[1st Annual] SERIGRAPH: Group Exhibit @ Spoke Art [SF]

We’ve seen plenty of great group exhibits over the years and their appeal is layered.  With the themed and/or tribute shows, it’s great to see the subject matter filtered through the various interpretations and reinterpretations of the individual artists.  What adds to them further is the fact that, much of the time, the contributors operate through a number of different mediums, which affords us the opportunity to witness everything from original paintings and prints to paper cut outs, sculptures, and beyond, all within one event.  Then there are the shows with more restrictive guidelines, which have their own strength, forcing the artists to produce through a more focused lens within limited parameters to produce in a way that they may not have otherwise.  In the former, print work almost always seems to be represented, but it’s much rarer for us to see a show dedicated solely to that discipline and highlighting the unique nature of that skillset and those who produce through it primarily.  On November 30th, Spoke Art will be hosting their first annual Serigraph exhibit for just that purpose, bringing together an impressive list of gallery regulars like Rhys Cooper, Chuck Sperry, and Sam Wolfe Connelly, with famed poster artists like Marq Spusta, Jermaine Rogers, Justin Santora, and Zoltron.

The following info come via press release:


Spoke Art is proud to present SERIGRAPH – a dynamic group exhibition celebrating screen
printing and analog print making as both a medium and a process. This comprehensive
survey includes artists from a wide variety of genres, backgrounds and styles.
Each artist brings their unique experience in screen printing from their broad ranging
experience in the worlds of gig/rock posters, movie and film work, street art, fashion and
beyond. Working with single and multicolor screen prints, each artist has created a new
limited edition pushing and melding the boundary of the analog print process.
Typically working with art directors and clients for commercial and licensed projects,
SERIGRAPH allows this curated artist list a creative freedom not commonly found in their day
to day work. Allowing for an exploration of artistic practice in a completely restriction-free
space has resulted in stunning array of works within the medium.

Florian Bertmer | Bungaloo |  Burlesque Design |  Sam Wolfe Connelly |  Rhys Cooper | Craig

Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it’s hard to recall all of the details.

I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn’t actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room… but it wasn’t actually here… it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle.
