Spring Open Studios 2010

We're gearing up for this year's Spring Open Studios in the Mission.
I still have my studio here at Workspace Ltd on Folsom Street. Lots of artists all over the Mission will also be opening their doors the same weekend. Here's a map of where all the studio buildings are.
I will be showing small oil sketches, some new still life pieces and work in progress.

Small paint sketch 3.5 x 5 in.

I'd love to see you here, to catch up with all the people I haven't seen for some time.
Refreshments will be served. (This time I'll remember the corkscrew opener. Hi Dan!)

Power of Self

I was thrilled to be part of the many Honorable Mentions in the competition Power of Self by Artists Wanted, an artists collaborative based in Brooklyn, NY. The judges were actor Steve Buscemi, Chris Weitz, the director of "Twilight: New Moon", curator at the Guggenheim Museum Helen Hsu and Sascha Lewis, the founder of Flavorpill.
The work is shown online here.

ID Redux at Cain Schulte Contemporary Art, San Francisco

From January 15th I will be part of a 4 person exhibition
ID Redux, at Cain Schulte Contemporary Art in San Francisco along with Daniel Ochoa, Michael McConnel and Lars Theuerkauff: "Portraiture becomes the unifying theme of the four artists' inquiry, the research perimeter for their intervention. The physical appearance becomes a symbol for personal identity, condensed and reduced to a single expression, expanded into the viewer’s mind into an imaginary narrative."

You are all invited to the opening Friday 15th, 6-8.30pm.

Spectrum Art Auction

Last Sunday I went to the yearly Spectrum Art Auction benefiting Access Institute for Psychological Services at the Mezzanine, for which I donated a Limited Edition Print (of which there are still more available should you be interested).
It was a great event for a great cause, as Access supports San Francisco's low income and uninsured residents in need of urgent mental health services, something that has never been more critical than now under the current economic situation.

We saw a great performance by my student Theo's band from Bird, a San Francisco music school.
