SAN FRANCISCO\, CA- 1AM is pleased to present\, “Des igning Outside The Lines”\, opening April 26th< /strong>\, from 6:30-9:30pm\, featuring custom works that explore and reinv ent the classic Lego platform. Expect to see customizations of Lego pieces\ , the Lego Torch lamp and Lego Men\, digital prints\, original paintings an d more. The exhibition will feature 1920s silent movie characters\, lit Leg o Men\, mini mecha\, maps\, guns and wasps- to name a few!

\n

Most of us played with Legos as children\, but some of us never stopped. The artist s in “Designing Outside The Lines” are some of the most pr ominent Lego and toy designers around the world\, spanning from the US to t he Netherlands. Whether they are using record breaking amounts of Lego piec es\, introducing new materials to Lego customization\, combining simple min ifigs with complex machinery\, or anonymously installing ginormous Lego men on public beaches- they are definitely some of the most imaginative artist s out there.

\n

For our premier Lego-inspired show at 1AM Gallery\, cu rator James Brown invited the styles and imaginations of Ego Leonard\, Lego lize It Man\, Bart de Dobbelaer\, Brickthing\, Bill Hewitt\, Carson Catlin\ , Ian Ziobrowski\, Josh Mayhem\, Crestone\, Dee Ten\, One-Eyed-Girl\, Micha el Napolitan\, MeSmithy\, Citizen Brick and Mike Mendez. Join us in a land of Legos on April 26th\, to see all the ingenious creations!

We are delighted to introduce to California Canadian artist Gordon Ha lloran\, well known to world audiences as the creator of Paintings B elow Zero\, ambitious monumental public art installations in Canada\, t he US and Europe\, inspired by glacial walls and exploding with pure pigmen ts interacting with the crystal structure of the ice.

\n

For this double ex hibition -- Ice Break in the gallery space and  Breaking Up is Hard to Do in Corners tone Sonoma's reflecting pool -- Halloran has sourced a modern\, acid-free material that allows him a process for creating permanent sculptures that a re closest in appearance to his frozen works. He says\, "I had the desire t o bring the naturally created ephemeral forms of my ice work into a permane nt but malleable state in order to further investigate the nature of the fr acture\, movement\, and disintegration of our evolving landscape\; to captu re the graphic patterns that emerge from the magnificent interplay of cryst alline growth and collaboratively play with that growth through the fabrica tion of structures that explore the interconnectedness of creation and entr opy."

\n

Ice Break is an evolving commentary inspired by the calving of Arctic icebergs and Claude Monet's impressionist Waterlilies\, a nd explores the nature of ephemeral existence and its relationship to incre asingly technologically-bound societies. Through the presentation of a simp le interplay between seemingly rigid materials and naturally occurring stru cture\, it attempts to awaken us to the ephemeral nature of being. Br eaking Up is Hard to Do uses site\, scale and color to seduce the v iewer with vibrancy\, luring us to the water's edge and into collective pla y. Viewers move around the piece and it moves alongside them. Juxtaposing a bstract sensibility with ecological patterns\, the elements relate to each other as well as their site\, not just in space\, but over time\, as each m oves in response to wind and wave.

\n

Together\, Ice Break an d Breaking Up is Hard to Do openly question our understanding of our environment in transformation -- permanent to ephemeral\, solid to liquid -- a dynamic and enduring landscape in permanent flux.

Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibi tion of new paintings by British artist Nicholas Byrne.  E xhibiting in the gallery for the first time\, Byrne’s intricately layered s urfaces combine abstract pattern and form with geometric structure and flui d figuration.  

\n

The title of the exhibition\, Spring\, means a new beginning and frames a period o f time\; attesting that the paintings\, in spite of their range\, are of on e season. 

\n

Drawing on historical points of reference across mulptiple disciplines\, Byrne’s new works are i nformed by a Gothic sensibility.  In The Nature of Gothic publishe d in The Stones of Venice Vol 2\, 1853\, John Ruskin defines Gothi c character as energized by a community of workmanship and artistic liberty . Reflecting on the role of creativity in the modern era via pre-modern pra ctices\, Byrne layers his paintings with varying motifs\; letters\, ropes\, silhouttes and visage.  These motifs are investigated and re-introduced fr om piece to piece – the repetition a method of searching\, listening. 

\n

Employing copper as a ground\, a mal leable metallic element known for conducting heat and electricity\, Byrne l ayers intense and vibrant color onto the surface\, etching and mapping onto the color\, exposing the pigmentation below and breaking into the soft met al at the base.  Through this process Byrne creates a depth and dimension t hat is both real and implied. 

