Just over a week ago on April 7th, the latest show I had the pleasure of curating opened at the Articulated Gallery in San Francisco. I had a few ideas of what would be my next show, but i thought that Marvelous Humans would be the most fun, and would be a great way to signal a break in my curating days. I’m not going to say I will never curate again, but I do have other projects now that will take more priority over curating. I am very happy with the art in this show, and the reception was a blast. A good amount of artists were present such as Glenn Arthur, Apricot Mantle, Robert Bowen, Peter Adamyan, Kelly Castillo, and Edward Cao. The artwork from the show is now available in the Articulated Gallery online shop, and you can also see some alternate images of the works over at the Creep Machine Facebook page. If you would like to see higher resolution images of the works, please feel free to contact me.
Opening this Saturday, April 7th, is a new exhibition I have had the pleasure to curate. Entitled Marvelous Humans, this group show features art inspired by the many human marvels that once lived, or are alive today. I have always been inspired by those who were born with a certain condition, and made the most of it, as well as those that choose to alter their bodies regardless of the negative reactions they would receive. So instead of focusing on these people as “oddities”, I thought it was time for some art to be created that was done with a level of respect. A few of the artists looked to the amazing “Human Marvels” website for inspiration, take a look when you have time.
The reception takes place at the Articulated Gallery in San Francisco from 8-10 PM, and a few of the artists will be in attendance. The Facebook Event page has the full info; please help spread the news. Participating artists include: Apricot Mantle, Casey Weldon, Dan Harding, Dave MacDowell, Edward Cao, Glenn Arthur, Elizabeth Levesque, Jackie Gallagher, Jason Snyder, Jay Doronio, Jessica Ward, Kelly Castillo, Larkin, M Fersner, Patrick Deignan, Peter Adamyan, Richard Frost Robert Bowen, Sandi Calistro, & Scarecrowoven. Take a look at the preview images, and we hope to see you there.
The 14th installment of the “Everything But the Kitschen Sync” group show opened at La Luz de Jesus this past March 4th. Apricot Mantle was able to do a review of the show and take some photos for us. Hit the jump link for Apricot’s full review and images.
Coming this March 4th at La Luz de Jesus is the 14 edition of the “Everything But the Kitschen Sync” group show. These group show started back in 18986 and focussed entirely on folk art. The show has now changed names a few times and evolved to encompass more of the best fine art, illustrative, and graphic design out there. New works by Michael Brown, JAW Cooper, Will Crane, Patrick “Star27″ Deignan, Delphia, Robert Doucette, Caitlin Hackett, Scott Holloway, Richard Frost, Dennis Larkins, Danni Shinya Luo, Jon MacNair, Apricot Mantle, Junko Mizuno, Munk One, Scott Saw, Kim Scott, Sean Stepanoff, Bonni Read, Cate Rangel, Antonio Roybal, Celene Petrulak, Nathan Ota, Jessica Ward, James Zar, and many more will be on view. It’s an amazing show with a staggering amount of work to be seen. I especially like José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros Disney remix works, and Delphia’s “The Caul” (shown first) is easily one of my favorite works from this show. This exhibition will be up until march 28th, so if your in the area make sure to stop by.
