STEPHEN HENDEE's spooky cool rapid prototype piece. this is work from 07-08, we showed some prototype pieces in Miami last year and the year before.
Below is an image of two wall hanging quilts which are derived from an absconded news station street banner on a light-post in Mitte, Berlin Germany in 1997. They each have two levels of fluorescent hunting fleece and are partially machine and hand sewn. They are roughly 60” x 80”.

This is a shot of DANIEL DAVIDSON's ADA PICTURE BOOTH.
This piece/project first debuted at ADA in November of 2006, then went to SCOPE MIAMI 2006 and was Walter Robinson's pick of the Basel Week 2006 (art net). Daniel was inside this cardboard booth drawing away doing self portraits about 1 per 2 minutes. Crazy. People really loved this. Daniel & ada did it again in 07 at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn.
Daniel and I went to art school (SFAI) back in the early 90's.
Check out his page at adagallery.com ... if you're smart and can afford one..
We began on Broad Street in downtown Richmond in 2003, without really knowing what we were starting. We were artists trying to provide something different, a 'for profit' gallery that exhibited work normally reserved for non profit spaces.
i'm going to make this blog a place to show all the images and ideas that went into ada and over the past five and a half years. Check out the main site for current info & artists. www.adagallery.com
above is an image of new work by artist Bruce Wilhelm, new show opens at ada
on November 7 ( 7-10) 2008 with Japanese born / brooklyn resident Motomichi Nakamura
