APRIL 25, 2011 -- There is a new exhibit in town that promises to be refreshing and exciting with an intriguing grouping of medium to delight the eye.  Opening at the 901 Market Street Atrium (2nd floor), San Francisco on May 9th is The Art of Passages; featuring Seamus Berkeley, Mi’Chelle Fredrick, N. Teddy Goldsworthy-hanner, Christine Hanlon, Feng Jin and Michelle Nye working in the mediums of painting – oil, acrylic, watercolor and encaustic – sculpture and photography.

The Art of Passages represents life experiences as defined through each artist’s visual expression.  Seamus Berkeley, whose paintings are in oil or acrylic, uses his paintings as a means of practicing discovery, of seeing and connecting to an incredible, alternative view of the world.  Mi’Chelle Fredrick’s photographs in the show represent her fascination with the natural world, she states that “For as long as I can remember, I have looked at the world as if sizing up a scene for a photo or painting,” as is evident in the abstractions she creates.

Encaustic Painting – a mixture of beeswax, dammar resin and oil paint combined with heat – is another medium with unique physical properties in the paintings of N. Teddy Goldsworthy-hanner. This method of painting has allowed fragmented memories and depth of color to surface in layer after layer of each piece making each of her paintings a collage of emotions.

Christine Hanlon’s focus in her watercolor landscapes is a reflection of her environmental concerns as well as her feeling for the transcendent beauty of nature and the healing power of the experience of painting in nature.  Feng Jin’s metal sculpture is an intimate dialogue between man and the boundless strength of metal, “an expression of all the thoughts, emotions, dreams, passions, destinies and desires that constantly bounce out of my mind.”

Michelle Nye’s ethereal large-scale photographic landscapes represent her journey: “I went hunting for an America promised in a dream and found the march of suburbia…I found intersections of nature and man which spoke like urgent metaphors.”

This exhibit is a culmination of each artist’s journey into the art of passages.

The Opening Reception is Thursday, May 12th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  The show ends on October 7th, 2011.  901 Market St., San Francisco is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
