FREE PUBLIC EVENT– 1AM is pleased to present\, Üb ermensch\, a solo show by Ales “BASK” Hostomsky that opens J uly 5th from 6:30-9:30pm. Übermensch will showcase works depicting children painted as superheroes on found and weathered surfaces that exhibit an energetic urban art aesthetic.  The term “übermensch”\, coined by Friedrich Nietzsche\, refers to a state of being super-human\; a state which Nietzsche believed mankind should strive to obt ain. Expect to see a mix of iconic comic book imagery and playful represent ations of children upon panels and box frames.

\n

 During h is childhood\, the idea of God as a form of salvation seemed like a foreign concept\, but the thought of becoming a super-man seemed obtainable or\, a t least\, something worth striving for. BASK's highly textural works of chi ld-like figures upon layered\, urban backdrops with vibrant comic book icon ography recall the fantastical imaginings of his youth.

\n

Bask’s work has appeared in countless publications in both advertising and editorial c apacities. He has been shown in the Florida International Museum as well as the Jacksonville Museum of Modern Art\, which also has his work in its per manent collection. In addition to doing work for Death Cab For Cutie\, Prim us\, and RIDE Snowboards\, he was recently commissioned for a series of can vases for the backdrop in Iron Man 3.

A new leaf gallery | sculpturesite is pleas ed to announce the exhibition "BLACK\, WHITE\, RED - A Sculpture Sh ow\," on display from Jul. 13 - Sept. 29\, 2013. An opening recept ion will take place at the gallery on Saturday\, July 13 from 2-4pm.

Removing chroma from artworks yields a black\, white and gray p alette. Removing gray offers a study in intense contrast. So what happens w hen one strong color\, Red\, is added back into the Black and White mix? "G athering works by 14 artists from as far as Romania to create a cohesive sc ulpture show based entirely on color (or absence of color) was a fascinatin g challenge!" says Brigitte Micmacker\, gallerist and curator. "In this exh ibition\, my purpose is to add the pop of red to the high contrast of black and white. Contrast is still absolute\, but chroma is back."

\n

The resulting exhibition features work in various materials\, subject matters\, and prices in Black\, White\, Red or any combination. We are deli ghted to have Bella Feldman rejoin us with this show\, and to introduce four new artists: Harem6\, comprised of Roma nian pair Ildiko Muresan and Flavia Marele\, presents a series of wall-hung works in a unique hybrid of drawing and sculpture\; North Carolina's Mellie Lonnemann shows figura tive ceramic work\; and Bay Area artist Carol Koffel will create a site-specific installation by balancing delicate white porcelain c atchments on an architectural structure of red masonry line.

\n

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a so lo exhibition\, Love &\; War\, featuring new paintings by Donald Bradford opening Wednesday\, June 19\, 2013. Growing up around the family o wned wedding chapel\, Donald Bradford’s paintings reference his childhood m emories of love and marriage. The home where he spent much of his childhood functioned as a full chapel\, set just off the kitchen\, complete with pew s\, an organ\, and stained glass windows.  The chapel was open 24 hours and couples waiting to get married often spilled over into the living and dini ng rooms of the house.  Bradford’s paintings are influenced by the themes o f love\, weddings\, and marriage that dominated the landscape of his early years.  In his latest series\, Bradford adds elements related to gay marria ge and the controversial Proposition 8\, which is soon to be decided by the Supreme Court.  His paintings of bulletin boards and love letters blend im ages of “traditional marriage” with the iconography of social equality.

\n

Born and raised in Yuma\, Arizona\, Donald Bradford now resides in the Bay Area.  He received a BFA from University of Arizona\, and a MFA from U niversity of California\, Santa Barbara.  This is his first solo exhibition with Andrea Schwartz Gallery.

\n

Andrea Schwartz Gallery was establis hed in 1982 and is located in the South of Market district of San Francisco in our new gallery space located at 545 – 4th Street. ASG exhib its contemporary work of mid-career artists from the Bay Area and across th e country.  ASG is a member of SFADA.  Gallery Hours are Monday - Friday 9 - 5\, Saturday 1 – 5.

Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibi tion of new paintings by artist Sarah Cain.  Exhibiting at the gallery for the third time\, Cain debuts a series of works on canvas h ighlighting her unique blending of formal geometric principles with layered dimension and collaged materials. 

\n

The ability to merge opposing elements without diminishing their indivi dual attributes is a cornerstone of Sarah Cain’s practice.  In ‘synchronize d dreaming’ Cain places multiple imperfectly horizontal cardboard panels ac ross the canvas surface to create a look of ramshackle hardwood flooring.  The cardboard panels are then painted into square sections and covered loos ely in a mix of spattered paint\, gold leaf\, prisms and screws.  The step- by-step movement from layer to layer holds reign on the piece\,  keeping a balance between the chaotic and the controlled. 

