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]

This is a voyage into the world of Assemblage Art that you may find useful in the sorting through materials that may be used in three dimensional ‘Junk or Found Art’. In the world of ‘Common Objects’ and elements, we find that they can be transformed into a representational art form. There are certain modes of construction and cohesion in the relational paths that bring you to a finished piece of work.
What may look like a series of broken pieces in front of y... [more]

Horsepowered Memories, airbrushed images combined with car parts from past years, is my latest series. My goal as an artist is to strike a universal chord. I create works that are about the world I grew up in and the one I am witnessing now.

The mixed-media works of Cheryl Calleri and the oil paintings of Thekla Hammond, together exhibited under the unifying title "Coalesce," complement each other well enough.

The Oakland Museum of California is hosting their 19th Annual Días de los Muertos exhibition, and this year it has been guest curated by San Francisco muralist Eduardo Pineda.

Installations that have metamorphosed the California Natural Sciences Gallery, where the exhibition is held, creative interpretations of traditional icons, and the colorful surpr... [more]
