Counting the Days

For your holiday shopping –
at Electric Works we are counting the days with special items from our store, including such collectibles as the Ian Huebert literary map and the
Part of a Complete Breakfast print by Jason Jägel.

Just around the corner from the store our gallery is featuring Stella Luminosa. Stop by and meet Stella and the Luminosa family: Dave Eggers, Matt Furie, Ian Huebert, Jason Jägel, Keegan McHargue, Clare Rojas, and Gina Tuzzi.

We give thanks!

Electric Works will be closed on Thursday. It’s our special day to give thanks…not just for the obvious, like food, but for the multitude of blessings that we have received this year.

On the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, the gallery will be open by appointment. Please call 415 225 6624 and we’ll be happy to greet you at the gallery.

Please stay tuned for a set of holiday-only releases from Electric Works, including releases by Dave Eggers and Jason Jägel. And don’t forget about our December Group Show, “Stella Luminosa.” Exhibiting artists include: Dave Eggers, Matt Furie, Ian Huebert, Jason Jägel, Keegan McHargue, Clare Rojas, and Gina Tuzzi. The exhibition opens Friday, December 3, 6-8 PM.

And for more fun, please join us for a holiday release party for the Believer Magazine Art Issue on Thursday, December 9, 7:30- 9:30 PM.

Happy Holidays.

Electric Works presents
Stella Luminosa
December 3 – December 24, 2010
Artist Reception: Friday, December 3, 6-8 PM

Electric Works is pleased to put some sparkle in the season with Stella Luminosa, a group show featuring Dave Eggers, Matt Furie, Ian Huebert, Jason Jägel, Keegan McHargue, Clare Rojas, and Gina Tuzzi. For the month of December the gallery will be populated by characters and landscapes that are both strangely familiar and familiarly strange. The works are distinguished by graphic mark making that evoke at once a childlike enhancement along with adult intrigue and sophistication. Gallery artist Jason Jägel will be taking over the Project Space filling it with an exuberant installation of recent paintings.
