My painting of "Cassie: The Casco bay Sea Serpent" will be featured in the "Monsters in America" exhibition opening at the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine. The show was originally at One Mile Gallery in Kingston NY and by popular demand is hitting the road.
Whether the protagonist be the Pope Lick Monster, Wampaus Cat, Mothman or Chupacabra, tales of mysterious creatures and inexplicable phenomena have been passed down for generations. Curated by Richard Saja, “Monsters in America”, is a group show featuring various artists’ take on the cryptozoological map of the United States. Each artist focuses on a legendary monster, ancient spirit or alien being.
Richard Saja is an artist working in Catskill, New York. His work has been exhibited in Paris, Berlin, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Shelburne Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art and the National Museum of Embroidery in South Korea.
Monsters in America exhibition draws inspiration from the Hog Island Press Cryptozoological map of the US.
