Just when I finally get around to updating the page with the upcoming shows... the Shows page gets updated again!
July 3 to September 19 - "100 Artists See Satan"
Group Show @ Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, CA
Mark Twain once said, “All religions issue Bibles against Satan, and say the most injurious things against him, but we never hear his side.”
While 100 Artists See Satan may not exactly present Satan’s side of things, it does present a wide, albeit inconclusive, range of perspectives; it is intended to be a series of snapshots and ruminations, and it is an essentially visual exercise—there are no artist biographies or artist statements in the catalogue, just images by 100 artists. (Actually 115 artists’ works are included in the catalogue and probably a few more in the exhibition; we attribute this to satanic math and with having an abundance of incredible work that we wanted to include in the exhibition). Some of the artists are famous and some unknown; their approaches to Satan range from humor and absurdity to deadpan seriousness, from blatantly political to esoterically philosophical, from text to symbolic images, from art historical references to pop-culture icons, from overt graphic images to subtle, sometimes poetic gestures, from abstraction to explicit depictions of individuals or imagery, from the found object to the meticulously rendered painting, from drawing to photography to video to music.
Check out the GCAC's page to see the caliber of artists taking part in this show - should be a memorable show. Map/directions from GCAC and a map from Yahoo.
July 17 to August 17 - "Age Of Aquarius"

Was worried this one wasn't going to happen with Shag. Here's Yahoo's map.
