Left Coast Annual featuring Lydia Rae Black

This Friday you are invited to the opening night of the Left Coast Annual Awards Show at the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, featuring our own Lydia Rae Black.  

Lydia won the Juror's award for her work Burnside Schoolhouse 2 during the 2015 Left Coast Annual, and was awarded a Solo Show in the East Wing Gallery during this year's exhibition. Four of the works are quite recent, painted freshly this year, continuing her work on abandoned interiors and the culture of consumerism.  

The Sanchez Art Center is located at 1220-B Linda Mar, Pacifica, CA, 94044. Friday's reception will be from 7pm-9pm and will remain up until the 22nd of May. More info on the Sanchez Art Center here.

Content Magazine New Issue Pickup Party at AAW

The newest issue of local culture mag Content, "8.0 Explore", is debuting at our humble erstwhile skatium this Wednesday from 7-10. We're excited to welcome a new set of folks to see what we're working on, and Content throws a mean pick-up party.  Current subscribers, new subscribers and interested individuals are invited. If you're over 21, grab a glass of wine and stroll the studios.

Content Magazine released its first issue in 2012 and features local arts, culture and the people who are make our city what it is (and can be).  The Alameda ArtWorks has a feature, as well as Heroes Comic Books, Black Sheep Brasserie, Cinequest and more. Pick-up parties the place to meet the people in the magazine and maybe a new friend or two. 

Every new issue Pick-up Party features local food and drink and performances by the Southbay's finest. This is weeknight event you don't want to miss. 

If you've never visited us, we're located on The Alameda near the corner of Race.  Another way to put it is "behind Recycle Books".  We're very lucky to have them as a neighbor, even if it proves a daily distraction from working in our studios. 

More info on their Facebook page. The event is free and open to the public. Make sure you see the projection installation in the back, and see the artists in the Annex and Hallway.

New Website!

We're happy to announce changes to our current website, so please bear with us as we endure the sometimes painful transition to a new platform. The new website will integrate with the blog, newsletter enrollment and a mobile site.
