Staf Magazine interview preview image

Velvet Club December Poster by Daryll Peirce

In conjunction with the interview, I created this poster for the December lineup of Málaga's own Velvet Club. It's been a while since I've worked up some hand-lettering and have been wanting an excuse to get back into some rock poster and other commercial work so thanks for the fun project!

Ghost Ship Fire Fundraisers

The recent Ghost Ship fire hit close to home and has shaken our community. A beacon in the wake of such a tragic event is that there are multiple forces–from art collectives, to us scrappy artists, to the major Oakland sports franchises coming together to raise money for those affected.

Below are two such events I'm participating in this weekend that are working to help aid and carry on the creative values that the Ghost Ship tenants and participants who are no longer with us supported. Both will be donating to the victims' general fund HERE, which can also be donated to directly.


Heart - A Two Day Fundraiser for Oakland at Faultline ArtSpace:
All artwork in the gallery will be auctioned silently with 25-100% of each sale (determined by the artist) going to the general relief fund. We're going to get as much art as we can, and the price ranges will be from under $10 up to a few thousand. Several of our studio artists will have their work available in their spaces and will be donating a share of sales to charities of their choosing.

When: 2-day event, Friday, Dec 10th from 5:30-9:00pm and Saturday Dec 11th from 11-5pm.
Where: Faultline ArtSpace, 850 42nd Ave #2D (Entrance and Parking at 815 High Street), Oakland

All work is viewable online for bidding here: http://www.faultlineartspace.com/heart-silent-auction/

Bidding closes at 5pm Saturday on all items.

Faultline will continue to raise funds for the Ghost Ship victims beyond this event. Follow them for updates.

This is a fundraiser, not a party.

Many of our neighbors will also be open Friday night. This Second Friday reception is held in conjunction with the 11th Annual Jingletown Winter Open Studios.

Participating galleries and artist studios include:
Faultline ArtSpace, Float Gallery, Ford Street Studios, Gray Loft Gallery, Jingletown Art Studios and Gallery


Wonderland SF's Holiday Show:
"This Saturday DECEMBER 10th lets give back! support local artists for a great cause! In the last few weeks there has been a few devastating events in the Bay Area and I know it’s hard to celebrate through these hard times. I would like to bring our art community together and do something positive that feels good. December 10, 2016 Wonderland SF will be having our holiday party and opening reception of $300 and under art from 6-10pm. All art will be $300 or less. I will be donating 10% of all the sales that day to the victims affected by the Oakland fire. Everyone is welcomed to this event."

Also bring an unwrapped toy. All toys will be donated to Toys for tots. Or, bring a warm coat to be delivered to different homeless camps here in SF.

Ayiti Cheri - Mirus Gallery - Nov 5th - San Francisco


Hurricane Matthew has wreaked havoc in Haiti, hitting areas that still have not fully recovered from the earthquake there in 2010. It goes without saying that the most vulnerable people in this situation are the children of Port-au-Prince, in particular Cite Soleil, one of the most disadvantaged areas in the Western Hemisphere.

RAJEPRE School, founded in 2006 by Winter Luc, is a school and community organization dedicated to creating opportunities for young people in Cite Soleil. The school was badly damaged by the storm, and as a community hub, is in particular need of funds to help rebuild and assist the community (direct donation info).

Please join us at Mirus Gallery for a one-night fundraiser and silent art auction benefitting RAJEPRE and the community of Cite Soleil. This is an amazing opportunity to bid on works from major Bay Area artists while helping the people of Cite Soleil during this trying time.

Works available by:
Alice Koswara | L Jocelyn Herrada-Rios | Serge Gay Jr. | Akira Beard | Daryll Peirce | Kristin Farr | Ken Davis | Peter Adamyan | Max Kauffman | Kevin Earl Taylor | Brett Amory | Meryl Pataky | Ryan De La Hoz | Ferris Plock | Steve MacDonald | Jud Bergeron | Marcos La Farga | MARS-1 | Swampy (collection of Sheila Islam) | Robert Bowen | Ian Johnson | Jason Jagel | Sean Newport

What’s Left SF - Luna Rienne Gallery - San Francisco

Sink or Swim

It's a perpetual struggle to stay afloat, both mentally and physically, under this weighted peninsula of energy and constant change. We can feel entirely overwhelmed and consumed while treading against ever-increasing currents of change and tidal surges, which are only intensified by life in the city. However, it is these same shifts that force internal change and can deliver a wealth of inspiration if you can only catch a breath to notice.

Created for the "What's Left SF" group showat Luna Rienne Galery featuring the following artists who’ve all lived and worked in San Francisco in the past decade:

Alec Huxley | Amanda Lynn | Andy Stattmiller | Brett Crawford | Brian Barneclo | Damon Soule | Daryll Peirce | David Young V | Delphyne Veyrat d'Urbet | Greg Pnut Galinsky | Justin Lovato | Kim Cogan | Leon Loucheur | Monty Guy | Nate1Tan | NoMe Edonna | Reuben Rude | Sirron Norris | Sparkles Positron | t.w.five | Ursula Young

"Many artists have begun their careers in San Francisco, flourished here, and, most likely, felt a shift in the zeitgeist of the city in recent years. Whether positive or negative, SF has left an indelible impression on them, and they would like the city’s current population to contemplate, celebrate, and otherwise react to their reflections. The purpose of the exhibition, which asks both “what has left” and “what is left", is to increase the dialogue about what some perceive as a diaspora and a cultural divide."

Opening Saturday, October 22, 6-9pm and showing through December 5, 2016

Luna Rienne Gallery, 3318 22nd Street (@Valencia), SF.

All the Feels - Aspen, CO

Excited to take part in this show celebrating that mysterious ephemera which tugs at our heart strings. I'm also happy it's taking place in my home away from home away from home state of Colorado. I lived in Denver off and on for nearly 8 years and visited many nooks and corners of the state, but Aspen has somehow escaped me. I'll have 6 pieces for feeling and will also be there in spirit...wearing giant fluffy snow boots.


(Poster art by Andrew Hoffman)

Gravity Productions is proud to present All the Feels curated by Max Kauffman, the inaugural show of Gravity Gallery.

ALL THE FEELS takes a focus on work of an emotional nature. Its nostalgia of music that still tickles the hair on the back of your neck, the rush of memory from kitchen smells, or the deja vu of a new place that reminds one of the comfort of an old home. This show aims to introduce a cross section of artists with strong ties to Colorado that make work for themselves, for the love. Each artist carries an emotional undercurrent- work that clearly defines mood while leaving a narrative direction less delineated.

Featuring work from:
Hannah Stouffer | Andrew Hoffman | John Fellows | Max Kauffman | Jaime Molina | Mike Gallegos | Jamos | Scot Lefavor | Sara Guindon | Tom Bond | Sandra Fettingis | Mike Ortiz | Axel Geitmann | Jonathan Lamb | Daryll Peirce | Harrison Nealey | Chris Huth | Hans Walor | Takeo Hiromitsu | Jonathan Gold | Skye Weinglass | Chris Ford | Rob Mack

The show will open January 7th and be up for one month culminating with the 2016 Winter X Games. Additionally, there will be weekly receptions with artist talks:

January 7th - 9pm - Hannah Stouffer
January 14th - 9pm - Max Kauffman
January 21st - 9pm - John Fellows
January 27th - 9pm - Andrew Hoffman


Gravity Gallery, 300 E. Hyman Ave, Aspen, CO 81623
