Do Art Daily Show Part II

Yesterday I posted a few bad iphone pics in between the setting up for the opening and the actual show - I promised better pictures.  Here they are:

My Pedestal.  Had originally planned to scatter the
pebbles around the venue, as I normally do
on the beach, but thought better of it when I arrived.

A detail of my favorite pebble in the collection - my first attempt
at a free-form tree.  Not half bad, if I do say so myself (and shouldn't). Several
show attendees mentioned it as their favorite as well, so the feeling must be mutual.

Detail of the arrangement with a cairn in the back.

While many of these will be placed on a local beach as part of the
project, and some will be for sale on etsy, the pink embroidered "Namaste"
pebble will stay with me to help me remember Radhika.
"Lost & Found" a found beach object assembly by Roxy Heinz.
My favorite piece in the show hands down.

"Don't Look Back-Transition" by India Davis.

"sometimes it's all too much" by Dave Fass
(Please don't miss the giraffe on the side...)

Dave's placard noted that this was what runs through his brain
on a daily basis.  Me, too, Dave.  Me, too.

Well.. maybe I don't always see giant squids when I close my eyes, but close, enough.

"One Month Ride" by Sykkel Spruce.  Spray Paint and Bike Parts
on Canvas.  Bad photo.  Amazing Artwork.

"MK-NISHI Adaptive Interference Modulator Civilian Model f29"
by Edgar Milik.  The soundtrack to the show - Edgar created a loop
per day for the month of February, and compiled it all into an
interactive musical playground.  It doesn't look half as interesting as
it actually was.  We were all playing with it.
"Entombment" by Angela Van Lier.  Angela says, "I began this
project with an interest in symbiotic relationships.  For 29 days,
I would take a walk and not return until I found a honey bee
amongst my travels.  The found bee would be recorded and then
 encased in its own proper tomb of beeswax.  This piece deals
 with the concept of Colony Collapse Disorder, a phenomenon
where it is unknown exactly why many beehives around the
world are disappearing at an alarming rate.  Scientists have
many possible theories but if we aren't able to figure out the
 exact reason soon, our food supply is in direct effect."

Detail of "Entombment".  Simply stunning.
"Containers" by Blind Art Gallery

"Containers" detail. Yes, "Blind Art Gallery" means exactly what you
 think it does.  As a potter, myself, I am left speechless.

My new acquaintances, Sergio and Ant Dakini of AntiQuark
performing live in front of their videos.  Seriously great stuff. 
Sorry about the Flash going off during this photo, Sergio.  I didn't mean to.  

Yeah, this is dark, but I love how the videos add color.

There were lots of cool young people in cool clothes with cool hair and a dude that looked sorta like Mel Gibson, but I didn't hold that against him.  Space 4 Art is a totally cool space.  If I lived any closer, I'd consider having a studio there.
There was also a little bit of this happening. 
But, truth be told, I was doing the exact same thing,
seeing how I didn't know a single soul at the show. 

I've posted links to the individual artists of whom I knew have a working website.  If I have missed anyone, please let me know and I will do my best to fix that.


  1. Julianna! Thank you so much for putting my piece on your blog! Was so happy to see your pebbles next to my piece last night, I thought they really complimented eachother! Hope to see you again in the near future! Keep up the beautiful work!

    Thanks, Miss Kate! :)

    Sykkel, youa are Linked! Thank you!

  5. I loved that picture of the two hipsters texting at the art show! Classic. I do the same thing, but it sure is a funny way of depicting the level of enthusiasm San Diegans have about art.

  6. So nice to chat at the opening. I loved your piece.

  7. Anna, I was kicking myself that I hadn't taken a picture of you...

  8. thanks for putting up all the great pics of the show! i'm glad you pointed out the giraffe in my's one of my favorite parts of it. i thought your pebbles were awesome!

    also, i'm the texting dude with the blue mohawk...i will consider myself busted :)

  9. Dear Dave, Am sending you the bill for my new iPad, as I have just done a spit take of my morning coffee all over it.

    You were the coolest looking dude-with-a-blue-mohawk in the entire room.

    Now *I'm* blushing. Feel better? :)
