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.
This August, Zach Johnsen will be having his first solo show at Hellion Gallery. “House of Uncommons”, the opposite of the UK’s political system is the concept behind Zach’s show.
Check out some process photos.
Thank you, thank you to everyone that came out on a cold January night to support the gallery. Check out the available artwork from Troy Coulterman and the opening receptions photos.
Hellion is only 2 years old and I am amazed at how my little hidden gallery has grown. 2012 was an amazing year that included shows in Tokyo, San Diego and Portland; the release of my first book “The Tall Trees of Tokyo and consulting on the first ever Japanese food festival in Portland. I am truly grateful for all support and kindness. I look forward to 2013 and all the crazy shit that awaits!
Good times in San Diego again. Thanks to everyone who came out for the reception party on Friday. Will be posting the hours for the gallery soon for the rest of the month.
Also… big thanks to the Urbanist Guide in San Diego for the nice write up about the show.
Check out the reception photos.
The calm before the storm on Monday. Normal San Diego. Hanging art and eating tortas.
Someone hit a ball into the bee hive on Tuesday. Nerd immigration. Convention center came to life. Sparsely lit hotels looked like an old fashion telephone switchboard on the day WWII ended. All the art is hung.
Two shows this time in San Diego. I curated a pop up show at the Bagel Club Marina. The Wheel – Portland artist Natalie Phillips. Get a bagel see some stellar art.
