Friday, November 9 : “Found in Darkness” @ Book & Job Gallery : Christopher Burch & John Felix Anrold III

So here it is.  My last show of the year.  And what a year it has been.  In brief, Christopher Burch and myself will be exploring our own narrative mythologies that run through out our respective bodies of work, coming together at the Book & Job Gallery in San Francisco to allow them to create a conversation within the space.  Paintings, drawings, sculpture, mixed media, and collaborative installation work will bring the viewer on a journey through the space that illustrates how past and present allow us to construct our own mythological tales that will continue to evolve well into the future.  I am very excited to work with Chris again, especially after he just did a major project in St Louis and is in zone, exploring his vision.  Myself coming back from a bit of downtime after “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” and then Japan, am really looking forward to finishing off the year on a strong, a bit smaller, and more refined tip. This is great way for me to put a solid and concise close on 2012, which has been a monumental year, and give a little bit of forecast for things to come!  The show opens Friday, November 9th from 7-11pm at the Book & Job Gallery which is located at 831 Geary St. in San Francisco.  See you there. – John Felix Arnold III

Stand Tall III @ Old Crow was Awesome. 09/22/2012

So Saturday September 22nd, 2012 Terry Addison over at Old Crow opened the third installment of the “Stand Tall” series.  This group show has quickly become a very important happening each year for the Bay Area, specifically the East Bay Art Scene.  Last year it spanned two spaces and featured a live PA by Japanther.  This year it was much cleaner, simpler, with great attention to how the artists interacted, the overall layout and movement through the space, and wreaked of amazing, truly realized, well executed, beautiful visions from all 38 participants.  Barret Moore was there to document much of it, the Daily Californian ran a great little piece on it, and the turn out once again was phenomenal.  Japanther, even in their absence, was able to include a video of their shadow puppet play on the front of Old Crow during the opening.  David Polka, Ken Davis, Renos, Lauren Napalatino, Dana James, Christopher Burch, Kool Kid Kreyola, Spencer Keaton Cunningham, Dr. Sex, Apex, Chor Boogie, Tweens, and many many more made this an amazing happening!-John Felix Arnold III
