Just in case you’ve had your eyes squeezed shut over the past couple of years, you may have missed the building movement in the Art World (capitalized here because art is important!) of artist collectives — a mechanism for like-minded artists to join forces to advance, grow, and promote their work. There are all kinds of collectives: painters, muralists, sculptors, those focused on the human form, seagull wings, macro photographs of disgusting insects… pretty much anything you can imagine! Some are local, some regional, and others open their membership to artists spanning the globe as they ink, paint, draw, or pixelize away to realize the unique visions that defines their individual art.
Well, isn’t it about time I join a collective? Sure! Why not?!?!
And, so, I’m very happy to share the news that I’ve join the Dream Machine Artist Collective! The DMAC is the brainchild of artist Linda Halsey who has been hard at work recruiting artists and building the social media presence of the group. The initial lineup of participating members is very impressive, focusing initially on a small group of local San Diego artists whose work — if you’ve been to practically any large group show in the area — should immediately be recognizable:

As I said, the collective is juuuuust getting started, so expect lots more information about shared endeavors in the weeks to come. In the meantime, you can explore our website and learn a little more about each of the participating artists. But wait! There’s more!! You can also follow all of our activities — art! shows! announcements! — on:
We’re all very excited to pool our collective energies and ideas. Keep an eye on us… you are bound to be visually pleased!
