Andy Ralph Takes Us to the California Biennial

Musician and artist Andy Ralph and his freewheeling imagination are at it again. By taking ordinary objects and rearranging them to create improbable situations, Ralph splits open our idea of the commonplace where industrial methods create unusual yet hypnotizing art.

His most recent work, Lawn Chairs, was part of one of the summer's more picturesque group shows, Here Not There at MCASD La Jolla where he joined some of San Diego's most well known and prolific artists.

Ralph will be showing his latest installation at the 2010 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art which surveys the state's "most innovative contemporary visual artists."

You can see Ralph's work at the California Biennial showing October 24th through March 13th, 2011 alongside a strong San Diego cast headlined by David Adey and Brian Dick.

Sezio Presents : Four Day Weekend featuring The Dodos, Avi Buffalo, Dominant Legs, and The Tree Ring

In March of 2009, Sezio hosted Live @ Luce Loft in San Diego's East Village. The five-night series paired ten emerging local acts in an intimate living room setting, and proved to be a landmark event in San Diego's current music scene. We're taking things up a notch in 2010, doubling the size of the living room, and showcasing some of our favorite California-based bands. Sezio is ecstatic to announce Four Day Weekend, headlined by The Dodos, Avi Buffalo, Dominant Legs, and The Tree Ring.

The four-night series will go down Thursday, November 4th through Sunday, November 7th at Sushi Art (also in SD's East Village).
