Retrospective - a year at the O
The 'O' is a small quaint gallery and retail space in Mission, specializing in the works of local artists and artisans, as well as found artifacts from times and places far away. It houses an array of trinkets, prints, devices, jewelry, bits and pieces of just about anything of any nature. A hookah lounge in the past, there is still, historically, a small smoke shop section to top it all off.
It's been a year since we started exhibiting the works of artists from around the Bay. Looking back at all the great people that came through here, we decided to show our appreciation and invite them back for a group show to celebrate our anniversary with a live set by our longest standing dj mr Rise.

Joshua King - "We wear many masks depending on our surroundings; we are chameleons in that sense. In my paintings, the figures get pushed back into space as flat color dictates their immediacy. The atmosphere is abstract and ambiguous, lending little
