These ceramic sculptures by San Francisco-based artist Erika Sanada strike an interesting balance between creepy and cute. There’s a real tension in these works that the artist says is a struggle between joy and sorrow. More images below.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: January

january-submissions-600

This is an OPEN CALL for you art and photography! I discovered so many amazing artists this past year in our monthly reader submissions posts. Just a reminder that this is not only a chance to share your work but to compliment and build up others in this community – they’re all your peers!

Not everything submitted will be featured, but keep in mind these posts often get well over 1,000 comments so you can imagine the amount of people who will see your work here. You have the ability to vote up work you see in here, it does help me to see the kind of work that the readers are really feeling.

Excited to see what you all share this month and all this year!

 

Submission Guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

My buddy Zach, over at Supersonic, has put together another historic show! The 5th Annual Supersonic Invitational opens at Spoke Art Gallery on Saturday, January 9th in San Francisco, California, and features brand new work from over 70 artists.

On opening night a limited number of special edition prints will be offered to first arrivals so I’m sure there’ll be a big line. Doors open at 6PM, you can check out the Facebook RSVP here.
