The Urfspace™ Art and Music Show

Saturday September 9th 2023 — 5 to 9 pm
Michelle Thomas Fine Art Gallery, 40, 29th Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

An art show of original watercolor artworks from Urfspace Beyond: Into the Radlands, the latest book by San Francisco-based artist and author, Chuck Whelon, successfully funded on Kickstarter in August 2023. Chuck signed copies of the book, a colorful cartoon tour of the future, including stories, poems and cosmic space persons. Two other new titles from Planet Urf Entertainment were also released: The Future Sounds of Urfspace CD, a soundtrack album of 19 original tunes from current Bay Area bands, and “The Star and the Space Princess” a book of sci-fi short stories by author, Robert L. McCarthy, who was also in attendance.

The event featured live musical performances by Charm World, Matt Holdaway’s Army, Amy Carr, and Astrokitty & the Urfspace 5! Music co-ordinated and MC’d by Chris Porro. See the Livestream broadcast hosted and broadcast by Amber Greenlee on the Planet Urf YouTube Channel.

The gallery was open daily for viewings, from Labor Day, Monday September 4th, thru Saturday 9/9/2023.

Thanks so much to everyone who showed up, watched the Livestream, supported the Kickstarter, dropped in during the week, helped my organize, or performed at the event! You all were so amazing and I couldn’t have done it without you! Here are some memories of the time:
