Come enjoy drinks & electronic artwork on First Thursday! For April the Diode Gallery welcomes San Francisco based artist Doug McCune for his first solo show "Deviant Cartography."

Deviant Cartography presents provocative maps of burglaries, prostitution, murder, and natural disasters in forms that are simultaneously familiar and foreign. What if crime were elevation, or the geography of your city was determined by the density of sex offenders? Doug McCune’s work creates a juxtaposition between macabre subject matter and beautiful visual representation. The maps are equally pleasant and repulsive — stunning and disquieting.

More information including artwork from the show is available at

See you there!
