In a show tomorrow at Mama Art Cafe in SF. Working with the Maritime crew. The show seems like it might be pretty cool. I’m excited about the show. It’s like a kick off to a bunch of other things coming up. Now only if someone would buy some art, so I can keep my place and keep making more work. Fingers crossed.
Mama Art Cafe (4745 Mission Street, SF) on March 21st
7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
I helped write this little insert about the show.
“The context of the human experience is a multi-layered creation. Through these layers we wear masks for protection, inclusion, and a sense of identity. “Hidden Faces” is an exploration and personification of the masks of society, the individual and the roles they play on the culture at large. The artists in the this show are all a part of Maritime Art Collective. Maritime calls reference to a group of aesthetic explorers foraging a new path in the ever-expanding world of art. This group works together under a cooperative spirit and a common understanding that a whole can become greater than merely the sum of its parts.”
So while working on a new series of paintings, I got with the Maritime Collective to put a show together. With the lovely help of Mary Minanan, and the support of 1314 Grant and Alfredo… We will be presenting a group show called …you guest it, “Fear Within”.
This show is based around phobias. It is a personification, personal exploration, and acknowledgement to the strange and unknown phobias that lurk inside our minds.
The Opening Reception will be November 2nd at 1314 Grant Ave. SF, CA!!!
I hope you lovely supporters come out and show some love for a show I helped curate. Plus you’ll get to see some amazing work by these wonderful artist.

Don’t be afraid! Show Up!
Here’s a little preview of something I’m working on for the show.
So this past Friday I had a show at a local boutique in North Beach, San Francisco. The place is called 1314 ( San Fran Psycho). It’s located at 1314 Grant Ave., SF , CA… This is for those interested in seeing the work. Anyhow, after weeks of not sleeping and feeling nervous and a hectic day of putting up art work, I finally got to enjoy myself. The show, to me, was a success. I was so happy that I was able to show work at a great venue, in a great part of town, and surrounded by amazing people. My friend Mary, helped put this thing together, so props to her. I’m pretty happy we got to work together on a successful project.
Now the next steps have to take place. I have to take some more pictures of the work, update my site and blog (this badboy), and promote the show while it is still up.
This world beyond the void is so amazing and strange.
