“Starting from Scratch” New Art by Matt Beard – March 18-25

NEW Misfit HQ!
565 Pearl St.
La Jolla, 92037

25 paintings from start to finish in the gallery in one week? We look forward to seeing how this goes.When Matt Beard told us what he wanted to do we thought two things: he’s bonkers, and he’s even more  bonkers than we thought… but were game to let me take a swing at it in our brand new gallery/headquarters in La Jolla, CA.

During one frantic week in the new gallery he will be painting ten 30″ x 30″, five 20″ x 20″, and ten 10″ x 10″ original paintings. There will be tacos, donuts, beers, drums, friends, enemies, skateboards, and possibly even parakeets.**  Stop in during the course of the week to check out the work in progress, or just wait to see them all finished at the opening reception on March 25 …times and more details coming real soon.
