White Walls in Booth 50:

AJ Fosik, Aaron Nagel, Becca, Casey Gray, Ernesto Yerena, Greg Gossel, Jesse Hazelip, Jessica Hess, Kevin Cyr, Mark Warren Jacques, Mike Shine, Morgan Slade, Nas Chompas, Ron English, Shawn Barber, Isabel Samaras, Timothy Karpinski, Kill Pixie, Lucas Soi, and Erik Foss

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!

Words on Nas Chompas

We’ve had our eye on Nas Chompas, as The Shooting Gallery just covered his current works in Together Gallery’s exhibition, Wood. We are thrilled to welcome this artist into our own gallery for December’s Winter Art Show. Here is a word from Jillian Mackintosh, who recently published a nice overview of Nas Chompas:

Waking RemainsNas Chompas is one of my favorite illustrators. Recently he’s been touring the country with his band Nurses but in between he’s managed to make some pretty epic new pieces. His art is currently in the Wood art show at Together Gallery in Portland, OR.  and will be featured in the Winter Show at White Walls in December. He sent me some of his newer pieces upon request and I’ve included some older ones too. Continue reading

Words of Hope from 666

If you’re worried about the world at large, watch this video from the opening of “The Future Is So Bright” at 666 Gallery and breathe deep.

KQED covered the event with enthusiasm, and we like what they had to say:

“The space, formerly the location of Gallery Three, is a cozy oasis the size of a walk-in closet in the seedy wilds of San Francisco’s Tenderloin district . . . Feast on Alexandra Steele’s coyote decoys, Nas Chompas’ explosive fantasy world, Mark Warren Jacques’ trippy geometry, and Timothy Karpinski’s childhood bric-a-brac.” -Emmanuel Hapsis, KQED
