This is a good week to be a fan of artist Anthony Sneed. His first Bay Area solo show “Grand Illusion” opens this weekend – July 9, 2011 at Shooting Gallery in San Francisco, CA (which is located at 839 Larkin Street). The opening reception will take place from 7 – 11 pm and Anthony Sneed will be in attendance. “Grand Illusion” will run through July 30, 2011.
Proceeds of sales from this print will benefit the GLBT Center in San Francisco.
In conjunction with “Grand Illusion,” Sneed has teamed up with Paper Monster to release a limited edition print of his work. Anthony Sneed has graciously offered to donate the full portion of proceeds from print sales to San Francisco’s LGBT Community Center at the closing of the show.
The print is available online through Paper Monster, and a framed edition will be available to view in the gallery Tuesday-Saturday, 12-7 p.m. throughout the month of July.
The prints are 22.5 x 34 inches, in a closed edition of 50 and are available for $130, through Paper Monster (www.papermonster.net).
Please help support this effort by reposting this information, using the appropriate channels, to help create awareness and participation in the project.

New York! Be on the lookout for mind bending images from Anthony Sneed on the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn. I first saw these untitled ‘shadow pieces’ as part of Anthony Sneed’s “Hell For Hire” exhibit and fell instantly in love. I enjoyed watching at least 5 people try and figure out why I was staring and taking pictures of a light pole today. Thanks to Anthony Sneed for keeping the streets trippy!

Brokeback Mountain. One On One Action!
I have good news and bad news. The good news is Anthony Michael Sneed’s exhibit Hell For Hire at Artjail in New York was really awesome. The bad news is that the one night only pop-up show can be seen by appointment only for the next month. That news is actually not too horrible, but it’s cold and late as I write this and I felt like being dramatic. As you can see from these photos, Anthony Michael Sneed’s work is really diverse. On display were a series of hilarious “Game Series Paintings” which are parodies of Nintendo Game covers. All of them were very clever and funny.
A series of untitled “shadow pieces” were also on display and they definitely bend the mind.
JFK The Game. Mind Blowing Fun!
Artjail is located at 50 Eldridge Street (6th Floor) in New York. I hope you’ll make an appointment and see these really cool works with your own eyes!

Dead Letter Playground at the Leo Kesting Gallery in NYC. Now Through July 18, 2010
For those like myself who love street art, I’m here to tell you about an exhibit that is the motherlode of coolness! The Leo Kesting Gallery in New York has a new exhibit called “Dead Letter Playground – A Collection of Contemporary Street Art” and it is amazing! At the Leo Kesting Gallery, you will see works from Carolyn A’Hearn, Chris Stain, Clown Soldier, Dain, DickChicken, Doze Green, Elbowtoe, Elle, Ellis G, Faro, Gaia, Head Hoods, Imminent Disaster, Jen.Lu, Jordan Seiler, Know Hope, Laura Meyers, Lee Trice, Love Me, Matt Siren, Mister Never, Nicola Verlato, Peru Ana Ana Peru, Phil Lumbang, Shark Toof, Anthony Michael Sneed and Sweet Toof!
The names above might not sound familiar, but when you look through the exhibit, a bunch of light bulbs will go off in your head as you will have surely seen works by these artists on your travels around the city. Even better news, as far as art goes, the works in this exhibit are extremely affordable. I was so pleased to see works from Elbow Toe, Dick Chicken, Head Hoods, Gaia and Sweet Toof in an exhibit and I hope this is the beginning of a new trend because the stuff they make is fabulous! It makes you think, it makes you laugh and it’s visually appealing. What could be better? The Leo Kesting Gallery is located at 812 Washington Street (at Gansevoort) and Summer gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 11am until 7pm and Sunday 1-6pm, the gallery will be closed on Mondays until after the Labor Day weekend. The exhibit runs through July 18, 2010 – so do not miss it! For the non-New Yorkers, you can view the catalog here.
See some more coolness after the jump.
