20150306231849-tenderloin_institute_of_art My MFA: A Labor of Love (and Wine)  
at SFAQ [Project Space] April 24th, 2015 - April 25th, 2015
Posted 4/29/15

I entered the small, unassuming gallery space as a bearded head popped out from the back of the room and said, “Are you here to get your MFA?” “Yes!” I replied cheerfully. Because I was. I read that I could get an MFA in just one day at the Tenderloin Institute of Art, hosted by SFAQ, and I was immediately on board. If showing up was the application process, I was already excelling with flying colors. The man introduced himself as Dean Jeremiah Jenkins, and together... [more]

Cheryl Calleri, Thekla Hammond at Vessel Gallery October 2nd, 2013 - October 26th, 2013
Posted 10/23/13 Author: DeWitt Cheng Curator: Lonnie Lee 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. But the two artists went beyond that level of dialogue and coalesced — or, more prosaically, collaborated — on a joint project, a video installation, "Co-Motion," with music by Armando Mafulo. I...

Dream Vortex Visualization, mixed media on paper, 9 x 12 inches, 2012. (image courtesy of Studio 110 Projects) Imagine… You stand at the center of a vortex. Images swirl around and around, familiar shapes beginning to take form. A solitary buffalo whirls past followed by a group of football players, a humanoid monster stomping on an unsuspecting male figure, another figure appears to be talking to huge flowers. The images appear to be hand drawn, but three-dimensional simultaneously. You c... [more]

Ian Kimmerly at Dolby Chadwick Gallery 6/5/13 Posted 6/5/13

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Continuous Wave, an exhibition of new paintings by Ian Kimmerly. Kimmerly boldly embraces the disparate by integrating various styles and techniques into each painting. Softly blurred photorealistic figures slip between abstract gestures while gleaming, thickly impastoed streaks of paint are counterbalanced by bright, geometric pops of color. Though the final paintings depend on a number of different factors, his process typically involves the same set of... [more]

O the sleeping bag contains the body but not the dreaming head on show at the Altman Siegel Gallery from April 18th to June 1st, features work by three artists; Alice Channer, Aaron Flint Jamison and Anicke Yi. The title is taken from a poem by Matthea Harvey, a dark meditation on containment, or it’s failure. This is the theme that unites the three artists, whose work at first seems unconnected in medium and subject. Alice Channer’s Body Fluids is the first to confront me as I enter the g... [more]

Los Angeles, CA) I am a sculptor and installation artist interested in the visual displays of decay and growth, as well as time and history as physical entities. Objects, whether undisturbed for long periods, in frequent use, or victims fallen to incidents such as fire or flood, have their own life cycles of accumulation and decomposition. I create these changes over a... [more]
