To celebrate the One Thousand Thousand reaching the milestone of 333,333 pieces of original art we had one of the largest retrospective exhibitions maybe ever. There are over 550 framed works on display covering the past 20 years of the project and this is the final week of the show. 

The show officially closes on Friday night and on Thursday we're having a little closing reception to mark the end of the First Third of the project and usher in the Second Third on the way to making a million pieces of art.

We're setting up a little painting station to do some of the pieces right there on the spot and everyone is encouraged to grab a brush and join in. We'll make sure that everyone who participates goes home with a piece of their own as a small way to say thanks. New work has been added since the opening reception.

This is a free event and is open to the entirety of the world. It's not anything like a 'typical art opening' and fun and spectacle are guaranteed.

The show is up until the 25th. It's unbelievable how great it is.

My buddy Stan installed his Ricoh Theta camera in the gallery and it captured 360 degrees of video during the initial hanging of the show through the opening. It's pretty fantastic to see it and if you're watching it on desktop you can grab and drag and pan the video as it's playing. On mobile you just move your phone around to see the different views.

Pretty cool for sure.

Some photographic image transfers using vintage drawings of the Northern Lights, Leonid meteor showers and volcanoes erupting. [And the Golden Gate bridge too.]

A recent set completed on January 21, 2016. Some found black and white photos were used along with some Pantone color sheets that were painted over in beeswax to add some pretty terrific textures.

For the past two decades I’ve been working towards the seemingly absurd goal of producing one million original, hand-made works of art. In that time I’ve collaborated with a number of friends and fellow artists to create new pieces for the edition and just recently the project has reached the The First Third.  

​While this isn’t a million pieces of art 333,333 paintings is still a whole lot and it’s worth reflecting on in some way. To celebrate The First Third of this monstrous endeavor we've planned a retrospective of the past work and will be exhibiting thousands and thousands and thousands of new and selected pieces from the project.
