Beginning September 1st\, 2013\, 111 Minna Gallery will be celebrating o ur 20th Anniversary with our dear friends at Last Gasp and ALL of our frien ds here in our beloved city of San Francisco\, the entire Bay Area\, across the nation and over seas. In 1993\, 111 Minna Gallery took root in SOMA\, a district that has now become home to a multitude of galleries. Over the l ast twenty years\, we&rsquo\;ve grown and molded with the changing tides of this neighborhood to become a well-deserved household name.

\n

Due to the vast number of people who influenced and supported 111 Minna throughout the past twenty years\, we have many to thank and can only hope to celebrate w ith as many of our friends and patrons as possible this September.\n

As ar t is our lifeline at 111 Minna Gallery\, we&rsquo\;ve constructed a stellar group exhibition comprised of only the finest artists and those whose prof ound effect built our foundation in the art community. We aim to represent the many styles that form our artistic backbone.

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

 

\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.

That generation's dream\, aviled \;
In the mud\, in Monday's dirty light< br />- Wallace Stevens\, \;

The Man with the Blue Guitar 1936 \;


Here is the rise\, the fall\, the labor\, the leisure. The stage for all this is the cramped rectangle whose perimeter keeps us from getting ca rried away. \; Our protagonist is specific\, although his identity is o pen to speculation. In some cases he's aging and alive and in others young and dead\, a porcelain tchotchke on a pedestal. \; He is a man uncomfor tably suspended in an antagonistic relationship between his hungry body and his socialized personality\, his nightly freedom and daily ennui. \; W e encounter him in a dirty\, mundane\, quotidian light. \;

Much like our protagonist's lonesome conflict\, the task of pushing paint around in the studio is a hermitic ac tivity rife with self-scrutiny and painterly indulgences. \; The latter \, in all their periodized effete glory\, perform eloquent descriptions of our affected protagonist. The resulting pictures are tethered to both the p rivate artist and the collective audience\, dimming the distinction between mannerism and sincerity. \;

The structure of the show takes on the logic of a television serie s\, a concept rap album or a biopic. Our protagonist is marooned in his hab itat\, compressed within the murky surfaces of paintings\, four of which ha ng like a sequence of torn out pages. We follow him as he weaves in and out of consciousness\, abstraction\, alone-ness\, self-awareness\, lethargy an d anxiety. Some scenarios skirt suicidal moments or purported sexual failur e\, while others leave us in the dark. Two smaller paintings with mirrored compositions hang in a tê\;te-à\;-tê\;te on a separate wall . White rectangles housing seated figures float on top of ornamental backdr ops that depict archetypes of nature and industry. The subjective interior is measured against the mannered exterior\, while the withdrawn protagonist is permanently situated somewhere between solitude and companionship. In a separate room\, a porcelain bust of the young protagonist brings to mind d eath masks and Soviet - era porcelain figurines. A few framed watercolors h ang nearby\, suggesting airy youthful memories. \;

Sour fruit\, beards\, pockmarked buildings\, cobalt birds\, empty windows and television antennae are all recent additi ons to the artist's palette of motifs. The haptic mixes with the gustatory\ , the celestial with the soiled\, the saturated with the anemic. On these s oupy terms\, our vivid protagonist forfeits from a stalemate between the ar tist\, his work\, and its audience\, leaving nothing behind but a trail of paint.

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition\, the conversation\, featuring new paintings by Danä\;e Anderson opening Wednesday\, September 11\, 2013. Influenced by the objects of indigenous c ulture and trained as an improvisational dancer\, Anderson believes that mu sic\, movement\, and art are one. \; Her compositions arise from the ph ysicality of intuition and observation. She combines elements of language\, objects\, and memory into her paintings to create a visual narrative that documents the human experience.

Danä\;e Anderso n earned a BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1978 and a MFA in 1998 from San Jose State University. Anderson has received a Pollac k - Krasner Foundation Grant\, and was awarded a fellowship from the Wester ns Arts Foundation.

Anno Domini presents... Cement Eclipses< /em>
Solo Exhibition of installation street artist
Isaac Cordal (Spain)

\n

With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement\, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of p edestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses i s a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work inte nds to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the maste r touch of a stage director\, the figures are placed in locations that quic kly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being.

Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of new paint ings by Caragh Thuring. \; In her inaugural exhibition at the gallery\, Thuring exhibits a body of work that ties together ideas and motifs previo usly referenced in her work. \;

\n

Thuring invites a sense of wonder\, presenting several compositions rif e with incongruities of scale and dimension. Meanwhile\, other paintings pr esent tangible objects &ndash\; a window balcony\, an ornately fastened rop e &ndash\; whose properties are fully bound in realism and physics.< span style="font-size: small\;"> \;

\n

Drawing from her own experience\ , Thuring takes inspiration from a range of source material\, including her own photographs\, books\, travels\, memories\, and her knowledge of art hi story. \;Galarus \;and \;San Petronio\, \;for example\, depict the marquetry of a choir stall in Bologna\, while&nbs p\;Pool Palmrecollects surfacing from a swimming pool to encounter a looming palm tree. In both cases the general scale is shifted and obscur ed in an otherwise realistic presentation. \;

\n

Characteristic in her use of unprimed linen\, Thuring&rsq uo\;s paintings feature figures and elements amidst an open background\; la yered paint and unpopulated linen create a depth of field that leaves much to the imagination. A figure constructed of bricks lounges in the corner of one canvas\, while outlined half-figures direct another scene. \;

\n

Tying these together are several the mes repeated throughout: pyramids\, window panes\, brick constructions &nda sh\; each presented in an imaginative arrangement. \;

\n

Caragh Thuring was born in Brussels in 1972. She lives and works in London. Her work is included in many public and private collections\, among them the Tate\, the Zabludowicz Collection\, and the Sa atchi Collection.

Art Works Downtown presents \;Memento Mori\, a street art-b ased installation featuring two unique Bay Area artists -- \;Eddie Coll a and D Young V.

\n

The show opens Friday\, August 30\, 2013 and runs throu gh Friday\, October 11\, 2013 in the Art Works Downtown main gallery locate d at 1337 Fourth Street\, San Rafael\, CA\, 94901. An opening reception wil l be held on September 13\, 2013 from 5-8 p.m. A closing reception will be held on October 11\, 2013\, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Art Works Downtown is ope n to the public Tuesday through Saturday\, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

\n

Memento Mori\, a Latin term for 'remember death'\, is an artistic symbol for remembering the inevitability of death\, and is a continuing theme througho ut Eddie Colla's and D Young V's work. The artists' installations depict th e end of the world juxtapose the rising up of a new world from ashes\, and a future reduced to the tasks of survival and memory.

\n

Included in this e xhibit are the individual artists' drawings and mixed media works on found objects. The gallery will also showcase a number of collaborative pieces de signed specially for Art Works Downtown. These installations representyears of artistic collaboration\, both on the street and in galleries\, where th eir mutual styles\, ideas\, influences\, and perceptions become clearly evi dent. Due to the artists curating their own show\, it is difficult to know exactly what is in store however\, past collaborations have ranged from ela borate large-scale installations and one-of-a-kind murals\, to a hand-paint ed 1968 El Camino.

\n

\n

D Young V:

\n

 \;D Young V has been a resident of San Francisco for the last decade. After rec eiving his MFA from the Academy of Art University in 2006\, he has been pur suing his art in every way possible. D Young V's work ranges from massive g allery installations to murals seen throughout San Francisco\, to literally hundreds of pieces he's pasted on streets all around the world. All of his work comes from an imagined post-apocalyptic narrative that deals with iss ues ranging from culture\, military\, martyrdom and technology. Many of his influences come from science fiction film\, punk sub-culture\, everyday li ving and urban art. Like many \;science-fiction narratives\, his imagin ed world reflects the reality we live in. His every artistic effort tries t o illustrate this world as accurately as possible\, while leaving enough up to viewers to make their own interpretations.

\n

 \;

\n

Eddie Colla :

\n

"There is a visual convers ation that takes place on the streets of urban environments. This conversat ion is dominated primarily by advertising and utilitarian signage and assum es passive participation. Whether invited or not I am going to participate in this conversation. Public spaces were never intended to be coated from t op to bottom with photos of consumer products. These spaces should\, in som e manner\, reflect the culture that thrives in that space" Eddie Colla\, vi sual artist.

\n

 \;

\n

"Some people view what I do as vandalism. I assume th at their objection is that I alter the landscape without permission. Advert ising perpetually alters our environment without the permission of its inha bitants. The only difference is that advertisers pay for the privilege to d o so and I don&rsquo\;t. So if you&rsquo\;re going to call me anything\, it is more accurate to call me a thief\," said Colla.

\n

 \;

\n

Colla attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and graduated from the California Co llege of Arts with a BFA in photography/interdisciplinary fine arts in 1991 . He began his artistic career as a photographer\, working first for the&nb sp\;New York Times \;and later countless magazines\, record la bels and advertising agencies.

The collaborative installation by Jenny Hynes and Dan Homer investigates the unstable nature of shared histories in the context of a fractured upbr inging\, which culminated in the death of Jenny's and Dan&rsquo\;s mother. Jenny Hynes works on silk because of the ethereal quality relating to the d elicate nature of existence. Dan Homer transforms everyday objects like old windows and jugs into sculpture\, using collage techniques to question and explore the vaguely mythic quality of memory and possibility. In addition a collaborative video will play\, exploring similar themes. The pieces in t he collaborative installation are conversational in nature\, incorporating and reconciling the multiple life trajectories of siblings Jenny Hynes and Dan Homer in the context of their shared past. \;  \;  \; \ ;

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.
