April is a busy month!

April is a crazy, exciting month for me and many artists in San Francisco. last weekend was Open Studios in SOMA, the south of Market district. i went to two HUGE studios with so many artists my head was pleasantly spinning! i saw 17 artists at Arc Studios, 1246 Folsom St. @ 9th. this place is very active, more than just artists studios they regularly have juried shows, workshops and classes. i will be taking a silk screening class with Mike Kimble, a fantastic artist I know from City Art.
i also saw 35 artist atSOMA Artists Studio @ 689 Bryant St @ 5th. wow were these incredible artists or what. i seriously was inspired by the quality of work and the diversity of media. both of these deserve a post of their own cuz now I want to talk about all the artists I met!
Now i have many exciting events coming up. Thursday April 7th (yes that's tomorrow!) we're having an opening at Flax Art and Design, @ 1699 Market St. for top artists in the Mission. and my work is among them! here's the details:
Mission Artists United Exhibit, Artists Reception
Thu, April 7, 6pm – 8pm
Flax Art & Design
1699 Market St., San Francisco
Come see samples from Mission Spring Open Studios artists at the first Mission Artists United Juried Show. Show runs from April 1 to May 1.

Flax has been really active lately in supporting Mission Artists, including live artists painting events. Mission Artists United is a new artists group that has come together to organize open studios and other events.

But before the Mission Artist United Open Studios, which includes art studios throughout The Mission, I have Open Studios organized by Art Explosion, wherein my studio resides! this event is this weekend!!!! April 8 - 10th.

we are open Friday 7 - 11PM, Saturday and Sunday 12 - 5PM. there are 2 locations, my studio is at 744 Alabama St. (19-20th st) studio #379, that's on the third floor all the way to the big windows!

then next weekend, April 15-16th we again have Open Studios with all the Mission Artists United. you could come to both and see different work because after this weekend i'm delivering 8 super favorite images for the Serenity Spring show at UCSF. and I plan on making a load of wearable art in-between. that's all the work I planned on getting done this week!
And there's more! part way through April we are hanging the Serenity Spring show at UCSF WOMEN'S HEALTH CENTER on Floors 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
2356 Sutter St (x. Divisadero) SF, CA
the Opening is April 27th or you can contact @ to schedule a tour. Matt McKinley curates these shows and others for emerging artists. check out all the great things he does for the San Francisco artists community!
and all month long you can see my B&W work at City Art 828 Valencia. if you want to go when i'm there i'm working April 20-21 12PM to 4:30PM.
City Art is a cooperative artists' gallery which is worker owned. we take full responsibility for the gallery, including jurying in new members, operating the gallery and even painting the walls every month for our new shows!
