Leslie Morgan at Zonal June 19th, 2009 - July 31st, 2009
Posted 6/21/09

(Author's note: the following is excerpted from a longer post on my blog, Arteaser) On Friday, I ventured back to Hayes Valley for the opening of "Dive In" at Zonal: Featuring aquatic themed prints and paintings by Leslie Morgan, the show will be up through July: The nostalgic elements of Morgan's work fit well with Zonal's aesthetic: Live music by Grinn & Barrett: Most of the work in the show was paintings over photographs, including some from the "Pool Glee" series: A coupl...

Posted 6/21/09

(Author's note: The following is excerpted from a longer post on my blog, Arteaser) We headed over to Fecal Face Dot Gallery (FFDG) for the latest installment of their "In-N-Out" series, which featured Brett Amory: I really enjoyed a new series of small paintings (above) based on a dream: Amory also had a couple of new pieces from the "Waiting" series up: Sadly, the show was only up for four days and is already down. As the name implies, the "In-N-Out" series are week long shows with openings on Thursdays. Amory (below right) was in attendan... [more]

(Author's note: This is an excerpt from a slightly longer post on my blog, Arteaser)   I made my first visit to Limn Gallery, which is tucked away behind the Limn furniture store on Townsend. One of the two galleries was featuring local artist, Rik Ritchey (below left with a friend and collector), who had a series of mixed-media paintings on polyurethane foam: I enjoyed how the applied acrylic and ink created stunning organic shapes: A closer look revealed embedded items, such as candles, and stitching.  ...

Dana-harel_eagle_lg We are all animals: Dana Harel at Frey Norris  
Dana Harel at Gallery Wendi Norris April 2nd, 2009 - May 3rd, 2009
Posted 4/7/09

(Author's note: This is an excerpt of a longer post on my blog, Arteaser)   For my last stop of the night, I went to Frey Norris Gallery, which was featuring Dana Harel's series, "Kin": For someone who has seen images of this series, it was great to see the life-size scale to which Ms. Harel draws her hand animals (below): What these pictures do not capture well is the fine detail of subtle textural mutations to the subject hand's skin, which are at once anatomically correct for the implied animal and incorrect for the human model: The show is up until May 3 in the downstairs of...

Dana-harel_eagle_lg Preview: An Arteaser Introduction to Dana Harel  
Dana Harel at Gallery Wendi Norris April 2nd, 2009 - May 3rd, 2009
Posted 3/17/09

Born in Tel Aviv, Dana Harel observed her father and grandparents paint in their leisure time. Pursuing art only as a hobby, her family members had developed meticulous technique, but did not attempt new content, which shaped her early experiences with art: "I took some art classes, but I was never pushed to think for myself. It was kind of about learning techniques or painting or looking at other art or landscapes and painting what you see" The practically-minded Harel studied architecture at... [more]
