Cara Ober Closes On Saturday...get on over here

Cara Ober's "ia am who i pretend to be" is slated to close this saturday. I strongly suggest you all get on over here and pick up a drawing off the "Wall.

The Wall is a collection of single drawings following Ober's visual vocabulary.
At $75 a piece the original drawings and mixed media pieces are a steal.
Heck, you can pick up several and make you own Ober!
not that we condone such a practice.

Nick Walker Show in London

Mr. Nick Walker will have a show opening in London on April 17th.
Black Rat Press
It promises to be jam packed with London hipsters and people trying for one of 75 limited edition pieces he is making for the event.

Nick sold out his last show in LA in a couple days...Giving the demand I have been seeing for his work, better get in line a day before.

For those of you who can't make the opening...
Black Rat Press will release two limited edition prints on the morning of the show.
(Be prepared to be one with thousands of people looking to get in before they are all gone)

Please remember, London time is 5 hours ahead of the US. So, I suggest stocking on the Red Bull and throwing an all nighter.

If you can't wait...I still have 5 "Can't Be too Careful" paintings left.

Congrats in advance to Nick!

Sarah Wilmer to Open May 31st

There is nothing like that feeling when I find a new artist whose work I absolutely love.
The hairs go up on the back of my neck and I feel the need to speak to them right away. I hate to wait.

Last Summer I came across Sarah Wilmer and put her into my summer group show "Subtext."
I am constantly amazed by what she photographs. From a family trip to New Zealand (My Brother Max...above) to her weekend photographic excursions around Jersey, to her commercial portraits and advertising. Her sense of natural light, composition and her approach to mystery/suspense and that cinematic (without being 'Cinematic") suck me in and hold me in this vortex of wonderment.

On May 31st I am excited to give her her first solo show at RSG. The work will be a wonderful collection of pieces that are both lyrical, romantic, mysterious and linger in a narrative both personal and emotive.

In the coming month I will put the work up on her website...or if you want a sneak peek...
go here.
