art in riverside? who knew?

After a rambunctious show last night (see below) we packed up Bonano's Scion and took a field trip to Riverside, home of Nate Frizzell and Jeff Soto. Not for no reason, but we went to see "The Big Sad" at the Riverside Art Museum with Barry McGee and Clare Rojas.




When we got there, the RAM was closed, so we went across the street to one of my collegiate haunts - the Riverside Brewing Company. Not important to the story here, but they renamed it "Raxx" - probably one of the lease appetizing restaurant names I've heard.

Yoskay and Nate enjoyed the Hefeweizen all the same...



Two sampler platters later...



Once inside we were able to check out some of Barry's typical geometrics. Here is Scott telling people he is Mr. McGee.





You really have to love Riverside...with the only museum in the world that served root beer floats from a keg.



A little more art.



Come back later for some behind the scene studio shots from Yoskay Yamamoto and Edwin Ushiro. I picked both guys up on the way to RAM and made them show me work in progress as both gentlemen have solo shows coming up at the gallery.
