1. The Open Pass: Subaru Presents a RANGE Group Show

    Hands down, the RANGE community is one of the coolest, most creative networks out there. We are consistently blown away by our talented friends and family: the painters and photographers, the sculptors, the metal manipulators and more. When we started publishing RANGE Magazine a few years ago, we knew our medium would always be evolving, and we definitely wanted to take our ideas off the page and into real life. Typically, when we come up with a kooky idea, it ends up stashed away in the “one day” folder, which by now is filled with concepts that rarely see the light of day. So when Subaru invited us to crack open that folder of inspiration, we knew we had to go big and let them in on one of our favorites, The Open Pass, a wide-ranging group art exhibit showcasing multifaceted creatives in the outdoor industry.

  2. The Open Pass: Cross-Country Collaboration

    For the final stop of our “Artist’s Journey” series with Subaru, we made our way to the studio of Los Angeles-based photographer Mikael Kennedy. Writer/musician Jeff Thrope joined to talk friendship, road tripping and the American landscape. Mikael and Jeff have been creative comrades for over a decade and their initial “meet up” for a beer in Brooklyn evolved into a collaborative relationship spanning multiple area codes and major personal milestones. … Read More

  3. Jay Nelson: All Roads Lead Back to the Bay

    Jay Nelson is a dude’s dude. With an Instagram account that won’t quit, he is best known for his whimsical campers and elaborate treehouses all made from repurposed wood, a natural material he has been drawn to since childhood. He is reluctant to call himself an “artist” by traditional standards, preferring terms like surfer, painter, father, doodler, husband, fort builder and cave dweller to describe his process as a creative. … Read More

  5. The Open Pass: The Artist’s Journey Featuring Heather Day

    We don’t always know where the Open Pass will take us, but the unknown is at the heart of any adventure. A few weeks ago, we found ourselves in the Bay Area on a mission to meet a Subaru owner artist, Heather Day. What we loved most about talking with Heather is her intrinsic connection to her work. “Pushing and pulling paint around a canvas can often get very physical, which I like,” she explained. Painting from life, she treats each piece like a living organism. She takes what she learns from one canvas and applies it to the next, adding pigments, textures, and layers as she goes throughout her day.   … Read More

  6. The Open Pass: Subaru Presents a RANGE Group Show

    In keeping with our tradition of mixing up mediums, we are excited to announce our first-ever group art show. Curated by RANGE and presented by our friends from Subaru, The Open Pass is the abstract expanse that exists between our urban and outdoor identities. It is the intersection of adventure and design, where flora and fauna meet brick and mortar. The Open Pass redefines what it means to draw inspiration from nature by gathering visionaries who believe the arts and the environment go hand in hand.
