Tim Boxell - October 2018
Writer, television and film director, animator, and art school instructor Tim Boxell invites you for a close look an exhibition of his original MONSTER designs for the 1984 horror cult classic film C.H.U.D. (Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers).
The toxic C.H.U.D. came up from the sewers of New York City to terrorize the local population. The impact of the film’s title creatures has spread to many realms. The acronym “CHUD” became a slang word for kids in the 80’s, fondly used for diminishing the social standing of a fellow rival.
Tim worked extensively in the 70’s and 80’s underground comic world (Commies from Mars, Slow Death, Death Rattle, Snarf). His unique vision for horror, such as the credited inspiration for the “chestburster” scene in Dan O’Bannon’s story writing for ALIEN, can be seen in the design of these original graphite and marker character studies. He gives these monsters a tangibly vibrant pulse of life.
“Monsters bring on emotional reactions that we find entertaining even if we have our doubts about the wisdom of seeking them out. We like looking at monsters even if they make us feel fear and horror”.
Come see and feel for yourself…
Group Show - August 2018
60Six and Streamline present “Passage 3” a group photography show presenting work under the theme of transformation; political, psychological, cultural, environmental and technological.
Steve Molnar’s gelatin silver prints document the Nicaraguan people’s opposition to the government’s proposed canal, which would cut through the country as well as capturing daily ways of life in various communities, including the indigenous population of the Rama.
Henrik Kam’s photographic mandala images use google map satellite screen captures of images of troubled areas of the earth as the raw material for the work. The series “Anthropogenic Geography 2015-2018, Mandalas For Planet Earth” manifests healing energy, where a mysterious alchemy occurs from the artist’s process and materials.
Multi-disciplinary artist and composer Peter Whitehead, who has worked for years in music, sculpture and painting, shifts his eye to photography. His series of color iPhone photos capture the often ignored and seldom documented changing environment of the Bay Area’s Treasure Island.
This show also includes work by Michael Jang, David King, Pam Borrelli, Michele Willson and Los Angeles photographer Julie Green.

Kellie Jo Brown - July 2018
Based in Eureka, Kellie Jo Brown is inspired by the natural beauty of what many of us take for granted. The light, color and shapes that exist around us every day, and every night. Kellie scouts her local environment looking for inspiring visions. Visions that we see, yet rarely recognize as natural, situational beauty. This show is centered around her long exposure photography which enables the viewer to see the fine details of our everyday surroundings at night. It is an uncommon way to witness these scenes in a manner that illustrates beauty in often unexpected ways.

Mess-A-Jing A Mixed Media Installation
Addressing “The Lost of Authentic Communication”
I’m working with the concept of chance, as well as with my affinity for symbols and letterforms. There are 3 small series within this group of work. First, are works with vinyl letters on vintage cast off wallpaper in minimal compositions. These three pieces could read as simple poems. Second, the series of small negative space vinyl backings of the letters are semi-sculptural pieces, which have a chance, chaotic element occur from the gravity and electricity of the sticky plastic backing tangling up the material when pulled off. My role is to make order out of the chaos and create a composition that is both 2-D and 3-D on the wall. When taken off the wall they are destroyed, thus they become temporary installations. Third, are abstract paintings using type, tapes and mixed media.
The work speaks to our culture’s loss of authentic communication as well as the difficulty accessing “truth” in lieu of the randomness of the internet and digital communication and in the present political situation. My work as a print graphic
designer for many years enters into the pieces with my choices of utilizing letterforms as a medium. Visually, there is an action and a feeling of “a mess happening” and an effort to create order. The pieces ride a certain edge I like, which could connote language being at the same time incessant noise and sublime quiet

Ocean Beach Artists - June 2017
Fr. John Takahashi
In early 2013 several Outer Sunset artists, who knew each other through neighborhood meetings, classes or church, decided to create a local group to encourage, critique and support each other’s work.
For over 5 years now, the group has been meeting once a month. The meetings take place on 45th avenue, rotating among the various artists’ homes.
The group currently has ten active members who work with a variety of mediums. Including photography, drawing, painting, collage, quilting and printing.
Our community is named the Ocean Beach Artists, OBA.
