Eric Firestone Gallery Presents:
She Sells Seashells By The Seashore
A group exhibition that brings the beach to the gallery in East Hampton, NY.
July 11, 2015 – August 2, 2015 Opening Reception: July 11, 6 – 9 PM
Through various means, each artist in the exhibition emphasizes symbols of Summer. FriendsWithYou’s sculpture, Raisin Bran Sun, depicts Kellogg’s familiar mascot, Sunny, an icon of the brand introduced in 1966. Since then, Sunny has undergone major cosmetic alterations. Today, Kellogg’s still portrays the smiling sun scooping mounds of raisins into every box. For She Sells…, the Los Angeles-based collective re-imagines the American icon away from commodification and towards the original subject: a smiling sun.
She Sells Seashells By The Seashore features artworks by Jim Drain, Chris Johanson, Misaki Kawai, Andrew Kuo, Erik Parker, Tom Sanford, Kenny Scharf, Jen Stark, Eric White, and Eric Yanhker.
