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.

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.
