I’m headed to Boulder, Colorado for a month-long yoga teacher’s intensive with the great Richard Freeman. To help fund my studies, I made a suite of mountain-themed bookmarks that are available for a donation of any amount. Get one here.

I’m planning to open my studio for an evening in late June and show the recent paintings and drawings I’ve been working on. This will be an invitation-only event, so if you’d like an invite, contact me and I’ll let you know when I’ve got the details.
My painting Call & Response will be included in Spectral Landscape (with Viewing Stations), a group exhibition at Chicago’s Gallery 400. The opening reception is Friday, April 27th from 5pm to 8pm and the exhibition runs through June 9th. From the gallery:
Exploring color as both a formal and a social force, Spectral Landscape (with Viewing Stations) arrays artworks around the gallery according to a loosely organized color spectrum. Envisioned by the artist-curators as an environment—a landscape—the project is created not only from works using spectral color, but also from instances of achromatic, invisible (infared, thermal, supernatural), and variable (metallic, iridescent) color in art. Spectral Landscape (with Viewing Stations) reveals and embodies how artists navigate the complex interactions between colors, histories, references, and sensations.
The exhibition features twenty artists who’ve all brought their diverse creative practices into the cavernous house in some way, shape, or form. I just finished installing my work this afternoon, and I must say that this has to be one of the most interesting exhibitions I’ve been involved with. I also had no idea how much my work would benefit from the multiple vantage points of a stairwell, but it works really well.
Gallery hours are Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 2 to 9 p.m. or by appointment (call 773-710-5464). The exhibition runs through April 8th.
S.H.o.P. is located at 5638 South Woodlawn Avenue in Chicago, IL.
I have a new painting on exhibition in by far the weirdest context of my career thus far. Pilsen’s Antena Project Space is holding and exhibition/event called Short Court: Tropical Aesthletics and it is, well, this:

Composite Arts Magazine just released their sixth issue, Process, and I’ve got some new writing included in it. I was asked to write about collage in relation to my paintings and drawings and I ended up producing a short, ranging text called The Endlessness of Images. There are numerous fascinating written and visual contributions to the magazine from ten other artists.
Composite Issue #6 is free to download and enjoy. Click here to go get it.
Requited is an online journal of innovative art, and they’ve included a selection of my paintings in their sixth issue. So much to read and see here, so take your time. View Requited Journal here.
The above painting, Family Room, was up for silent auction recently at an event to benefit the Hyde Park Art Center. It was not bid on, and the painting was returned to me. It feels strange to have the piece back in my possession. So I decided to auction it again, myself, via Facebook.
The auction is currently on and the initial bid is set for $50. To bid, visit the Adam Grossi Studio Facebook Page and write your bid as a comment on the wall post that reads, “Place your bid on Family Room here.” You must increase the bid by at least $10. Bidding ends at 12pm CST this Friday, December 16th.
Exactly half of the proceeds from the winning bid will be donated to the Hyde Park Art Center. The winning bidder can decide whether or not they’d like to pitch in for shipping, if applicable.
