FRIDAY.LASSITUDE.XIX - SF local art scene & beyond
Crank @Southern Exposure. Opening reception @ 7pm tonight, 11/20.
This annual event is the premier showcase of contemporary artwork by promising local talents. With varied & open-ended theme each year, artists are encouraged to pursue a broad range of artistic expression across media.
For those who are unfamiliar w/ SoEx: Southern Exposure have been the beacon of artist-centric resource & educational hub in SF Bay Area since 1974.
Amidst this year's coterie of 50 aspiring artists, our personal fav. Mr. Jon Gourley's work is also included @ Crank.
Jon constantly explores the juxtaposition between institution & individuality.His works are often propositions based on an acute & keen observation on everyday's habitual subjects.
We are fans of the antsy & witty tone embodied in Jon's works.
Side track back to denim, we are also enticed and ready to launch our debut Artist Collaboration series w/ Jon G.. It was almost a year long collaboration process and we love the results. More detail on this series soon.
Till next week, cheers everyone!
p.s. if you happen to be around SoEx, get a cocktail @Trick Dog! Its usually *very packed and you will sip thru the reason behind =)
