Opening Art Reception April 25, 2008

This past Friday's exhibit opening reception went terrific.

I showed 4 pieces of my encaustic work from my Canyon Calls series, one abstract oil painting and of course my original oil miniature paintings which I only offer during Open Studios weekends. Some collectors chase me down during Open Studios just to get more miniatures because they know I only offer them twice a year at Open Studio times.

Open Studios in the Mission could not have been held on a better weekend. It was brilliantly sunny and warm - actually hot and everyone walking around looked so happy and pleased to be enjoying the warm weather and art. Yesterday was great and today, the last day of Open Studios looks like its going to be just as warm and wonderful as yesterday.

Here are just a couple of pics from the Friday night reception.

Open Studios April 25-27, 2008

I will be participating in the Mission district Spring Open Studios event, being held next weekend: Friday April 25 (7-9 pm), and Saturday and Sunday April 26-27 (11-5 pm).

There are at least 7 artist collective buildings in the Mission that will be open next weekend, full of interesting art. I will showing art work at a brand new building, called ActivSpace.

ActivSpace can be found at 3150 18th Street (which is really odd because the front door and all the mail boxes are actually on Treat Street - I'm not sure what the post office was thinking...) between Folsom and Harrison (Treat Street is located between 17th and 18th and is a one way street to be entered from 17th by car). By bus, both the 24 Mission and the 22 Fillmore bus lines run very nearby.

I will be showing some of my artwork in art space number 105 right along the street front. The exhibit my pieces are included in is called "A Room With a View" (which runs through the end of May).

I am looking forward to a great and busy weekend of meeting lots of great people!

This is one of my beeswax encaustic pieces in the exhibit:
