Tall Tales: Collaborative Projects by John Casey and Friends

Now on view at Swarm Gallery in Oakland is 'Tall Tales' a showing of collaborative works by artist John Casey and a diverse variety of his friends and family. Consisting of two parts; "Call and Response" and "Hands & Pants", the show examines the relationship between Casey and his writer/wife Mary Kalin-Casey ("Call and Response") and over forty of Casey's artist peers ("Hands & Pants".) For the first, husband and wife duo played off their differing mediums, presenting a series of illustrated stories. For "Hands & Pants," Casey drew almost fifty pairs of hands or pants on blank boards, allowing his talented peers to fill in the blanks. Get a look at the collabs by Mary Kalin-Casey, Josh Keyes, Derek Weisberg, Amy Casey and Gina Tuzzi, here on Hi-Fructose.
