"Move (#19)" “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.
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.

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...
A native of Queens, NY, Jordon Isip’s mixed-media works have been featured in publications like The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Time, The Atlantic Monthly, Adbusters, and Juxtapoz. He received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and his work has been showcased across the United States in various galleries. His work has also reached international galleries including the Musee D’histoire Contemporaine in Paris and the Galleria Comunale D’Arte Moderna E Contemporanea in Rome. He has claimed Brooklyn, NY as his new home since receiving his BFA.
Jordin has brought his knowledge to instruct at Rhode Island School of Design, Tyler School of Art, and School of Visual Arts. Presently, Jordin is an instructor at Parsons School of Design and Pratt Institute.
Brooklyn, NY is the current stomping grounds for Eric White. Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, he received his BFA studying illustration at Rhode Island School of Design. Eric then moved to California where he spent the following decade before moving to his current location. His art explores the metaphysical and those things that exist far beyond our perception. However, Eric never seriously considered his paintings or drawings until the end of high school.
Galleries across the United States have featured Eric White’s work and he has also been shown in galleries in Tokyo, Paris, Toronto, Belgium, and Brussels

Thank you to everybody who came out last Thursday for the opening reception of Rich Jacobs " Move #19"- "He said he was enjoying the donuts for the most part, and laughing hysterically." Some of the art community's most innovative illustrators, photographers, graphic designers, music makers, writers (JockoWeyland), and all around good people gathered to celebrate the opening of "Move #19". With wine from Bear Flag, fresh donuts from Bob's in the tenderloin (rumored to have killer fresh donuts at midnight), and milk for your donuts, and rad art how could you go wrong.
The stories flowed like wine as the artists, most of which are old friends, shared anecdotes about each other, and caught up on current happenings.

Move #19 "He said he was enjoying the donuts for the most part, and laughing hysterically."
We are rapidly unpacking artwork and preparing our gallery space for our up coming show "Move #19" with over 20 artists participating things are pretty hectic over here. We will be posting some sneak peaks soon. In the meantime, we thought you might enjoy this stop motion film that Dave Ellis and Blu worked on while at Fame Fest this year. I can't imagine how intense this must have been to execute. Well done boys. Very impressive.

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.
