‘More Than You Imagined: Art Inspired By Premium Cable’ Opens In Brooklyn, NY
Posted on Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 by Germain Lussier

Even movie fans would agree some of the best entertainment made during the past two decades has been on premium cable. Whether it’s HBO shows like The Sopranos, The Wire, Sex and the City and Game of Thrones or Showtime shows like Dexter, Weeds and Homeland, movies are regularaly getting schooled by TV in terms of character, story and scope. Plus, even if you love a movie, it’s only two hours. A great TV show can be hundreds.

And while we’re all very used to seeing art inspired by movies, art inspired by TV always elicits a slightly more excited response which is why the brand new Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY has picked premium TV for its first exhibit. More Than You Imagined: Art Inspired By Premium Cable opens September 7 and features work by Mark Englert, Kevin Ang, Brandon Schaefer, Joshua Budich, Tim Doyle and many others.

After the jump, check out a huge gallery of work from shows like all the ones mentioned above as well as The Kids in the Hall, Flight of the Conchords, Tales from the Crypt, Boardwalk Empire, Party Down and others, plus find out how you can see it yourself and see how you can buy a print for charity too.

The Bottleneck Gallery is located at 60 Broadway R4, Brooklyn, NY and the exhibit opens from 7-10 p.m. September 7. It remains on display through September 28. Click here for the full gallery hours and follow on Facebook for updates.

Here is a large gallery of images from the show. Mouse over each for the artist. And below, find out how you can get a free print.

The final three images are up close detail and process shots of Paul Shipper’s Band of Brother print, exclusive to /Film. Here’s the official gallery description of the exhibit:

Television plays a crucial role in our lives, influencing our opinions, actions, and daily routine. It is only natural that the small screen would also influence art, linking the two through memorable stories and images. Bottleneck Gallery has decided to embrace this connection and commission an incredible group of artists for “More Than You Imagined: Art Inspired by Premium Cable.” This exciting and entertaining exhibit will feature work influenced by some of the most popular HBO, Showtime, and Starz programs, giving you a reason to get off of the couch.


In addition to all those images, Mark Englert did the main show image from Game of Thrones which will be available in two 8.5 x 11 inch editions.

Most of the first edition of 25 will be put on eBay and 100% of all sales will go to Michael J Fox Foundation. The auction will start Thursday September 6 and 7:30 p.m. and lasts till the following Sunday.

A second version, out of 75, will be given to people who purchases two or more prints in store. Any leftovers will also be put on eBay as well with all proceeds going to Michael J Fox Foundation.

This is gonna be an awesome show and Bottleneck is certainly a new gallery to watch.

I hadn't realized there was more than one Conchord image at the gallery. 8) . I saw the link J posted recently and I do plan to go some weekend. I saw some Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire posters that look great.

Yeah, I saw FOTC's FB post about Liam Brazier's artwork and wasn't aware of the other pieces until I read that article. That's cool you're planning on checking out the gallery, let us know how it goes. :)

Paul Shipper is a NZ based artist and got in touch with WTF! via Twitter to help spread the word about his FOTC painting. It does look really good. Here's the making of his Flight of the Conchords art. :)

I checked at the library and they don't have music stands so if you've got 'em, bring 'em. Also, since we are performing and will go over the 2 hours of free parking they will give us all day parking. Mention this BEFORE you get your ticket stamped or give your ticket to me and I will take care of it.


I am not trying to make fun, I mean it when I tell you I love my fellow ukers in this group. But this is a direct quote taken from the FB page, and clearly this person is Murray. :lol:

That's some funny shi-. A library gig? Odds are there's gonna be some guy there reading the paper who tells you to shut up.

I wish I could attend this gig. I'd even pay like $5 to see it. Hopefully there will be video evidence.
