Our ‘Edge to Edge’ exhibition traveled to Estonia beginning in mid-July. We’ve only been here a little over 2 weeks and it’s been a whirlwind – beginning with the standing room only opening at Tartu Art House as part of the Tartu Graafika Festival 2019, which opening on July 25 with performances and a large freestanding ‘wall’ designed, curated and built by Tase Tross, the fantastic staff of Tartu Art House, and members of Non Grata including it’s founder Anonymous Boh, and performer/artist Eric Piper.
Artists participating in our first stop include Peeter Allik, Toomas Kuusing, Fatherless, Eric Piper, Stu Rapaport, Jim Holyoak, Bob Branaman, and Robbie Conal.
This was followed a day later by a very successful opening reception at Fahle Gallery on July 27, which featured a sneak preview of Jean Michel Basquiat’s “The Offs” a beautiful limited edition screenprint courtesy Venice Modern Art, as well as an outstanding Andy Warhol, the Bananas image from the Velvet Underground album. Artists from Southern California and Mexico participating in that exhibition – on view until August 26 – include Sonja Schenk, MB Boissonnault, Bradford J. Salamon, Gay Summer Rick, Pablo Llana, Juri Koll, Ave PIldas, David Valera, Gloriane Harris, George Koll, Lawrie Margrave, Jeanne Dunn, Barbara Kolo, Catherine Ruane, Josh Bagel Klassman, Michael Arata, Reginald Van Langenhove, Adrian White, Ray Carofano, Nizaac Vallejo, Tanner Goldbeck, Paola Pineda, Bryan & Ryan, and Jeffrey Sklan.
The Edge to Edge exhibition makes it’s third stop in Parnu on August 10.
We were fortunate to be able to participate in I Land Sound on Saaremaa as soon as we arrived, which featured superb performances by Non-Grata, who invited us over.
Our Edge to Edge 2 exhibition has it’s final viewing tonight at ViCA in San Pedro during First Thursdays from 6-9pm.
