Mucho radness going on these days.
THURSDAY 4.29 (TONIGHT) the Distillery Gallery will be hosting the opening reception for the Studio 11 Retrospective show. Studio 11 is the former home of Repeat Press, as well as dozens of other artists over the past few decades. The show will feature works from all former tennants who could be tracked down, as well as a special display of relics from the history of the space. The show will run through may but everybody knows the real fun is at the opening so get over there tonight, 6-9pm.
FRIDAY 4.30 you can relax a bit and head over to Harvard for the current showing in the “Food at 24 Frames Per Second” series – All In This Tea, a documentary following “a tea-obsessed American to the lush Chinese countryside, where he battles bureaucracy and economics to spark an interest in organic tea.”
I’ve been assured that this is a great film and tea will be provided.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY 5.1-5.2 the annual Somerville Open Studios will be happening city-wide, and we wouldn’t be left out of that. Fringe will have its doors open to the public to come check out whatever it is that we do around here, and Autumn Ahn will be painting a mural on the wall next to the studio, live throughout the weekend.
In the Repeat Press shop I’ll have the presses running demos throughout both days, and a blowout sale on old posters – stop in and pick up some prints cheap!
FRIDAY 5.7 this might be a hike for folks in the Boston area but well worth the trip. Friends Fish McGill and Evoker are teaming up for a show at the coolest surf gallery around, Portland’s Corduroy. This flyer gets an early nomination for best flyer of 2010.
Spring has sprung! Get out there and have some fun!
I’ll be showing some pieces from my wood type monoprint series “Welcome To the Human Race” for the duration of February and March at The Blue Room, alongside work by my good friend Robert DaVies. The fine folks over at The Blue Room have been kind enough to host an opening reception tomorrow night – if you’re in the area please stop by!
Tuesday, February 23rd, 7-9pm.

For those in the Boston area, The Fringe Movement will be hosting our first open house tonight from 5-10pm. Come on down to check out some work and enjoy some refreshments.
I’m hoping to have some pictures from the opening soon but for now here’s a preview of my solo show JUST AS LONG AS YOU ARE THERE that opened last friday at Corduroy in Portland, ME. The opening was a blast and I got to meet a bunch of new friends. The show is up through the end of the month so go check it out!
Solo show of my personal work opens this Friday at Corduroy in Portland. Should you find yourself in the Maine area come on down for beers and high fives.
I have no idea how to pronounce Chris Piascik’s last name, but I do have a sweet gocco print of his that I picked up at Grand a while back. His upcoming show at Chorus looks like it will include a series of larger paintings that as well as the smaller prints that many people are familiar with.
The show opens this Saturday, June 13th, with a reception from 8-11pm. The past two openings have been a blast so be sure to check it out.
quick post – I’m at the studio today for till six or so for open studios, come on by!
About a month ago, I was talking with Zack from Union Square’s newest bike shop/creative spaceOpen Bicycle, and he casually asked if I’d like to curate a group show in their gallery space, Chorus. The only catch was that the show would be scheduled to open about three weeks from that point, not much time to put together and promote a show. Still, I jumped at the chance and managed to assemble a show featuring fantastic work by Joe Keinberger, Fionn McCabe, Arthur Henderson, and Brian Hart.

All four of these guys live in the Boston area and continually impress me with their quality of work and dedication to their art. Several of them are involved in the Oh Nancy project, an ever-growing collaborative mythology based around a girl, a football team, sea creatures…you should probably check the site for yourself.
The opening on May 16th was a blast, and the show runs through June 10th.
If you haven’t paid a visit to the shop yet, you’re in for a treat. The layout and merchandising of the store are excellent, and the product focuses on top-quality, handmade frames and accessories from around the globe.
Open Bicycle and Chorus Gallery are located just outside Union Squre at the corner of Washington St and Hawkins St in Somerville, MA.
