Art, art everywhereThe Arts Thursday, June 6th, 2013
There is a weekend of LGBT art openings before us; something happening every night and therefore something for everyone. Here below are the details:
First up, Friday, June 7 stop by AHF Pharmacy (below Martini’s above Fourth) at 6:30 p.m. and enjoy The Works of John Keasler.
Keasler works in many media but began painting in the mid-1970s, his work influenced by the freedom and beauty of Southern California. He began working in wood in the 1990s. He has shown his work extensively and facilitated many art therapy sessions but he might best be known locally as an art administrator and activist. He served as the exhibition coordinator for AIDS Art Alive and was the creative artist for the Dr. A Brad Truax awards for fifteen years. He contributes work for the annual Visual AIDS Postcards From the Edge benefit shows in New York and he currently co-coordinates the Art of Pride in conjunction with the San Diego Pride festival.
Keasler has volunteered extensively on behalf of the arts and artists in the community so show him some love, have a few Friday happy hour drinks and then check out his mini-retrospective!
Needless to say Keasler also has a hand in the second of the weekend’s art events. Heavens Above, Earth Below is a photography exhibit opening at the Art of Pride in North Park Saturday, June 8. This month Patrick McMahon and Robyn Garcia will be showing their work. Patrick will be exhibiting many new 16 x 20 prints that complement Robyn’s black and white infrared images of botanical subject matter.
The reception is from 6-9 p.m. and as always is timed in conjunction with Ray at Night.
Finally, Frame of Reference is a group exhibition that opens at the 10th Avenue Theatre building Sunday, June 9. Featured artists’ include Jenny Yoshida Park, Spencer Epps, Jody Mitchell, Timothy Bruehl and Elijah Rubottom. Meet the artists at the opening reception that runs from 6-8 p.m.
The exhibit runs June 6-30, in concert with Mo’olelo Performing Arts Company’s Extraordinary Chambers.
