The Compound Gallery, in Oakland, CA presents "Happy Accidents," a solo show featuring my recent foray into color. For years I have worked mostly with black, white, and grey (and occasionally reddish-orange-brown) in ink or pencil. Recently I’ve experienced a color epiphany, with a new cast of characters in the form of paintings, drawings, and sculpture. Come out and see the technicolor, recessive, gene-pool family. Show pics here. | East Bay Express review here. | Oakland Art Enthusiast feature here.
NIAD Art Center presents: The pilot episode of "The Art Show" talks with Oakland artist John Casey about his drawings and sculptures, seeing his art tattooed on folks and covering the beginning of the East Bay art scene as a blogger. Oh yeah, and what’s really in "ham" salad. Casey is one of the more than 80 contemporary artists who generously donated work to our annual fundraiser Win Win 2. Yeah, we decided to give podcasting a whirl. "The Art Show," produced by and recorded at NIAD Art Center, is hosted by Gallery Director Tim Buckwalter and Gallery Assistant Katie Johnson. Each episode features an interview with a local, national or NIAD artist talking about contemporary art… with a few brief, but interesting asides. Thanks for tuning in.
