Waiting in our inbox the other day was an exciting update from Corbett Leith.
This past week San Francisco was besides itself as bright blue skies brought sunshine and warmth to every corner of the city. On one of these recent glorious spring mornings we trekked up to Catherine Palmer’s home studio just below Twin Peaks.
Like forms emerging gradually from the fog, the abstract paintings of Fain Hancock and Lisa Kairos exist in the space of liminal perception. Through each artist’s unique, complex process that is both additive and reductive, the collection celebrates subtle and austere beauty.
Join us tonight to see the paintings appear before your eyes.
There is always a steady stream of new artwork coming into the gallery. Like a stream, sometimes it flows as a babbling brook while other times it gushes like a mighty river. This spring, as if prompted by the snowmelt high in the Sierras, our artists have been bringing us some great new artworks. While you can always keep track of the newest and freshest art on our website here we wanted to point out some gems you may have missed. Read the rest of this entry »
It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and time to create a unique body of work for a solo exhibition. Usually after all of that build up an artist wants to take a well deserved break from the studio. Initially, we were a little surprised to hear that Gail Ragains was back in the studio so quickly after her successful exhibition In the Moment last month. That is, until we saw this short video of Gail working in her studio. Shot by her nephew, Aaron Holmgren, the video details the artist in her studio surrounded by soft light, blooming flowers, and her trusty dog Tango. With all of that waiting in her studio, why would any sensible artist want to be anywhere else?
All the work for our April exhibition Kaleidoscope is on the wall and ready for our First Thursday artists reception. For those of you unable to join us because you are on the other side of the world we have the following installation walk through to give you a little out of body experience.
From a grid to clusters and even a tight grouping we are fans of finding interesting ways to hang artwork. Currently up on the gallery walls we have taken a group of new Katherine Valentine landscape paintings and hung them along the horizon line. The grouping creates the effect of one varied and long landscape, taking the strengths of each individual painting and amplifying them exponentially.
