DESCRIPTION

Varnish Fine Art presents DECADE-1, a group exhibition of fourteen artists to celebrate the gallery's first ten years in the art scene. Founders Jen Rogers and Kerri Stephens continue to direct the San Francisco-based gallery into the next decade after an exciting ten years presenting contemporary art in the US and Europe.

In this exhibition, Varnish Fine Art brings together a diverse group of artists whose work is emblematic of the artistic values the gallery holds dear. Each of these artists infuses their works with meaningful messages while displaying their finely honed skills. Not afraid to walk the edge, these painters, sculptors, print makers and photo illustrators take the viewer on journeys of the mind and soul.

Featuring paintings by Jennybird Alcantara, Robert Bowen, Victor Castillo, Chris Mars, Christian Rex Van Minnen, Lee Harvey Roswell, and Isabel Samaras; sculpture by Ron Garrigues, Brian Goggin, Jessica Joslin, and Lucien Shapiro; photo illustrations by Ransom & Mitchell; animated collage by Rob Reger; screenprints by Chuck Sperry.
