Tonight, Friday, July 23, at FIFTY24SF, we have "Henceforth and Whatnot" with Jim Dirschberger & Rinee Shah. featuring both their collaborative and solo animations, short films, and music videos.

Ferris, Jim, and Rinee all stopped by last night to set-up, drop-off, and assess the situation at the gallery. We snapped away when they weren't looking.
Ferris brought a baby by. It was his.

FIFTY24SF Gallery presents ‘Haricots Magiques: The Final Attempt by Porous Walker’ with an opening celebration occurring Friday, June 4th at 7:30PM. While conventional press release etiquette would have us provide you with a detailed account of the motivations behind the artists show riddled with flowery adjectives, this is a Porous Walker show; so instead we leave you solely with this open letter from Porous himself. Enjoy: Dear Reader,
I'm honestly a bigger fan of art than I am an actual artist. I've tried to stop drawing, sculpting, arting but I can't seem to stop. I'm addicted to that feeling of seeing amazing artwork, ideas and feeling the energy and spirit that created them and than allowing myself to let go and just make what I want.
I really try to work hard on my drawings, and I hope to live long enough to get to a point where I make something visually pleasing as well as purely concept driven.
I'm also looking for a job.
I live in Napa. I'm 35 years old. I want you and me both to laugh more than we don't and above all I want to inspire people to share what's in their minds.
My website is http://www.theothergoogle.com. My telephone is (707) 225-5173
Please come to my art show on June 4, 2010.
I am making some new artwork for the show, as well as creating a couple redux versions of some of my sculptures I made in the early 2000's.
I hope to have some free gifts for everyone that stops by the art show opening. I have also invited a few friends of mine to join me to share some of their artworks as well. Among those confirmed as of now:
Kristin Farr (http://www.kristinfarr.com) & Aaron Hodges
And probably a few more surprises.
Also, I have invited my good friends, 'Snugglemachine' to play some live music and compliment people who come to the show.
All the best,
Some More Surprises to Come
