This past Saturday, I headed up to New Bedford, MA to check out Destroy You, New Bedford, a collaborative exhibition featuring the work of Ryan Maguire (aka Magmo the Destroyer) and MCA at UGLY Gallery. I featured a sneak preview of MCA’s Qee-Zilla Kid on here a couple of weeks ago, and these prototypes were on display at the opening.
It’s nice to see some more galleries popping up in New Bedford and UGLY Gallery seems to be doing quite well. The opening was well attended and after speaking to the owner Jeremiah, who is a knowledgeable and all around nice person, I found out that the gallery will be moving to a larger space in the near future. A pretty great problem to have.
If you get a chance, visit UGLY Gallery and check out the exhibition (running until Sept. 8) which also features the work of Ryan Maguire, a talented illustrator and designer with a head full of inspiring ideas.
