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

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.

The group show will feature 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

Opening Saturday, October 22, 6-9PM
Showing through December 5, 2016

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
Contact Max Kauffman for any inquiries.

...and here's a nice little writeup from the Westword with the lofty title, "ALL THE FEELS Might be the coolest art show ever in Aspen."

And, another great article from VICE featuring "Slack Tide."


Jon Carling and I collaborated together on our “Chrysopoeia” piece for the Athen B. Gallery’s Co•Lab show in October. The piece and experience of it's creation was one of my favorite accomplishments of the year and I'm proud to finally share it here. I’ve been missing our weekly paint sessions, learning more of Jon’s work, narratives, and the being it comes from as well as the amazing stories, the conspiracies, the record scratches, guest visits, bizarre conversations, and late night food escapades.

Inquiries can be sent to the Athen B. Gallery.

Surf Craft Benefit Show & Auction

Last year during Miami Art Basel I painted a custom surfboard to benefit Waves for Water. After a week of walking miles of art fairs, galleries, and street work, the invitation to kick back and paint with friends in a shady cabana was a welcomed reprieve from the circling art frenzy. Now, the time has finally come to show and auction off these painted and glassed boards here in SF, Friday, July 17th at Chandran Gallery.

Juxtapoz once again teams up with UNIV, T.F.R. Gallery and Chandran Gallery for the second in what will become an annual Surf Craft benefit auction, held at Chandran Gallery in San Francisco. This year, we invited artists Chris Johanson, Dan Witz, Swoon, Logan Hicks, Grotesk, Mary Iverson, Brett Amory, Alicia McCarthy, WEST, Zio Ziegler, Kevin E. Taylor, David Arquette, Daryll Peirce, Beau Stanton and Ty Williams to contribute original work on surfboards to be exhibited at the gallery with a live auction on Paddle8 in conjunction with the show. The online auction on Paddle8 will begin Thursday, July 16th at 9amPST and be available for bid till July 29th, 2015.

The special one-night (free) exhibition will be held at the Chandran Gallery, 459 Geary Street, San Francisco on July 17 from 7-9:30pm, with a special DJ set by Andy Cabic (Vetiver).

Join us in support of Waves for Water, an organization that develops clean drinking water systems globally to areas in dire need. The auction will be live at:

PULP: Weird Works on Panel and Paper

Well I've been just terrible at updating this here space. There's been new work, shows, projects, world travels, Art Basels, and more that I've let slip through the informative cracks. I've been quite occupied juggling my growing family and relying on the ease and laziness of posting via social media. I hope to write more in the future but not as much as I hope to sleep. I'm also working on getting a new site created as well...finally!

"PULP: Weird Works on Paper"
Recently, I had the pleasure of working with curators Kelsey Marie and Kate Kuaimoku for a fun weird exhibition at the Public Works' Roll Up Gallery here in SF. I was happy to jump on board when I saw my pal John Casey's work on the promo stuffs (above image). Although John was away in Denver for the opening, we still had a nice John-less celebration and I met some new friendly folks. I managed to squeeze in some very large work along with several smaller pieces into this cozy space.  It opened July 12th, but is still on view for a few more days so please stop by or make an appointment if you have the chance. My large 8'x8' piece has been moved out of the gallery and into Public Works' front lobby so that can be visited anytime over the next year.

Artists: John Casey, Daryll Peirce, Jae Chan Lee, Jacqueline Cooper, Jennifer Schnell, Rachel Houser, Kate Kuaimoku. Curated by: Kelsey Marie(The Midway) and Kate Kuaimoku

Public Works is at 161 Erie Street, San Francisco, CA 94103. Contact or (415) 496-6738 for questions or to schedule a viewing.  |  FB Event Page
