Artist Profile : Chris Puzio

It's always great to see two friends work together, especially when they combine to make something beautiful.  Chris Puzio is an architect, designer, artist, and teacher at Woodbury, and is also the latest focus of image-smith Charles Bergquist.  Charles followed Chris around to six different projects over the course of 14 months.  The result: an amazing 10-minute artist feature.

I A Not A Hipster : SD Premiere

The film we've all been waiting to see, Destin Daniel Cretton's I Am Not A Hipster, will make its San Diego premiere at the Museum of Photographic Arts on Friday, May 11th.  After debuting at Sundance, and getting rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone, I Am Not A Hipster will return to its home turf.  The feature length film is set in San Diego's art and music scene, highlighting quite a few local bands and musicians throughout the film and soundtrack.  Destin also enlisted Joel P West to compose the film's original score and write an album's worth of songs for the film's main character.  That side project has been dubbed CANINES, and you catch a rare live performance from them at the San Diego premiere.

On Friday, May 11th MOPA, San Diego Film Festival, and Sezio will host a double screening of I Am Not A Hipster, at 6pm and 9pm.  In between screenings there will be a cocktail reception and a live performance from CANINES.  Grab your tickets here, and don't wait, we are expecting the evening to sell out.  If you haven't seen the trailer, you can view that below.

Habitat House : Birthday Show

Habitat House is returning from winter hibernation this Monday to open their first art exhibit of the year. Birthday Show features two bay area artists, Andrew Heine (left) and Eric Taggart (right), on their actual birthday, April 30th. These two former San Diego residents are near and dear to our hearts, as they were both influencial players in Sezio's formation in the early 2000's. Their contrasting styles will be on display from 6-10pm Monday evening at 1008 21st Street. Cruise out to see their new work and partake in the evening's dialogue.

Re-Gallery : The Salton Sea Studies

Adventurers, Wes Bruce and Marcus Price, headed east to the Salton Sea for a few days, taking on the alter egos as they documented their surroundings.  Their findings are on displayed at the Re-Gallery in Solana Beach through May 30th, 2012. We highly recommend you check out this really unique exhibit!

Harriman, Fawcett, & Falcon Present: the Salton Sea Studies: a Visual Representation of an In Depth Exploration. The exhibition will examine the Salton Sea from its rise as a popular recreation destination in the mid-20th century to its decline into a harsh, ecologically devastated landscape. Historical figures Harriman, Fawcett and Falcon – an unlikely trio of disgraced captain of industry, archaeologist and explorer – document their individual experiences at the Salton Sea via installation, illustration, hand drawn maps, case notes of their findings, soil samples, and photography.
