My second book, “The Tall Trees of Portland” will be released next month along with a group show featuring all the artists in the book on April 3rd. This past Thursday night in the gallery we gathered everyone from the book together for a private party and signing event. Spectacular night to say the least. So much talent in one room. I admire and respect every single one of these folks. Thanks to Overcup books for publishing my books in a time when nobody gives a shit about books. Big thank you to Sizzle Pie and Gigantic Brewing Company for supporting the arts with the best pizza and beer in Portland. Thanks to my new gallery assistant Lauren for taking photos all night.

Check out this sort of 2D piece that AJ Fosik made for the Reverse Engineered show curated by Hellion, currently showing at Antler Gallery.

Part 1 of our 2 part show this month featuring AJ Fosik, Jshea, Souther Salazar, Troy Coulterman, Michael Alm and Yosakay Yamamoto opened last night.
Part 1 featured sculpture work from each artist at Hellion Gallery. For part 2, I will be curating the Antler Gallery space. This part will feature 2d companion pieces to the sculpture work from each artist.
Hellion Opening Reception – February 13th at 6pm (show closes on 3/1)
Antler Opening Reception – February 27th at 6pm (show closes on 3/29)
Sorry everyone, the weather just wouldn’t cooperate with our art opening tonight. It’s complete bullshit and I am writing a letter to mother nature regarding this ridiculous situation. Reverse Engineered will open this coming Thursday, February 13th at 6pm
This news did allow Souther Salazar to breath a sigh of relief and take a break. Nap time.
