Tondo Group Show at Spoke SF
Reception Saturday, 5/6/17, 6-9pm
Show runs 5/6/17 — 5/22/17
Hey art pals! I have two pieces in this upcoming show at Spoke Art in San Francisco, CA. Spoke SF has challenged over 50 artists to create new works for this format driven show. Tondo is a Renaissance term for a circular work of art, either painting or sculpture, deriving from the Italian rotondo or round. Each artist was given only one stipulation — the work must be round, everything else is up to the artist. “Eye” chose to make a pair of Eyeballer eyes which can be purchased separately. Although I will not be attending the opening, I highly endorse this fun show!

Hey art pals! I have designed a new California Quail t-shirt for tasty craft brewers Cleophus Quealy in San Leandro, CA for SF Beer Week. In conjunction with this tee release, I will also be showing 35+ smallish hand-painted cutouts. The opening is Monday eve, 2/13/17, 6pm-9pm. Dogs, children, and well-behaved adults are all welcome. I hope to see you there!
From the CQ press release: Oakland artist John Casey is taking over the Cleophus Quealy tasting room on Monday, February 13th from 6-9pm with his cadre of complex characters, infused with dark magical surrealism. Enjoy some small bites from our food truck and a pint of our special SF Beer Week release of barrel-aged Cherry Red while taking in Casey’s custom multi-media work, specifically catered to our space. This will be your chance to get your hands on an exclusive SFBW collaborative tee, designed by Casey just for us!
The founders of Antler are thrilled to announce the opening of their second space Talon Gallery! With Talon the curators aim to lean the focus toward the darker end of the Antler Gallery spectrum. We’ll be maintaining elements of the nature-inspired themes and high levels of technical skill but also expanding toward some more folkloric narratives and figurative works.
We will open on Saturday, January 14th with our inaugural group show, ‘Familiar”. The title bears reference to the fact that while this new gallery may carry some resemblance to Antler it is an entirely different entity with a life and personality of its own. We love how this can be compared to the daemon spirits that are companions to witches and other individuals across numerous mythologies. Please keep your eyes peeled for some special surprises and giveaways to celebrate the opening.
