Most galleries like to pull off a good group show for the summer, and Joshua Liner Gallery has put together a solid one with "Summer Mixer 2015," featuring a group of artists we have really had our eye on recently. Of course, Mars-1 who has been on the cover of the magazine you may already know, but we love the direction Eric Shaw, Libby Black, Elise Ferguson, Kristen Schiele, and the others in this show have been going. Take a look at the gallery for some of our favorites in the Mixer that will be open now through August 21, 2015.

As you maybe saw on the site last week, we did a studio visit with San Francisco-based artist, Mars-1, as he prepared for his solo show, "Toward A Distant Dawn," at Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles. That show opened this past Saturday, and we got in the old van and drove down to the Southland to see our neighbor show off his new paintings and impressive bronze sculptures. Don't try and lift those. They are heavy.

Towards A Distant Dawn is an exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by San Francisco-based artist Mario Martinez (aka Mars-1) opening at Martha Otero Gallery this Saturday, June 7th, 2014. Mario Martinez's concepts are informed by cosmology, ufology, altered states of consciousness, his psyche and its relationship to space.

We haven't checked in with former Juxtapoz cover artist Mario Martinez (MARS-1) in a while and were excited to find out after a recent chat with the San Francisco-based painter that he has released a print from his 2012 collaboration with Oakland-based artist Brendan Monroe. The release follows several other print releases and another fantastic collaboration with another Jux favorite, Alex Grey.

Mars-1 was recently down in Mexico City at the same time we happened to be working in the mega-city, so we decided to hang out with him while the San Francisco artist painted this mural. The fun part is that if you ever wanted to Google Mars-1 Mexico City, you get Jared Leto's band 30 Seconds to Mars. We digress.

Everything Under the Sun will feature a series of new paintings from the SF-based artist (and former cover artist), and Colin M Day shot a preview video of Mars' in his studio.
