LA-based Guest Artist Gary Baseman will create an immersive experience called The Purr Room and offer two limited edition prints for purchase, "The Power of Purr" and "The Sanctum of Purr".
The Purr Room is an immersive art installation inspired by Gary's animal companion and best friend, Blackie the Cat, who has been in his life for a dozen years. Blackie is Gary's sage, muse, and guru; a magical, mystical talking cat with a special triple purr that is deep, resonant, and grounding.

As part of our Greener Future 2019 challenge, Beccy McCray will be exhibiting her playful installation ‘Full Circle’. First exhibited in 2014 at ONCA Gallery, it uses tens of thousands of reclaimed ‘hole-punches’ (the tiny, circular pieces of paper collected by hole-punchers which are usually discarded) to simulate snow. This physically immersive installation is a reflection on consumption and the vast amount of waste generated over the festive season - and the impact this has on our fragile environment.
Alongside a stellar spread of cutting-edge contemporary art commissioned exclusively for the event (and available to purchase), upon entering the Creative Giants’ space, visitors to The Other Art Fair will be transported into an immersive realm, where perhaps nothing is how it first seems.
