On September 7th, the Freemans location of Salon94 in New York will be opening a small group show from Mary Frey, Pat McCarthy, JJ PEET and Tom Sachs (seen above). The artists met in a class taught by PEET at the 92nd Street Y and still meet weekly to make, fire, and glaze.

The list of participants includes Esao Andrews, Sean Cheetham, Natalia Fabia, Alex Gross, James Jean, Josh Keyes, Mario Martinez, Greg Simkins, Nicola Verlato, Eric […]
If you remember, we had the recently chance to share some photos with you of Kamea Hadar and Defer prepping for their recently concluded showing at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco. While in the Bay Area, the two Hawaii-based artists and friends took the opportunity to get up around the city with a couple murals. Mirroring their work for the gallery as well as their collaboration for POW! WOW! Hawaii earlier this year (covered), the walls were painted with the distinctive combination of Hadar’s figurative work […]
On September 25th, Eric White (interviewed) will be presenting new works in Milan at Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea. His second solo with the gallery will feature paintings and drawings collectively entitled Down In Front. The new imagery will no doubt continue his exploration of perspective as well as keep his characters on the road and will have an old school cinematic feel to it. Discuss Eric White here.

Several months ago, INSA was in Shanghai where he oversaw the completion of his collaboration with Architect INDJ on the decor of G九 上海 (G9 Shanghai).
