We’re not just about cute puppies anymore…
Three Bones Society celebrates the making of myths through printmaking. All artwork is hand printed, making each piece sold unique. It reflects the effort and skill of an individual craftsman. It is a measure of human effort executed through human hands and eyes. We try to make the majority of work very affordable Buyers can collect original art without breaking their budgets. Work in our primary Shop is typically priced between $20 and $100. (More select offerings will be made available through our Boutique. We will drop new pieces at least two weeks. Our collectors are encouraged to perceive each work and appreciate its impact and significance for themselves.
Partners Eric K. Lerner and Ara Giacomazzi cut and broke their teeth artistically in the No Wave subculture of early ‘80’s NYC. Perhaps part of that aesthetic still reverberates in Three Bones Society offerings (now known as “merch” in the modern parlance.) We are drawn to religious, esoteric and occult themes, yet embrace counter-culture icons and actors.
Three Bones Society back story will follow in future blogs and additions to this page.

Eric K. Lerner
Eric K. Lerner is Three Bones Society’s primary artist. In the mid-1990’s he began creating votive pieces employing mixed media, acrylic, and digital manipulation. Soon, he began working as a graphic designer and illustrator. His clients included the BBC, Science Magazine, IBM, Marriott Corporation and Right Hemisphere. He also produced posters, t-shirts and publications for a number of non profit organizations. By 2004, he stopped working in digital media almost entirely to focus on illustration work using traditional techniques. He studied Buddhist thangka painting. By 2008, he realized that most of the works that initially inspired him to pursue the visual arts were old etchings, engravings and woodcuts. He sought a formal education in printmaking that continues through the present. As a fine artist, Lerner has exhibited and sold work in the United States, the U.K., Australia and Italy. His 2012 release of a hand-crafted major arcana tarot, Radiant Spleen Tarot, appeared to favorable reviews and sold out. He has work included in the permanent collection of the Museo dei Tarocchi in Bologna. In 2017, he contributed 5 pieces to 1917 Tarot, commemorating the Russian Revolution, an international collaborative exhibition/publication that premiered in St. Petersburgh Russia on October 22, 2017. In 2018, the exhibition traveled to Madrid, Spain. You can visit our gallery of his printmaking work.
