I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.

September 4 - 26, 2020
While our biennial 50 To Watch may have been derailed by the impact of COVID-19, The Studio Door has pivoted once again to continue its support of regional artists.
For the month of September, we will bring in two works from 25 artists showcasing the diversity of style, mediums and ideas.
Participating artists:Teresa Austin, Jay Bell, Maurice Cassidy, Lance Chang, Christopher Conroe, Victoria Cracknell, Helena Faitelson, Chitra Gopalakrishnan, Kara Greenwell, Janet Hansen, Sonny Lipps, Maebil Manon, Rafael Fallo Mareyna, Dave Ness, Eric Newnam, Danne Sadler, Jon Savage, Rich Scheaffer, Christina Schulz, Rich Stewart, Theresa Vandenberg Donche, GE Vogt, Tim Weedlun and Larry Wolf.
We welcome you to join us during gallery hours. With most people working remotely or still sheltering at home, you’ll most likely find the gallery to yourself. Naturally, we asked that you wear a mask and respect social distancing.
If you feel so bold as to take a day trip to Hillcrest, you’ll find that the retail and vintage stores in the neighborhood are open for business. Most of the restaurants and bars have spilled into the streets and parking lots so you can even have a moment that almost feels like ‘old times.’
Studio spaces are availablefor mid-career or professional artists seeking a regular studio practice. Ideally, artists should have a strong interest in patron sales, collaborative exhibition with other studio artists and sharing creative industry resources.
Last October, San Diego's arts community lost artist Ally Benbrook, who passed away from metastatic lung cancer. The Studio Door continues her legacy with original watercolors. These unframed, matted watercolors are on sale with a proceeds benefiting her family and the gallery.
We hope you will make an effort to stop in and purchase one of these fine watercolors. Each work has a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Ally. All serious offers will be considered.
