Magic Pony and TCAF welcome superstar artist, illustrator and toy designer Tara McPherson for a special exhibition and appearance. Narwhal Art Projects will be exhibiting a selection of Tara McPherson's limited edition prints alongside her new series of toys. Tara will hosting a special signing at Narwhal Art Projects on May 8 from 6-8pm as part of our opening reception. The reception will run from 6-9pm. Free.

The compelling paintings and posters of Tara McPherson are a tour-de-force of creative tension, at once heartfelt and heartbreaking. Creating art about people and their odd ways, her characters seem to exude an idealized innocence with a glimpse of hard earned wisdom in their eyes. Recalling many issues from childhood and good old life experience, she creates images that are thought provoking and seductive. People and their relationships are a central theme throughout her work. Tara's array of work includes numerous gig posters for rock bands, including Green Day, Modest Mouse, and Death Cab for Cutie, and advertising and editorial illustrations for a diverse group of clients, as well as the "Ace and Ion" figure set. Her prints and paintings have been exhibited in galleries all over the world.
