The web preview for ‘Anomalies’, the upcoming beinArt Collective show at Copro Gallery, is now online! Check out the full preview here.
Keep scrolling for a sneak peek of some of the amazing work below.
The show opens this Saturday the 13th of October at 8pm – 11pm and runs until November 3rd.
“Anomalies” will be the third beinArt Collective group show at Copro Gallery, curated by Jon Beinart. The participating artists have been hand picked for their natural disposition towards the strange and deranged. This exhibition will showcase over 50 artists’ interpretations of “Anomalies” and sideshow/carny culture. There will be paintings, drawings and sculptures of subjects that will deviate, distort and mystify. Human oddities, anatomical wonders, freaks, geeks & gaffs. Step right up and peek inside the beinArt Collective’s cabinet of curiosities!

We are not accepting submissions that would require returning artwork to an address outside the continental USA. E-mail jpegs to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “Group Show Submission”
Submissions that do not follow this format will not be reviewed. Do not submit work that is for sale elsewhere or otherwise likely to be unavailable for sale in this show. If you are accepted and any of the pieces you’ve submitted are not available, you will be disqualified. We will not put any of your work in the show, and you will not be invited back. It is not necessary to send a follow up email. If your work is accepted, we will get in touch with you by the second week of February 2012. If your work is accepted, it is expected to be display ready, meaning that paintings must be wired for hanging, and sculptures must be free-standing or pedestaled. We showcase mainly figurative, narrative paintings and unusual sculpture. Our focus is not abstract expressionism and we are not accepting photography, video or digital art, edition prints or environmental installations. Please also bear in mind that wall space is limited, so we are imposing a limit of 24″ on the largest side, and strongly encourage much smaller work.
The annual group show has gone by different names over the years: “Noncommercial Art by Commercial Artists,” “Everything But the Kitschen Sync,” and now, “Laluzapalooza.” It is a gigantic, no-theme exhibition that consistently features work from the freshest and most relevant artists working today. We invite commercial illustrators, graphic designers, tattooists, scenic painters, students, and animators to submit, and sorted through tens of thousands of submissions before finalizing the contributor list. The show is open to all artists we have previously exhibited, as well as to brand-new, undiscovered, and underground talent.
Since opening our doors in 1986, the focus has always been to grant exposure to emerging talent while continuing to showcase our established stars. This important annual exhibition is a wonderful forum for reaching our extensive list of collectors and patrons, and establishing a fan base beyond your circle of regular buyers. Previous shows have featured the biggest names in post-pop contemporary art. This show launches careers, solidifies reputations and has previewed work by artists showcased in the Whitney Biennial. We welcome you to extend this invitation to friends and colleagues. We look forward to your submissions, and wish you all the best of luck.

Copro Gallery presents three exhibitions opening, Saturday, November 10 – December 1. Christian Rex van Minnen has been heralded as the modern Giuseppe Arcimboldo, making his way into the art world armed with old world execution, warm
colors of bittersweet chocolate and burgundy velvet. Composition and color serve only as thin veils which barely distract from the dripping hordes of redundant flesh and undecipherable realms of deformation. Neo-Grotesquism springs forth with a fiery vengeance, offering beautiful reconstructions of hideous fungus, tumor-like protrusions, and flora and fauna, all married into modern yet simultaneously archaic portraiture. Enter a world where ugliness and beauty merge as one, challenging the narrow definitions of both.

Adam Miller’s “Among the Ruins”
For this exhibition Adam has been on a year long painting odyssey moving into mostly larger format paintings, all inspired by the scale and narrative of Renaissance painting and the scale of New York City. Adam’s paintings explore the intersection between mythology, ecology and humanism. Visually inspired by baroque and Hellenistic narrative painting they take a polytheistic approach to contemporary folklore, questions of progress and the experience of human narrative in the face of technological change and the
struggle to find meaning in a world poised between expansion and decay.
The characters of Distant Shore find themselves in a state of transition. Longing and unspoken ambition places their core elsewhere, at odds with their familiar surroundings.
At the border of the known and the beyond, they stop and contemplate an uncertain future.
Billy Norrby is a New York based artist. After graduating from SVA, Billy Norrby’s artwork has been featured in a multitude of galleries across the states and Europe. His work has also been seen in several Illustration annuals such as Spectrum, 3×3 and at the Society of Illustrators.

Black Magick?The Art of Chet Zar presents, for the very first time, a chronicle of Chet Zar’s eclectic career. From his beginnings in the Hollywood special-effects industry to his establishment as a widely respected fine artist, Chet’s unique world of monsters has fascinated and influenced those in fields as varied as tattooing, music and art academia. Now, through this publication, Chet gives us unprecedented access to his story. In addition to Chet’s own reminiscences, this book offers contributions from creative forces who run the retrospective gamut of Chet’s career, including Paul Booth (renowned tattooist), Jovanka Vuckovic (award winning author, filmmaker and former editor of Rue Morguemagazine) and Guillermo del Toro (film director).
Featuring over 150 full-color images of his paintings, sculptures and sketches, plus behind-the-scenes images from his time in the special-effects industry, Black Magick?The Art of Chet Zar is a must-have for anyone who has ever been curious about monsters? or the man behind them.
Born on November 12th, 1967, in the harbor town of San Pedro, CA, Chet Zar’s interest in art began at an early age. His combined interest in horror films and art eventually culminated into a career as a special effects make up artist, designer and sculptor for the motion picture industry, designing and creating creatures and make up effects effects for such films as, “The Ring”, “Hellboy I & II”, “Planet of the Apes” and the critically acclaimed music videos for the art metal band Tool. Zar also embraced the digital side of special effects as well, utitlizing the computer to translate his dark vision with 3D animation for Tool’s live shows and subsequently releasing many of them on his own DVD of dark 3D animation, “Disturb the Normal”.
His artistic influences include painter James Zar (his stepfather and artistic mentor), Beksinski, H.R. Giger, Frank Frazetta, M.C. Escher, Bosch, John Singer Sargent and Norman Rockwell just to name a few.
“Chet’s art is beautiful & scary. His style has a modern twist crashing into a classical approach. I think Chet is a master painter on his way to making a great mark in our little world. Wanna do something smart with your money? Invest in a Chet Zar painting.” ? Adam Jones (TOOL).
