Friends –

In 2016, our inaugural exhibition showed work by Tanner Cook in a glass-enclosed bulletin board. In 2017, our first video installation, Love Buzz by Ash Eliza Smith, was on view 24-hours a day on our Sony Trinitron PVM20L5 video monitor at Helmuth Projects. And in February of this year, we opened our Barrio Logan project space with new drawings and animated works by Josh Tonies. We hope you enjoyed our last exhibition, A Kind of Saturnalia by J Noland, and can join us on Saturday, October 19th at the opening reception for our next exhibition, Rosas y Nopales by Armando de la Torre. We're excited for the line-up of artists and curators we've scheduled into next summer, including: Alex Kershaw, Kristin Nason, Patrick Dunford, Brianna Rigg, and Noe Olivas.

We’re so grateful to all the artists who have trusted us with their work: Animal Charm / Lyndsay Bloom / Blair Bogin / Cudelice Brazelton / Jessica Buie / Tanner Cook / Catherine Czacki / Micki Davis / Alex DeCarli / Monica Duncan / Corey Patrick Dunlap / Adrienne Garbini / Kim Garcia / Allison Halter / Audrey Hope / Sarah Hotchkiss / Angie Jennings / Nathaniel Klein / Darrin Martin / Frankie Martin / Lilly McElroy / Charles G. Miller / J Noland / Andy Puls / Matt Rich / Brianna Rigg / Matt Savitsky / Ash Eliza Smith / Joshua Tonies / Matt Wellins / Allison Wiese / Chantal Wnuk

We'd also like to take this moment to thank you for the support you've shown Best Practice. If it weren't for this community, we wouldn't have grown from a modest bulletin board to a 500 sq. ft. gallery space. Your support has sustained Best Practice in the past, and we are asking for your help to continue our work.

This is our first attempt at fundraising. Until now, the two of us have funded Best Practice out of our own pockets. We are asking you to consider making a monthly pledge to help us continue to show diverse and challenging contemporary art in San Diego.

Your pledge would not only help us pay for rent and supplies, but would allow us to expand our ambitions to fund things like:

* honorariums for artists, writers, and curators
* travel stipends
* art work shipping costs
* framing
* purchase of A/V and other equipment

We've loved running Best Practice and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Your contributions will play a huge role in the future of Best Practice and the greater San Diego cultural community.

To donate, please follow this link:

Looking forward to more good things at Best Practice!
