Off The Wall Gallery show last night in Portland at Breeze Block Gallery. It was packed, rad stuff from Tim Kerr and Jay Howell. Rich Jacobs, Marco Zamora had nice stuff too. Sunfoot, the band Chris Johansen plays in was awesome…. after he played, he was slain by a rollerblader distributing flyers for an upcoming Slayer show. Wow, how weird, rollerblades, lamp strapped on his head passing show flyers.
TOMORROW NIGHT…COSTA MESA, CA: The Artery presents Suburban Nightmare: Punk In OC, a group show of artists curated by Jesse La Tour (Hibbleton Gallery), which opens July 8th with an opening reception from 6 – 10 pm. The artist line up include the talents of punk/goth legend Rikk Agnew (Adolescents/D.I./Social Distortion/Christian Death / 45 Grave), Edward Colver, Russ Pope (VANS), Paul D’Elia, William Zdan, Christie Yuri Noh, Burger Records, Mike Atta, and more.
The show will focus on the punk counter-culture history in Orange County and its relevance today in direct contrast to the stereotypes of the OC as a conservative, affluent, and materialistic. The show will exhibit and celebrate the underground culture that arose, and the punk artists featured in this show question cultural attitudes and present an alternative attitude of free expresssion.
This show is curated by Jesse La Tour of The Hibbleton Gallery in Fullerton as a part of a gallery swap so be sure to check out ARTery Gallery Director Tracey Taylor’s show at The Hibbleton “Hotter Than a Match Head: A Love Letter to the City” opening on July 1 during the Downtown Fullerton First Friday Art Walk!
