During the month of March Ever Gold Gallery is pleased to announce a break from their traditional programming, instead, offering a plethora of environmental explorations in the spirit of Arts communities of Paris in the 1920’s and SOHO in the 1960’s. Their goal is to activate Ever Gold into a hub of artistic activity through three weeks of interactive installations, performances, lectures and music.

This sounds like they’ve got it all planned out for you. All you got to do is stop being a lame and get your ass to Ever Gold.

Events on the: 10th-12th, 16th-19th, 25th-26th.

Roll Up Gallery is proud to present:
“Strapped – Wrapped – Rapped” recent work by Terry Hoff

“Pop or surrealism,painting or collage, inside or outside, real or unreal,familiar or unfamiliar, bad or good, past or future, just present.” Futurism, mineralogy, surface fetish, wiley coyote, the road runner and disney all inform my reflection of the meltdown of “the American dream”. With an eye on alternative realities, through the lens of the drug
culture and utopian ideals.”  — Terry Hoff

Terry’s work as been described as, ‘the face of existential angst,’ because his vivid, dynamic paintings reflect his immersion in California’s suburban-youth culture. His work has been featured in galleries everywhere from NY the UK, and the Roll-Up Gallery is delighted to bring Terry’s established talent to SF.

Terry Hoff was born in Prescott, Arizona. He attended school at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, California, and the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California, where he currently teaches. Hoff will be exhibiting a collection of his recent work in his new series”strapped – wrapped – rapped”, The first 15 lucky people to arrive at Terry’s show will receive a present- painting by the artist.

And since we’re on the topic of Miss Van she will have a show starting on March 19th in France. After three years of absence from the French artistic scene, Miss Van has finally come back to her home country with a new series of works. Following her exhibitions in Los Angeles, Shanghai, and New York, Miss Van is taking a short break from her travels to show off her works in Paris.

Miss Van, true feminine figurehead of street art, started her artistic career in the streets of Toulouse. Since those early days, her style has greatly evolved, her latest series being an ode to classical painting. She has gone from painting the curvy, enticing pin-ups in the streets of Toulouse, to painting the melancholic and subtle works of this new exhibition. Her various travels and encounters have enriched her already complex world.

When: March 19th – April 30th 2011 – Opening ceremony March 19th 6pm-9pm

I enjoy checking in with Fafi from time to time.  Saw that she has new illustrations and I just wanted to share those with you. Curious as to what is in the making for her next release, and/or project! I really wish I were in Paris for the Colette x Chanel x Fafi event!
