Move #19, last day to check out the show is this WEDNESDAY.

This hump day (aka tomorrow) will be the last day to come explore Move #19.  With over 20 artists, this is a show that tickles the brain.  Rich Jacobs has a knack for mixing things up and for the 19th time he's hit the nail on the head. So you've been warned. Tomorrow is the last day to check out MOVE #19.

Tell your friends.

More Move #19

We know it's been a handful of days, but we do have a couple projects brewing that we will discuss with you in the near future.  Don't think we forgot where we were at on our Get to Know the Artists from Move #19 Tour: Up Close and Personal.  Check back in a few days for some exclusive sneak peeks.

Julie Goldstein

A California transplant from New Jersey, Julie Goldstein is a surfer and a painter who specializes in woodcuts.  She and her husband, Mark Tesi, recently realized their lifelong vision and opened Pine Surf Shop and Gallery located in Long Beach, New York.  Unfortunately, on December 20, 2009 a fire destroyed almost all of Pine Surf Shop – including some unique photos, original art, and vintage surfboards.  However, with remarkable resilience, Goldstein is back on track, making plans to re-launch the store.

Julie’s work draws inspiration from her experience in the surf community and her life in Brooklyn.  She received her MA from Columbia University.  Her technique is the process of drawing on wood blocks, carving, and then printing the cuts onto fabric, canvas, etc.

The Artists of the "Move"...

Since there's such a large number of artists involved in Rich Jacobs 19th installment of "Move",  we thought breaking it down into smaller bits would be a good way to help you get to know the art behind the names. Starting...

Rich Jacobs' "MOVE #19" opens TOMORRROW Oct. 1st, 2009


If you like art and/or donuts join us tomorrow for the opening reception of

Move #19 "He said he was enjoying the donuts for the most part, and laughing hysterically."

Rich Jacobs' "Move #19"- Opens next Thursday, Oct 1st.


MOVE #19

"He said- he was enjoying the donuts for the most part, and laughing hysterically?”

FIFTY24SF is proud to host the 19th installment of Rich Jacob’s renowned “Move” series.

“Move” is an ever evolving group exhibition that boasts a myriad of artists from across the U.S. Everyone one from Jordin Isip and Evan Hecox to Dave Ellis and Barry McGee have been involved in one or more versions of the “ Move” movement.  Rich Jacobs, the founder and curator, has been keeping the “Move” alive for over ten years and continues to bring some of the best artists together for the eclectically composed event. Mixing various styles and mediums to the point of (what would seem like) chaos, Rich builds an orchestra of sensory stimuli.

Who is Rich Jacobs?

This internationally renowned artist is recognized as much for his distinctive illustrations as his role as a successful and innovative curator for more than a decade. Jacob’s natural ability to unite the best talent under one roof stems from his genuine nature and, the desire to expose the public to good art and artists. He has a unique way of cherishing the everyday details of life, and recreates the chaos of the daily hustle by engaging over 20 artists to participate in each new edition of “MOVE” Rather than stick to one aesthetic, Rich pulls from a well of talent, mixing photographers and writers to graphic designers and illustrators for a well rounded experience.

We cordially invite you to join us for the Opening Reception
