I have had the pleasure of working on some great projects this summer and look forward to an artful Fall season. We just opened our Fall art exhibition at the iconic Zuni Cafe in San Francisco and will be traveling to Chicago for the Art Expo and stARTup art fairs next week. We received great press for curatorial projects around the Bay, and have refreshed and added some new projects and artists to our Portfolio and HMxAA Shop sections on the website.
Please read on for details and images.
HMxAA co-curates the biannual art program at San Francisco's iconic Zuni Cafe with fellow art consultant Britta Campbell. From now through February, 2017 you can see artworks by emerging and well established Bay Area artists in a range of media. The current exhibit features artists Nathan Oliveira, David Simpson, Leigh Wells, Elizabeth Barlow, Willard Dixon, John Warren Travis, Suhas Bhujbal, Tor Archer, Marcel Dzama, Christel Dillbohner, Jock McDonald, Carolyn Meyer, and John Nelson. Please feel free to email me with any inquiries!

Come on out and support the arts in the East Bay. You can read the article HERE.
