A friendly reminder, Jeremy Fish’s triumphant homecoming exhibition, Where Hearts Get Left, is coming down on Friday, September 14. So that means you have two days left to see it. We think you should.
Some people don’t like to interact with other human beings, so if you don’t like to walk into galleries, Jeremy Fish’s “Where Hearts Get Left” exhibition is now up online to peruse and enjoy. May we suggest a gander?
As you know by now, Jeremy Fish is set to open his first exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery in a half decade, with “Where Hearts Get Left” opening on Saturday, July 14. Along with the limited edition book we showed you yesterday, and the over fifty drawings, 4 statues, and six paintings in the show, Fish has 6 limited-edition, edition of 100, signed and numbered screen prints available at the show and during the duration of the show through September 14, 2012. Here today is our first look at the prints…
Just in time for his exhibition at our FIFTY24SF Gallery, Jeremy Fish is set to release a new limited edition book, Where Hearts Get Left; a collection of 50 drawings from the show. This book release is a pictorial history of San Francisco’s stories and heroes as seen through the artist’s eyes. Published by 827INK, it is quarter bound by hand in Koskin leather and boasts a phillipine mahogany cover. This body of work and book are intended to be a love letter to San Francisco, “The City That Knows How.” With a foreword by Tommy Guerrero, each book is signed and hand numbered by the artist and is limited to 200 copies. Where Hearts Get Left will first be available at the show’s opening at FIFTY24SF in San Francisco on July 14th, 2012.
We did a check in with Jeremy Fish at his North Beach, San Francisco last night, just to chat and take a few snap shots of what he has in store for his show at our FIFTY24SF Gallery, Where Hearts Get Left. All we are going to say is, you will be very, very surprised… there is a ton of great work going into this show… from the installation each piece of work. The Lower Haight is in for a special night on July 14…
FIFTY24SF Gallery, in association with Upper Playground, is pleased to announce a new exhibition by San Francisco-based fine artist, Jeremy Fish. Where Hearts Get Left is Fish’s first gallery show with Upper Playground in 5 years, featuring 60 new works inspired by and created as a visual love letter to the city of San Francisco. The exhibition will open on July 14, 2012 with a special afterparty at Milk Bar in Haight Ashbury. The exhibition runs through September 14, 2012.
For nearly two decades, New York-born, San Francisco-based Jeremy Fish has evolved from a leading skateboard artist to one of the most praised visual storytellers of his generation. Each body of work he produces becomes a running themed narrative, from the dark underbelly of the Barbary Coast to the reinterpretation of friends and influences stories. An artist in the same vein as Dr. Seuss, Fish has created
iconic characters that have grown through the years with the artist, a familiarity that viewers identify as an entry point into the artist’s own imagination and version of the world. Paintings are metaphors for larger storylines, bunnies and turtles reflections of our own path through life, and an embodiment that true folk storytelling is alive and and thriving in the technological age.
For Where Hearts Get Left, Fish has prepared six paintings, four statues, fifty drawings, six screen prints, and an installation specifically created for FIFTY24SF Gallery. The concept for the exhibition is the ever-changing social and physical landscape of San Francisco. “I have lived in this city for almost 20 years, more than half my life” Fish explains. “I have watched the tech boom come and go twice, and the many changes the city becomes subject to as a result. I wanted to focus on “what is it that I still love about this place?” Fish spent six months creating a visual love letter to the greatest city in the world. “I am begging her to not become a sterile West Coast Manhattan any time soon. What are the constants? What are the things I will always love about SF no matter what happens?”
As well as the original artwork presented in Where Hearts Get Left, Fish has created 6 screen prints for the show, each in edition of 100 only available through FIFTY24SF Gallery. There will also be a limited edition, hand bound book featuring 50 black and white drawings, printed in an edition of 100 in a wood and leather cover, printed by Edition One Books in Berkeley, California.
The exhibition opens on July 14, 2012, at San Francisco’s FIFTY24SF Gallery. An afterparty will take place at Milk Bar in Haight Ashbury on the night of July 14, from 10PM—2AM, featuring sets by DJ Aspect McCarthy, Edison, and Zman. The afterparty is sponsored by Upper Playground, the Vapor Room, and Tott Global. Jeremy Fish is a San Francisco-based fine artist who has shown in galleries around the world including Rome, San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, Milan, Mexico City, Warsaw, Cologne, Hamburg, Vancouver, Naples, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Zurich, Vancouver, and at the Laguna Art Museum. He has collaborated and exhibited with Upper Playground and FIFTY24SF Gallery for over a decade, the last exhibition being The Ghosts of the Barbary Coast in 2008.
As we have been teasing around here all week, we are getting set for old Uncle Jeremy Fish to come on home to FIFTY24SF Gallery for a brand new exhibition, Where Hearts Get Left. The show opens on July 14, 2012, but there will also be an afterparty at Milk Bar in the Upper Haight from 10PM—2AM. Make sure you tell your parents you are going to be out late that night…
