Mural at the Treasure Island Music Fest!

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of working with people from all over the world (From Australia and Virginia to Fresno) to create a large interactive mural at the Treasure Island Music Festival.  I was there with Allison Snopek from ArtSpan .  Thank you Noisepop and Artspan for making it all happen.  Thanks to Blick Art for donating supplies.  Special thanks to the hard working volunteers.  Thanks to Paige and Risa (sorry if I misspelled your names) for working really hard all day, as well.  

We started around noon and didn’t get done till after sundown.  Over 350 people participated in out art adventure to recreate 2 of my paintings.   Thank you to all the artists!  You all did a wonderful job.  Take care.

Open Studios Guides!

 

We are just about 2 weeks away from the start of SF Open Studios.  This is the nation’s longest running and largest Open Studios program.  Each year artists invite all of you into their studios and work spaces to see their latest works and give you a taste of their process and environs.  One of the nice thing about Open Studios is that you get to get up close to the artist and really get their full attention.  I always enjoy seeing their work spaces and studios.  It is a completely free event.  So get the guide (at Blick and many other art outlets like galleries and coffee shops) and figure out which artists you are going to track down.  As many people know, my painting ‘Young Family Walking Through It All’ is on the cover of the guide!  I am honored and excited to be a part of Open Studios this year.  Take care.

Getting things ready for Open Studios.  October 25th and 26th.  Be here or miss out…

 

 

ArtSpan Posters are going up! Contest Kick Off!

OpenStudios@TBay3_9-3-14  OpenStudios@TBay_9-3-14

They are going up!  ArtSpan – The organization that makes Open Studios happen in San Francisco every Fall, picked my painting ‘Young Family Walking Through It All’ to be the cover of the SF Open Studios Guide Book as well as their Open Studios promotional materials this year.  A few weeks ago I was informed that  this meant that my painting would be featured on transit kiosks, bus ads, bus stop posters, and muni train ads!  I am thrilled and honored to be part of that.  I hope that it helps get people excited about meeting artists and checking out Open Studios for the first time.  And to keep the buzz going I have an idea….

1. If you see one of the SF Open Studios ads around town….take a selfie in front of the poster.

2. Tag your selfie on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag of #coffyartspan

3. Once you have done steps 1 and 2 stop by my Open Studio on October 25th and 26th and receive 5% off your purchases and a special gift for participating.

4. You can also post the pic to my facebook page or send me an email at josh@undersong.com.

I can’t wait to see all your shining faces in front of these cool ads.  Thanks for playing along.  Take care.
