Up in the members section, I have finally added my portfolio… so if you wanna see what I’ve been up to, there it is.

Gotta make a few changes to the Projects section this week too – and make a separate reviews section, so come back and see if I can actually accomplish that this week.

Marlo Marrero has facilitated an engaging community based, public art project with a group of young photo students (girls ages 10-17) in Hartford, CT. This series of portraits of their Heroes is posted on their website Act Like You Care as well as displayed on a Hartford public bus. “Hartford is a classic small city of contemporary America, bustling by day and struggling by night. Hartford has a unique population of predominately Caribbean and African American peoples. And unfortunately the art scene in Hartford does not reflect this…People will view photographs and text of and about important, but not necessarily “well known” people from our neighborhoods within Hartford and the surrounding communities.”

Coming up this week:

Rise Industries will be screening the video “Traveling to Infinity” as a part of the group show “Skin” put together by I/O at the Quotidian Gallery in San Francisco.

In “Traveling to Infinity”, the viewer glides along a picturesque California highway – caught in a repeating moment of double vision. In the center of the frame the highly polished mirrored surface of a tanker truck reflects the highway peeling back behind the traveler, obscuring the view ahead of the road inexorably scrolling towards them. This position, between projected and enveloping scenes, between gleaming surface and unfolding space, between the recent past and the fleeting future, establishes certainty in the uncertain and stakes out the in-between state – hanging on to it even as the bouncing movement of the camera threatens to break the moment.

The gallery is located in Suite 252 of the Phellan Building on the corner of Market and O’Farrell Streets in downtown San Francisco, near the Powel Street BART/MUNI station. It is open from 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

A reception will be held on Thursday the 22nd (8 or 9ish to 11pm, contact gallery for more info) with video projected on the glazed exterior wall of the gallery – visible from both inside and from the street below.

Closer to home, Rise Industries will be showing two works at “Pacifically Designed” opening at Gallery 825 on Friday the 23rd (6 to 9pm). A Rise Industries Art Product, “Pace Building, Windows 2” will be shown, as well as a work from member Michele Jaquis. Michele’s piece, “Excerpt from Unimaginable” is an artifact from a larger installation which is still in progress.

Gallery 825 is at 825 La Cienega, south of Santa Monica Blvd.

If you live in LA, you have probably seen Tofer’s work around.. posters or paintings scattered about the city – or even in a gallery or at Otis College of Art. If you don’t live in LA, you might have seen his work anyway – if this is not the case, now you can check it out. here. Thanks to AK for making it known he has a website now.
