5pm-8pm
Baxter & Cook Art Advisors: 2 Henry Adams Street, Suite 358, SF 94103

This is the press release they whipped up:

Baxter & Cook Art Advisors LLC is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of paintings by the Oakland based and nationally recognized artist Eddie Colla. Please be our guest at the opening reception on January 14th from 5-8PM

While Eddie has been actively exposing his wheatpastes and stencils for the two years throughout public spaces in the Bay Area; Eddie’s began to garner national recognition when his street art began incorporating images of Obama. Throughout the 2008 Presidential election Eddie created many variations of a total of six Obama designs including ‘Obama in New Era hat’ and ‘Forward’ which was translated in three languages. His growing popularity landed him attention on internet blogs, features in four published books, and participation in the “Manifest Hope Art Gallery” shows at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and at the Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. His designs have been transformed many times over, from stickers, album and magazine covers, and even on t-shirts notably worn by star Spike Lee during a CNN interview.

Eddie has participated in group exhibitions at San Francisco’s Space Gallery and Secession Gallery. Some of his well known public images include ‘Bike Girl,’ ‘Love Ain’t the Problem’ and ‘No More Excuses.’ He is included in the following four books, Art for Obama – (Designing Manifest Hope and the Campaign for Change) edited by Shepard Fairey & Jennifer Gross, Design for Obama by Aaron Perry-Zucker and Spike Lee with Steven Heller, Hope A collection of Obama Posters and Prints by Hall Elliot Wert, and San Francisco Street Art by Steve Rotman
