Did you know that Alameda is home to several art galleries and artist studios?
Every 2nd Friday of the month, they open their doors and invite you to visit their space. A handful of local business participate as well, with extended hours in light of the event. This Friday, PHOENIX is hosting a night market, where resident artists + guest makers will be sharing their work.

I’m excited to say that I’m beginning my move into PHOENIX, where I’ll have my own studio. This will allow me to give you a personal look into my creative world. It’ll also alleviate the mess I’ve created at home =) Until I figure out consistent studio hours, please send me an e-mail or text if you want to drop by.

See ya Friday!

Hog wild about art.

We’ve got an idea. We need your help. Please hear us out:

In light of our post ‘1985 was a good year’, we want to start a collective gallery on our site and dedicate a page [or two] of art work from you. At the beginning of the month, we’ll ask for photos and/or videos of your work based on a given theme. Along with your submission, we welcome you to include your mini bio, your inspiration, your dreams… honestly, you can tell us as much or as little as you want. If you’re shy or afraid of stalkers, give us an alias. If you want to air your dirty laundry, that’s fine, too; we’ll be happy to hear it. At the end of the month, we’ll choose a ‘best in show’. He/she will have full bragging rights, of course, and will be honored as such on our site. We plan on topping that off with a giveaway, freebie or promo of some sort, but we’ll need a decent amount of entries to make it work. We’ll feel out this first month and play it by ear.

And so, October’s theme is ‘Where the Sidewalk Ends’. Send us a drawing and/or poem that you [your son, daughter, niece or nephew] made as a youngster [age 10 and under]. It can be a fancy color-by-numbers that you’re proud of, or the coolest verse ever written on a napkin. Name, age and title of piece would be good to know, including anything else you want tagged with your image(s). JPG format would be appreciated.
Send all info to Thanks for lending us your eyes.
