For their third anniversary, Arch Enemy Arts in Philadelphia decided to celebrate with three simultaneous exhibitions: a group show, a customization show, and a print show. The centerpiece of this trifecta is “Imaginary Menagerie: The Arch Enemy Arts Guide to Cryptozoology Vol. 1.” As the long-winded title suggests, Arch Enemy Arts invited a large group of artists to create works based on their chosen mythical beasts. For many of the artists in the show — like Erika Sanada (HF Vol. 31), Naoto Hattori (HF Vol. 35), and Caitlin Hackett (HF Vol. 17) — this theme is already their specialty. “Imaginary Menagerie” opens on April 3, as well as the other two shows, “Stacked” and “Full Bleed.”
“Imaginary Menagerie” full line-up: 100taur, Boy Kong, Caitlin Hackett, Caitlin McCormack, Carisa Swenson, Carly Janine Mazur, David Natale, Erika Sanada, Heather McLean, Julie Filipenko, Keely Reichman, Kelly McKernan, Lara Dann, Leilani Bustamante, Maryanna Hoggatt, Rebecca Yanovskaya, Robert Kraiza, Sean Talamini, Scott Kirschner, Hanna Jaeun, and Veks Van Hillik.
