Manifest Equality

Manifest Equality opens today and continues through March 7th; I'm proud to be part of this event and strongly recommend stopping by if you are in LA!


"We believe in full and equal rights for all Americans with no exceptions.

Throughout history artists have lent their creative expression to the ideas and issues that shape life in our communities, our country and our world. The MANIFESTEQUALITY Gallery gathers together a diverse array of hundreds of the nation’s most talented visual artists under one roof to celebrate that role and join with our gay (LGBT) friends, family members and co-workers to demand full and equal rights for all Americans.

The MANIFESTEQUALITY Gallery, issues an inspiring, visual call-to-action, with hundreds of artists motivating public energy toward true reform on a local, state and national level."

MANIFESTEQUALITY will be open to the public, Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010 through Sunday, March 7th, 2010 between the hours of 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM with extended hours Friday - Sunday.

I'm excited to be part of the great PAPER!AWESOME! show curated by Brion Nuda Rosch, which opens tomorrow at Baer Ridgway. View the catalog of works in the show online here. Press release is below; come out to the opening tomorrow, or just stop by the gallery sometime soon to view the works crowd-free.


February 20 - March 27, 2010
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 20, 4-7pm

Baer Ridgway Exhibitions is pleased to present PAPER!AWESOME!, a group exhibition of new works on paper by over 100 artists. Curated by gallery artist Brion Nuda Rosch, this exhibition contains over 300 8.5 x 11 inch brand new works on paper by an incredibly varied group of artists. Works by internationally recognized artists will hang side-by-side with those by artists just emerging, all of whom have been asked to work with the most basic of canvases, an 8.5 x 11 inch piece of paper.

This will be the third installment of Brion Nuda Rosch's PAPER!AWESOME!. The first took place in 2003 at Mimi Barr Gallery (San Francisco) and the second at Pigman Gallery (San Francisco) in 2005, both of which received a wonderful response. Part 3, at Baer Ridgway Exhibitions, looks forward to expanding upon Rosch's concept of offering a survey of contemporary artists working with paper, whether it be through drawing, painting, print, collage or sculpture.

Participating artists include, but are not limited to:
Joshua Abelow, Ky Anderson, Joe Biel, Libby Black, Michelle Blade, Ernesto Burgos, Ajit Chauhan, Todd Chilton, Creativity Explored, Chris Duncan, Vic Haven, Jason Jagel, Xylor Jane, Matt Kennedy, Mads Lynnerup, Barry McGee, Julio Morales, Danielle Mysliwiec, Tucker Nichols, Mat O'Brien, Matthew Palladino, Kottie Paloma, James Sterling Pitt, Kyle Ranson, Evelyn Reyes, Matthew Rich, Clare Rojas, Zachary Royer Scholz, Mike Shine, Dean Smith, Deb Sokolow, Chris Sollars, Travis Sommerville, TM Sisters, Paul Wackers, Lindsey White and Eric Yahnker.

More information and images can be viewed on our website: www.baerridgway.com

BRX is located at 172 Minna (between 3rd and New Montgomery) in downtown San Francisco, next to the SFMOMA. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00am to 6:00pm.

the new steak mtn.

i reside with a disarmingly charming fellow who goes by the questionably professional moniker Steak Mtn. his actual professionality is unquestionable. he's just launched a new site showcasing his talents; i highly recommend venturing forth and perusing the doom-riddled works therein:
