Gary Hallgren and Oprah Winfrey doing the radio thing, together and happy-like

October 23, 2007

Oprah Winfrey and Gary HallgrenSo In November the fabulous Oprah Winfrey (spell check wants to change Hallgren to Walgreen’s and Winfrey to winsome but I made the executive decision to stick to my own spelling) will be interviewing Gary Hallgren on her radio show. Actually, Oprah and Dr. Mehmet Oz will be hosting Gary together because togetherness is nice. And on her site you can sign up for a free 30 day trial of XM Radio so you can listen live. But first we’d have to tell you the date and first we’d have to know the date because knowledge is power and right now we are power-less to tell you the date. But soonest it will be posted here.

I imagine they’ll be chatting about Gary’s Illustrations for Dr. Oz’s book, YOU: The Owner’s Manual: An Insider’s Guide to the Body That Will Make You Healthier and Younger which was released in May 2005 but you never can tell what else they’ll be talking about. Maybe Quantum Physics or how to make a mean mushroom pie?

Goin’ on Oprah Radio show with Dr. Oz

October 21, 2007

Dr Mehmet Oz has asked me to chat with him on Oprah and friends on XM next Friday Nov. 26…because I illustrate books for him and Dr. Mike Roizen. You The Owner’s Manual, You The Smart Patient, You On A Diet and just released You Living Younger have been big successes in spite of the silly illustrations that have little to do with science and less with medicine. Unless you believe, like the old Reader’s Digest feature, that Laughter is the Best Medicine. My illustrations are also good for you…plenty of corn fiber and easily digestible puns. All done in my best imitation Grey’s Anatomy style, which actually turns out to look nothing like that, but anyway, that’s where it came from.

I recommend a dinner plate for image support…this is action art at its tastiest.
From time to time I get off-the wall concepts for comix that have no commercial potential at all. So I don’t bother to try and sell them. They are accumulating. Don’t you think Garlic-Man would go over big in Gourmet oir Saveur? I don’t think so either.

Artisan’s Cafe here at my fabulous mill at 4 Open Square way in Holyoke has started art shows…first up was self-portraits, so I did Gary Hallgren as he really looks in a hyper-realistic style. Nona Hatay is curator, she of the famous Jimi Hendrix photos.

Just who and what are the Three Berets?

October 16, 2007

*Luke Cavagnac – as the king of lowbrow art, Luke has become well known throughout the Pioneer Valley, (Massachusetts), and across the map for his madcap and zany artworks. From his showroom/studio in Easthampton, Luke makes paintings that cover the spectrum from abstract to more abstract, fantastic to super-fantastic and silly to supercilious, with a lust for color and humor on a grand scale! Luke believes anyone who wants one of his paintings should buy one – don’t you? He has painted literally thousands of paintings and intends to complete at least one or more artworks each day of the rest of his life. See Lukes’ art at – www.invisiblefountain.com and www.claudiamalibu.com

*Gary Hallgren –started drawing tanker trucks at the age of three, progressed to airplanes by grade school and was making up his own cartoons shortly thereafter. Today, Gary’s cartoons grace the pages of some of the preeminent publications in the country including; The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Business Week and New York magazine. He has also illustrated the best selling books, “YOU The Owner’s Manual”, “YOU The Smart Patient” and “YOU on a Diet.” Gary is also famous for his contributions to many underground comics such as Mad Magazine, Marvel Comics, High Times, The Air Pirates Funnies, and Screw magazine.

See Gary’s work at – www.artistsatopensquare.com

*Unique Fredrique – creates a new world of bizarre characters, surreal landscapes and political satires that must be seen to be believed! “Unique”, as he is known in the art world, works in the seclusion of his very private studio in the South of Holyoke (Massachusetts) as he rarely ventures out to eat or socialize – he just makes his own brand of art in his own way. Some of his most famous works include, “Flame Throwing Trout”, “A Day at the Beach with Burning Oil Slick” and “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!” Unique’s art works can be seen at www.uniquefredrique.etsy.com

The Three Berets art show opened on Saturday, September 22 at the historic Open Square mill complex in downtown Holyoke, Massachusetts with throngs of people in attendance. And yes, it’s true that the popularity of the Three Berets is almost more than these legendary characters can bear! Countless pictures were snapped of the Three Berets, countless hands waved at them and countless alluring, moist lips smiled in their direction hoping for just a glance of recognition. Who among the thousands might have guessed that inside these three stylish hats were all the elements of artistic genius at the very height of their creative prowess!

This exhibition will be on display from September 22 to November 18, 2007.

Viewing hours for this exhibition are Mondays to Fridays from 9am to 5pm or at other times by appointment. For directions to Open Square go to http://www.opensquare.com

or Mapquest – 4 Open Square Way, Holyoke, MA 01040
