Cederteg Publishing

Posted May 23, 2008 by Emanuel in cederteg publishing

Since the day we first opened our doors about a year ago, the spaces that our stores have taken up have given GPTG the inspiration to expand from carrying clothing items to an eclectic range of products that embody a lifestyle of quality. Always supportive of independent artists and their creative endeavours (see previous post), Gravity Pope Tailored Goods has received art 'zines from Cederteg Publishing highlighting the works of several hand-selected artists.

The independent publisher, spear-headeded straight out of Stockholm by Tony Cederteg is carried at a wide range of note-worthy boutiques around the world. Every publication is a limited print, so be sure to snag your copy right away as several of the featured artists we carry have already had their issues sell out online!

Cederteg N°2 by Nicholas Haggard, $17 CAD

"Bee-Headed" by Jessica Albarn, $17 CAD

"Who's Laughing Now" by Kevin Christy, $17 CAD SOLD OUT

"Ain't no Uzis made in Harlem" by Hannes Isaksson , $17 CAD

Nextfest '08 and GPTG

Posted May 23, 2008 by Emanuel in events, erinne fenwick, nextfest

This year, Gravity Pope Tailored Goods is proud to be a hosting venue for Nextfest 2008. A celebration of music, theatre, dance, film, visual art and much, much more, Nextfest highlights the creative talent of many of Edmonton's up-and-coming artists, including Erinne Fenwick and her exhibit entitled 'You have your walls too'. Describing her own work as "a dichotomy between art and violence", Fenwick explores the spaces of her childhood using imagery that evokes antiquity and beauty--a perfect match for GPTG Edmonton's own aesthetic. Be sure to come down and check out her beautiful and provoking pieces.

For sales inquiries regarding the works themselves, please contact Erinne Fenwick directly at 1.780.504.9423 or through email at erinnefenwick@hotmail.com.
