Geography, Ghouls, and Girls

This weekend there are three opportunities to see art, make art and hear art with an opening, a photo safari and a live reading.

Friday night, the freshly opened Double Break gallery and store is premiering Horror Days, an exhibition featuring works by Rhode Island-based artist James Quigley, aka GUNSHO. The ongoing series Demonology is a collection of illustrated prints described as a “modern interpretation of demons classified in the occult text known as the Goetia”. Spooky. The opening is this Friday 6-10pm.

Saturday afternoon, the artists behind The Far East, a locally-based lit and visual arts journal are taking their first photo safari out to East County. Travelling by trolley, the group is meeting up cameras in hand with adventure in mind at the Arnele Stop on the Orange Line, 2pm. Most San Diego natives know East County by the lifted trucks, its unbearably hot summers and freakish charm. Yogurt Mill anyone?

If you can’t make it there’s still time to contribute, as the journal has extended the submission deadline for original poetry, non-fiction and visual art inspired by “the places, people and oddities that shape East County” til the end of the year. Submit online at sosayweallonline.com. For meet up info, contact Mindy Solis at mindydsolis@gmail.com. 

On Saturday night head out to North Park for Masked/Unmasked at Green Scene Gallery @ Zagrodnik + Thomas Architects. Produced entirely by women, Masked/Unmasked is a visual art and live literature performance exploring the perception and self-presentation of women. The show features photography by Adriene Hughes and Rebecca Webb and performances by the female writers and performers of So Say We All. Doors open at 6pm, performance begins promptly at 8pm.

Double Break is located at 1821 Fifth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101

Green Scene Gallery is located at 3956 30th Street, San Diego, CA 92104

New Month, New Art

Even as Arts Month in San Diego is ending, October is starting with a bang. This Saturday, Helmuth Projects and disclosed unLocation are hosting two openings featuring sculptural work by local artists.

Located at the Library Lofts downtown, the newly opened Helmuth Projects will present STRICKEN, a real-time endurance installation by Jenna Morrow. For 24 hours Morrow will knit without stopping, a feat she describes as “an absurd attempt at a simple task” with the goal of “reducing control over the body and process so that the results are autonomous from the intentions." The performance will begin promptly at 6am on Saturday and The Scarf will be considered complete Sunday at 6am. If you can’t make this one, there will be a live web-cam feed, but the unique nature of this exhibit makes it an art event not to be missed.

Over in South Park, disclosed unLocation will present Partial Knowledge of Things, a solo show by Josh Jon Miller, a resident artist at Space4Art. Miller will exhibit an array of sculptures, figurines and paintings in the cozy 10'x20' gallery space. From the artist: “Objects are seen as autonomous things, made, used and forgotten but they are more like limbs and surrogates of the owner - physical and psychological parts of our identity.” disclosed unLocation will open its doors to the public from 6-10pm also on Saturday, October 1st.

Helmuth Projects is located at 920 E Street, Suite 103, San Diego - 92101

disclosed unLocation is located at 1925 30th Street in South Park - 92104
