Driftwood Salon's 3rd Annual Emerging Artists Opening Reception

We had a great opening night for the 3rd Annual Emerging Artists exhibit.
I was really excited about this years show, as I always am, being an emerging artist myself, but also because it represented a milestone for me as a gallery owner and as a curator. Three years ago, when I hosted my first emerging artist showing, I was a little shaky and in someways, stuggling quite a bit with the decision of who to pick. We receive so many entries during these call for artists, but only have a limited amount of wall space.
This year however, though challenging, was approached in an entirely different way. I knew I wanted a broad range of  mediums, to have as diverse a show as possible. And just going into in with a clearer picture of what I wanted the show to look like, seemed to make all the right artists present themselves to me, seemingly out of thin air.
I'd like to give many thanks to everyone who submitted their works, and especially our participating artists, Steen Kjorlie, Gabrielle Curry, Joe Spear, Hugo Kobayashi, Ricardo Miranda, Charles Papillo, Joshua Coffy, Jake Kobrin, Alberto Ybarra, Patrick St. Clair, Johnny Ringo, and introducing Douglas Alan Struble. I couldn't have done it without you guys' amazing works filling the room!

3rd Annual Emerging Artist Exhibit 2013

Happy Spring time San Francisco!

I have been having a blast these last two months meeting some of our city's finest artists.
It's always such a treat getting to do what I do, curating art exhibits, but never so much as when it's with an emerging artist and getting to see them come to full bloom!

I think you will enjoy this lineup very much! The show opens on Saturday April 20th, at 5:00pm.
Come out and find some treasures!

Check out some images of some works that made it into the show below.
We will be featuring the works of Steen Kjorlie, Gabrielle Curry, Alberto Ybarra, Douglas Alan Stuble, Johnny Ringo, Patrick St Clair, Hugo Kobayashi,  Joe Spear, Joshua Coffy, Charles Papillo, Jake Kobrin, and Ricardo Miranda!!
