Our gallery show for 2017 was “Robots, Rockets and Space Vixens! A Pop Art Sci-Fi Spectacular”. People had been asking for years that we return to where it all started with our “Calling All Robots!” So we went back, but this time included all things Sci-Fi.
The Artist Reception opening was on Friday, September 15, 2017, 6-10pm at the Elgin Artspace Gallery, 51 S Spring St, Elgin, Illinois 60120.
Artwork from over 40 artists was on display. Also included were vintage robot and sci-fi toys, a collection of meticulously crafted robots built from scavenged vintage mechanical items, a seven foot tall TV robot, a five foot tall rocket, a seven foot tall Bender costume and a “Jam” art piece done by multiple artists involved with our group.
Elgin’s Got Robot was on site to demonstrate their hand built robots and explain their competitions.
