Please join Timezone Gallery on January 8th from 5 to 9 pm at 717 Leavenworth St, between Post and Sutter for our first opening reception and solo exhibition featuring the work of Elizabeth Amento. 

Her eye catching gouache drawings and fluffy interactive sculpture of pop craft are a definite visual stimulant. At Timezone Gallery we are committed to highlighting emerging artists whose work is as fun to look at as it is well made. 

To understand the work of Elizabeth Amento one must take Jackson Pollack, Kara Walker, and Cecily Brown, smash their works together, delicately though on small 8 by 8 inch pieces of white archival paper. Then take Claes Oldenburg mess up his work so you can’t tell what it is anymore, and you will have similarly looking but larger then life fluffy interactive installations. Get some curious gallery goers and have them crawl under them, around them and lie down and relax inside them. 

Elizabeth Amento is a new San Francisco based artist who got her edge-a-mo-vacation or MFA at the School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She has recently relocated back to SF and will be having, her first Solo show in the place where she grew up. After you view the show and play with the art you can hang out at our reception in our back yard to celebrate our first opening featuring a fantastic new artist Elizabeth Amento.
