As a white artist painting her surroundings and personal relationships in West Oakland, themes of class, race and communication are present in her work. White&rsquo;s visual language is vulnerable, raw, sincere and accessible as she relies on intuition and emotional honesty to examine the painful and humorous problems inherent in human connection and separation.</p> <p><strong>About the Artist:</strong> Cate White is a painter, writer and occasional sculptor and video artist whose work is characterized by a mix of humor, sincerity and cultural critique. After earning her Bachelor of Arts from Dominican University of California in San Rafael in 1994, White returned to her origins in the rural back-woods of Mendocino County where she spent her twenties and early thirties. She moved to San Francisco in 2002, began to paint and received her Master of Fine Arts from John F. Kennedy University in 2012. She is the winner of the 2014-2015 Tournesol Award from Headlands Center for the Arts and is the creator of the graphic journal book series, <em>The Book of Life</em>. She has lived in West Oakland for six years and makes her living as a landscape gardener.</p> <p><strong>About the Curator:</strong> Nancy Mizuno Elliott is a tenured instructor at City College of San Francisco, where she also runs the City College Art Gallery. Most recently, she was the Curatorial Fellow for Truman State University, and was previously the Exhibitions Director at Richmond Art Center.

Spending the last years touring &ldquo;Population&rdquo;, his ode to a variety of portraits and their permutations with numerous museums across the country, Sea Storm Series is a return to Turner&rsquo;s investigation of the reflective surfaces of sky and cloud. With rich applications, lush brushwork and vibrant color, Turner achieves voluminous form and filtered light, imbuing all with a sense of melancholy and impermanence. Always a master of atmospherics, here scale, color and contrast combine unerringly in his depictions of these dream like configurations. These haze shrouded formations radiate with presence, juxtaposing the transitory with the permanent. The works, though Neo-Romantic, are intriguingly mindful of horizon line and vanishing point, taking the viewer to uncharted visual territory. Vibrating between abstraction and the representative, one is drawn into their physicality while experiencing their shimmering transcendence.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Ray Turner has exhibited extensively in the US, including exhibitions at the Pasadena Museum of Art, the Huntington Museum of Art and the Long Beach Museum of Art. His work has been included in many important public and private collections.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This is Ray Turner&rsquo;s eighth exhibition with Toomey Tourell.</p> Thu, 25 Sep 2014 08:33:21 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Sam Durant - Nathan Cummings Art Building - October 16th 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Sam Durant&nbsp;will discuss his current work that links a multitude of forces unleashed during the first half of the 20th century. &nbsp;His project links the development of psychoanalysts and surrealism to anti-colonial struggle and the ways in which "third world" surrealists opened new paths for a political imaginary in the search of freedom. &nbsp;Durant's project invokes historian&nbsp;Robin Kelley's work linking surrealism to the struggle for racial justice, and Herbert Marcuse's theory of aesthetics to make connections between surrealism's audacious pursuit of the marvelous and the non-aligned movement.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sam Durant&nbsp;is a multimedia artist whose works engage a variety of social, political, and cultural issues. Often referencing American history, he explores the varying relationships between culture and politics, engaging subjects as diverse as the civil rights movement, southern rock music, and modernism. His work has been widely exhibited internationally and in the United States.&nbsp; He has had solo museum exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Kunstverein f&uuml;r die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Dusseldorf, S.M.A.K., Ghent, Belgium and the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery in New Zealand. His work has been included in the Panam&aacute;, Sydney, Venice and Whitney Biennales, and his pieces can be found in many public collections including: The Art Gallery of Western Australia in Perth, Tate Modern in London, Project Row Houses in Houston and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Durant teaches art at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California.<br /><br /><br />Sponsored by the Millicent Greenwell Clapp Fund for Studio Art.</p> Thu, 25 Sep 2014 08:30:11 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Sheila Ghidini, Jeremiah Jenkins, Victoria May, Maria Porges, Lucy Puls, Brooke Westfall - Berkeley Central Arts Passage - September 25th - December 6th <div style="text-align: justify;">Kala is pleased to announce<em>&nbsp;Day Re-dreamed,&nbsp;</em>the latest off-site exhibition at Berkeley Central Arts Passage.

Binding the small canvases (old prints used in the classroom to teach art) together with strips of linen, she creates her work on the reverse of the large, un-stretched patchwork.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sherwood is known for her combination of the traditional technique of painting on canvas in combination with collage of digital imagery.&nbsp; In the new paintings she layers the digital images over the recycled paintings, adding another perceptual layer, repurposing old images to make the new.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Central to art history, the image of the disrobed reclining female has been employed by many male artists, among them Goya, Giorgione, Ingres and Manet. In their day, the highly charged treatments stirred social expectations of the meaning of the horizontal female form, at the time seen as an object embodying standards of womanhood, beauty and sexuality.&nbsp; Sherwood elaborates on the stereotype, allowing others onto this stage. She addresses the question:&nbsp; What if the figure 'at rest', pensive (like a Greek philosopher), is disabled? One wears a brace, one is an amputee, and one has a cane. The interpretation is further challenged by replacing the faces with images of the brain.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>About the Artist:</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Katherine Sherwood&nbsp;</strong>has exhibited at Gallery Paule Anglim for over 20 years.&nbsp; She is a Professor of Art Practice at University of California, Berkeley and has been the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant,&nbsp;a Guggenheim Fellowship Award&nbsp;and&nbsp;the Adeline Kent Award from the San Francisco Art Institute.&nbsp; Her works are in the collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, SFMOMA, the Berkeley Art Museum and the San Jose Museum of Art.</p> </div> Sat, 27 Sep 2014 17:29:54 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list
