Out of Left Field is an art show depicting works from revolutionary artist Pat Riot and special guest artist, Bill Barminski. The prevailing theme is baseball as Riot uses innovative and tangible techniques to emulate the MLB’s beloved players; such as Jackie Robinson, Darryl Strawberry, Eddie Murray and more. The gallery will host hundreds of baseball cards with every head re-faced, and also large, impressionist portraits of famous baseball players, all done entirely with chewed bubblegum.

Pat Riot and Bill Barminski will be donating a portion of the sales from the show to MLB Urban Youth Academy. Also, full proceeds from Jackie Robinson, a pre-sold, honorary piece Riot made with bubblegum on an aluminum panel, will directly benefit MLB UYA. Lastly, Riot will auction off three commissioned bubblegum portraits with the winning bidder to select the player of his choice for the portrait.

Pat Riot is a non media-specific artist who grew up with a passion for baseball and creating eclectic masterpieces. Baseball has consistently influenced his work, his first piece being a “pop-art,” pointillism portrait of his favorite baseball player, Darryl Strawberry of the New York Mets. Over the years he has found that chewed bubblegum is easily maintained and thus combined his love for baseball with this preservation tactic to create extraordinary and tangible works of art for “Out of Left Field.”
