Baby Tattooville 2011

If you’re interested in pop surrealism, you won’t want to miss Baby Tattooville this year. It’s the five year anniversary of the event. Impresario Bob Self is inviting back some of the artists who have participated over the years, plus some exciting surprises.

The event, which occurs from October 7-9, will happen at the unique Mission Inn in Riverside California, where the Riverside Art Museum will be doing an exhibition of lowbrow artwork.

I attended Baby Tattooville a couple of years ago, and I had fun meeting some GJ blogreaders—I ended up doing sketches of everyone. If you’re interested, you’d better hurry; there are only 14 spaces left!  I’ll be returning to Baby Tattooville as part of my Fall 2011 southern California tour.

Here’s how Bob Self puts the pitch:

“Baby Tattooville provides a unique opportunity for a few enthusiastic collectors (like yourself) to spend a weekend with an all-star lineup of celebrated artists. Without the time constraints of a typical personal appearance, or the crowd control issues of a standing-room-only event, artists and collectors will have a weekend-long opportunity to discuss and explore their mutual interests. Original work will be created and celebrated around-the-clock; no one will leave empty handed. If you would like to receive information and updates about Baby Tattooville 2011, please join our mailing list below.”
