The Opening

My solo show opening on Friday went REALLY well. There was a huge turn out and I met and talked with a lot of really cool people from all over the Bay Area (and I even met some Detroiter's - go figure).

I want to thank everyone who did turn out, it was extremely hot in the gallery and everyone was my hero for staying in my gallery room for longer than 5 minutes.

Me with my art.

If you live in the Bay Area and missed the opening, the show runs until October 4th at Eclectix gallery.

In the mean time, I have been asked by my curator friend, Andrew Davis, to make new art for the third installment of his amazing skate deck show, Good Wood. This year, it is happening in Philadelphia at Slingluff Gallery (formerly Studio 2728) on October 17th.

The show is benefiting Stay True, a great organization inspired by young students in Philly who, despite their environments, have decided to dedicate their lives to helping others.

If you live in the Philadelphia area, please check out this great show for a great cause. Unfortunately, I will not be in attendance, maybe one day Good Wood will make it's way to San Francisco.

Don't Forget

There is only 1 week left until my solo show opens at Eclectix.

Bryen was wonderful and handmade frames for more than half of my paintings. I have spent the last week attaching them, staining them, wood filling them and sanding them. I am exhausted.

BUT they look awesome and I think the show is going to be great. I dropped off all my paintings at the gallery today, and they are waiting patiently to be hung.

In addition, there are a few blogs and websites out there that are promoting the show. I especially enjoyed this posting, as they gave a nice description of my paintings.

Once, again, if you got nothing going on next Friday, I would love to see you at Eclectix. there is also the Tattoon show going on in the upstairs gallery - so come and check it out!
