Feb 1st, 2008 - March 1st, 2008
Step into the world of a true Fanatic this February with Jillian McDonald's video, prints, installation, and live interactive performance. Jillian is fixated on the human obsession with horror film genres, the female role in cinema, and celebrities - turning intimate and horrifying moments into satirical drama. This exhibition will highlight the artist's work from the past five years, which Jillian suggests is best described as "culture-jamming."
The opening for FANATIC was incredible ... so many new faces and especially so many viewers engaged in the work ...
See Jillian's blog for more info and images of the exhibition ...

... And needless to say the TATTOO performance by Jillian was a huge hit!!!
Jillian gave tattoos for 2 1/2 hours ... wow, one-on-one consultations from the artist ... and free body art to-go ... And the artist never stops smiling!!!
Don Crow consults with Jillian on tattoo placement ...
Jillian and Amie Oliver both agree - a beautiful display of celebrity fanaticism ...
Ahhh ... now its Don's turn ...
What a great time we all had ... and it was all about
the love and the art.
Jillian is the best artist to work with ever!!!
