Press release

Hello My Name is Gallery is proud to present two new exhibitions opening on Nov. 14th, 2009.

Demon and the Dirt Bell, a new illustrated fairy tale by Brad Amorosino, follows the aimless quest of two disconnected lovers as they search a dark planet for a mystic bell. Legend says the toll of the bell gives boundless power but the bell is guarded by a giant sleeping demon.

Brad will be debuting the book at Hello with a release party. In addition to copies of the book, which will be on sale at the gallery, Brad will also be showing new drawings related to and inspired by the images in Demon and the Dirt Bell.

Alongside Brad's book and drawings Hello founders and proprietors Jemma Williams and John Bent will debut a large-scale sculptural collaboration. Beach Front Property takes the form of beached whale repurposed into a modest vacation home. A cross between Jemma's Jemmanimals line of plush/soft sculptures and John's paintings and illustration, Beach Front Property allows the audience to enter into a space that is both domestic and feral; at once a home and an improvised habitat.

Demon and the Dirt Bell and Beach Front Property will be on display from Nov. 14-Nov. 22. Hello will be open on Sat., Nov. 14 from 7—10 p.m., and on Sun., Nov. 15 and Nov. 22 from 11 a.m.—2 p.m.
