Christybomb's signature piece "Glitter Fags" makes a return, debuting for the first time at The Art Store Gallery for Kaizen, the first exhibition of 2017!

"The title Kaizen is Japanese meaning improvement — change for the better. It refers to any improvement, one-time or continuous, large or small. It’s an apt title for our new exhibit, new year and new works!"

Lazy Susan Gallery is pleased to present "Acid Free" – a group exhibition of new art by Christybomb, MAVA, and Sally Ko, curated by Jill Conner. The show's title references elusive and, at times, exclusionary boundaries that exist between the realms of art and craft.
Christybomb works by sourcing atypical materials and then layering the combination of craft objects, acrylic paint, and other materials stressing the relationships between shape and color. For this exhibition, she explores a monochromatic palette of white on white, black and grays along with concentric shapes comprised of pipe cleaners and yarn.

Art NXT Level Projects and GOSS183 Press are pleased to announce Reinventing Ourselves from Another Point of View. This exhibition aims to explore how we see ourselves from an external point of view. Artists are invited to examine and interpret the theme from a social, political or psychological point of view. We are looking for self-portraits that examine how you think others would see you as an outsider. This is an opportunity to reinvent yourself. From high realism to abstract expression, Reinventing Ourselves from another POV exhibition will provide an open platform for self-exploration. The exhibition is curated by Dulce Menendez and Sergio Gomez. Award jurors: Howard Tullman, John Seed and Nicki Escudero.

The German Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saint Paul will open its doors to quell the ever on-going battle of the sister arts and offer its old world charm as a peace offering. In the spirit of its communal doors, the collaborative space wants to foster dynamic and serious exchanges from diverse playing fields and knowledge wells.
