Together Gallery Digs Wood

Remember Timothy Karpinski, Nas Chompas, and Mark Warren Jacques from The Future Is So Bright? If you weren’t around 666 Gallery last May to meet these great fellows, fret not: they shall be at White Walls this December for our Winter Group Show. In January, they are getting even more personal with a three man show booked at Gallery Three. The guys own a space of their own called Together Gallery in Portland, giving them a platform to show their own art and that of their friends.

Together Gallery’s current exhibition, Wood, features works from Erik Otto, Timothy Karpinski, Nas Chompas, Mark Warren Jacques, and more. With every image we see, this gallery and its artists are beaming stronger on our radar. Enjoy these great works from four tree hugging favorites of ours.

Words of Hope from 666

If you’re worried about the world at large, watch this video from the opening of “The Future Is So Bright” at 666 Gallery and breathe deep.

KQED covered the event with enthusiasm, and we like what they had to say:

“The space, formerly the location of Gallery Three, is a cozy oasis the size of a walk-in closet in the seedy wilds of San Francisco’s Tenderloin district . . . Feast on Alexandra Steele’s coyote decoys, Nas Chompas’ explosive fantasy world, Mark Warren Jacques’ trippy geometry, and Timothy Karpinski’s childhood bric-a-brac.” -Emmanuel Hapsis, KQED

The Morning After: 666 Opening

Ok, so it’s not exactly the morning after… but “the week after” just doesn’t have the same ring. The grand opening of 666 Gallery last Thursday was a huge success, and we were excited to receive this diary entry from the curator herself. Here are a few words from Jillian Mackintosh:
