This group show connects the distant fragments of Miami and Los Angeles in a ritual gathering, an assembly of video art just steps from the global gathering of Art Basel Miami Beach. Joined in a one-night wedding of circumstance from opposite coasts, the participating artists share their electric expressions in the intimate sanctuary of Miami.

Art House Sketchbook Project

posted by on 2009.06.29, under News

I was part of a sketchbook show that travailed to a bunch of cities and galleries this summer. The guys over at art house do some really great work and bring together a bunch of talented artists. The show titled “The Sketchbook Project” traveled to 7 cities and just finished in Chicago. There was some pretty sweet press for the shows and a cnn interview so i have attached some links and some pics of my sketchbook.

Way to go Art House keep up the great work!
