We have a few bits of information about Jacob A Pfeiffer that you should know. First, Jacob won a Milwaukee, WI skateboard contest "best trick" award in 1989 by ending his run with a magic trick. That is pretty good. Second, his father is the artist/teacher/activist who organized the Clay Stomp, an American-Soviet mural project. That is really good. And thirdly, Jacob is part of a great group show opening this Friday April 19th @ John Pence Gallery in San Francisco that you truly must see to believe.

You may remember that we traveled to Singapore with Mary Iverson and Chandran Gallery earlier this year, and Iverson is now back in the States with a new series of works at Shooting Gallery in San Francisco. In Tangle, the Seattle-area based artist features new works plus a gigantic 8' x 14' mural on canvas. Because we became huge fans of her work through the murals, its great to see her bring this back for the new show.

ARYZ will be opening a new solo show, Style Is The Limit, at FIFTY24SF Gallery in San Francisco next week, April 19, and we got a few teaser shots from the gallery of the Spanish artist's studio space. The January 2013 cover artist has much anticipation with this show, a lot of the attention focused on the rare occasion the young artist has shown in a gallery setting. More to come...

A great looking show at Wendi Norris in San Francisco, Amir H. Fallah’s “The Collected” draws inspiration from not only the subjects of Renaissance portrait and vanitas paintings, but also the economic models in which those works were produced. Commissioned portraits traditionally involve visual symbols indicating the power, influence, and sophistication of their subjects. In this first exhibition of this ongoing global project, portraits have been commissioned and thereby sold before the opening of this show, which is a business reality rooted in traditions from medieval ateliers and modern galleries alike.

We are enjoying the paintings of San Francisco-based artist MIchelle Jader this morning. In her work she tries to explore moments when we willingly and unwillingly dive into the next phase of our life...

This past weekend in San Francisco, March 2013 cover artist (and often Juxtapoz @ Outside Lands collaborator) Mike Shine opened a performance/installation/exhibition at White Walls Gallery, Flotsam's Harvest. With full musical and dance accompaniment, surrounded by a massive body of work that describes and alludes to the great riddle and poem of one Dr Flotsam, the show was fully appreciated with some of Flotsam's hell brew. Or Jameson. Not sure.

Eli Ridgway Gallery is pleased to present Cuts and Splits, the gallery's second solo exhibition of Bay Area artist Christopher Taggart. Presenting hyper intricate composites of dissected and recombined imagery - (originally personal photographs, playing cards, and government compiled archival data) - Cuts and Splits functions as an investigation into the intensive process of ordering and reordering traditional systems of visual organization.
