Fatherless at Stour Space - 2017

Alternative Facts

Stour Space, April 2017

After the balance of power shifted to the dark side, the defending of lies with the now infamous term “Alternative Facts” sparked us into action. This exhibition was a direct response to our current situation at home and abroad. Images of war, inequalities, and greed are all represented and play a part in our work. Asking the questions ‘How did we get here?’ and ‘What can we do to make a change?’ And simply looking to maintain some level of sanity during those chaotic times.

Fatherless at Unlimited - 2016


Unlimited Gallery, June 2016

Fatherless was on display for the month of June at Brighton’s very own Unlimited. Perhaps the first significant showing of works made by all members. Ben Rider’s work had been slowly incorporated in the posse’s image pallete but this show allowed the time for more collaboration abroad. Works had been shipped back-and-forth for months to build the editions…

Fatherless at Chicago Truborn - 2016

Keep Left

Chicago Truborn, May 2016

Keep Left represented Fatherless’s first solo exhibit in Chicago. We were proud to put forth new works that were welcomed as “the most socially relevant exhibit” the gallery has hosted. The title of the show reflected the mindset possessed by the posse regarding the political landscape on top of the significance of our roots in not only the art world, and inspiration by the great Sister Corita Kent, but also our commitment to the local scene and art community of Rockford, Illinois which sits west (left) of Chicago.

Fatherless Popstractions - 2016


Kortman’s Gallery, September 2015

This opportunity to show in a local gallery run by close friends allowed us to scale back some production and explore a more intimate collection of works dubbed Popstractions.

Fatherless at Sonce Alexander Gallery - 2015

Promise of Something and Nothing

Sonce Alexander Gallery, August 2015

Fatherless featured ten 3’x3′ wood panels for a group exhibit in Culver City. During the opening reception we were on location for live printing of more traditional paper pieces that complimented the body of work on the wall.

Printmaker's Ball - 2015

Printmaker's Ball

Rockford Art Museum, Summer 2015

The quarterly exhibit in RAM’s program for the summer of 2015 had Fatherless prominently featured among some printmaking greats. Our contribution to the exhibit was 32 framed monoprints, an 8’x10′ wooden panel, and a walk-in print fort.

People Of Print Launch
