I had such a blast at the 33 Collective opening reception last night! Many of my friends and fans turned out to support the artists, the show looked great, and the sense of community in my co-op could not be better. We hung out well into the night after the reception in the Zhou B Cafe, talking art.
The Zhou brothers were surprised and amused that I did the portraits of them from their friend Steven Gross’s photos. I told them I am so impressed with their support for our gallery, and they humbly stated that they want to give as many artists as possible a chance at success and exposure. They are awesome!
Some of you asked for pics of the event, so here they are. Thanks to all of you for your encouragement and support these past few months while I completed the works for the show. Your kindness always makes my day. I’ll be continuing the Black Butterfly series for an upcoming solo show at 33 Collective. I’ll need many more pieces to fill up the 33 space.
Here’s what our gallery director, Sergio Gomez, had to say about the event:
“I hope you agree with me that last night’s opening was a great event and a fantastic kick off for Collective Resonance. When you think about the size of the space, we had a large crowd all night. I talked to a lot of people who were very pleased and impressed by the work selected for the exhibition. In my opinion, it is not the size of the space or the amount of works that makes a memorable group exhibition. Rather, it is the quality of the work and the diversity of ideas and styles that makes a group exhibition stand out from others. I thank you all for the hard work in bringing your best work and for making the opening a successful night.”
