Newsletter from M Modern -

The Shag show "A Gracious Oasis - Paintings from Palm Springs" will continue on at the gallery through Sunday, March 6th and although all of the paintings have already been sold (there were over 70 people on our waiting list for original Shag paintings), it is definitely worth seeing in person. These paintings are not only incredible to look at but are also some of the largest works Shag has ever done (Palm Springs After Dark is the largest Shag painting ever with an image size of 72" x 33"). Shag fans may never get to see these paintings again after March 6th as they will be flown away by silent secret choppers to their various chic desert lairs possibly forever. We encourage you to make the effort to view these. We do apologize to the many of you that had hoped to acquire one of his paintings from this show but were unable to. We offered to hire Shag to paint for us exclusively, however, we never did hear his answer over the hysterical laughter that swept the building at that moment.

There are still some Consolation Fish show prints available from the gallery. We may place this on our web site in the future, however, for now you will need to call us at the gallery (760 416-3611) to acquire one. The cost for this print is $ 325.00 and this is offered exclusively through m modern gallery.

Also, it looks like Shag will not be releasing a serigraph to coincide with 5th Annual Palm Springs Modernism Show. Tim Biskup will be handling that duty this year with "Mercury Furnace" -


Even more images from the upcoming (32 days and counting) Shag With A Twist are right here.
