The Gallery is Open: Sunday, June 15

Dogtown Track
Beth Grundvig
44" x 56"
Pastel on paper, mounted between plexiglass.

WELCOME TO MY EVIL EMPIRE: Pastels, Photographs, and Signs
New works by Beth Grundvig, Daniel Dienelt, and Kyle Siler

Closing Party/Open Studio:
Sunday, June 15
1:00 - 5:00

Come see the works in this space in the air. As I sit here today, I am struck by how much the artworks in this exhibition relate to the built environment around me -- even as the pieces reflect the artists' reactions to their own.

Beth Grundvig: large-scale Oak-land-scapes in pastel
Daniel Danielt: Photo based encaustics
Kyle Siler: Installation in my kitchen (from $20, OBO, will swap for dirtbike parts)

LAST CHANCE TO HIT THE SOMETIME GALLERY THIS MONTH! Come enjoy a little civilized soiree. Visit sunny East Oakland for some super-fine art, Sunday Times, home-made strawberry shortcake, tea, champagne. My own works-in-progress will be display as well.

If you purchased a piece, consider dropping by -- art will be available to take home.
Or maybe you've had your eye on something?

NOTE: The Gallery will remain open in teeny-tiny form and the pieces will be for sale online through the end of June.

Kyle Says:
"This Gallery KICKS ASS! There are lots of great artists in this gallery with me. MINE is the BEST. And this is your chance to buy something of mine before I”m FAMOUS. I dont want to be Famous but its in my destiny and I’m not going to fight it. It’d be cool if you’d buy something and I made enough money to buy oil for my dirtbike. There hasnt been any gang related shootings in the neighborhood for quite sometime now which creates a much cheerier atmosphere for everyone. But if there is a shooting we will provide free beer and tell jokes. There is NO BATHROOM!"
