Stevie Van Zandt shares stories from his new memoir, “Unrequited Infatuations”

From the Washington Post: Acclaimed rock-and-roll guitarist, music producer, solo artist and “The Sopranos” actor, Stevie Van Zandt rose to fame touring the world with Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. In his new memoir, “Unrequited Infatuations,” Van Zandt chronicles the twists and turns of his nearly nonstop career since the mid-1960s. The musician turned activist turned actor joins Washington Post opinion columnist Jonathan Capehart to share stories from his unique life journey."

Monk Station

Monk Station
30"x30"oil on linen 2020

"Move towards the light", a friend said to me as we wandered the streets of Montreal on a crisp spring afternoon. My painting "Monk Station" is inspired by that day and depicts a saffron robed pilgrim in a 21st century urban moment. The monk is moving towards the light. Set in a subway station in Montreal, this painting looks at the place of the spirit in our fast paced lives.

Honored that "Monk Station" was curated into Los Angeles Latest Collections by Briana Salatino, Fair Assistant at The Other Art Fair:

Homage to Frida Kahlo


Gregg Chadwick
10"x10"oil on cigar box 2021
Private Collection Los Angeles

My oil on wood cigar box painting of Frida Kahlo is the latest in a series of artworks that amplifies the shared culture between Mexico and the United States. Frida was a dynamo. Her artworks explore the realms of myth, memory, and physical reality in groundbreaking ways. My latest portrait of Frida is an homage to her work and influence.

My painting imagines Frida when she lived in San Francisco. In 1930-31 Frida and Diego Rivera lived at 716 Montgomery Street in San Francisco, just down the hill from North Beach and Chinatown. Frida met and created with a group of artists who energized her creative process. KQED notes that "For six months, the couple stayed at the studio of Rivera’s old classmate and friend, sculptor Ralph Stackpole, who introduced them to an eclectic group of writers, painters and photographers." For a number of years, I lived in San Francisco at the corner of Green and Montgomery streets. I would often walk down the steep hill on Montgomery towards the Transamerica building and imagine Frida living in my neighborhood. More on Frida in San Francisco in the marvelous program and article by KQED - Inside Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's Life in San Francisco

Exhibited and sold at The Other Art Fair Los Angeles at Barker Hangar September 2021. Thank you to all my collectors and followers. I so appreciate your interest in my artwork.

Thanks to everyone who commented on and enjoyed the painting at @theotherartfair

Tax the Rich


Gregg Chadwick
12"x9"oil on panel 2021

Congressional Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez created headlines around the globe with her Tax the Rich Dress worn at the 2021 Met Gala.

The socially provocative dress was designed by Aurora James who said in the New York Times: Listen, it would be a lot easier to go to the Met Gala and just wear a really beautiful dress and look really beautiful and have a good time. But that was not her intention, right? Her intention was to take a conversation that’s largely existing in working-class communities and bring it into rooms where that conversation might be a little bit more uncomfortable. It’s not easy to show up in a room like that, with a statement like that.

There’s a lot of people who gain access to rooms like that and are too afraid to rock the boat."

My painting celebrates AOC, Aurora James, and everyone rocking the boat. Thanks to everyone who commented on and enjoyed the painting at @theotherartfair

Featuring New Paintings About Our Fragile Earth
& Humanity's Tensile Strength

I first became aware of the fragile nature of our planet as an elementary 
school student. For Christmas one year, I asked my parents for the book 
Wildlife in Danger published by the IUCN 
(International Union for the Conservation of Nature). 
They are still an important organization providing information, plans,
 and hope for our endangered earth. Worried about the environment 
as a kid, I drew pictures of animals constantly. Now I have brought out 
a series of paintings inspired by the 50th anniversary of Earth Day that 
shed light on climate change, the beauty of the natural world, and 
our place with other species. The Greatest of Wanderers will be 
on exhibit at The Other Art Fair at Barker Hangar starting on 
Thursday night, September 23, 2021.

Art at its best possess an uncanny ability to communicate ideas and feelings that we need to understand. It seems that especially in times of struggle or unrest, art helps us connect to the personhood of others especially during the current Covid epidemic. My painting Frontlines celebrates the nurses and other healthcare workers battling for all of us.

My paintings are crafted as reflecting devices that mirror and focus the viewer’s attention on where we've been, and where we are going. As Marvin Gaye sang so poignantly - “What’s going on.”. Frontlines will be on exhibit at The Other Art Fair at Barker Hangar from September 23, 2021 -September 26, 2021.
