Show Runs May 20th, 2006 - June 18th, 2006

Costa Mesa, CA – May 20th, 2006 – This month Subject Matter Gallery features “Collabro”, a collection of rare collaborative art pieces created by over 68 participating artists. The “Collabro” group show aims to define a moment of the urban art movement, a movement met with evolutionary strides in ideas, composition and esthetic. In this contemporary art progression, artists are encouraged to break hard-line, uncompromising work conventions and instead progress with eachother, as evidenced in the cooperative elements of street murals. For “Collabro” the artists have joined their separate art forms on shared canvas space, providing exceptional opportunities in what can be called an “ego share.”

The “Collabro” artists have teamed up in groups of two or more to create work all captured and connected in one gallery. Collaborative art pieces will have their artists revealed at the show opening. Participating artists include Greg “Craola” Simkins, Mark Bode, Tristan Eaton, Sylvia Ji, Alex Pardee, Tim McCormick, Kevin Peterson, , Shawn Barber, Henry Lewis, Diet, Kurve, Len Croskey, Casey O’Connell, Albert Reyes, Korin Faught, Natalia Fabia and more, along with work from show curator Poor Al.

WHO:
PUMA has teamed up with Bloomindale's to present you with A Night of Art, Fashion, Culture, Sport, and Social Consciousness.
MUISICAL SELECTIONS BY: DJ JAMMIE STRONG (STONES THROW)

WHAT:
This event is to celebrate the publication of "THE AFRICAN GAME." and will feature an art gallery style Photo exhibit and excerpts from "THE AFRICAN GAME" book.

"THE AFRICAN GAME is a book that takes an indebt look at the worlds most popular sport; Soccer!
Soccer is an integral part of local cultures across the world. It is something so positive that it brings smiles to children's faces even in the worst of circumstances. In most places simply arriving at a field with a soccer ball will win you instant friendships and immediate access into a local community. Soccer teams and leagues are ubiquitous structures in even the most impoverished areas. And professional soccer players are heroes to the kids who watch them play- imagine Michael Jordan, if basketball was all anybody watched!

The Purpose of the book is to bring light to a big problem around the world.
It's not all about soccer. Grassroot Soccer's mission is to mobilize the global soccer community in the fight against HIV/AIDS. We have developed an internationally recognized HIV prevention curriculum that uses soccer players and the game itself to teach awareness about the disease, critical life skills, and prevention strategies to young people.

%100 of the proceeds of the sales of "THE AFRICAN GAME" will benefit to the Grass Root Soccer organization. http://www.grassrootsoccer.org/

This Place is Ours Now

This Place is Ours Now,Featuring new work by Jim Houser

Opening Saturday May 6, 2006, Merry Karnowsky, in sponsorship with Motorola and Swindle Magazine, is pleased to present This Place is Ours Now, an exhibition of paintings and wall installations by artist Jim Houser. This will be the artist’s first solo show at the gallery, and is the culmination of several years of focused studio work. Known for his work in diverse media—drawing, painting and installations— Houser’s exhibition will include entirely new works, along with a few site-specific large-scale wall and sculptural installations.

Jim Houser uses fragments of personal experience to capture and catalogue imagery while using the convention of the fine and decorative arts as a formal point of departure. Densely layered and vaguely topographical, his paintings suggest sequences of cosmic secrets and fragments populated by science fiction, animals, and caricatured figures. In his intricate wall installations, space itself becomes a physical container for pictorial encoded thoughts and symbols. Houser’s dynamic kaleidoscopic surfaces, which continue to unfold after prolonged viewing, map to poignant personal moments in time drawn from the artists life.

Opening Reception: May 6th, 8-11 PM
Exhibition Dates, May 6th - June 3rd 2006

Community One @ Social Trust

The Social Trust is a company found under the premise of Friendship and Community. As a company, The Social Trust is a visual agency with a firm concentration on Photography and Film. As a studio, the agency’s venue encompasses a 4,500 sq ft space located in the heart of the southside of Downtown Los Angeles. The Social Trust has also partnered with Evil Monito magazine in operating a Retail/Showroom that will carry premier apparel brands as well as books and a variety of novelty art pieces.

COMMUNITY ONE is the formal opening title to invite citizens of Los Angeles and abroad of our bold new venture. Throughout the past few months while the agency were building their space, an open invitation was made to friends and family who best represented our broad scope of people within the industry of fashion, art, and design. The portraits which were executed from The Social Trust, give an honest portrayal of the ever omnipresent fact that the global network of artisans are closer than we think.

COMMUNITY ONE is their gift to friends and family.
