Space 1026 official invite

This is hard.

In November, our good friend Justin Van Hoy, a Los Angeles based artist, designer, author (Milk and Honey: Contemporary Art in California, Ammo Books, 2012), curator and gallerist, passed away after a long fight with cancer.

In February of 2010, we exhibited Justin's work here at Space 1026 and it is with great sadness that exactly three years later we host a show in his memory. We have asked his friends from Philadelphia and beyond to donate a piece of artwork to show. Proceeds will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

We have received donations from Aaron Farley, Adam Wallacavage, Amanda D'Amico, Andres Guerrero, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Ben Venom, Ben Visser, Ben Woodward, Blake E. Marquis, Brent Owens, Caleb Neelon, Chris Bettig, Christopher Kline, Claire & Jeremy Weiss - Claire Weiss / Day19, Clint Woodside, Derrick McNew, Hershel Baltrotsky, James Ulmer, Jennifer Gilomen, Jeremy Shockley, Jim Houser, Joel Speasmaker, Joey Hays, John Hill, Jon Bocksel, Julia Koral, Justin Krietemeyer, Kevin Byrd, Kevin Earl Taylor, Kevin Morrisey, Leah Mackin, Matt Leines, Mike Perry, Miriam Singer, Phuong Pham, Revok, Rich McIsaac, Richard Colman, Roger Gastman, Sage Vaughn, Sarah Christoph, Steven Harrington, Thom Lessner, UPSO, Will Hays and many more.

We invite you to visit the gallery, buy art to support a great cause and join us in remembering our friend.

We will be conducting the sales through a silent auction - with bidding opportunities in person and online. YOU CAN VIEW ARTWORKS AND BID ON ITEMS HERE or e-mail us directly. We will be adding works to the website throughout this week.


Justin Van Hoy was born in Charleston, SC in the winter of 1981. He studied graphic design at Winthrop University, went on to do amazing things and touch many, many people's lives.
