This exhibition showcases over 100 pieces of art. Sadly, between Angry Birds and thumbs downing songs I don’t like on Pandora I just don’t have the time to photograph each individual piece. You can catch a glimpse of all the pieces from the installation shots, which lack on specific details, but here are some up close and personal shots from the show if you’d like to take a look.
$100, plus shipping
Birds On A Wire
Kicks And Giggles
Gold Teeth And A Curse On Your Family
If you’d like to purchase any of these and would like to know the dimensions let me know. You can call the gallery at 805.541.3932.
That’s it for now. I have some more to post later so be on the lookout!
Luckily, I took photos of the installation before the mob hit on opening night. For this show we have gone the “cash and carry” route as opposed to the typical red dot on sold pieces that collectors have to come back for when the show ends. We’ve sold about 30 pieces since the opening so there are a lot of gaps on the walls now. Here is the show before pieces started flying off the walls.
Seven pieces in this cluster are now gone. The mastermind behind MNKR is kicking ass.
The super awesome “Look” and “Listen” screenprints by Dr. Cain are gone, but we do have a couple more available unframed.
I haven’t counted how many pieces are in this show yet, but I’m pretty sure it’s over 100. There is certainly a lot to look at and I, unfortunately, won’t have the time to get all of the work online, so if you see something you’re interested in from the above photos let me know. You can call the gallery at 805.541.3932.
The $100 And Under show is in full effect! Here are some photos of what the gallery looked like after the artists dropped off their work and I prepared to hang the show.
I actually hung the whole show by myself this time around. If I remember correctly I started when the gallery closed at 6pm on Thursday evening and I hammered the last nail in the wall around 3:30am Friday morning. The opening reception started at 8pm Friday night. Despite an extremely heavy downpour about 200 people came through to check out the arts. And here’s a couple photos of that.
I’ll post some installation shots later today.
Enjoy! And be on the lookout!
No names have been changed to protect anybody’s identity in the following story.
James, 11 year old boy
Evelyn, 9 year old girl
Jeff, the adult (he’s older than you think, but looks like a guy slightly above the legal drinking age. At least that’s what he’s been told and he finds no reason to dispute the claim.)
The following conversation took place while driving from school to work on a cloudy afternoon.
James: Is puberty a bad word?”
Jeff: Nope. Not at all.
Jeff: Why gross? It’s just part of growing up.
James: Yeah, Evy.
Evelyn: It’s gross because that’s when hair grows on your peepee.
Jeff: Well yeah, but everybody has to go through it.
Evelyn: I don’t want puberty to happen to me. I just want boobs. I don’t want the other thing.

I just received an email asking what large paintings I have available. When I started writing back I realized it would take about 20 minutes to include links to all the images and write info (size and price), so I figured if I’m dedicating that much time I might as well just make a blog post about it. A big thanks to Chris for asking and prompting me to post this. For all of you interested in my larger sized paintings here is what I have available at the moment. Enjoy!
“A Delicate Place”
48″ x 60″ – mixed media on wood
“Surrounded By Women”
approx. 54″ x 84″ – mixed media on two canvases
“Time Without You Drags Me Down”
48″ x 60″ – mixed media on wood
37″ x 53.5″ – mixed media on canvas
The following paintings aren’t as large as the previous ones,
but the definition of “large” varies from person to person.
“We Come In Peace”
24″ x 24″ – mixed media on wood
24″ x 30″ – mixed media on wood
$600 – available at Fiona Bleu Gallery in Morro Bay, CA.
To purchase please call them at 805.772.0541 – www.fionableu.com.
The shipping cost on these large paintings can get pretty steep, which is why you won’t see them on etsy. If coming into the gallery to pick one up isn’t an option for you just let me know which painting you’d like and I will get a shipping quote for you.
This week you get to watch a video of Sketchbook #9. It’s been a super hectic week setting up for the $100 And Under show. In fact, the big party for the opening starts in about an hour and here I am writing a blog post when I should be cutting my nails and taking a shower.
As usual we’re keeping busy with oodles of projects. Most exciting, probably, is that a new group show opens this Friday, March 18, 2011. The title is “$100 And Under”. There will be 40 featured artists and a little over 100 art pieces. It is quite an eclectic mix of work including everything from painting and photography to handmade bags and sculpted masks.
The premise for the show is “art for the masses”. With all the art pieces priced at $100 and under there will be no need to break the bank just to get your hands on some great art that puts a smile on your face.
The opening reception will be on March 18, 2011 from 8-10pm.
Feel free to RSVP on our Event Page.
This show will only be on display for two weeks.
We hope to see you soon!
As always, thank you so much for the continued support.
