I helped curate a show with some amazing artists that opens this Thursday! The show is called “California Design & Illustration,” and it features my work as well as three other artists — here’s the invite that Mati and I created for the show:
Check out some of the photos from the installation!
My incredible talented wife Mati McDonough is the star attraction (IMHO). In addition to some recent paintings, she installed a whole wall of her inspiration — replicating the beautiful creative chaos of her working space.
Our good friend Lisa Congdon is in the show as well — she installed a series of her beautiful animal paintings that are a wonder to behold:
In addition to us three, we also included Jason Munn of the Small Stakes, who is one of our favorite artists working today. Jason’s rock posters combine incredible design savvy with conceptual brilliance. I really want to own this Dr. Strangelove piece, but think it is sold out!
I displayed a bunch of my own poster and book work:
But to really make the show special, Mati volunteered me to design a mural for the show. It took two days and three of us working to do it, but it came out great!
Los Medanos Art Gallery is on the campus of Los Medanos Community College, way out in Pittsburg (at the end of the BART line). Here’s the info in case you’d like to make the trek to join us!
