Closing Reception July 1, 8-11pm
For the month of June, Bay Area artists Facundo Argañaraz and André Eamiello transform Queens Nails Projects into an evolving studio-style environment. During their residence, both artists will utilize the gallery as workspace and conduct a series of open studios in which audiences are invited to participate on artworks that will be displayed at the exhibition's closing reception. The project aims to break traditional boundaries between studio and exhibition practice while allowing direct access to the artist's investigations.
André Eamiello works on Fantasy Camp, an open exchange of ideas exploring physical anthropology, workshops based in thermodynamic variations and personal narrative. Resulting in the creation of spontaneous outcomes that may take the form of performances, sculptures, works on paper or video. The artist is taking appointments for story and film events on Thursdays, arts and science on Fridays and therapy and nature on Sundays. Eamiello attended the San Francisco Art Institute and received a BFA from Painting and New Genres programs in 2006, his work is influenced by landscape architecture, biology and anthropology. His site-specific installations, drawings and sculptures have been exhibited in Bay Area venues such Baer Ridgway, Southern Exposure, Intersection for the Arts and Queens Nails Annex, this is his first solo show.

Facundo Argañaraz focuses on a new work, titled Good Taste, which will result in a limited edition book in a similar format of a 7" vinyl record. The evolution of the work will be determined by his own source materials, combined with collaborative pieces made with gallery visitors. Facundo Argañaraz was born in Buenos Aires Argentina in 1975. He studied illustration and painting since a very young age and later earned a degree in Law and Political Science from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. After traveling worldwide for more than two and a half years without pause, he moved to California to pursue a career as a painter and visual artist. His work has been shown locally and internationally including a solo show at Queens Nails Project in early 2011.
