Riverside California Opening

Just outside of Los Angeles, the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta opens at Pain Sugar Gallery in Riverside, California, from 6 - 10 PM.

This is part of the First Thursday Riverside Artwalk.

We are showing in the Pain Sugar Gallery in Riverside because Pavel Acevedo arranged this exhibition for us.  Pavel is in the Desert Triangle collection, and we are very proud to have him.

The 3 "augmented reality" prints were a hit.  Most of the visitors were able to download the Augment El Paso app on their phones, and use it themselves.  I was impressed.  We also used our tablets to show off the augmented reality prints, all of which were animated  by Augment El Paso.

The morning started off great.  Cheech Marin had a press conference to announce that he met his first fund raising goal, for the Cheech Marin Museum of Chicano Art, to be located in Riverside, California.

Hopefully this will reach Cheech Marin,
and he can accept the print if he wants it

Thank you very much, Fritz Comandante Aragon and Laura Media, of the Urge Palette Art Store next door, for allowing us to show in their gallery.  They did a lot of work to prepare and hang the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta, and we are very grateful to them.

Update (June 27, 2018):  We got a nice mention on Instagram from a curator:
