The official blog for everything relating to the former Strychnin Crew & Urban Nation
Once again, the latest opening here at Strychnin Gallery was a great success! Everyone who visited throughout the night was blown away by the quality of the artwork by Jennybird Alcantara, Bethany Marchman & Edith Lebeau.
“The Red Thread” opened with several pieces already sold, and there was plenty of interest in all the artworks. Visitors came from all over Berlin, and as far away as Austria and England, to see the show!
The evening was so nice a crowd gathered on the street outside
The great weather meant that there were a lot of people out on the streets, and plenty of people came in as they passed.
The back room got a lot of attention too, with people checking out works from previous shows such as “Nuclear Religion”, “Midsummer Night’s Madness” and “Bombs Away”

It was great to have Edith on hand to talk to people about her artwork, and she tells us that despite being quite shy, she had one of the best times she’s ever had at an opening!
Finally, a look at the awesome catering for the night – miniature cupcakes baked by Iris! There were two different flavours, chocolate or vanilla, and topped with pink or yellow icing and sugar sprinkles. They were so good, they didn’t last long!
Along with the other websites who wrote about the show “The Red Thread” is also featured on the Hi-Fructose blog here
The show runs until August 30th, with the new show “A Space In All The Noise” – new works by Jason Shawn Alexander & Gene Guynn, opening on September 4th. There will also be a special signing by Jason, who is know for his work as an illustrator for comics such as “Abe Sapien – The Drowning” written by Mike Mignola the creator of Hellboy!
