Provincetown a Smash

By Jen Stark

So! If you missed Jonathan’s show in Provincetown, here is the next best thing: a full, multimedia recap. The video and photos here are courtesy of Aaron Hobart of LocoMedia, who handles media at the moment for ArtCurrent.

The opening night was such a blast! We had a full house and everyone was so gracious and complimentary of the work. Speaking of the work, if you’re not 100% sure what Jonathan was showing, or just want to know a little bit more about the work, here’s a great, brief video of him introducing the show:

And now for the party!
Here are some of our favorite shots:

Aside from of course Jonathan’s work, the highlight of the evening was poet Olga Broumas, who gave a reading that was both deeply thoughtful and complemented the work really nicely. And thanks to the magic of technology, if you missed it you can still see it here:

On a more materialistic note, we also had some shirts printed up using one of Jonathan’s most popular images, and just like the work 30% of the proceeds of sales went to benefit Helping Our Women.

Hits Back Tees

We do have tees leftover, and we’ll be putting them up on the site for sale in the next few weeks. So definitely look for a Tweet about how to get yourself one hot tee!

Thank you again so much to Olga, Tina, Dorothy, Jay (the gallery manager) and of course Aaron, for making our two weeks at the gallery an amazing experience and a huge success!

Welcome to my new site

As my work is moving into the 21st century, so has my website. I’d like to thank the following resources for making this possible:

jQuery and jQuery Cycle instructor James Williamson
Forrest Tanaka
Corvid Works

In other words, this website is proof that “I” can’t do it, but “We” can. So here’s to us.

This News section posts directly from my WordPress blog, so you’ll see fresh updates here on a regular basis. You can see my Twitter and Facebook feed mash-up to the right there as well, and I wouldn’t be at all disappointed if you went ahead and followed me.
