Michael Rosenthal Gallery presents The Big Three, an exhibition of innovative new work by 18 young artists. The gallery will host an opening reception for the exhibition on Saturday, January 10 2009 from 6 pm to 9pm. The Big Three will be on view through February 7, 2009.
Guest curators Chelsea Heikes and Mary Anne Kluth selected work from among the most accomplished artists in their peer group for this survey of new regional talent. Many of the participants in The Big Three are recent graduates from Bay Area schools whose work is redefining the boundaries of the local art scene. Among their achievements, artists included in The Big Three have attended the prestigious Bemis Residency in Omaha, Nebraska, exhibited their work in Bay Area Now at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, and in international museums and galleries. Working with a diverse range of traditional and new media that includes pa! int, collage, photography, installation, video, sculpture, and social practice, these talented young Bay Area artists have defined a new vision, characterized by a sense of conceptual play and invention, that revitalizes the classic genres of portraiture, landscape, and still life.
Through their varied approaches, these innovative artists inspire new appreciation for craftsmanship, content and process.
The participating artists are: Scott Barry, Sara Blaylock, Nicholas Bohac, Amy Casey, Nathan Ross Davis, Robyn Engel, Renee Gertler, David Gurman, Katty Hoover, Sangyon Joo, Lauren Lavitt, Christine Monohan, Suzy Poling, Anthony Record, Brion Nuda Rosch, Erik Scollon, Michael Swaine, and Annie Wong.
