Welcome to the latest Street Art News brought to you by Don’t Panic. This month we see Miss Bugs venture across the water and exhibit a set of new works at the New Image Art Gallery in LA alongside Reko Rennie.

The show titled Bingo Night in the Promised Land opened on August 7 and will run until September 4. Miss Bugs is showing all new works, originals and editioned prints.
 
 
 
It has been confirmed that the new Eelus print Everythings Not So Black and White will be released this Friday 13, it’s been a wait since we mentioned it but it’s nearly over, make sure you’re on the button to get one as we expect these to fly out!

The Signal Gallery are displaying artwork by a very wide range of Punk musicians and some of their artist fans. The show is curated by Gaye Advert (The Adverts) and is open from August 13 through 21.
 
The musicians involved include Adam Ant, Poly Styrene (X Ray Spex), Steve Ignorant (Crass), Charlie Harper (UK Subs), Youth (Killing Joke), Phil Barker (The Buzzcocks), Penny Rimbaud (Crass) and Gaye herself.
 
Artists included in the show are Jamie Reid, Gee Vaucher, Shepard Fairey, Guy Denning and Dale Grimshaw.
 
Several of the musicians will be sitting in during the run of the show, so pop down to view the works and maybe have a chat with some of the legends.
 
 
Following from Jody's success from his first show, Jody heads back to the Weapons of Choice Gallery, Bristol for his second solo exhibition.
 
Showing a collection of new work Jody explores the theme Dark Spaces.
 
The opening preview is on August 13, 6-10pm and all are welcome. The show will run until the September 12.

Until 15 August 2010, the Brooklyn-based artists Faile will display Temple, a full-scale church in ruins in Praça dos Restauradores Square in Lisbon. The installation was made in conjunction with the Portugal Arte 10 Festival and will tour abroad. While Faile is well known by now for their arresting, advertising and pop inflected prints and sculptures, Temple marks the duo’s migration from a more strictly visual medium into the realm of site specific environments. While its structure is the ruin, Temple should not be read as a memento or celebration of decadence but instead as one of collaboration and renewal.
 
More pictures and details on this remarkable piece of art or architecture, however you look at it, can be found on Failes official Temple website here.
 
‘til next time, thanks for reading!
