Adam Flores Brings Gallery Three To the Block

Our very own Adam Flores ushers in a new Gallery Three show in its very new location. Now joining Shooting Gallery and White Walls on the block, Gallery Three is located in the annex space above White Walls at 835 Larkin.

Adam Flores has been using this annex as his studio space for the last year. Thus his new show, “Winter Warz,” is a true journey into the sweat and blood that has gone into his new body of work. With his blue Dickies covered in paint and his bill flipped up, I peeked over Adam’s shoulder to snap some preview shots.

DRAW is a must-see art exhibition featuring original drawings by 300 artists in the tattoo, literature, design, illustration, animation, skateboard, music, urban, psychedelic and new contemporary art worlds. The show is a tribute to the often-underrated but fundamental building block of visual and graphic art: the drawing.

DRAW is the largest contemporary drawing exhibition to emerge out of New York City. The exhibit debuted in October of 2006 at NYC’s Fuse Gallery to phenomenal response from audience and press alike. It had an equally impressive showing during the SXSW 2007 Music and Interactive-Film Festival in Austin, Texas.  Most recently, the exhibit drew over 2000 people to its London debut at StolenSpace, East London’s Leading Contemporary Urban Art Gallery. DRAW is currently on a six-country world tour that includes future showings in Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Berlin.

DRAW is curated by Erik Foss and Curse Mackey with guest curators Justin Giarla, Jamie O’Shea, Tim Barber, Damien Weinkratz, Les Barany, Brendan Fowler, Mike Aho, Sto, Victoria Perez, Maria Koulioufas and D* Face.
