Crammed Organisms in St. Louis

Here's something for your calender - for anyone St. Louis area looking for some offbeat fun this weekend, go check out the Crammed Organisms show at Cranky Yellow, 2122 Cherokee Street.

It's part of the biggest ever plush exhibition going on every weekend in June and I'm one of the many artists exhibiting. The show this weekend at Cranky Yellow is the second of four plush shows going on this month in St. Louis exhibiting my and other plush artists' stuff. They are showing my hook rabbit, frog Prince, Sasquatch and single parent alien. Unfortunately, I live way out here in L.A. and can't go but if anyone else wants to check it out, it's a total party. Here are the details:

June 13th, 2008 @ Cranky Yellow - Opening 7-11 p.m.

(2122 Cherokee Street! St. Louis, MO 63118) 100+ works of plushie art!
Cranky Yellow's gallery will be filled to the brim with a collection of unique plush art. Browse the exhibition and see pieces from some of the best designers working today!

STL Craft Mafia Outdoor Market!
The STL Craft Mafia is offering up their goods in Saint Louis' ONLY outdoor night-time craft market! Shop and buy local DIY/handmade goods in this awesome outdoor venue (on the side of the Cranky Yellow Building)! Meet and Greet the designers!

The Crammed Organisms Photo Booth!
Bring your camera and take photos in this exclusive photo station! Seriously! What a fun way to remember the night!

Win a Life Sized Big Foot Plushie!
Be sure to be here for a chance to win a life size Big Foot plushie created by Superchick Studio! He is fresh out of the forest and ready for a new home!

Lots of Raffles!
Buy some raffle tickets to win amazing plush and art related prizes! Feel good knowing 100% of the funds raised will go to charity!

Of course, if twisted plush isn't your thing, also going on that night in St. Loius is the Route 66 Festival. I don't know what it is other than the music is "eclectic" and you are supposed to bring your own chair. So what's it going to be? Celebrating concrete or celebrating evil genius seamstresses? The choice should be clear.

I hope the show gives your little Flaky Friends the attention they deserve! You're really coming into your own with this whole stuffed animal enterprise---I have to admit I was a little skeptical when I first saw the manatee, but I should never have doubted you.

For some reason, instead of reading "Crammed Organisms" I read "Crammed Orgasms". Now, THAT would be interesting to go to. Once I found my error...the blog made MUCH more sense. :) Maybe I shouldn't read blogs at 12:30 a.m.???
