Come by to check out my newest body of work at the brand new 210 AR4T Space in Laguna Beach this Saturday, June 19th, 2010 – Show goes from 6pm to 10 pm –
Hope to see you there:)
Please check out Laguna’s newest art gallery: 210 AR4t Space.
210 AR4T SPACE: A collaborative art experiment between the JLA Memorial Fund, art advocate AR4T, and artists, photographers, designers, forward thinkers, and community organizers of today who are shaping the face of tomorrow.
210 AR4T SPACE is born from the world of youth culture with a mission to peel back layers and give exposure to the contemporary fine arts that dwell within.
Hypothesis: providing a place to show new art will inspire creation and movement.
Materials: walls, lights, music, new monthly showings, artist receptions, first Thursday art walks, independent film nights, and other components yet to be discovered.
Procedure: join forces with artists, people and the existing galleries in Laguna Beach and surrounding communities in a united front for the support of ART.

MIM Multi-Media Art and Culture Gallery is proud to announce the opening of FAST COMPANY, featuring new work from artist Carl E. Smith. This show marks the second exhibition at the newly opened space in down town San Francisco.
In FAST COMPANY, Carl E. Smith collages icons and other colorful particles from contemporary visual culture and the industries it comes from. Music, fashion, technology, print; fast-moving industries where the newest-hottest obsolesces its own previous iteration–Smith moves even faster to cull, cut and capture icons and particles from trade publications and reconstitutes them into fantastic and colorful compositions. Butterflies, bubble gum, bombers, glossy lipstick; suspended symbols mash up like raw snapshots right from dreams.
