Thank You! SF Open Studios

San Francisco Open Studios was fantastic!

I flew down from Portland for a few days to participate in SFOS at Secession Art and Design. The weekend was so great and lots of paintings found new homes. One of my favorite parts of being an artist is meeting and talking with the people who like and connect with my artwork. If you didn’t get a chance to come out the artwork will be on display until Nov. 24th!

Arousing Biophilia Reception


8 months of planning and 50 hours of installation led up to the opening reception of Arousing Biophilia. This exhibit has been a labor of love and the opening reception exceeded all of my expectations. Despite the pouring rain and bad parking the place was full of wonderful people excited about the art and artist.   The exhibition will be on view until April 22nd and Art Ark Gallery will be open from 11am-3pm the following dates: March 3rd, 9th, 10th, 23rd, 24th, 30th, 31st and April 7th, 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st    For private tours on other days you can contact me directly at – shannon@shannonamidon.com
