FFDG is pleased to present Oak land-based artist John Felix Arnold III in his first solo show with the gal lery entitled &ldquo\;No Destination&rdquo\; including paintings\, fabricat ed found wood assemblages\, works on paper\, small sculptural works\, and s ound. An opening reception is scheduled for \;Friday\, October 3rd  \;(6-9pm). Beer and wine will be available. John Felix Arnold III will be p resent.

\n

Expanding upon his visual nar rative of the future past\, Arnold has incorporated several abstract works which metonymically hint at this time rather than literally depicting it. T he pieces feature his post-apocalyptic narrative\, whose figures\, in this installment\, have woken up from a collective dream allowing the artist to explore his own experiences with meditative visions in ancient temples that contain collective resonance. The works carry the historical weight of ass emblage\, with actual origins in the streets from which they were recovered . But they evolve through the combination of weathered\, industrial materia ls and Arnold&rsquo\;s impeccable painting skills bringing about a dynamic tension. Featuring chaotic figures\, onomatopoeic flashes\, layered resins and stains\, and even what looks to be periwinkle blue\, this body of work builds on Arnold&rsquo\;s recent exhibitions by opening it to more intangib le possibilities.

\n

John Felix Arnold I II was born in 1980 in Durham\, North Carolina\, and currently lives and wo rks in Oakland\, CA. He was exposed to the mid 80s New York City art scene as a child\, while his father was with Pilobolus Dance Theatre. He graduate d from the Pratt Institute in 2002 with a BFA in Communication Design but m oved to San Francisco for graduate study in printmaking at the San Francisc o Art Institute.

\n

Arnold&rsquo\;s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States i ncluding the SFMoMA Artists&rsquo\; Gallery\, the Luggage Store Gallery\, t he Shooting Gallery\, ArtNowNY\, Superchief\, and Queens Nails Projects. La st year\, he was also invited by Spes-Lab Gallery in Tokyo to hold a month- long residency and exhibition.

Dialogue has always been an integral part of learning in tra ditional Jewish contexts. Now\, The Contemporary Jewish Museum repurposes t he centuries-old practice of havruta&mdash\;the study of religious texts by people in pairs&mdash\;for the contemporary art community. Artist Lindsey White collaborates with comedian Ron Lynch in the first showing of a new exhibition series\, In That Case: Havruta in Contempora ry Art.

\n

In That Case: Havruta in Contemporary Art brings individual Bay Area artists together with a scholar\, scientis t\, writer\, or other thinker of his or her choice for a ten-week fellowshi p in creativity. The resulting collaborations will be presented in The Muse um&rsquo\;s Sala Webb Education Center.

\n

San Francisco-based artist Lindsey White is creating a type of sight-gag index\, through video\, photo graphy\, and sculpture\, and working with the language of magic and comedy to present the unexpected and impossible in everyday life.

\n

Ron Lync h is an American stand-up comedian\, actor\, and writer. He has appeared in a number of movies and television shows and has worked as a voice actor fo r several animated shows.

\n

Together White and Lynch will engage in a larger conversation about how to activate a joke and about the physical na ture of being a performer.

In 2011\, Arcega built a hand- made\, collapsible Pacific outrigger canoe and named it Baby for h is solo exhibition at San Francisco&rsquo\;s Luggage Store Gallery. Inspire d by the correspondence between Thomas Jefferson and Lewis &\; Clark\, A rcega set forth to paint an updated picture of North American people by sai ling Baby on rivers and waterways across the U.S. The first leg of Baby&rsquo\;s journey occurred on May 21\, 2011 from Richmond\, V A (seat of the Confederacy)\, and concluded near Jamestown\, VA (the first successful British colony). Later\, Arcega and  \;Baby sailed in Chincoteage Bay\, Pokemoke River\, Mississippi River\, Bayou St. John\, Rio Grande/Pecos River and San Francisco Bay.

\n

This project examines the people of the Nacirema (&ldquo\;American &rdquo\; spelled backwards\, and an anthropological term from Horace Mitche ll Miner&rsquo\;s 1956 essay "Body Ritual among the Nacirema\," that takes satirical aim at anthropological papers attempting to define &ldquo\;others &rdquo\; in U.S. culture.) \; Arcega shares\, &ldquo\;This work explore s contact languages\, Pidgins and Creoles\, often referred to as mediums fo r inter-ethnic communication. Baby takes that medium role and beco mes both a vehicle for geographic navigation as well as a metaphor for inte rcultural navigation.&rdquo\;

\n

With th is Grove Street installation\, Baby will be suspended in the space \, becoming more of a thought-object\, rather than a vessel. \; Passers by will encounter a view of Baby through the windows\; it will ca rry their own reflection as well as the constant reflection of City Hall. & nbsp\;This dynamic positioning serves to provide new context for Baby&rsquo\;s role as a medium and metaphor for communication.

\n

Baby will also be featured in the group e xhibition\, Everyone&rsquo\;s Ocean at the Santa Cruz Museum of Ar t and History from December 19\, 2014 &ndash\; April 19\, 2015.

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition featuring new paintings by Philip Buller\, wi th an opening reception held on Wednesday\, October 8th from 5:30 &ndash\; 7:30 pm.

\n

In this new body of work\, Used Paintings\, Phili p Buller questions the use of a painting for both the painter and the viewe r. \; While the viewers can determine the use of a painting for themsel ves\, for Buller the paintings are a vehicle of creative and personal growt h. \; Guided by his subconscious and intuition\, Buller first focuses o n composition\, allowing meaning to evolve from shape and shadow. \;

\n

Philip Buller has exhibited at the Elliott Louis Gallery\, Vancouver\ , BC\, California Museum of Art\, Santa Rosa\, CA\, Susan Street Fine Art\, Solana Beach\, CA\, and Alpha Gallery\, Boston\, MA. \; Buller receive d his MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1994. \; Th is is his ninth exhibition at Andrea Schwartz Gallery.
