I only have one more painting to restretch from the work I created at Bemis. It's a real pain in the ass to do, but I'm anxious to get them finished and out of the studio!
We stopped by Imagery Wine this weekend to sample the wine and see the painting that I did for them. It's on a wine label. Pretty good stuff and fun to see the work there.
Staysis, the 8' X 12" painting I did at Bemis will be heading to Santa Fe this Wednesday. More to come soon!!
Installed my artwork at Fourth Wall Gallery in Oakland. The opening is Saturday, May 12th. The reception is on June 1 from 6-9PM. Closing reception July 6th. Hope you can make it out!
All my art finally arrived from Omaha, so now to restretch these guys and crank out some new work! Studios a complete mess, ha!
While I was at Bemis I shot video of my residency experience as well as interviews with my cohorts. I started this rough this past week. More to add and share.
Jacob Stanley, one of the artist-in-residence at Bemis and I went to UNO to do a radio interview about our work and what folks might expect to see at the upcoming Open Studios on March 10th.
Yesterday, Nyame, another painter, and I answered some questions the 3rd graders had about being an artist. The class is in Oakland and my daughter, Jazmine is their teacher. It was part of a project where they'll be asking their parents questions. Great time for everyone!
I left Sacramento on the 5th of January and arrived in Omaha on the 8th. On the 9thh, I went to the Joslyn Art Museum and Bemis where I met Holly Kranker the Residency Program Manager, Chris Cook the Exec. Director and staff. Today the 10th, all the other artists arrived. I'm now in my studio a 2200 sq. ft. space. It's amazing and begs for paintings to be made. You can follow my adventure on my art Facebook page or on Instagram at jy4tes.
