This Friday, April 10th, 2015 San Francisco-based artist Casey Gray will present a new series of paintings for his first show at Park Life Gallery. The show titled Wave Pool, will feature Gray's “wavy” paintings that depict universal symbols of everyday life in a wavy or rippled motif that communicates a feeling of uncertainty or mistrust; a general cynicism related to the current changing socio-economic climate and related identity crisis of San Francisco.

Serena Mitnik-Miller has a new body of work up at Park Life Gallery in SF's Mission District. The work, entitled SWIRL, features a series of watercolor on paper with abstract, free-flowing patterns and fluid shapes. After seeing her work at Mollusk and Joshua Liner in recent years, this is another great body of work that you should check.

We like Marci Washington, so much so that she has been a cover of Juxtapoz and a cover of the Juxtapoz Dark Arts book. The Bay Area artist just released a new book of her own, For Forever I'll Be Here, and will be having a book signing tonight, July 18, at Park Life Mission from 6—8pm. Go check it out, get some paper love, get it signed.

We are going to check out the new exhibition by one of our favorite artists and friends, Hilary Pecis, who is opening "Crash" at Park Life in San Francisco on Friday, April 18th. Pecis first caught our attention, and was featured in our print edition, for her amazing mixed-media collages that featured found imagery on the web. For "Crash" Hilary Pecis presents a series of collages composed of large scale photos of high profile NASCSAR crash scenes that were cut up and reassembled in order to present a reinterpretation of the events.

Sometimes the best part about skate deck art is when an unexpected artist get the right graphic created. I wouldn't think of British artist David Shrigley to be one of the skate graphic types, but his fantastic "Politicians Make Me Sick" deck for our friends at Park Life in San Francisco works just right. Made in a limited quantity of 150, the deck is going for $125 on the Park Life site.

When we featured Evah Fan in the magazine back in October 2010, she was living in Stockholm, Sweden, making intricate illustrations that, and as Kristin Farr wrote at the time, were "unintentionally puzzling." Now back living in Oakland, California, perhaps things will get more puzzling or clear as Fan is set to open What Have You at Park Life in San Francisco on August 31.
