Six years after he started what’s now become a trend of coaster shows in his role at La Luz de Jesus Gallery, Matt Kennedy now offers his latest rendition at Gallery 30 South with “The Coaster Show 2018.” The annual event offers more than 1,000 pieces from hundreds of artists. Approaches include acrylics, watercolors, printmaking, pen, oils, sculpture, ink, and much more.

“Some highly sought, sold-out pieces from past years have resurfaced alongside hundreds of new works to culminate in a show that features nearly 1000 unique, artisanal coasters,” the gallery says. “We’ve also included a significant number of works by artists with disabilities. From autism to loss of limbs, these amazing artists have overcome physical and developmental challenges to create vibrant and soulful works that complement and rival the submissions of well-known, and even blue-chip professionals.”
