Kathie Olivas opens her first solo show at her new, co-owned gallery, Stranger Factory, in Albuquerque, NM, tomorrow night, July 1st, with an artist’s reception from 6-9PM. Olivas has been busy preparing for the event, but I snuck in an interview, in which she commented: “My ideal day would consist of hand-painting a giant Elizabeth or customizing a Mega skelve; I love the engineering/problem-solving aspects of what we do.” Well, so do your fans.

Here are some of the enchanting sculptures Kathie Olivas created for the show. The opportunity to purchase these pieces begins in approximately 30 minutes at 11AM PST. Check out the full preview–including original paintings–with instructions for ordering here.
