I am extremely excited to announce that my first solo show, Distopian Monuments of the Limbic Playground, has opened for in-person viewing at Gallery 825.
Despite its playful mien, we discover that all is not well in the Playground. All of the sculptures can be touched and played with, just be careful...the edges may be sharp.

Game of Shrooms
Located all over the World!
Join me and a bunch of artists in this annual world-wide treasure hunt for mushroom themed artworks. Artists from all disciplines will be placing their art in public places for people to find and keep...it's like an Easter egg hunt for adults! I have created a box of stamped note cards which will be hidden at Ernest E. Debs Regional Park in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA on Saturday morning the 15th by 8:30 a.m.
I will provide location clues within the park itself via my Instagram page on Friday @sandyhuseartist or follow links below:

The Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA) has organized an online gallery show called Petite Works (nothing over 12"x 12") featuring some wonderful work available for sale in a safe & distanced format.
My sculpture The Kracken was one of the pieces selected. Please visit the gallery to check out all the wonderful pieces & if something catches your eye, help a starving artist with a purchase. This is our new "normal", but where else can you browse highly professional art while sitting in your underwear? Enjoy!
Call and Response: Collaboration at a Distance, Round 2
This collaborative effort is the result of Shoebox PR in Los Angeles connecting artists during this time of disaster. Sixty artists were paired, and back and forth over the course of 2 weeks created a work a day. I was partnered with contemporary videographer Ibuki Kuramochi who made this collaboration a true challenge and a pleasure.
The hundreds of works created in such a short time truly demonstrate that creation and collaboration are important and vibrant even when we can't be together.

I'm delighted to be included in Avenue 50 Studio's annual fundraiser which will hang in the Annex. Each year, over 50 artists are invited to work within the constraints of a piece of 8"x 8" wood in order to benefit this extraordinary local gallery. All of the participants bring their own flavor to working within these boundaries.
My piece "Event Horizon" is designed as an interactive wall-hanging automaton that invites the viewer to touch and enjoy. Please join us on Saturday, December 14 for an opening reception that will also feature shows opening in the main gallery and in the Blue Wall annex, or visit any time during gallery hours until January 18.
