With the smoke now cleared - though the buzz still remains - PangeaSeed would like to share some of the "Hype and Cheers" floating around the interweb regarding our little ol' shark saving art exhibition Sink or Swim ~ San Francisco.


[...] Before the show even opened, over 100 fans lined up (some as early as 6 in the morning) down the block in order to buy the Scorch I print from Josh Keyes. The show also included prints and original artwork Dan May, Dave Kinsey, Ingri Haraldsen, Jen Lobo, Jessica Ward, Kevin Earl Taylor, Mike Stilkey, Paul Chatem, Roland Tamayo and more and only ran until Sunday, but you can still keep an eye out on the PangeaSeed website for additional print releases, or contact Spoke Art for artwork inquiries. All proceeds from this exhibition goes to help save the sharks.Wilson, Rhys Cooper and Tapecat. A line of over 100 people stretched down the block as people waited to get their hands on a coveted Josh Keyes' print. 'Sink or Swim' ends its weekend run later this evening, Sunday September 25th, with a closing party, non San Franciscans will get their chance to purchase the remaining original works, and prints, in the weeks to come via PangeaSeed.

[...] Shark finning involves fishermen hooking a shark while the fish is in the water and then loading it onto the boat. Once on the boat, the shark is restrained while its fins are sliced off one by one. Still alive, but limbless, the shark is thrown back into the water. What follows is a slow and likely agonizing death for the shark. The fish will either starve, drown, or be slowly eaten by other fish.

PangeaSeed is using all its resources to smoke this bastard out of its hole and force it into the global spotlight. This past Friday, September 23rd the organization partnered with Hi-Fructose web editor Ken Harman's "Spoke Art" gallery in San Francisco and debuted their first U.S. art exhibit. The show exhibits a variety of art created by an eclectic group of artists: Dave Kinsey, Josh Keyes, Jeff Soto, Jim Phillips, Rhys Cooper, Brad Klausen, Natsuki Wakita, Shark Toof, Akinori Oishi, Mike Stilkey, Rah Akaishi, Faunagraphic, Tim McDonagh, Clint Wilson, Mario Wagner, John Fellows, Spencer Keeton Cunningham, Matt Dye, Yoh Nagao, Wrecks/Nao Harada, Cupco, Paul Chatem, Skount, Koji Harmon, Jessica Ward, Michael Glinski-Gale Hart, Skinner, Claudio Ethos, Alison Sommers, Nathan Spoor, Dan May, Roland Tamayo, Ingri Haraldsen, Jen Lobo, John Malloy, Josh Hart, Kaitlin Beckett, Ben Wilson, Serge Gay Jr., Tapecat and Kevin Earl Taylor.
