Press Statement

Distinction Gallery and ArtHatch present innovative artworks by remarkably talented artists to the Southern California region, with a compelling new show featuring the art of Shay Davis entitled "Shay's Inferno: The Sins and Virtues of Modern Man". This accomplished San Diegan artist uses his imagination, playfulness, and his own internal challenges to provide powerful emotional responses to a world of real and fantasy stimuli. Winning numerous awards including the Gold Medal at the New York Art Show in 1992, his original works grace the homes of well-know personalities such as Tony Hawk, Halle Berry, Jayne Seymour and Greg Allman. Coinciding with the show is the premier screening of Shay Vision, a new film documenting Shay Davis, his art, inspiration, and process, at Birch North Park Theatre. Distinction's opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 9, 2011 from 6-10pm with Live Music by Paul Cannon, complimentary Stone Brewery Beer and Wiens Family Cellars Wine for guests 21 years of age or older. Attend the Premier of Shay Vision, April 8, 2011 at Birch North Park Theater.
