Last Days

The end is nigh. My show, The How, What and Wherefore at G. Gibson Gallery ends this Saturday, April 18th. Now that tax day has come and gone, come and relax with some eye candy. Find the best free online pokies with free spins and enjoy! As as added bonus you can also see  Gala Bent’s show, A Chorus for the Multiverse alongside mine.

Hanging out with Adam Satushek’s photos at Platform

Stephen is on vacation (well deserved) and I’m sitting the gallery for him today. I get to spend time with Adam’s exceptional photos.

Helicopter, archival pigment print, 40 x 63 inches, 2009, edition of 5

From the press release:

Adam Satushek pays close attention to the ways that human beings influence their surroundings through the traces that are left behind and the impact on the landscape from behaviors, movements, and alterations. His work captures the odd and unintended intersections of common, forgotten objects with the natural environment; an environment which then must bear the mark of that uninvited partnership and struggle mightily to maintain its dignity.

They are LARGE and beautifully printed. And odd – in a good way.

Adam’s photos are on view through May 8, 2010 at Platform Gallery.

Dombrosky/Eakins

In January Rebecca and I got to visit briefly with Marc Dombrosky and Shannon Eakins at Marc’s show at Platform. My post about “Neverland” here. They have relocated to Las Vegas while Shannon pursues her MFA. We miss them.

Marc recently sent me a gift of one of his lovely embroidered pieces. Thanks Marc! I have it in the studio beside a pair of Marc and Shannon’s “Tacoma Drinkers.”  These are leather beer holsters that attach to your belt loops for two fisted drinking.

It should say "Wet Beer."

Plus we have this:

T-Town should by a gross of these!

We hope to visit them in Vegas soon.

Marc Dombrosky at Platform

I’m excited to see Marc’s show Neverland at Platform Gallery tomorrow at First Thursday.

He’s back from Las Vegas where he and Shannon Eakins are living while she gets her MFA. We miss ’em and look forward to catching up tomorrow night.

There are many other good shows including Yuki Nakamura and Gretchen Bennett at Howard House. For more complete coverage hit Best Of, Another Bouncing Ball and Jen Graves.

Congrats Marc! I’ll see you  there.

William Powhida in the NYT

Wow. A nice article about William in the New York Times. Read it here. This is a print he did a couple of years ago for the Miami art fairs – in 2007, but he dated it 2008. Still feels relevant.
