“I had this idea that it would be really fun to do a screen-print show of posters for B-movies, kind of offbeat, unusual movies,” explains Octopoda’s Scott Bailey. “There’s a lot of people that do it for Oscar movies, or more popular cult movies, but no one that I know of has done anything like this.” Chances are no one ever will again, either, and, accordingly, these are limited-edition posters. That means that if you’ve been aching for a gorgeous, artistic interpretation of the cinematic majesty of I Am Omega, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies or Bigfoot, this is probably your only chance to get one.
The show opens at 5 p.m. at Studio 12 Gallery, 209 Kalamath Street, #12, and runs for one week. For more information, visit thisisoctopoda.com.
