Helmuth Projects : Peached Out

This Friday, Helmuth Projects will host the opening reception for Peached Out, celebrating the month-long artist residency featuring new work by Lindsay Preston Zappas and Hess.

Both artists have been fixtures in the San Diego art community, showing often before moving out to Michigan for grad school where they participated in the same Sculpture program at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Hess recently graduated and Lindsay will return in the fall to finish her second year. Peached Out serves as a type of homecoming for the two, a summer vacation spent in the same room in a city they used to live and work in.

As a show, Peached Out is bright and weird, exploring the Southern California aesthetic and landscape in two specific but complementary styles. Both girls gathered materials from dollar stores and home depot and created directly in the space, where their distinct methods and approaches literally rubbed elbows in Helmuth’s 500 square foot studio.

For almost a year, Helmuth Projects has proved a magnet for wandering artists and projects, hosting month long residencies and weekend exhibitions. A wide spectrum of work has been shown, with many more openings planned during this calendar year.  

The opening reception for Peached Out is this Friday, June 6th from 6-10pm. Helmuth Projects is located downtown at 920 E Street, Suite 103, San Diego, California 92101.
