Aptly titled, "The Impact of Language," the exhibition opens on Valentine's Day at the Triton Museum of Art and runs through March 29. In this exhibit, Arnold showcases about a dozen works, including large-sc... [more]

Language Explored in Kathryn Arnold’s Solo Show By Melissa McKenzie http://www.santaclaraweekly.com/2015/Issue-8/language_explored_in_kathryn_arnolds_solo_show.html If someone is characterized as “short,” “chipper” or “stubborn,” it will immediately implant an image about the person being described. Although not often contemplated, there are strong implications associated with language. And, despite there being no standard of what the line is for “... [more]

San Francisco’s Iconic Lexington Club to Shut Its Doors  
by
11/3/14 Posted 11/3/14

In 2009, I assisted with A Trip Down False Memory Lane, an exhibition curated by Jessica Silverman. Featuring works depicting real or imagined memories of the Lexington Club, we installed the show on the patchy maroon walls of San Francisco’s iconic dyke bar. Each image made palpable the fact that the space is so much more than four walls and some bar stools. A destination for lesbians from all over and a staple for many younger city dwellers, the Lex is where a spectrum of LBTQ patrons have... [more]

Street art thrives on large spaces — giving a huge wall to a street artist is like giving a little kid free range of an entire playground. On a sizable concrete wall, street artists can bring all sorts of artistic visions to life. So what happens when you make that surface considerable smaller? That’s the humorous take that “Honey, I Shrunk the Streets” will explore at 1AM Gallery. The show will feature mini billboards, brick walls, trucks and dumpsters courtesy of TY... [more]

Mungo Thomson at Kadist Art Foundation September 17th, 2014 - November 1st, 2014
Posted 9/18/14

Mungo Thompson fancies himself clever. He thinks that public affirmations of private struggle are curious, and can’t wrap his pretty little middle class head around the idea that they might be empowering. He likes Bruce Nauman’s neon spiral form… he likes the idea that it takes up a commercial vehicle to advertise non-commodity slogan. He thought it would be cute to rifle through self-help books and AA 12-step guides, pick out phrases, and pay somebody to fabricate neon spir... [more]

Forrest Bess at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive June 11th, 2014 - September 14th, 2014
Posted 9/4/14

Among the giants (Rothko, Still, and Pollock) represented by the Betty Parsons gallery in the 50’s and 60’s, there roamed the small but potent work of an artist named Forrest Bess. He hailed from Bay City, Texas, a bait fisherman and oil rig roughneck by day, and a conduit for the visualization of eternal truths by night. Parsons heard his name through the grapevine, and when she came to Texas, she ate him up with her silver spoon. Parsons mounted no less than six solo exhibits of Bes... [more]

Glenna MillsSculpture Lives/works in: Oakland, CAWebsite: http://ceramicsbyglenna.comTo purchase contact: Glenna Mills As an artist, I'm delighted with the mysteries and surprises that come from the unconscious. I enjoy starting off with one idea and watching it change on its own into something else. I've argued with clay and the clay has often won out. Sometimes a female refuses to give in to the male that I thought I was making. Sometimes a character refuses to sit. And sometimes what I'm w... [more]

I have always been more interested in the details of an intimate event in nature than the broad panorama of traditional landscape. I begin each painting with a freehand drawing. From a distance the finished work appears realistic. At closer range... [more]
