Chris Woods sez, "In light of today's STAR WARS news please check out my STAR WARS-inspired museum-show of paintings.
SANDSTORM will show at The Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotsford, BC in the summer of 2013."
My paintings over the last twenty-four years have looked at the far-reaching effects of mass-produced culture on the individual. They have appeared twice on the cover of Adbusters Magazine and in eighteen solo exhibitions in Canada and the United States since 1988.
Recently, I was invited to exhibit my work at The Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotsford, BC. This show, set to run in the summer of 2013, represents the first time in my twenty-four years as a visual artist that I have been asked to mount a solo exhibition in a museum setting.
Woods is looking to raise $14,000 on Indiegogo to pay for his living expenses, materials, and new tools.

But occasionally, you’ve got assignments that beg for a lot more options than simple […]
Almost everyone has their smartphone in a case of one kind or another. Beyond simple protection, finding a case that can charge your phone on its own, but doesn’t feel like it’s also adding a couple pounds to the phone’s weight is the tricky part.
