Tondo at Spoke Art in SF

Tondo Group Show at Spoke SF

Reception Saturday, 5/6/17, 6-9pm

Show runs 5/6/17 — 5/22/17

Facebook invite here.

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!
