Friday night, 17 January 2014, Troy Holden’s “Neighbors” opened at the Lower Branch Gallery on Eddy Street. If you’re looking for sentimental or sensationalist images, go somewhere else. Shot entirely in the central city area, the large-format color prints in “Neighbors” are compassionate, unflinching portraits of people in their personal environments. Given that the central city is the neighborhood people love to hate, this show is bound to be an eye-opener for many, revealing directly and undeniably just how much each of us has in common. Do yourself a favor and see this show at 233 Eddy before it closes.

2 Blocks of Art


Friday, October 14
4–8 p.m.
Various Locations on Sixth Street between Market and Howard

Urban Solutions’ 2 Blocks of Art takes place on Sixth Street between Market and Howard. The art walk showcases a neighborhood rich in culture and well known for its cutting edge arts community. The event draws a record number of people to the Sixth Street corridor; features, like musicians playing in a Laundromat and a fashion designer exhibiting in an optometry office, make this event truly unique!

2 Blocks of Art is book-ended by well-known Luggage Store gallery at one end, and 1st Amendment gallery (1AM) at the other. Approximately 50 artists exhibit in 25 locations – all within 2 blocks!

Artists will be featured in galleries, retail shops, restaurants, theaters and event spaces along the first two blocks of Sixth Street. The art walk is FREE and no purchase is required for viewing the shows! The restaurants, bars, nightclubs and theaters along Sixth Street will offer discounted food, drinks and admission prices to after-party events for art walk participants.

I’ll be exhibiting some of my photography—all of it for sale—at the offices of Dr. Jack Sinow, Optometrist (who incidentally is my own optometrist), 71 Sixth Street, next to the Sonoma Market. I hope to see you there!
