Wow, What a show! Thank you to everybody who came out to the show on Thursday . And a huge THANK YOU to Paperworks Laboratories for their absolutely stunning print "Song of Songs" For those of you that were not able to score a print at the opening there are still a few available at Paperworkslab.com.
As for the opening Reception- the show of support was amazing. 7 o'clock rolled around and a crowd was already forming in front of the gallery doors. By 8 the place was packed to the brim! Fans flocked from far and wide to give props and take in the sights. Friends flew in from Mac's hometown Phoenix, drove up from La, San Jose, Seattle, and every major graf artist in the city stopped by to say what's up to the man of the hour El Mac.
Visitors had to maneuver their way through the massive crowd swarming Mac to say 'hello' and have their advanced copies of Mac and Retna's new book "Alianza" signed. Mac patiently signed autographs for close to two hours straight. His patience and humility won the crowd over and everybody left more enamored than ever.
Shots from the madness for your enjoyment:
A very special thanks to Juxtapoz Magazine for providing copies of the subscriber issue # 103 for fans
Upper Playground for releasing advanced copies of "Alianza" ( now available online at Upperplayground.com)
Thomas at Paperworks for his generosity
Alex at Montana Paints for hooking up the supplies
Dan at 1AM gallery for saving the day with the last two cans of black Montana in the entire city!
And everybody who came out to make the show a great success.
