SHAWN REED with SOFIA DOMAGA, at the show’s installation.
SHAWN REED grew up in rural Iowa, and is currently pursuing his MFA at the University of Iowa. He has shown his work in New York, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Tokyo.
“His band Raccoo-oo-oon has toured the United States and Europe and he has personally made Iowa City a key destination for touring punk and noise musicians. Reed also runs a small music label called Night People which specializes in limited edition cassette tapes . . ”
He makes his own frames with his dad, who is a carpenter, and he does the banner embroidery with a modified vintage 50’s SINGER sewing machine.
SOFIA DOMAGA is a visiting artist from Berlin.
In addition to the artwork, which is displayed on the specially hand painted walls – for this exhibit, some of Shawn Reed’s small handmade books of drawing ($6) and hand colored T Shirts ($30) are for sale. . . Hanna tells us .. “His one-of-a-kind, silk-screened shirts can be seen in rainbow colors on the bodies of underground music fans across the world” – we believe it !!!
