Guest: Our Art in Heaven
Written by Jerstin Crosby   
Monday, 08 June 2009 05:23
Jerstin Crosby, a member of the Raleigh, NC artist collective Team Lump, travels to Chicago to participate in a group show at Heaven Gallery. Words and photos by Jerstin Crosby who's part of the Raleigh, NC, artist collective Team Lump.

Just returned from an epic car ride with Orvokki from North Carolina to Chicago to Pittsburgh and back to NC. Set up some of my work in a group show at Heaven Gallery on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago, called "In That Gold Land". The show was put together by the raddest human I know, Thad Kellstadt, and was sponsored by Harold Arts. "In That Gold Land" featured work by Erika and Heidi Anderson, Corey Antis, Matt Barton, Jacob Ciocci, Stephen Eichhorn, Allison Grant, Adam Grossi, Jesse Hulcher, Thad Kellstadt, Ladyboy, Jim Lingo, Kevin Molloy, Jae Ruberton, Molly Schafer, Bill Thelen, Josh Tonies, Frank Van Duerm, Nicholas Wylie, and myself.

The night before the show opened on the 16th, Thad's lady friend, Jesse McLean had an opening for her solo show at Three Walls in Chicago. We also checked out the new contemporary wing at the Art Institute of Chicago. Yikes! It was ok, but totally packed as you would imagine, and there was a stage right outside the entrance with bad music blaring. Made it even more difficult to get into the art. Also, Orvokki and I had just been to the MCA in Chicago to see the Buckminster Fuller show and the Olafur Eliason installation, which we thought was beautiful. After the Heaven opening we drove from Chicago to Pittsburgh, and got a sneak peek at Josh Tonies recent wall painting at the Mattress Factory annex in the Mexican War Streets neighborhood of PGH. -Jerstin Crosby

I want to live in this painting.

This is one of my paintings on canvas from the Community News and Events bulletin board,.....I know what you did last summer.

Outreach feels good

UNITE!!!

I guess they were looking for something to do later.

A cordial meeting between strangers.

Matt Barton, former Pittsburghian, made this block party suitcase. Hard to tell from the photo but it blares booty music, and has a strobe in the back, all the characters move up and down to music...seriously.

Raddy McRadderson, Josh Tonies, 3 paintings

Orvokki and I stopped by to see the Olafur Eliason installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. This room soaked all color out of everything. Her bright red pants were gray.

Nicholas Wylie, of Harold Arts. They sponsored the show at Heaven. Good people.

Jacob Ciocci

We head for Pittsburgh on our long vehicular journey.

Pretty city.

Don't be bitin'!

We met up with Josh Tonies after his flight back to Pittsburgh to check out his wall painting at the Mattress Factory annex in the Mexican War Streets.

Its based on several experiences, some images he shot from a plane and a firework display he saw outside his studio where he lives and works in the town of Braddock outside PGH.

Josh had a very short time to install all new work at the MF. It's an annual show called Gesture, where they invite artists at the last minute to create some site- specific work.

Bye PGH

Goodbye roadtrip, goodbye big oil and AAA trip tik

Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.

Brian Barneclo's 225' Food Chain Mural

San Francisco based Brian Barneclo was commissioned in 2006 to paint a HUGE mural on the side of Foods Co on Shotwell at 14th Streets. After some time on its own, it got pretty taxed by misc graffiti and pigeon shit.


A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the city’s shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesn’t end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.


John Felix Arnold @BRIC House, Brooklyn

In the year or so that I've known Felix, almost every one of his shows has had a live musical element and it seems perfect that he would be included in a show called Art Into Music. He commandeered the corner of the gallery to create an installation that houses not only his drawing, but also an entire drum kit, amps and a dude playing a guitar. The warm wood paneling stands out in contrast to the matte grey boom-box tower and the muted wall of album covers and looks like a beacon calling to the crowd saying "this is what you shoud be looking at." However, it's not in a "look at me" attention-starved desperation, more like a welcoming invitation into his world.

Jeremy Fish Opening a Solo Show in August at FFDG
Tuesday, 15 April 2014 09:33

Met up with Jeremy Fish last night to catch up and discuss his upcoming solo show opening this August at San Francisco's FFDG. Don't want to give too much away, but the guy is very busy these days. You know the giant pink bronze statue will be built and installed at the corner of Haight and Laguna welcoming those to the Haight (check) in 2015? Going to be incredible.

Check photos from his last San Francisco solo show in 2012, and mark your calendar for August as his next solo show opens at FFDG.

Statue Of A Homeless Jesus Startles A Wealthy Community
Monday, 14 April 2014 10:20

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb. The sculptor, who has an affinity for street art, created it to remind us that "We believe that that's the kind of life Jesus had," Buck says. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." ~READ ON

Art or Vandalism? See the World’s First Graffiti Drone
Saturday, 12 April 2014 10:30

I attached a cradle with a spray paint can and other hardware to the drone. I created a series of paintings that are larger, about maybe 3 feet by 3 feet all the way up to 25 feet by 15 feet … And basically, I achieved the perfect air pressure, the perfect weight of the paint and the perfect materials so that the drone didn’t freak out when I attached these mechanisms to it, Katsu said. --continue reading

Think how high those throw ups can be now.

Tucker Nichols emailed over this new OB shirt he did for our friends at Park Life which can purchased here for $28.

Speaking of Ocean Beach, if you know, you know, but if you don't... it's not what the average american thinks of when thinking of a California Beach (missing 14 yr. old yesterday). Can't believe we used to drunk naked swim at 3am in the dead if winter... being surfers probably helped us not dying.

Is It Curtains For San Francisco's Art Scene?
Tuesday, 08 April 2014 09:35

We all know that San Francisco is going through aches and (growing?)/ shrinking artist pains these days as San Francisco property values sky rocket due to the tech infestation going on around the entire Bay Area. Maybe you work in tech and love it, but since this is an art website, we're interested to how this is affecting artists trying to make ends meet.

Some galleries have been forced to close due to 300% rent hikes. Many artists have fled to Oakland, LA and NYC in search of affordable housing and a more vibrant art scene... But we wanna know what you think of how it's going here in San Francisco. How are you making it work? What's your take on the art scene or lack there of? Do you think things are on the up and up or down and out here in San Francisco? Are artists a bunch of complainers and every thing looks great or is it curtains for San Francisco's artistic community? Thoughts

The Rena Bransten Gallery is packing up their 77 Geary space to make way for tech company MuleSoft

 

Nikki McClure at Needles & Pens, Friday 4/11
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:42

SAN FRANCISCO --- Nikki McClure, known for her painstakingly intricate and beautiful paper cuts, returns to Needles & Pens with an opening reception this Friday, April 11th - She'll be showing original papercuts for the book, "May the Stars Drip Down" - show details

This approach was born and bred out of the Olympia, Washington independent music scene. There, local artists emphasized everything handmade and self-published. The idea was to do a lot with a little. The result was a rich community sharing artistry and ideas. McClure found herself deeply embedded in this community which shaped an ethic of hands-on and accessible artmaking. - show details

 

Richard Colman Mural on 12th

SF --- on the corner of 12th and Folsom is this Richard Colman mural... Speaking of Colman, check this wonderful show from him in 2010.

 

Going Over Murals?
Wednesday, 02 April 2014 10:21

We've noticed this mural on 19th St here in the Mission has been getting bombed over the last week.

Is going over a mural acceptable?

Isn't there an unwritten rule of not going over murals?
