What's up with bluestninja? -- January '05 Edition 2.1
This is the official 1-year anniversary of these newsletters,
although I did miss a few months in early 2004 (not that anyone
actually remembers that except for me). It has already been
shaping up to be an interesting year in the bluestninja world.
After squatting in a friend's garage for a couple months,
I have found a brand new art studio and holy twinkie am I
Yeah, I said twinkie -- as in, my studio is across the street
from the Hostess Factory in San Francisco. I can smell them
cooking. And it smells delicious.
I have moved into the Melting Point Studios -- a converted
brewery with 10-15 artists, right on the border of the Mission/Potrero
Hill neighborhoods. It is the coolest building in the world
and I'm extremely excited to see what happens to me there.
Any time you want to get a little tour, drop me a line.
Now on to the happenings:..
Duct Tape Paintings
Eight spanking new 10ä x10 ’ paintings with hilarious titles
such as Get
Out Chuck, TeePee,
Laugh it up, friends. Laugh it up.
And one new 16äx 20ä paintings with not so hilarious a title:
2. Paintings and Buttons at Artist
I am back at the Artist Xchange with 8 paintings (including
’I Told You Before, ’5ä (another from the 10ä series although
the name, again, is not so hilarious), the above ’Untitled,ä
and ’Girl Scout Mafiaä (see Duct Tape Paintings on the site).
There are also a few Black and White boxes for very reasonable
prices. As always, my homemade buttons are continuously being
replenished so check for new ones there.
They are having an event on February 4 at their gallery
on 16th St. (Valencia) in the Mission, which I highly encourage
you attend although I can't make it. They are a great supporter
of local artists and you should support them in return.
That's all for this month. Next month: a brand new needlepoint!
