Summer Update

Hey everyone!
I have been so busy! Just a little update on what's goin' on this summer:
Internship: I've been working at Hespe Gallery in SF near Union square. Please stop by if you're in the area. There is a great show up right now by Hiroshi Sato which will come down on June 30th, then up is Amberlee Rosolowich. She has some amazing paintings. I can't wait to see the rest of the show and meet the artist!
My duties consist of helping install work, store and package paintings, admin and social media. It has been a fun ride, I've been learning a lot and asking tons of questions.

Studio: I have been trying to convert my bedroom into a painting studio. Slow going, not much time for painting because of the 1-2 hour commute up to SF for the internship and all of the chores and errands on top of that!
Digital: I have joined a company called ZeroUI. I can't say much but I am doing art. If you want to hear more about the project please follow this link and join the mailing list:

Internship at the Hespe Gallery

Hey everyone! Lighter on the posts lately. I have started an internship at the Hespe Gallery in SF near Union square. It is an amazing space, beautiful lighting, perfect location and great art.
Here is the first show that I helped install and worked the reception.

Hiroshi Sato, a very young talented painter. He is still a student in SF but I am blown away by the sophistication of his work. It has an airy essence but the geometric breaking of the color fields ground the work and add a contemporary spin to the classical subject matter. I actually knew his girlfriend, Whitney, who I met at Michael Buffington's "drawaholic's anonymous" workshop. She is also a very talented artist and a fun person, plus it was nice to have known at least one person at the opening!

Hiroshi Sato at Hespe Gallery is up today! The opening reception is Thursday, June 7 from 5:30-7:30. The exhibition runs until July 3. 

My personal favorite.
