If you dig the Tiki Bar Culture-inspired art by the artist known as SHAG (AKA Josh Agle) and you happen to live in or near Palm Springs or Los Angeles, California, then you are in luck! Those who wish to fill their homes with Shagadadelic accessories bearing the way-groovy designs of SHAG can visit the The SHAG Store to purchase original, limited-edition prints as well as lamps, cocktail glasses, handbags, jewelry and throw pillows, among other goodies!
This Pink Elephant Throw Pillow measures 16-inches in diameter, with a Fez-adorned Pink Elephant on the front and a solid black fabric back. Contact the store to see if it’s in stock, or can be purchased online!

Do you enjoy the artwork of Josh Agle — AKA SHAG? I sure do. In fact, the very high point of last week’s art crawl was the opening reception of SHAG’s latest exhibit, All My Bones at Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s 23rd Street space. Nicole and I enjoyed looking at the paintings and pretending they depicted favorite scenes from episodes of Mad Men. When you look at the photos in this post, I think you will understand why.

It is no secret that Worleygig.com is a huge fan and supporter of the Jonathan LeVine Gallery and that we try to attend and cover every show! So, it was lots of fun to find ourselves at the opening reception of The Color and The Fury group show, celebrating 10 Years of great art at Jonathan LeVine!

Hey NYC Art Lovers, if you are free this evening (Thursday, May 15th) why not pop over to the two Jonathan LeVine Gallery locations (they are just 3 blocks apart!) to have your mind blown at the opening night reception of Art Truancy, the coolest contemporary art group show, maybe ever!
Featuring the works of over 40 artists, Art Truancy celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Juxtapoz Magazine at a revered gallery space that has been around almost as long. Artists whose work you will see in this exhibit include Alex Gross, Alex Pardee, Andrew Schoultz, Brett Amory, Camille Rose Garcia, Chloe Early, Conor Harrington, Doze Green, Faile, Jeremy Fish, Jeff Soto, Marion Peck, Mark Ryden, Maya Hayuk, Miss Van, Neckface, Parra, Pushead, Robert Williams, Saner, Seonna Hong, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Thomas Campbell, Todd James, Todd Schorr and others. I’m happy to be able to say that I was familiar with the work of so many of these great artists after having been introduced to their work at previous LeVine Gallery shows.
Last night I attended a press preview of the show and will now share with you some of my favorite pieces.
From the 23rd Street Space:
Art by Robert Williams, perhaps most famous for his painting, Appetite for Destruction, which was used as the back cover artwork for the Guns ‘N’ Roses album of the same name.

Retro-Modern Design, Tiki Bar Culture, Cocktail Parties and Vinyl Records. Everything fabulous and swingin’ that made the late sixties and early seventies the best time to be alive are reoccurring themes in Thursday’s Girl, the new series of paintings by artist Josh Agle, known as Shag, on exhibit now at Jonathan LeVine Gallery.
