First Thursday opening reception for the “Urban Grid” exhibition!
URBAN GRID (October 5–30, 2011)
A group show featuring a series of new paintings by Franco-Canadian artist Françoise Issaly, who has drawn her inspiration from street and city maps of important locations in her life. Additionally — a first for Santa Barbara — we invited actress-artist Ashleigh Sumner to take part in this exhibit with her urban, graffiti-style works in acrylic and resin on wood.
A selection of convincing urban style and city-themed abstract works by ten more artists — Agustin Castillo, Patrick Dintino, Gordon Huether, Michael Kessler, Rose Masterpol, Jack N. Mohr, Michael Moon, Taraneh Mozafarian, Silvia Poloto, and Jack Reilly — rounds out this strikingly bold exhibition.
