They say that the purpose of art is to invoke an emotional response. If this is the case, it takes a special type of art to invoke a melee. This past July Mike McGinley approached me about hanging an impromptu show featuring his latest and greatest pop and flash art etched on glass. No promotion, no advanced notice. Within two days every piece was purchased. The mob reached such a frenzy at one point, I was up a ladder trying to hang a piece and customers were bidding and buying before the piece could get properly leveled. Such has been my experience with Mike McGinley and his art etched on window and glass panes.
December 7 at Meadowlark & MegaFauna, Mike McGinley aims to add to a new and fun-filled show presenting one-of-a-kind pop-art etched on glass with, “Keep it Glassy”.
Mike will be presenting all original interpretations of pop influenced imagery and his own creations of flash and street culture, just above the curb. Each piece will be displayed on resourced and upcycled window pane and modified doors with glass installations. Each sized properly to fit a large wall as a series OR individually for the downtown or loft crowd. There are some surprises in play for the show, including LED retro-fitted and back-lit pieces.
Boulder-based Evo Hemp of Hemp Health, Inc., will be in attendance passing health-filled hemp bar samples and cool schwag. DJ Viking Sound Machine will be in the house pushing beats and other audible treats. J Audrey Hair Studio will be offering discount cards for their in-house hair studio. As always the MF Cafe will be selling locally roasted Novo Coffee, Rocky Mountain Sodas, sandwiches by local deli’s and Mom’s famous baked treats.
Keep it Glassy 6 PM-10PM at MegaFauna and continue Keeping it Glassy until midnight in Meadowlark at 2701 Larimer in the North Larimer neighborhood of Greater Five Points.

Today and everyday you make a difference by the decisions you make.
Thank you for supporting local creativity.
My name is Jessica Polzin. I am a designer from Denver currently living in Brooklyn and I have been speaking with Ami Pampas in regards to selling my merchandise through your store. My website is http://www.jessicapolzin.com/ if you’d like to take a look. I am working on having my merchandise professionally photographed and will email you more photos and examples of my work. Ami Pampas said to start arranging things to you. Let me know if you are available to speak. Thank you so much!
Jessica! Actually quite a bit sparked interest. I was waiting on pics that you were most interested in before moving anything forward. You know your work and you know what Denver might like over other items. I’ll take all of this into account and volley over a few ideas. Let’s do this thing!
John! Awesome. Here is a line of t-shirts I think would do well. I am working on macrame bucket bags, macrame totes, and reversible totes. Pictured here are the shirts, they are box top cropped t-shirts with dipped hems. The table runners pictured are the remaining ones, which I think would do well, but might be for a more specific clientele- i.e, older. Also pictured are the remaining quilt bracelets which do very well, and I am working on more as we speak. I will keep up with the pictures. Again, I apologize, my parents in town threw me off for a week. Thank you so so much! Lets definitely do this thing!
p.s- your store looks great b.t.w. Great FB posts!!!