\n

I n writing\, the language of Nicholas Byrne’s work is complex\, layered in i ntellectual and historical reference.  In actual\, the work cushions these larger questions and pursuits in an elegance\, beauty and rhythm\, that the viewer is drawn to and recongizes as familiar.

Foad S atterfield studies and observes nature to better understands its relationsh ips.  He is inspired by how everything seems to fit together\, and how even diverse elements find harmony. Satterfield's artist statement reads\, "As a painter\, I define Nature as a complex of interrelated systems working in a dynamic process to support life in all its infinite possibilities. Natur e fascinates me. I study it with awe and curiosity. This inquiry stimulates me emotionally\, spiritually and intellectually\, and I often see particul ar combinations of things in Nature that present me with concepts and a hig hly personalized vocabulary of visual associations that inspire my painting s."

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.

The First Emperor\, Qin Shihuang (259-210 BCE) was all these things and more. His storied legac y is rich with enduring achievements\, including the unification of China u nder centralized imperial rule\, brilliant military systems and advanced en gineering and assembly production. He is also remembered for burning scores of books\, burying scholars alive and achieving widespread domination thro ugh devastating bloodshed.

The First Emperor conquered much in t his life\, but his driving purpose was even greater: He sought to conquer d eath. In order to achieve immortality\, he built himself a tomb—a vast unde rground city guarded by a full-size terracotta army including warriors\, in fantrymen\, horses\, chariots and all their attendant armor and weaponry.
First unearthed in 1974\, the underground tomb of the First Emper or is a revelation for the ages\, an astonishing discovery on par with Egyp t’s mummies and elaborate tombs. Contemporary observers continue to be enth ralled by his legacy\, and it is through this ongoing interest that the Fir st Emperor did indeed achieve immortality. This exhibition includes ten fig ures—only a representative sample of the actual army\, which (to date) incl udes over 8\,000 excavated life-sized figures and over 10\,000 weapons.

San Franciscooooo! Come out to play-aayyy!

\n

We're unveiling China's Te rracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy with an ultra-high-energ y event that's sure to shake the generals\, cavalrymen\, and archers in the Terracotta Army out of their 2\,000 year slumber. How? With CHERYL\, a zan y artist collective that throws "the Big Apple's most outrageous party" (Time Out London). They've earned a worldwide cult following for thei r video art\, museum installations\, and "...massive\, sweaty\, costumed af fairs..." (Paper Magazine).

Inspired by the Terracotta Warriors and '70s cult gang film  The Warriors\, CHERYL will lead revelers in turf war antics and a dance rumble. Come with your posse and claim your territory with insane mov es until no one's left standing on the dance floor. Roll deep with the Extr a Action Marching Band\, drinks\, bites\, a photo booth\, and more. DJ Hako bo (owner of SOM Bar) will hold court and spin the best jams. Take a breath er from the party euphoria and step into the galleries to be the first to s ee China's Terracotta Warriors. We're the only West Coast venue to present this exhibition of astonishing archaeological wonders.

The First Emperor never saw this coming. Get your tickets now.

Stone was one of the most commonly used materials in anc ient Israel. Its local abundance made it suitable for use in the manufactur e of many different types of artifacts. Limestone was the most available st one\, and was used in building construction as well as in the production of weights\, weapons\, jewelry\, and agricultural tools. Basalt\, a volcanic stone\, was also commonly used in ancient Israel. The porous nature of basa lt made it an ideal material for grinding tools. Despite the prolific use o f stone in ancient Israel\, it is often undervalued by archaeologists in fa vor of “prettier” or “more interesting” artifacts. However\, stone has much to contribute to the understanding of daily life and the use of natural re sources in the ancient world.

We conceived of this exhibit as a response to David Sleeth’s Mining the Collection 2013 exhibit\, “Site/Structure\,” which is on display in the Doug Adams Gallery from June 6th-August 23rd\, 2 013. Inspired by David’s pieces\, we chose to focus on stone as material an d medium. Rather than presenting stone in its archaeological context\, we d ecided to display different sizes\, shapes\, textures\, and types of stone artifacts to illustrate the variety and aesthetics of each individual objec t. De-contextualizing the objects and interpreting them in this abstract ma nner is a direct reaction to David’s pieces\, which re-imagine individual a rtifacts and stone architecture. Our approach aims to put the two exhibits in a dialogue of opposition and complement.

As noted above\, the Doug Adams Gallery exhibit\, entitled "Site/Structure\," features the work of David Sleeth. For more in formation\, visit the Doug Adams Gallery Website.

Co-curated by Suzanne Tan and Ann Weber\, this exhibition explores the primal and evolutionary impulses o f shape\, form\, and figure as expressed through distinct works from an acc omplished and diverse group of sculptors. The work selected for this exhibi tion hovers between figuration and  abstraction and explores the limits of that ambiguous territory.
