Swung by the framers the other day with Rod, who just landed in SF, to pick up his works for the upcoming “Moleskine Project” show. Can’t begin to express how impressed we both are at the quality of each and every custom frame. Archival backings, mats, Japanese rice paper hinges, uv-resistant plexi. Top notch job from top to bottom (thanks Dave!)

Oh, and of course, many of the works are double sided and have been framed accordingly!

We will be sending out a full buyers preview for the show in just a couple days. If you would like to receive an advance look at the works, and be allowed the opportunity to purchase before the opening night, please send an email to: spokeartgallery (at) gmail (dot) com.

RSVP via our Facebook Event Page here – http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=120459558032685

In the meantime, check out more pics of the framed works after the jump!

Shannon Bonatakis engages her viewers using highly stylized and emotionally charged portraiture. Inspired by human experiences both personal and interpersonal, she lovingly interprets these universal emotions through her subjects. Often autobiographical in some capacity, her paintings give us a candid window into the deep dark caverns of the artist’s psyche. These narratives are often left open to interpretation, but emanate a deep personal significance to the creator which is not always clear, but always compelling.”

Shannon’s portrait of Margot Tenenbaum for our Wes Anderson inspired art show, Bad Dads, last October in San Francisco went to a very lucky home (you know who you are!) Can’t wait to see what she comes up with for the Quentin vs. Coen art show in April, stay tuned!
