“A Product of Design” // Exhibition at the Scion Installation LA Gallery

Posted in Artists, Events, Friends by Gluekit on September 10, 2011

Gluekit (the team behind Part of It)  is curating the show “A Product of Design” at the Scion Installation LA Gallery in Culver City. The show will be on view from September 17 to October 8, 2011 with an opening reception on September 17 which we’d love for you to attend! Please RSVP here.

The show is a celebration of the passion projects of designers we love, and we’ve brought together a number of our favorite designers to showcase their products and artwork. Part of It artist Geoff McFetridge will have some original artwork in the show– he’ll be showing with the skateboard company Solitary Arts, which he runs with Yong-Ki Chang. SA Family members Jef Hartsel, Bob Lake,  photographer Isaac McKay-Randozzi (Color Magazine, SLAP, Juxtapoz), and Mark Kushimi (owner of Contrast Magazine out of Hawaii) will also be showing their work.

Other folks in the show are: Ben Blanc Studio, Booji, Best Made Company, Colophon Foundry (all the way from the UK!), JB Classics, Hugo & Marie, Various Projects, and The Quiet Life.

Part of It artists and friends ///DIY will be in a new show at the Scion Installation L.A. with a fantastic coterie of artists (including Emily Forgot, Ill-Studio, Andy Rementer, and Mario Hugo) under the management of Monsieur L’Agent. Framed around an homage to magazine cover pioneer George Lois, the show asks artists to wrestle with the concept of “The Big Idea.”

Mike Perry Eames Rocker - Patterns Found in Space 2009 exhibition

Part of It contributor Mike Perry has a new solo exhibition, The Patterns Found in Space, up at Giant Robot in New York City. The show features more than twenty new works by Mister Perry, who is a master pattern-maker, author, illustrator, and all-around prolific graphic whiz. The show includes a pair of beautiful hand-illuminated Eames Rockers as well as a tasty assortment of original art works and prints.

Mike has a special place in the Part of It pantheon as one of our very first participants. His “It’s Just You and Me” t-shirt is an important work in the Part of It catalog, and we’re super glad to see him and his work in the spotlight!

Best Before October 26, 2008

Posted in Artists, Events, Sales by Gluekit on October 21, 2008

We’re very happy to announce that Part of It will be celebrating Daniel Eatock’s “Best Before October 26, 2008” project, which he created to coincide with the closing of his exhibition, Extra Medium, at Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania (just outside of Philly, PA). We’re hosting a sale of Eatock’s “Alphabet” shirt at a special price but the sale will end on October 26.

Eatock’s new book, Imprint, which features his life’s work thus far was just published, and, to our happy surprise, we learned this weekend that it includes his Alphabet design for Part of It!

A Very Nice Snapshot!

Posted in Events by Gluekit on October 16, 2008

We thought we’d share a recent snapshot from the It’s Nice That “Original Format” Exhibition, currently on display at the Plymouth College of Art and Design. We blogged about it earlier this month, and were so excited to see the wonderful pictures that the It’s Nice That crew have made available of the show. This was one of our favorites from the set, and features one of the tote bags that Genevieve Gauckler designed for Part of It (lower right)!
