Maker Thursdays: June Edition

 June 29th 6-10pm

Every month, on the last Thursday of every month to be exact, we select a group of 6-8 artists to join us here at the gallery to hand-make artwork on a small scale. Each artist will work in a different medium. Think a little bit of everything: origami, embroidery, sculpture, jewelry, paper-cutting, etc. There are a lot of mediums out there, so each month we will work to bring a different group of artists working in a variety of mediums to you! When the artist are done crafting their piece—the artwork will be for sale. Visitors of the event can purchase the piece directly from the artist during the event, the gallery will not be taking a commission on the sale.

Visit us on Facebook, for details and updates about June's group of talented local artists!

Guest Curated: FEM: An Art Show

Group show with works by three artists—Deanna Marsigliese, Eliza Ivanova, and Zaruhi Galstyan—who took on the challenge of illustrating the inspirational women of their lives, both past and present. This could mean family members, strangers on the road, cultural muses, and people who somehow resonated with the artist for good or for bad. We wanted to show a side of women in art that wasn't fueled by conventional beauty exclusively, but by their stories. Here we explore the fem perspective.

June 24th through June 26th
Opening Reception Friday, June 24th 6-10pm
All proceeds from live art went directly to Casa De Las Madres, which provides services for those being affected by domestic violence. Come help support art and those in need in our community!

Art Attack SF Presents: Exposed Foundations

A solo exhibition by local artist Dawline-Jane Oni-Eseleh, on display from June 5th through July 5th. Beginning in early childhood, Dawline-Jane developed a fascination with house forms—boxy bases, triangular roofs, rectangles for doors, and four square windows ended up on any blank paper she could find. She imagined what kinds of people lived in the homes. Her kinship with the aesthetic and fantasy rather than technical math strayed her from pursuing architecture.

As an adult, foreboding recurrent dreams of limitless homes and boundless basements that felt both familiar and alien inspired Dawline-Jane to revisit house form in her artwork. While the dreams have since drifted to the ether, her portrayal of house form has established residence at the forefront of her collection.

Evolved Foundations explores the house as object, subject, and form, experimentally investigating the interplay of drawing, photography, and the 3-dimensional object.

Art Attack SF Presents:
Baker's Son: The American Dream

Keith Magruder—also known as the Baker’s Son—graduated from the California College of the Arts in 2008 with a focus on Illustration and currently splits time between his two studios located in Oakland and Los Angeles. Keith developed a strong connection to food at an early age, helping his mother and grandmother bake cakes, pies, and bread in the kitchen. He was able to experience the joy and happiness their baked goods brought to people. Through that experience, Keith realized baking can represent much more than what appears on the surface. In exploring the origins, costs, and transformational properties of ingredients, Keith’s artwork offers an artistic commentary on the socio-political aspects of food and the relationship that people and cultures around the world share with it.

Art Attack SF Presents:
Matthew Robertson: Rooms

"A great deal of my creative energy is focused on developing a visual language that uses both realism and abstraction to describe a subject.  Visually, these images explore the dissonance that arises when realism is paired with the abbreviation and exaggeration of form." Artist Statement, Matthew Robertson

-Opening Reception: First Friday, December 5th 6-9pm


Art Attack SF Presents:
Observations of the Female Form

O.Truax, a local upcoming artist, presents his latest work “Observations of the Female Form” at Art Attack SF, on display November 7 through December 1, 2014. O.Truax fuses repurposed canvas with layers of textured acrylic paint to create works that express the beauty of the female figure both physically and symbolically. The paint is applied using a sharp putty knife, juxtaposing the softness of the overall image, but still perfectly depicting the inherent grace of the female form. Each layer is applied strategically to recreate the beauty of the figure and to reinforce the concepts of female power and strength.
