Tonight, .T.F.R. Gallery in San Diego is opening John Van Hamersveld: Prints from 1965 - Present, a solo-exhibition of framed prints from the renowned and prolific graphic artist. Hamersveld has been producing images that have defined the visual representation of surf and rock ‘n’ roll culture for over 50 years. Starting off his career with the immensely successful movie poster for The Endless Summer in 1966, Van Hamersveld’s influence on the world of graphic images was immediately profound. From there he moved on to produce over 300 album covers!

.T.F.R. Gallery is pleased to present Harsh Park, a solo-exhibition featuring new works by Brooklyn-based artist, writer, and curator Louis Schmidt. The title “Harsh Park” plays with the collision between severity and tranquility, progress and disguised regression. Beginning with inspiration from current news events, Schmidt pushes towards more oblique observations and an abstracted consideration of our relationship to the space that our events occur in: psychological space, political space, geographical space, and especially historical space.

.T.F.R. Gallery presents Fiction Alters Form, featuring artists Joshua Miller, Matt Rich, and Joe Yorty. In selecting Matt Rich and Joe Yorty for the exhibition, Joshua Miller (who we asked to choose work to be put in relation to his) wanted to consider the ways in which symmetries of form gave way to asymmetries of intention. Formally, all three artists conflate expectations of two and three dimensional space, painting and sculpture, surface and volume. However, beyond those formal congruencies, the material choices, vantage point, and intention of each artist diverges.

We are almost, so close, to the dawning of Spring, and we think its good timing for a new album from San Diego band Wavves. The album title, Afraid of Heights, also has a track by the same name, and a video of lo-fi, Super 8, drag queen night out... and what we call Wednesday.
