Scroll down to see the large scale installations that Mike Shine and AJ Fosik have been working on while we hang this three day exhibition.

Even in the tightest of quarters, Mike Shine has managed to construct his signature “Art Shack” with the help of his sons and friends. The structure is solidly in place, but we all know that’s only half the battle. We anticipate long hours of painting the walls, inside and out, from Mr. Shine before the fair opens tomorrow.

Mike Shine isn’t the only artist putting his best foot forward this December. Just outside of Booth 50 near the fair entrance, AJ Fosik has installed one of his most intricate works to date. The brightly colored, three snouted creature is one of his strongest pieces of the year, if you ask us.

We are also happy to have Morgan Slade, Casey Gray, Aaron Nagel, Ramblin Worker, and Jesse Hazelip in Miami with us. We appreciate their efforts to be here, showing devotion to their craft and support of the gallery. Stay tuned for updates and we hope to see you in Miami this week!

Mike Shine’s Menacing Mythology

The Bolinas Art Shack is an inspiring abode to say the least and Mike Shine has been getting the most out of it this summer. We are showing his ever darkening works at the Aqua Wynwood art fair in Miami, taking place this November. Mike sent over these preview shots of what he’s got going:

Beautifying SF One Alley at a Time


Over the past year, San Francisco’s Receiver Gallery has been spreading love beyond the walls that hold its exhibitions. Orange Alley, the street behind Receiver, is undergoing a beautification project in which artists are invited to paint large scale murals outdoors. These works have come to adorn the fences, garages, and buildings of Orange Alley.

On July 13th, 2009, the Orange Alley BBQ event brought together artists like Mike Shine, Brion Nuda Rosch, Charlie Callahan, Steven Weinberg, Kyle Ranson, and Chris Duncan to paint, grub, and play music. Such affairs are bound for success, as we already know from David Choong Lee’s recent art picnic. This is why we love summer in San Francisco.
