mearIf you’re in SF, you won’t want to miss MEAR ONE’s largest show to date.  Opening Saturday, July 11th at White Walls Gallery 886 Geary St in SF from 7pm-11pm.

“Suppression and Oppression have left us disconnected from each other, ourselves, and the universe, from ancient wisdom, knowledge and understanding of all that was, is and could be. Yet despite what lies secret behind our vaults, I can’t escape the fact that we are all these subjects, they belong to all of us. For what has endured the whole of history is the idea of spirit linking us to a universal connection of a higher dimension, and our liberation exists somewhere within this context; the conscious solid world is but temporal in our eyes, castles made of sand await the hands of consciousness to reinterpret its matter.” – MEAR ONE

The new video from Kendrick Lamar for “Alright” was filmed in the Bay with lots of local details.  The perfect narrative for this song.

“I remember you was conflicted, misusing your influence. Sometimes I did the same. Abusing my power–full of resentment, resentment that turned into a deep depression…”

DJ Neil Armstrong found out his dog, Poh,  was terminally ill.  When he embarked on his #dinnerandamixtape road trip, Poh was in tow.  They visited 35 cities stretching across the US (they had to return home when Poh started not to feel so well)

You can find Poh on Instagram @pohthedogsbigadventure

Wishing him many more good days…

The artistic community has banded together to participate in Manifest: Justice.  They are gearing up for several days of events in Los Angeles.   Their mission is to illuminate our resilience and to take back our streets, our schools, our communities and our hope.   This is so timely in light of everything that is currently happening in Baltimore (and beyond).

The space will be open May 2-10, 2015 M-F 6-10 at 3741 S La Brea Ave, Los Angeles CA  90016.

They have just chosen the winners of their online art contest which are pictured here.
