Manhattan’s M-Gallery is pleased to announce that the Michael Golden art exhibit and sale will be extended through the end of the month due to the enthusiastic turnout at the opening night reception last Friday, when over 400 people packed the boutique West Village hot spot, literally spilling into the street.
“We could not be more pleased with the number of people discovering our gallery, or the prices that the works are garnering,” said gallery owner Bo Offenbaker. “Several Golden originals went for over $8,000, while I have a bidding war on others. Due to this tremendous response, we have asked those who acquired art on opening night to allow us to display their pieces throughout the rest of this month. It has all been truly exciting.”
Co-Creator of X-men’s Rogue, Golden is celebrated for his detail oriented rendering on “The ‘Nam,” “Micronauts,” “G.I. Joe,” “Dr. Strange, ” and much more. With new work currently hitting on “Iron Man” for Marvel, along with “Nightwing” and “Batman” covers for DC Comics, and a plethora of work from Wildstorm, Image and Dynamite Entertainment, among others.
M-Gallery has produced boutique shows for some of the New York art communities top up and comers and celebrated talents, and Michael’s work fits right in. “Mr. Golden’s work is revolutionary,” continued Offenbaker. “The marriage of pop art and fine art, with that indefinable style is universally appealing.”
Milestones in Golden’s career include work on practically every character in the comics lexicon, as well as the creation of “Bucky O’Hare,” which has just been optioned for a movie via Continuity Studios, while Vanguard Productions is currently planning a Manga volume of the series to be released later this year. Eva Ink will put out the signed edition.
The M-Gallery display features over 25 large canvas giclees, and original art, of powerful Golden images, with some pieces still available for acquisition. M-Gallery is located at: 242 W. 10th St. between Hudson and Bleecker. 212-336-3563. During the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend, please call for an appointment.
