Hashimoto Contemporary. Ground of Being.
i barely made it to this show i was pretty excited to be at for the opening reception at the Hashimoto Contemporary Gallery. fellow photographer Shaun Roberts had his own solo show. and it was a good one. he's done some great studio visits with artists such as brett amory and lucien shapiro. it's always really awesome to see photographers get their out in a form of solo shows, photography is becoming a part of everyone's life now with our access the cameras in our pockets, aka smart phones. so anyone can take a photo, but not everyone is a photographer. boom!

111 Minna Gallery. Acting Funny.
was stoked to see this show curated by the don himself andres guerrero at 111 minna. and the fact that two homies alan gonzalez and tim diet were hanging stuff on the wall, made me want to drink. i was feeling all the pieces and definitely came out with a favorite, maybe two, or three. here's a peep at the game.

War Horse Tattoo. War. 
another good show over the weekend. i haven't been to war horse tattoo shop since it opened by george campise over year ago? two years? less than a year? i actually don't remember but still, it's my first time. and it's such a great space. esp for a little war themed art show with some bad ass pieces from some bad ass artists. here's some shots from the opening reception.
