C.A.V.E. Gallery "Crooked Comfort" Show Pics

Hi All,
***New News: Both of my paintings, "Plum Mother" and "Birdfoot" sold at the show!!***
I had a great time at the "Crooked Comfort" Show opening at the new C.A.V.E. Gallery location in Venice Beach! My piece "Birdfoot" sold to a wonderful local collector. It was a little bit of a drive, but well worth it for such a cool gallery and fun people! Everyone at C.A.V.E. was wonderful and friendly, and the opening was lots of fun! There was live painting by CODAK, and many of the artists were in attendance. Some pictures of the opening night can be seen here:
on the Juxtapoz Magazine website.
Here are a few more pics from the night:

Release The Bats!

Hello Friends!
Please join us for the Junc Boutique & Gallery group show "Release the Bats!" an art show inspired by Dracula's children of the night. 10% of the proceeds from the Gallery cut of all art sales will go to help bat conservation efforts. White snout syndrome is currently wiping out huge populations of bats, and as of yet has no known cure.
Opening night will be October 2nd, 2010, 6 – 10pm, during the South Park Walk-about (for more info on the walk-about, please visit:
"White nose syndrome is a condition associated with the deaths of more than a million bats in the Northeastern United States.[40] The disease is named after a white fungus found growing on the muzzles, ears, and wings of some afflicted bats, but it is not known if the fungus is the primary cause of the disease or is merely an opportunistic infection.[41][41] At least six species of hibernating bats are affected, including the endangered Indiana bat.[42] Because the affected species have a long lifespan and a low birth rate of only about one offspring per year, it is not expected that populations will recover quickly."
"...What's bad for bats is often bad for people, too. As a top predator of flying insects, bats regulate the population size of everything from gnats, flies and mosquitoes to costly agricultural pests, and they play key ecological and economic roles throughout the United States — making a batless Halloween even scarier than one swarming with them.

Mortality rates of 90–100% have been observed in some caves.
Please come out and help our flying mammalian friends by buying some art, enjoying some music & food, and of course shopping the great selection at Junc!

Exquisite Corpse Show in Sacramento

Hi All,
The Exquisite Corpse show will be taking place soon at Archival Framing in Sacramento, CA. This show is dedicated to Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, and is sure to feature some amazing art!
Each piece will be comprised of three separate pieces done by three different artists. This is called an "exquisite corpse" and dates back to a Victorian era parlour game.

"Among Surrealist techniques exploiting the mystique of accident was a kind of collective collage of words or images called the cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse). Based on an old parlor game, it was played by several people, each of whom would write a phrase on a sheet of paper, fold the paper to conceal part of it, and pass it on to the next player for his contribution."

Please join us for the "Hungry Ghost Moon" Group Show, an art show inspired by the 'Chinese tradition of Ghost Month (鬼月), in which ghosts and spirits, including those of the deceased ancestors, come out from the lower realm'

Saturday, July 17th

James Geiger:

"On the fifteenth day the realms of Heaven and Hell and the realm of the living are open and both Taoists and Buddhists would perform rituals to transmute and absolve the sufferings of the deceased. Intrinsic to the Ghost Month is ancestor worship, where traditionally the filial piety of descendants extends to their ancestors even after their deaths. Activities during the month would include preparing ritualistic food offerings, burning incense, and burning joss paper, a papier-mache form of material items such as clothes, gold and other fine goods for the visiting spirits of the ancestors. Elaborate meals would be served with empty seats for each of the deceased in the family treating the deceased as if they are still living. Ancestor worship is what distinguishes Qingming Festival from Ghost Festival because the latter includes paying respects to all deceased, including the same and younger generations, while the former only includes older generations. Other festivities may include, buying and releasing miniature paper boats and lanterns on water, which signifies giving directions to the lost ghosts and spirits of the ancestors and other deities."
