The gals are back after a month interlude of sweet art making. What will the rest of the Summer have in store?
Missed Connections by Amanda Cook opening at Wal Public Market (1104 R Street Sacramento) Open through September 3rd
1810 Gallery- Akira Beard
Verge Center for the Arts- The Brightsiders curated by Adam D. Miller
Got caught in some kind of storm of parading bikes shouting, “BIKE PARTY!!”
Another month, another Artmix at the Crocker. This time the celebration revolved around the very great Hi-Fructose show currently being exhibited.
Alison Kenyon of the show Skin Wars was creating body paintings based off of works from the exhibition.
Mark Ryden realness
Over at the Blue Lamp I caught the very rad ladies of La Luz
It’s about time I publicly come out as being a lover of surf rock.
Seriously, check La Luz out.
at The Legion of Honor
This was one of the more extraordinary shows I’ve seen in some time. Having the contemporary sculptures of Urs Fischer interspersed among the Rodin statues and even a painting taking the place of a Peter Paul Rubens created such a dynamic juxtaposition of old and new, giving both new context and meaning.
Lead & Tin
Snail Crossing Helmet
The Crying Horse
I can’t intellectualize why, but this tiny horse is one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen. I saw a man nearly trip over it after not noticing it at all.
It all seems like such a fuck you to the art establishment that is the museum. It’s so rare to step into this kind of place and see such humor.
