'Lived In' a collaborative pop-up show opening March 31st 5-9pm at Anderson Art Collective

I will be showing recent work with my wonderful and talented girlfriend Kimie Rosenthal (theoctoberunion) at our upcoming pop-up show titled 'Lived In' at the Anderson Art Collective. Please come and enjoy! Press release and info below...

Santa Barbara (CA)- 

Anderson ART Collective ( presents “Lived-In”, a new concept pop-up show presenting a collection of new work by artist/designer couple Sean Anderson and Kimie Rosenthal.  The opening kicks off on Saturday March 31st from 5pm – 9pm where there will be an opportunity to meet both artists, explore their space and enjoy an evening of live music and drinks.

Creating a livable environment to view the work, the show will be a departure from a ‘white cube’ gallery setting converting the Anderson Art Collective into a warm lived-in boutique-like space.  The artists will be “living” in the gallery through Sunday April 15th during gallery hours, Friday through Sunday from noon to 5:00pm.

According to the couple, “We want to create a space that reflects our aesthetics, both artistically and practically and encourage gallery goers to come and experience a day in the life of what we do and how we do it.”

Sean Anderson’s ( paintings speak to the importance and  beauty in the basics of everyday life, depicting simple structures and natural environments painted with a vibrant palette borrowed from modern commercialism. Anderson’s paintings and sculpture have been exhibited at the Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard as well as Sullivan Goss Gallery, Santa Barbara. A solo exhibition of his work can also be seen at Firehouse30 Gallery in Walla Walla, Washington in May of this year.

Designer, Kimie Rosenthal, owner/creator and stylist of The October Union ( promotes recycle-conscious fashion with an emphasis on unique style that is inherent in everyone. Believing that everyone should all have an awareness for what they wear. 
The October Union, in addition to vintage and pre-loved clothing, also produces 100% natural handmade perfumes, bath and beauty products through their line 'Alkimie’. A select collection of new and vintage clothing in addition to jewelry and an array of ‘Alkimie’ products will be available at the show.

Anderson ART Collective is located at 410 Palm Avenue, Unit A2, in Carpinteria.  The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon until 5pm or by appointment. The gallery features contemporary artwork and is a platform to promote the arts, to protect the environment and to support human rights. For more information please visit or call 805.684.8783.
