sticks+stones gallery

Started 2012 with my 1st Solo Art Show! "Everything, from the 7 or so sketchbooks laid out on the tables for inpection, to the careful selection of the prints, and even to the grafitti added to the wall was so expressive of Joaquin that it was clear why the energy and the feeling of the night was so positive and stunning; his pressence in the space, along side his art, was exactly what gave the show the ability to leave an enormous impact on the viewers and guests. I think, perhaps, that Joaquin's show was a fantastic example of the way art can affect us, as a community, in a completely beautiful and cohesive mannor and if we all try to live our lives a little more naked (so to speak), we can create an environment filled with encouragement and understanding."- ReneK 2/03/12

" Joaquin, did not hold back in the presentation of his innermost self in any way; everything, down to the bare bones of his sketches, was there and tanglible for viewers."
"As soon as 5 o'clock hit, the atmospheric change was one that was completely noticable; instead of there being that awkward hour while guests arrive and quietly wait around for the party energy to begin and that innevitable odd zone that usually exists while the gallery is in-between partially empty and full, the vibe was electric."
