Here is a brief list of past 428collective projects. For a truly "blast-from-the-past" experience of our beginnings, check out our old blog: http://studio428.blogspot.com/
428CSA. An annual year-long art subscription from the artists of 428collective. Featuring sculpture, film, artist books, performances, and photography. Each month 428collective hosts a public pick-up party, featuring the work of the current month’s CSA artist. www.428csa.com
Art Out Here Online. Acting as a foundation for the Art Out Here annual public tour, Art Out Here Online is an cultural review that explores the lives of creative visionaries and the places that nurture their work. Based in Sonoma County, the project focuses on the local cultural environment, but also offers a voice in a bigger conversation about the existence of innovative art being created outside of big cities and white walls.
Tree Portraits. A show of large-scale redwood tree stump rubbings made by local students, ages 3-9. Work was created through a three-week class hosted by 428collective. The work was hung at a local cafe, and featured an afternoon event where students made custom tree buttons for cafe patrons. Proceeds of art sales went to local environmental non-profit, Landpaths.
10 months, 10 solo shows. Studio Blomster, Guerneville, CA. Each artist in the collective took over the gallery space to create something beyond their normal creative practice.
Salon. A monthly public art salon for Sonoma County artists. One artist is invited each month to present work at the 428collective headquarters. The invited artist sets the rules, using salon-goers as tools to provide feedback on new, risky work.
Howl. A public street performance and intervention where community members were invited to fill the street for a collective howl at the moon. Produced in conjunction with 428collective’s show, “Falling Dark.”
Falling Dark. Collective multi-media show exploring the liminal twilight hour. Perdita Productions, Geyserville, CA.
