Tara McPherson and “Shotgun” Sean Leonard
Hi-Fructose swung by the grand opening of Tara McPherson’s Cotton Candy Machine last weekend in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The space features a extensive selection of McPherson-designed apparel, prints and accessories, and also functions as an exhibiting gallery for the artist and her many friends. To celebrate the debut, Cotton Candy Machine’s inaugural show, ‘Tiny Trifecta’ brought in a large crowd of art lovers and collectors, all clamoring for the 100 pieces of 100 dollar art on the hundredth day of the year. With a selection of original works from artists such as Mark Ryden, Audrey Kawasaki, Jeff Soto, Alex Pardee, Martin Wittfooth and Dave Correia (to name a few), it’s safe to say that the Cotton Candy Machine came out with a bang, and judging by what we’ve been told regarding their upcoming gallery schedule, will certainly be here to stay.
