This week lots of my artwork was on the move: the exhibition at 580 Hayes closed, I shipped a piece for an exhibition opening next week at the Carnegie Arts Center, and my huge painting, The Desire Machine, went over to a space at the corner of Gough and Rose Streets for the upcoming Rose Street Bohemian Block Party, which will be Saturday, October 11, from 6 to 10 p.m.
The block party is a fundraiser for public art projects in Hayes Valley and will include live music, food, an art auction, and also an auction of goods from many Hayes Valley merchants, including Green Arcade, Zonal Interiors, Chez Maman, Zuni, etc.
The exhibition at Carnegie (in Turlock) is pretty far away, so sadly I won’t be able to make the reception next Tuesday evening, but the show is up from October 7, 2014, to February 1, 2015, so there is lots of time to check it out.
The group exhibition, In Your Dreams, coincides with a Miro exhibition in the main gallery. My piece is Woman with Two Birds, which is a slightly older painting I reworked last year. I was happy to hear it won an honorable mention award both because of the award itself and because it’s enough money to compensate me for the shipping costs!
Finally, I was reworking another old piece this week, The King and His Queen. It’s not quite done, but it is in the home stretch, which is a huge relief.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
