“The term “Pulp Menagerie” speaks to the varied subject matter on exhibit.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Beatles Inspired Print, “The Record Store” By Dave Perillo On May 22, 2015

Dark Hall Mansion  is most pleased to reveal its latest officially licensed Beatles limited edition print release: “The Record Store” by contemporary artist, Dave Perillo, on sale this Friday, May 22nd, 2015!

Dark Hall Mansion, working with Apple Corps Ltd and Bravado International, their North American licensing agent, will release Dave Perillo’s unique take on a very special moment at a most everyday record store. An unusual and quietly meditative piece that catches the Beatles pausing before a record store window, a reflection on all accomplished and all that’s yet to come, it’s as much a meditation on artistry and artistic achievement as it is on fame and identity. Are the Beatles pausing in some “Hard Day’s Night”-like run from their oncoming swarm of fans, or were they already there, quietly taking in the moment, alone and contemplative as only they knew this singular experience? The print is a special one, having required select clearances so Dave might be able to include actual Beatles record covers, tour posters, television performance imagery and related, all in creating his piece. What we see is at once so very public and yet so intimate and private, only the public visage of the Beatles gazes back at the viewer, while Dave’s rendering of nuances such as slight head tilts and telling body language allow us to also stand quietly with the Beatles, sharing this moment with them. A charming piece no doubt, but a poignant one as well.

DHM’s officially licensed Beatles Dave Perillo “The Record Store” limited edition Standard print measures 20″ x 28,” is a 6-color screen print, hand numbered and limited to a worldwide run of only 280 pieces at $65. The Variant edition is a 20″ x 28″ 6-color screen print, 3 colors being metallic ink highlights, hand numbered and limited to only 50 pieces worldwide at $100. The select Foil edition (based on Std colorway) measures 20″ x 28,” a 6-color screen print, on foil, hand numbered and limited to only 10 editions worldwide at $150. The select Foil edition (based on Variant colorway) measures 20″ x 28,” is a 6-color (3 being metallic ink highlights) screen print, on foil, hand numbered and limited to only 10 editions worldwide at $150.

5. Chris Rock: “I’m just glad your show is being given to another white guy.” (Dave: “You know, I had nothing to do with that.”)

4. Julia Louis-Dreyfus: “Thanks for letting me take part in another hugely disappointing series finale.” (Seinfeld smirks). (Dave: “I had nothing to do with that either.”)

bkb_1sht_main_dom_2764x4096

November 15, 2013 was a pretty momentous day for Gotham City as thousands gathered to cheer on five year old “Batkid” Miles who, as part of a Make-A-Wish Foundation event, saw San Francisco transformed into the DC Comics city. Donning a cape and cowl, five-year-old Miles took on the Penguin, saved a damsel in distress and was presented with the key to the city. thanks to an intense outpouring of spontaneous support reverberated around the world. Now, Miles’ story comes to the big screen in the new documentary, Batkid Begins, which has today released its trailer.

Miles’ wish and this role as a little caped crusader resonated so deeply with filmmaker Dana Nachman that she was inspired to explore what happens when a small scale event aiming to fulfill one wish goes unintentionally viral, ultimately revealing surprising truths about what happens when someone inspires our society in a digital age.

Batkid Begins was directed by Nachman, who also produced the documentary with Liza Meak. The film was written by Nachman & Kurt Kuenne (Batkid Begins). Ian Reinhard & John Crane served as executive producers.

Batkid Begins hits theaters June 26, 2015.
