A Festivus For The Rest Of Us

The month of May will see ARThive basking in something the whole neurotic family can enjoy as Jessica Louttit takes her obsession with Seinfeld to brand new heights & curates Art Vandely, the exhibition about nothing showcasing the work of Mike Foxall, Ry Wilkin, Grant Hunter, Sarah Mould, Rose Turner & many sponge-worthy others in one huge Seinfeld fan flaunt!

Opening night will also see the gallery transformed into a tiny cinema showing back to back episodes of the series for you to enjoy whilst munching down on muffin tops, black & white cookies, Junior Mints & pretzels for any kind of donation to ARThive so we can continue to bring you these fabulous exhibtions & eventually retire to Del Boca Vista! Coming dressed as your favourite character is encouraged & there will be a prize for best costume as well as best 'Elaine dance' so start practicing your little kicks! Sweet fancy Moses!

With so much to work with in the 9 seasons of Seinfeld the more artists we have involved the better! So if you would like to contribute some fabulous fan art to Art Vandely we would love to hear from you! Send an e-mail to subjecthive@gmail.com or jmlouttit@gmail.com to share your ideas, get more details, yada yada yada & we can get things rolling!

Alternate Woodland Critter Evolution Fan Fiction

The juvenile badger emerges from its family burrow, eyes blinking at

the badger's life have been spent underground, nurtured and fed by
devoted parents. But now, upon the brink of adulthood, the time has

nocturnal hunting in favour of larger prey.
The badger's eyes adjust to the light just in time to see the net of
webbing jettison from the Arachnowl as it swoops overhead in a fluid
motion from one branch to another, landing as its head spins backwards
to observe the progress of the hunt.
The badger rolls about the forest floor, sticky webbing entangling
ever tighter about its limbs. A webbing which can only be broken down
by the stomach acid of the Arachnowl.
The Arachnowl swoops once again, talons at the fore, ready to finalise
the kill. It is heartbeats away from rending flesh when the badger
erects onto its hind legs, fore-paws raised in mittens of webbing, and
pounces upon the former predator.
The Arachnowl banks to evade its surprise attacker but the badger's
left paw strikes it in the beak and remains attached as the badger
swings its body around and onto the Arachnowl's back.
A shriek echoes through the forest as the badger takes a swift bite
from the Arachnowl's neck before they both tumble into the undergrowth
in a mess of feathers fur and blood.
The blood glistens and drips from its maw as it raises its head and
grunts into the canopy, the Sticky-Fisted Badger has earned its
