Yesterday I hung a show at Scheidenhelm Architecture at 732 Chenery Street #A in SF (http://sf-arc.com/page.php?id=10). Carl Scheidenhelm is the owner, and he is friends with Tachina Rudman, who is my friend from her work with the Open Studios organization ArtSpan and their Art for City Youth program. (http://www.artspan.org/). Tachina is the mastermind behind the art shows at Carl's, and does a great job featuring exciting work there by local artists such as myself.
The show took about 3 hours to hang, which might seem long for a show that has 15 paintings. Because this is a working architect's office, however, it is necessary to work around existing furniture and office equipment. In the short run, this can seem like a hindrance. However, under Tachina's direction, and with my wife Kate's help, we were able to display the work seamlessly in the space. The office is enlivened, the work is showcased, and it looks great.
For this exhibit, I am showing work that has a strong design emphasis. I use strong primary colors, and much of the work is very linear and geometric. Because of this, it fits very nicely in an architectural office, where it has qualities that it shares with architecture. We are now planning to have an opening on Wednesday, September 7th, at 6pm. I will post specific details later, but feel free to stop by the office storefront, gaze at the art in the windows, and perhaps knock on the door to see if you can take a quick tour. The exhibit will be up about 7 weeks, and will come down after the second week of September.
I am a San Francisco artist who enjoys making art and visiting art exhibits.
