Helvella Art in Oakland, CA presents “Mushi Mushi”, a mushroom themed exhibition featuring 30+ artists celebrating the glorious world of mushrooms. The gallery name Helvella is taken from a genus of mushrooms that is endemic here in California, and they draw a lot of inspiration from the spunky, indomitable and magical spirit of mushrooms.

I had so much fun at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Soapbox Derby event at McLaren Park in San Francisco on Sunday, 4/10. Many (57) amazing derby cars made by local Bay Area artists competed for trophies made by local artists. Thanks to my awesome pit crew Mary Kalin-Casey, John C. Rogers, Stephanie Silk, Brett Durrett, and Tangee Boyce! And of course all the awesome SFMOMA folks and volunteers who made it all come together. Thanks to my friends who came out to show support as well. I was so surprised and happy to get the Fastest Car trophy made by the legendary Wanxin Zhang!!
Familiar Strangers @ WowXwoW
WOW x WOW is incredibly proud to present Familiar Strangers. Opening on wowxwow.com at 7pm GMT on 4th March and running until 25th March, the exhibition will feature over 90 incredible original artworks by more than 80 super talented international artists.
Many of the works of art we appreciate, admire and connect with in our lifetimes are created by people we don’t know, and will never know personally. Some may have been created hundreds of years ago by artists long since passed away. Others might have been created recently by contemporary artists living on the other side of the world, who we will never have any interaction with. However, despite not knowing these creators personally, we develop profound and lasting connections with their creations, falling in love with the imagination, vision and humanity within. The artworks provide us with wonderful insights into aspects of the creator’s being that resonate with our own, helping us form deeply meaningful relationships with these ‘Familiar Strangers’.
