Last night might have been my busiest 1st Thursday ever, and I didn’t even stop off everywhere I wanted to. Either way, I’ll have to go back to a few galleries this week to actually look at the art properly. Even with a cursory glance though, the Charming Baker show was the highlight by a mile. I’m not sure how sustainable it is to sell paintings at the prices they sold for last night, but damn it looked good. Here’s a few things I could have posted about last night, had I not been out being a gallery-hopping scenester…
- Probably the coolest thing I’ve seen all week: Nug (this guy) visited FAME Festival.
- Everfresh have created the graffiti writer’s dream machine: The Graff Mobile.
- Conor Harrington has been painting some murals of bulls in Ireland. I like this one. This one, not so much. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out why that is about either of the walls.
- In addition to his LA show, Lush is doing a show in August at Fifty24SF.
- As usual, Dal does something visually stunning.
- Leon Reid IV is doing a Kickstarter campaign for his latest potential public sculpture in New York City.
- Meighan O’Toole at My Love for You has done a podcast where she interviewed up with Steve Powers, the first in what will hopefully be a series of podcasts from her.
- A new print from Shepard Fairey is being released, partially for charity, in New York this weekend.
- Showpaper has done round 2 of its Community Serviced project where they get artists to paint newspaper bin boxes for Showpaper. Check out all the photos from round 2 here.
