Attention: SDCCers - Check Out ArtExpo SD, Curated by Mark Murphy! July 24th to the 26th.


I'd like to send out an invite to all my friends who are attending 

Comic-Con or are in the San Diego area to experience ArtExpo SD. 



I am honored to announce that tonight, Thursday, July 24th 2014, my new video artwork titled CWTV: Double Feature will premiere before a talk with Pasadena illustrator Mark Todd at the ArtExpo SD. 



Kicking off at 5:30, SDX (formerly the San Diego Ad Club), presents a mini ArtExpo showcase premiering the new film short by Houston fine artist JooYoung Choi and SuperHero inspired talk by Pasadena fine artist Mark Todd (above).
This event was created by the students of the Media Design School of Digital Arts at the New School of Architecture and Design. 

Accomplished graphic designer, curator and artist Mark Murphy has organized a two floor show that brings together an eclectic exhibition of work by fine/commercial artists, and D.I.Y. creatives. 

Mark is passionate about visual art, and he has dedicated his time an energy to bring artists together, through both his book design firm Murphy Design, as well as his exhibitions.

Although I am still here in Houston, from what I have read, and Mark has shared with me, I feel that the show has been curated in a manner similar to a well executed painting: it is thoughtful, playful, creative and visually rewarding. 


The show consists of works from  over 150 artists, among them will be pieces from artists such as Esther Pearl Watson, Mark Todd, Cathie Bleck, Bonnie Marie Smith, Richard Downs, Irene Hardwicke Olivieri, Kevin Paulsen, The Juggling Klines, Marco Zamora, Elizabeth Winnel,Tim Mantoani, Marc Burckhardt, Brendan Danielsson, P-Jay Fidler, John Purlia, Sean Brannan and myself, JooYoung Choi.

About
The Big Show is Lawndale Art Center's annual open-call, juried exhibition. It has been an important venue through which emerging and under-represented Houston area artists gain exposure since the show's conception in 1984. The Big Show was formerly the East End Show, sponsored by the East End Progress Association, at Lawndale's original location.
Each year Lawndale Art Center invites a guest juror to select from work submitted by artists living within 100 miles of Houston. Artists are invited to bring up to three works of art, not previously shown in Houston, to Lawndale Art Center where the work is juried on-site for a chance to be included in the show and a shot at $3,000 in cash awards.
For this year's exhibition, a total of 115 works by 106 artists were selected by juror Erin Elder, Visual Arts Director, Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe, for the exhibition from 981 works submitted by 382 artists. Artists selected for the exhibition include:

H-Town Art Announcement! Scott Rosenberg's Snail Trail @ Zoya Tommy Contemporary Gallery

RECENTLY, I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING SCOTT ROSENBERG, HE AND HIS WORK ARE BOTH CREATIVE AND THOUGHTFUL. IF YOU ARE IN HOUSTON ON FRIDAY JULY 11TH, GO VISIT HIS SHOW SNAIL TRAIL AT ZOYA TOMMY CONTEMPORARY GALLERY. 
CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE.
Zoya Tommy Contemporary Gallery and ArtHouston are pleased to announce Snail Trail, a solo exhibition introducing emerging Houston artist Scott Rosenberg. The opening reception will be Friday, July 11th, from 6:00 – 8:30 pm and the show will run through Saturday, August 9th. 

Scott Rosenberg’s ceramic and mixed-media sculptures border on the fantastic. While deceptively crude and sometimes messy, he sculpts with purpose and sophistication, creating works that are enigmatically fun and playful but with hints of a lurking moodiness underneath.

With Snail Trail Rosenberg presents aspects of your average middle class garden intermixed with ancient pottery designs and seemingly banal everyday found objects mingled together, suggesting greater concepts such as male and female, life and death. Rosenberg rarely overthinks his work, however, creating pieces that lack pretention and avoid complex metaphors.

Scott Rosenberg was born in Milwaukee Wisconsin. He earned his BFA in ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2005 and his MFA from University of South Florida in 2012. Scott went on to participate in several residencies-one at Southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas, and a second in rural Napa Valley at Richard Carter Studios. Having traveled and studied abroad, he gathered experience and inspiration in New Zealand, Poland, and the Czech Republic.

Having exhibited in NY, CA with the Tompkins Project, as well as in TX and across the US, Rosenberg now currently lives and works in Houston, TX where he continues to make ceramic and mixed-media sculpture. This will be his first solo show with Zoya Tommy Contemporary.

ArtHouston is an annual summer event promoting Fine Art Galleries in Houston, TX. A day-long event, it will be the busiest day of the year with many galleries holding evening receptions. A wide range of work will be on display, from realist to abstract paintings, sculpture, mixed-media constructions, drawings and works on paper, collage, and photography. The featured artists are both emerging regional talents and established artists from around the world.

For further information please contact Zoya Tommy Contemporary Gallery at 713-523-7424 or by email at info@zoyatommy.com. The gallery is located at 4411 Montrose, Suite F, Houston, TX 77006
