Anndra Neen

Sisters Phoebe and Annette Stephens are the talented designers behind Anndra Neen. The level of artistry their pieces possess should come as no surprise considering their lineage: their father, Luis Stephens was a well-known painter in Mexico City, Conlon Nancarrow, their grandfather, was a progressive Mexican composer, and their grandmother, Annette Nancarrow, was in her time a jewelry designer as well, creating statement pieces for the likes of Anais Nin, Frida Kahlo, and Peggy Guggenheim to name a few.

French medieval armor, ancient Egypt,Tilda Swinton, Iris Apfel, Dario Argento films, and traditional Mexican textiles are just a few of the things (and people) that inspired their latest work, which is all painstakingly hammered out at their studio in New York.

Check out the collaboration they did recently with TenOverSix Shoes (shown above).

This past Tuesday the Tin Can Ale House hosted the opening exhibition of Tessa Cady's Lonesome Valleys. The show features several large panoramic paintings, most appearing mysterious, existing somewhere between our dreams and reality, and brimming with colorful surrealistic undertones.
The show will be up for the rest of September so be sure to check it out!

In addition to the fabulous artwork, Dood's Foods held their first eating contest as 101 KGB's Best Burger in San Diego! Congratulations again you guys!

Immediately after the eating contest, Aalti Veri (Shannon of Primitive Noyes) graced us with her cool musical stylings (not a bad way to recover from an eating contest).

The artist (far right) with friends.

"Wanna be in an eating contest?"
"Meh! Okay."

I think I've found a new hobby (see: Purple Rain).

Before the eating contest: Glen, Shoko and Paul appear in good spirits.

Shoko seems to be the only one who made it our alive.

Aalti Veri.

All in all, really great night spent with great friends.

And the first Tuesday of next month (October 2nd) we will be putting on a Halloween-themed group show, look forward to seeing you there.
