Phew.  Whatta show.

Last Friday (6.5.09), 1AM hosted the opening reception of “Into the Darkness” with DrilOne.  The custom vinyl toys were out of this world.  Over 40 artists are participating in this show representing their interpretation of “Into the Darkness”.

Besides the art pieces, the cool thing was that a lot of the artists were there kickin’ it with the common folks.  They were chillin’, drinking beer, answering questions about their art, admiring other artists’ pieces, taking lots of pix of each other, and talkin’ about whatever came up in discussions.  Big ups to DrilOne, Leecifer, Brian Colin, Gatchbert, Leonard Amaral, Phoneticontrol, Delicious Drips, Gray and Lily Black.

Come on by and check out the show at 1AM SF gallery.  The show will run through July 3rd 2009 or you can visit www.toyjunkiesf.com “Into the Darkness”.

Here are some photos capturing the evening (visit  http://tiny.cc/3osny for more pix on Flickr):
