The show includes paintings, drawings, plush, customized toys and collaborations with his wife, artist Kathy Olivas. This exhibit, which integrates Brandt’s signature characters (and some new ones) into backdrops of deserted playgrounds and creepy carnivals, is absolutely beautiful and the result of some serious labor. Both Brandt and Kathie will be in attendance tonight! This show will run through Feb. 27th.