\n

This balance between chaotic and controlled is also seen i n the duality between Sarah Cain’s work and her personal experience.  The o bjects embedded in Cain’s canvases are sourced from her own daily movements \, directly or indirectly.  Title word associations\, always extant\, span from transparent to opaque. The life of the painter and the life of the pai nting are inherently intertwined. < /span>

Our bodies are moving canvases \; the orna­\;ments we wear are seen from different angles\, in bright s un and evening shadows\, at simple gatherings and fancy events. While jewel ry often proclaims the wealth and status of its owner\, each object can als o tell other stories. These are stories of the cycle of life&mdash\;engagem ents\, weddings\, births\, deaths. Jewelry can function as a talisman\, enc apsulating our wishes for protection or hopes for prosperity.

On view in gallery 11 of the Southeast Asian galleries (October 20\, 2012&nda sh\;August 3\, 2014) is a remarkable selection of jewelry from the James an d Elaine Connell Collection. After donating their collection of Thai cerami cs to the Asian Art Museum in 1989\, the Connells began collect­\;ing je welry\, selecting rare objects from a wide range of Southeast Asian culture s. The forty-one pieces of jewelry on display\, which were recently donated to the museum\, come primarily from Indonesia but also include examples fr om the Philippines\, Malaysia\, and Burma.

Ancient Indian texts describe a region called \;Suvarnadvipa \;(&ldquo\;Golden Island&rdquo\; or &ldquo\;Golden Peninsula&rdquo\;)\, a term thought by man y to des­\;ignate the Indonesian islands\, particularly Sumatra. Sumatra is rich in gold deposits that were exported throughout the archipelago. Go ld has long been treasured for its luster\, malleabil­\;ity\, and resist ance to corrosion. In many of these island cultures\, gold was associated w ith the sun and with the ancestral deities.

While many of the ob jects on display are gold\, other materials were also used for ornamentatio n. Bells\, beads\, bones\, beaks&mdash\;Southeast Asians made jewelry from a vast array of materials\, both imported and local. Traditions of jewelry making are especially rich among the peoples of Mindanao Island and the Luz on highlands of the Philippines and a case in the display exhibits objects from these regions.

The jewelry of neighboring regions (or even within an area) can be dramatically varied\, including both strikingly bold forms and objects finely crafted with intricate detail. Certain shapes\, l ike the omega-shape &Omega\;\, spread across thousands of miles and are lin ked to notions of female fertility. Other forms\, like the huge plate-shape d gold chest ornaments called \;piring mas \;(gold plates) \, are found only in a small number of eastern Indonesian islands.

Most of the objects on display most likely date from 1800-1900\, but it is possible some are much older. Jewelry of these types is no longer made i n many of these regions\, although heirlooms are still kept\, treasured\, a nd worn on ceremonial occasions. As a group these objects illustrate the gr eat diversity of techniques\, materials and functions of jewelry made by so me of the many distinct cultural societies of Southeast Asia.

Some of the Bay Area’s most exciting co ntemporary artists respond to the question: what is Asia?
\n \n
Asian influences are pervasive in U.S. culture\, perhaps nowhere more so than in the Bay Area. But we each encounter Asia di fferently—some have the intimacy of lineage\, while others might have littl e awareness. In Proximities\, a three-part exhibition\, a multiplici ty of perspectives comes together at the museum\, with works that stimulate dialogue around individual ideas about Asia. Proximities 1: What Time I s It There? (May 24–July 21) presents themes related to landscape\, ima gined and real. Proximities 2: Knowing Me\, Knowing You examines Asi a as seen through family and community (Oct 11–Dec 8). Proximities 3: Im port/Export considers trade and commerce (Dec 20\, 2013­–Feb 16\, 2014) .
\n


This exhibition is curated by Glen Helfand\, an independent wr iter\, critic\, curator\, and educator.

\n

This exhibition was organized by the Asian Art Museum. Presentation at the Asian Art Museum is made possibl e with the generous support of Graue Family Foundation and Columbia Foundat ion.

In the Moment: Japanese Art from the Larry Ellison Colle ction will introduce 64 exceptional artworks spanning 1\,100 years.

\n
The exhibition explores the dynamic nature of art s election and display in traditional Japanese settings\, where artworks are often temporarily presented in response to a special occasion or to reflect the change of seasons. In the Moment also considers Mr. Ellison’s active involvement in displaying art in his Japanese-style home\, shedding light on his appreciation for Japan’s art and culture.

< span style="font-size: small\;">Included in the exhibition are significant works by noted artists of the Momoyama (1573–1615) and Edo (1615–1868) peri ods along with other important examples of religious art\, lacquer\, woodwo rk\, and metalwork. Highlights include a 13th–14th century wooden sculpture of Shotoku Taishi\; six-panel folding screens dating to the 17th century b y Kano Sansetsu\; and 18th century paintings by acclaimed masters Maruyama Okyo and Ito Jakuchu.

"T his exhibition offers a rare glimpse of an extraordinary collection\," said Jay Xu\, director of the Asian Art Museum. "We aim to present it in a fres h and original way that explores traditional Japanese principles governing the relationship of art to our surroundings and social relationships."
