As the first South Bay art fair Silicon Valley Contemporary was met with a little resistance, but in the end it was highly attended and the art was pretty great.

Place., 2012, HD video David Castillo Gallery, Miami This video piece was not only an aesthetic delight (mesmerizing, really) but quite funny and the artist... [more]

Orlonda Uffre at International Museum Of Women March 9th, 2009 - March 9th, 2009
Posted 3/9/14

Sanja Alajbegovic, Editorial Coordinator at I.M.O.W. suggested an interview with Orlonda Uffre feeling that we would have a mutual understanding. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to speak with this artist-philosopher-activist who is not afraid to question the status quo. I am honored to know such an individual, whose wisdom and beauty shines from within. I think that the interview is a fitting and deserving complement to Orlonda Uffre's paintings- her words are thoughtful, confident and... [more]

A new San Francisco startup is making its mark with an art gallery outside the traditional setting – in train cars. WanderArt is building a mobile app for public art that’ll let users share the street art they find, and they’re hoping to get the word out by bringing works by local Bay Area artists to BART cars. By filling all six of the ad spaces in the cars with six different artworks, they’re aiming to create mini moving galleries on the rails, which, if you ask this regular B... [more]

Marci Washington at Rena Bransten Gallery 2/3/14 Posted 2/3/14

“Once upon a time, in a time both past and present, there lived an ancient castle upon a rock – surrounded on all sides by a dark and churning sea and only accessible at low tide. Over this castle a spell has descended, a spell of sleep – rendering the inhabitants somnambulists trapped halfway between life and death and forced to walk in languid nightmares. From the castle and into the woods, two sisters have fled. From their makeshift shelter they try every day to craft a... [more]

(Image: Kathryn Arnold, A Poet's Momentos, 2010; © Kathryn Arnold) Kathryn Arnold (lives in San Francisco, CA) The paintings are a result of intuitive nonobjective processes and contain my search for visual "magic". The sense of touch and chaotic energy of color and marks play an important role in building up layers that function to create and encompassing, enveloping field and bewildering space. The grid at times becomes a reference point and the intrinsic relating of parts form poet... [more]

20131218074015-where_the_beginning_meets_the_end_full_view Watchlist Artist: Terry Berlier  
by
Terry Berlier at San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) 12/18/13 Posted 12/18/13

The seemingly nonsensical title of this exhibition is actually taken from the term “loop erased random walk,” a mathematical theory that Terry Berlier does not claim to know anything about. However, she likes the words and the abstractness of the phrase – a phrase that evolved from an exercise she gave to her Kinetic Sculpture class at Stanford when she asked the students to come up with three words that suggested movement. Terry Berlier’s work is rooted in experimentation, r... [more]
