Ransom & Mitchell's "die Familie" Opening Oct 5th

For the last 6 months, the imaginative and dynamic duo of Ransom & Mitchell have been physically transforming the ZeroFriends artists into inhabitants of a surreal, whimsical and morose castle filled with hidden chambers, secret gardens, beasts,  a magical graveyard and even....a dentist office.
Though they call themselves "die Familie" (German for " the family"), are they REALLY a family? Or something....larger? 
Strung together through a series of narratives, props, and gorgeously shot portraits and prints of each artistic character, Ransom & Mitchell's "die Familie" will be moving from their 19th Century acropolis into the ZEROFRIENDS OAKLAND Gallery just in time for the upcoming  Halloween Season.

Opening OCTOBER 5th from 5-9PM at our Oakland gallery, Ransom & Mitchell will be unveiling an entire new series of "hysterical reenactments", beautifully demented portraits of artists including Skinner, Dave Correia, Alex Pardee, Chloe Rice, Robert Bowen, Jon Wayshak and Quake. 

Check out some exclusive preview images below.
And check out some behind the scenes photos over on our ZF Facebook page.

Limited edition fine-art prints of each portrait will be available for purchase at the opening reception as well as online at
