It’s not often that San Diego artists get written about for publications or blogs that reach outside of the county. Other than CityBeat, who seems to be the most consistent, local coverage for art in San Diego is rather pitiful. That’s why I was pleased that Robert Pincus decided to make Tom Driscoll the subject of his maiden piece for Artbound. It’s fantastic that Artbound/KCET is making an effort to cover all of southern California, not just LA. We’re small, but there are some interesting things happening down here in SD.
Speaking of interesting art…
Closing reception is this Saturday, May 2nd, from 6-9pm. See you there.
There are 2 shows this weekend involving 3 people related to the ICE Gallery family.
The first is the 2014 San Diego Art Prize Recipients at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library including Joseph Huppert and Philipp Scholz Rittermann.
The second is at the Harmony Murphy Gallery in downtown Los Angeles including Joseph Huppert and Thomas DeMello
Ever since I saw the way Tom had his concrete cones displayed in his garage I’ve been itching to see them in a proper exhibition. Cut to 3 years later and the time has come to show just about every last one that he has. Some date back 20 years, however most have never been shown. The 16 foot tall walls in the gallery will be well utilized.
Please join Tom and I on Saturday, March 21st, 6-9pm.
This Friday, February 27th, from 6-9pm is your last chance to see the site conditional photo installation by Philipp Scholz Rittermann. Seeing this piece in person is truly a unique experience. It would be a shame if you didn’t get to see it before it’s gone forever.
It’s great to be in a position to facilitate the opportunity for an artist I respect to exhibit work they wouldn’t normally make. I’ve know for many years now that Philipp Scholz Rittermann is an exceptional photographer with an impeccable eye for detail. As would be expected, being a photographer, Philipp is used to making flat work. However, I had a feeling that he was itching to take his work off the wall and into a more three dimensional realm. I had no idea what to expect when I asked him to take a shot at making a site specific piece for ICE Gallery, but I trusted that he could come up with something interesting.
Please join us Friday January 9th from 6-9pm and participate in an immersive site conditional photographic installation.
An art exhibition featuring objects, both natural and manufactured, unaltered by the artist. Three pieces per artist displayed as-is with the aim of communicating to the audience the intrinsic beauty that can be found in seemingly mundane or usually overlooked objects.

Edith Baumann has been making paintings in Los Angeles for over 30 years. However, this time around she’s created an elegant site specific installation that perfectly capitalizes on the unique character of the space.
We’d love to see you on Friday, 10/3, from 6pm-9pm.
Taking full advantage of the 16′ tall walls at ICE, Christina has created a fantastic site specific wall drawing.
We’d love to see you Saturday evening, 8/23, from 5pm – 9pm.
