Explosively Fun Art Show this Saturday

Related topics: , , , , , ,

Looking for the best of Second Saturday? The coolest party will be at The Urban Hive, 1931 H Street, from 6 to 9 pm, where the talented, outrageous and funny artist Jose Di Gregorio will be joined by musician and visual artist Neil Haydon playing acoustic folk songs.

Di Gregorio, born in Puerto Rico and raised in California, graduated from Herron School of Art and Design in 2006 and currently serves on the Board of Directors at Verge Center for the Arts, where he is also an artist in residence. If you’re familiar with Verge, it’s a local hub for the area’s most talented contemporary artists. Di Gregorio’s residency there, in addition to his outstanding artworks, speaks volumes about his credibility as an artist. His exhibit Saturday will feature 15 mid- to large-scale drip paintings on wood and paper.

Plus, it’s going to be fun. Di Gregorio is not only a painter; he’s also a performance artist. Known for over-the-top karaoke performances and doing cannon balls into pools at fancy affairs where everyone else is dressed in suits (I know; I was there), Di Gregorio entertains. The magnitude of his creativity explodes onto his paintings and into his everyday life with joyful fervor.

Don’t miss the excitement!

About GreenBeet

Nonprofit fundraiser by day; book-reading fiend by night; plant-hugging backyard farmer early in the morning: this is GreenBeet. I still play with crayons because I love colors. Green, like the planet, is my favorite. Art makes me smile. I get giddy with glee over seed catalogs. Attempts at reducing my environmental footprint offer adventure in my world. I can only afford to own it if I find it at the local thrift store, and by golly, I love a good thrift store. Sacramento, get ready to green it up GreenBeet style! Let the fun begin!
