"Peppermint Doorstop" Matthew Winters + + + + +
N Space (905 Congress) On view during open hours every Wednesday 5:30-8PM and by appointment
Peppermint Doorstop is document to events that happen out of the public eye. A collection of stolen moments that can only be attained by certain levels of access and timing. The exhibition consists of photography, video, sculpture and mixed media. After viewing Peppermint Doorstop you will be affected. So much so that you will scream out "i cannot believe that Matthew John Winters willed this show into existence!"
Matthew John Winters was born in St. Louis, schooled in Chicago, and resides in Austin, TX. www.matthewjohnwinters.com
“Teetering with metaphor, iconically depicted, and touching subjects of mass consumption, complex designography, the stupid, and the sublime. It was at this point that I basically told y'all to buy [Matthew John Winters'] artwork because he is dedicated and you would be happy with the investment.” – art writer J. Haley

"Texas Crude" Matthew Winters + Group Show + + + +
Co-Lab Project Space
Exhibition and Dirty limerick poetry reading
TEXAS CRUDE will be an offering of artwork that is rude, raunchy and generally explicit. Artists will come from a variety of backgrounds and the artwork will have a range of media and content (as long as that content is vulgar and of a revolting nature).
Anyone is welcome to join in the show.
There are two ways to participate in TEXAS CRUDE, the first is to send or deliver work to either Co-Lab or the curator Matthew Winters. The deadline for submissions for TEXAS CRUDE is Friday April 23rd, 2010. Any form of two-dimensional work in any media is welcome. Please try not to exceed 3’ x 3’ (36” x 36”). If you are going to deliver work please make email arrangements with the curator or the Co-Lab staff. Make sure to package your artwork competently and include any special instructions so that we can get your work back to you safely. Also make sure to include contact information so that you may get the credit that you deserve.
Call or Email to Arrange Delivery:
The second way to participate in TEXAS CRUDE is to attend one of the four Study Hall sessions that will lead up to the Saturday opening. In these Study Halls I will create a calm and soothing atmosphere full of drawing spaces and materials. While in the Study Hall you should be free from the pressures of everyday life so that you can really let the sleazy and obnoxious ideas flow.
The four Study Halls will Have a theme each night (although the theme does not have to be adhered to, it is recommended for maximum crudeness). The themes are as follows:
Tuesday, April 20, 7-10PM : Butts
Wednesday, April 21, 7-10PM: Boobs
Thursday, April 22, 7-10PM: Boners
Friday April 23, 7-10PM: Political Figures
If you wish to have your drawing for sale in TEXAS CRUDE please let us know. Write the words “I would like to sell this piece” with a price and include it with your artwork. There will be staff on hand to take sales of cash or check. Artists will receive 100% of the sale of their artwork. If the artist does not wish to receive payment for his or her artwork then any profit will be donated to Co-Lab.
If there are any additional questions please write to Matthew Winters at: firstname.lastname@example.org
