Showing at FIFTY24SF Gallery this Saturday, June 11 with a solo show called “In My Room,” we look at the photography of Swampy. We think these are what initial drew us to Swampy, and even though we know that the icon has a mystique and a powerful feeling to it, it is the photography that seems to carry the most weight, an authentic, organic essence of open freedom and exploration in an era where we mostly just find ourselves consumed in digital. These are storytellers in the original sense. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report staff
Alex Hornest, a Brazilian artist you should get to know, has a show opening in Brazil this Saturday, and because his entire press release was sent to us in a language called Portuguese, all we know is what you see on these fliers. But his work, as you can see, is real good.
As part of the third and final leg of Jeremy Fish’s The Road Less Traveled tour, he will be opening a show at FIFTY24 Portland (located at 25 NW 5th AVE, Portland OR, 97209) featuring all new works this Saturday evening. Jeremy will be there in all his bearded glory, there’ll be some Jeremy Fish / Blik wall decals around, Red Hook will be providing some refreshments, DJ 60/40 will be spinning some tunes, and KISS will be playing a set (ok, we made that last part up, got a little carried away). The opening reception will be going from 7pm – 10pm, so be sure to drop on by.
Join Vans this Saturday, June 5th to celebrate the opening of our new street store in Palo Alto, CA. The best part? Artist Mars-1(Juxtapoz cover #97 ) is going to stop by to do live art in the store and hand out limited edition canvas bags to the first 100 people that show up.
Come celebrate the South Bays Punk Rock History tomorrow at the closing party for “Punk Art”. I have a ton of old flyers and some album covers and posters (and one somewhat controversial drawing) on display. This scene is in part how I got my kick in the pants to make art as a living, starting with show fliers and band merch for my friends bands. The opening went off and I expect the same for the close, so stop by the Hermosa beach historical museum and be a part of South Bay history. peace. Craola
"Just a reminder, this Saturday will be the exhibition closing of the Punk Art exhibit at the Hermosa Museum. A 40 Year Retrospect of South Bay concert posters, show flyers, album covers and gig photos. This is a very personal project of mine that was 18 months in the making.
If you haven't seen the exhibit yet I strongly suggest that you come by. To make attendance easier we have extended museum hours from 12noon-9pm. Beer and wine will be provided from 6-9pm and limited merch will be on sale. All proceeds go to the museum. Remember that this is an ALL AGES event!" -Jani Lange
