Curator Geoffrey Smith of ArtTreasures.net has been working diligently with veteran Bay Area artist Takeshi Nakayoshi to assemble a diverse yet complementary group of contemporary Bay Area artists, to organize solo and group shows for these artists, and to help market their works. “Bay Area Figurative Art: A Contrast in Styles” is the third show at Chroma Art Design for this group. For this show, three new artists have been added to the group including William McElhiney, a former student of Richard Diebenkorn and the San Francisco Art Institute. In addition two young women figurative artists, Jennifer Bloomer and Jennifer Downey have agreed to participate. Selections of Takeshi Nakayoshi’s recent figurative works, created during the 2006-2009 period are also included.
