at work getting back to “business as usual” in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and—as you might expect—that’s been quite the project.

Later this week, all that hard work pays off with the opening of Bottleneck’s latest Gallery show, a team-themed exhibition they’re calling The Gang’s All Here.  Wanna find out when you need to swing by Bottleneck Gallery this weekend, see some of what they’re selling, and learn where and when you can buy these prints if you’re not gonna be on-hand for the opening?  It’s all after the jump, folks.

I’ll need to go back and do the math if we want to be 100% certain of it, but I think that Bottleneck Gallery’s The Gang’s All Here—a team-themed exhibition opening this Friday featuring new artwork from Jay Shaw, Godmachine, New Flesh, Laurent Durieux, and a number of other Limited Paper regulars—is the 1,000,000th gallery showcase of 2012.  For lovers of “badass artwork based on our favorite films, TV shows, and other pop culture ephemera”, that’s great news.  For lovers of “not being broke all the time due to a crippling poster addiction”, well… it might just be time to examine your priorities.

But let’s stay on-message:  we’re here today to discuss Bottleneck’s upcoming The Gang’s All Here exhibition, which opens this Friday at their Brooklyn-based Gallery.  And even if you are the type of collector who’s starting to get a little worried about the tsunami-sized influx of new posters arriving every week, we think you’ll approve of the batch that’s being delivered via Poster World’s latest showcase:  there’s precious little filler here, and some of the stuff—particularly the pieces from Durieux, Godmachine, and Anthony Petrie—seems straight-up vital.

After the show opens this Friday we’ll probably have a more in-depth writeup for you (look for that on Friday evening or Saturday morning, just before Bottleneck’s online sales kick off), but for now we’ve got a number of preview images for you to dwell on.  Let’s take a look at some of what Bottleneck Gallery’s going to be dropping this Friday:

  • Watchmen by Anthony Petrie
  • The pic on the left is what the print looks like with the lights on…
  • …while the pic on the right shows off the print’s Glow-in-The-Dark layer
  • Holy shit

  • The Breakfast Club by Cuyler Smith
  • Set of 5 posters, each based on one of the film’s five leads
  • This is what the set would look like, side-by-side…

  • Stand By Me by Clint Wilson

  • The Dark Crystal by Godmachine
  • (head explodes)

  • Toy Story by Hillary White
  • Guaranteed to inspire nightmares in your child’s bedroom within 24 hrs of hanging

  • Super Troopers by Ian Glaubinger

  • Hook by Jason Liwag
  • Copies of this print have been signed by the dude who played Rufio
  • No, really

  • A Clockwork Orange by Jay Shaw

  • A Game of Thrones by JP Valderama

  • The Wizard of Oz by Laurent Durieux
  • The orange-tinted version is the regular,
  • The other one’s the variant
  • (Bottleneck requested we set the record straight on that point; don’t believe otherwise)
  • The Simpsons by Kyle McCoy
  • Better start clearing some wall space; this thing is enormous
  • That’s 140,000 beads you’re looking at, Chuckles:  what’d you do today?

That’s all we got for the time being, folks, but…well, we’re pretty damn impressed thus far.  As you can probably tell from some of the images, some of these pieces are OG’s, while others are screenprints and/or giclees.  All of them will be going on sale at Bottleneck Gallery’s Brooklyn, NYC location this Friday evening, and everything that’s still on the shelves (walls?) come Saturday morning will be going up for sale online via the Bottleneck Gallery website around noon, EST.

We’ll have a little bit more coverage from this show for you once we get to the end of the week (we’re also going to be revealing yet another giveaway at the same time, for a very limited edition print that’s dropping at The Gang’s All Here on Friday).  We’ve also got the results from our last giveaway to attend to later this week, along with whatever other coverage we can dig up for your reading pleasure.  As always, if you’re an artist or gallery with artwork you’d like to see featured on Limited Paper (or if you’re just some lucky bastard who happened to overhear a bit of poster-related gossip while standing in the bushes outside Martin Ansin’s house) we wanna hear from you!  Email Limited Paper directly at LimitedPaper@gmail.com, and be sure that you’re following us on Twitter via @LimitedPaper for ongoing commentary, news updates, giveaways, and more!
