DESCRIPTION

With a mixture of high-brow, low-brow, and every brow in between, Studio Quercus is proud to present Space, a massive group exhibition and gallery-wide installation on view July 5 through August 17, 2013. Join us Saturday, July 13, for the artist reception and celebration of our 5 Year Anniversary with live music, refreshments, prizes, and more!

In true Studio Quercus fashion, 20+ emerging and established artists and curators take over the gallery ‘space’ to create a fully-immersive epic installation. Humor, beauty, absurdity, and awe abound as visitors enter Spaceship Quercus to view works that include painting, drawing, sculpture, video, and installation created around the theme of space and tapping into the imagination of anyone who’s looked up at the stars and wondered “what the heck is going on out there?”.

Participating artists and contributors to the exhibit include Rocky Angel, Emil Barber, Joy Broom, Jeff Carr, Susan Casentini, Arial Coupe, Nick Diphillipo, Gael Fitzmaurice, Tyler James Hoare, Alex Jackson, Mike Kendall, Abe Kummerow, Grace Lannon, Carrie Lederer, Jerry Leisure, Michael Mew, Kyle Milligan, Sarah Padgham, Marcel Patzwald, Sarah Ratchye, Walter Robinson, Dan Seneres, Susan Sharman, Tim Sharman, Sam Vaughan, Jim Whiteaker, Frank Zincavage.

The exhibition coincides with Studio Quercus’s 5th Anniversary. Founded in 2008 by Susan Casentini and Kyle Milligan, the interdisciplinary gallery is a space for full-scale individual and group art exhibitions, installations, and performance events located in downtown Oakland. With the community in mind, the non-profit gallery cultivates creative exploration and an exchange of ideas, allowing for the unexpected to happen.
