I have two pieces at the Hyaena gallery for their Quentin Tarantino tribute show. Pieces on display for a month and available directly on the website.
New oil painting goes up at the Kaleid Gallery this week for San Jose Creative’s (http://sanjosecreatives.blogspot.com/) group show. Opening reception is September 7th. Piece is available directly through the Kaleid Gallery(http://www.kaleidgallery.com).
Thank you to all of you who came down to last night’s fourth annual Subzero festival. A HUGE thank you to Cherri Lakey and Brian Eder for putting the whole event together, without those two, the city or San Jose would be a much more depressed city.I know a lot of people are/were out of the area and missed out on last night’s festivities , so here are some shots of the just some of the things I came across while walking the Sofa district. Also you’ll Find shots from Lacey Bryant’s amazing show “Tenuous Threads” which is going on all month at Anno Domini gallery (http://www.galleryad.com/) Enjoy the pics.
So tonight is Robo Shop The group robot show at the Kaleid Gallery here in San Jose.
So for fun I have made 20 buttons which will never be reprinted just for the event. To score a button simply come up to me and tell me what my sculpture “X” is a loving nod to. If you guess correctly you score a button (as long as I still have some left).
The Sculpture is featured in this weeks Metro Paper. So if you are in the southbay please
check it out.
Besides the sculpture I have painted two new pieces this week for the show as well. So I do hope you come down to see the show. I do hope to see you.
So next Friday will be our next First Friday artwalk in San Jose. I will unveiling some new pieces at the Kaleid gallery for the Robo Shop show. One thing I’m excited about for this show
is this will be the first show ever which I have done some sculpture. To celebrate this piece that re-invigorated me I am offering free limited run button. If you can tell me what the sculpture is a reference to you score a button. I’ll be at Kaleid the whole evening so make sure you say hi and take aguess. It’s a pretty geeky reference, but if you get it you will score a VERY limited button. One which I will not be reprinting ever again.
Join us after Candlelight Yoga (5:30-6:45pm) as we open our doors to welcome the Art Walk patrons and the downtown community. Downtown Yoga Shala is proud to present featured artist Nadia Nasiri, a promising young self-taught photographer and avid yoga practitioner. Although this began as a personal hobby for her, Nadia’s intention with sharing her art is to inspire others to cultivate an appreciation for the natural world around us. Her special exhibit, Made in Nature, will feature nature photography and handmade crafts made with items found in nature exhibited in the gallery studio, and outdoor yoga self portraits taken with a tripod and timer or hand held remote in the studio hallway.
The South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk is produced by Two Fish Design

So a few posts back I stated I am working on the newest version of the site. It’s still coming but it has been kicking my butt. It is getting close to going live, once it does I plan to celebrate the new version (and new year) with some give away prizes.
I have a few new paintings in progress for some shows in California and Detroit in the next three months. Plus, I am teaching a “urban” art workshop this saturday for the Triton Museum, this will be my first major workshop, so I’m pretty excited.
