Event Description Kim MacConnel is the first full-career retrospective to be presented in San Diego of this influential, San Diego-based artist. Kim MacConnel, a pioneer of the 1970s Pattern and Decoration movement, has uniquely and variously engaged the decorative throughout his career. The artist draws inspiration from such wide-ranging and multicultural resources as the textile arts of numerous world regions, found graphic images, and Henri Matisse. MCASD hosted MacConnel’s first major exhibition in 1976 and has since featured his work in both solo and group exhibitions. This retrospective seeks to go beyond a chronological examination of artistic development to evoke the experience of past exhibitions of MacConnel’s work. The exhibition will be accompanied by a 100-page fully illustrated catalogue including an essay by guest author Richard Marshall and an interview with the artist by MCASD Curator Robin Clark.

Event Description Since Basquiat, artists have continuously crossed the line between the streets and fine art galleries. On October 9, Thumbprint Gallery will cross this line with “Magnetism, The Power of Attraction,” which features the artwork of Maxx Moses and Isaias Crow. These artists combine elements of “graffiti” with a “fine art” sensibility. Moses, also known as Pose2, has his roots in graffiti, which he merged with figurative and surrealist elements. Crow, on the other hand, had an illustrative background and transitioned into graffiti, and then into fine art. Pose2 describes his work as a fusion of “Wild Style” and fine art. Wild Style refers to a complicated and intricate form of graffiti, which incorporates interwoven and overlapping letters and shapes, including arrows, spikes, and other decorative techniques. “Check out my present work,” the artist says. “My colors are brighter and my concepts are more related to nature but my designs still carry the energy of the streets.” Although Pose2’s artwork may be shown in a fine art gallery it still contains elements of an urban environment. Pose2, born in the Bronx and raised in Yonkers, New York, earned a BA degree in Business with a minor in Fine Art. He has painted murals and exhibited in Dubai, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Paris, Osaka, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The artist has also been featured in various books, films, magazines and videos. Crow draws inspiration from people and their surrounding environment. This can include a variety of sources from textures of old buildings with weathered down walls to mountains and other shapes and colors surrounding daily life. The artist sees details in life’s surroundings which people normally overlook, such as the “beauty in the layers within a puddle of water on a concrete or dirt floor” or “shadows and light reflecting off a window at the corner store.” Crow, also known as Crol, branched off from traditional illustration to graffiti at thirteen years old. He was inspired by heavy metal music and his cousin from Los Angeles who introduced him to the city’s emerging graffiti scene. After years of painting on the streets in New Mexico, Crow obtained a BA in Media Arts and Animation from the Art Institute of San Diego in 2009. He attended college while simultaneously creating a strong portfolio of public art, fine art, and digital paintings. In 2008, he created The Prizm Process, which is an organization providing public programs and services through art, culture, and civic engagement. The opening reception for show will be at Thumbprint Gallery on October 9 and will start at 6pm and run until 10pm. Complimentary wine and appetizers will be served. Event entry is free and open to the public. The artwork will be on display until November 7. Thumbprint Gallery is located at 2637 University Ave. in North Park.

Event Description Batik Workshop Ever wanted to learn to do batik? Now is your chance! Join us for a fun time and go home with a batik masterpiece!!!  Batik (pronounced 'Bah-Teak') is a technique used to dye fabrics. First, melted wax is applied to the fabric in the areas that are to be free of dye. The wax prevents dye from penetrating onto the fabric and therefore keeps those areas of fabric in their original color. Please RSVP to Jen Bottoms 619-892-3429. This will be held at Lake Jennings Mobile Estates, Lakeside, CA
