3636 Project Opens at Paxton Gate’s Kids in SF Friday, February 21

3636_project

36 antique spoons rebirthed by 36 artists. 3636 Project opens at Paxton Gate’s Curiosities for Kids February 21. Reception 6-8pm. 766 Valencia Street (between 18th & 19th Streets).

The curator of the show, Courtney Cerruti, is always making the world around her more beautiful. She calls herself a maker extraordinaire and that she is. Doesn’t matter the medium (although I believe her heart is happiest dripping in paint) she’ll turn it into something magical. Somehow I managed to sneak an invite to participate in the show. Lucky for me, someone who wouldn’t dare call herself an artist (at least not in front of other artists), Courtney can see creativity in most people. I think it’s because she teaches so many workshops around the Bay Area and can bring out artistic qualities in all her students.

So here I am, with a spoon in the show, alongside 35 extremely talented artists. Here’s a peek at my spoon. Come check out the rest! Some are already teasing us on Instagram #3636project

Hats off to Cooper Artist Housing Open Studios

I had a blast at the open studios event at Cooper Artist Housing in West Seattle this past weekend. Painters, sculptors, jewelry makers, writers, actors, musicians galore opened their homes and talents to the public for a fun-filled Saturday. Here’s a peak inside:
