Art Exhibit IV Opening Party Photos!

Thank you thank you to everyone who came to the opening party for Art Exhibit IV last night! 

Great turnout for the artists, I was so happy people were able to meet the artists they were interested in and learn more about them. Delicious pizza by Del Popolo. If you haven't seen the truck, its really beautiful, with a  wood fired oven inside, and their pizza is amazing. 

Here are a few photos from the party! 

If you weren't able to make it, remember that the show runs for the next 10 weeks or so and I'd be happy to give you a tour if you'd like to make an appointment with me!

Art Exhibit IV - Removal/Renewal Catalog

Last minute printing of the catalog is happening right now, and while Im waiting, I want to share it! It includes a curatorial statement, artist statements and contact information, artwork information, and price list. 

Also, today is the opening reception of Art Exhibit IV - Removal/Renewal at Ntropic. If you received an invitation, make sure to RSVP so you're checked in faster at the door! 

Art Exhibit IV

The last art exhibit of the year! The next one will mark my 1 year anniversary of curating the San Francisco office of Ntropic. Wow, time flies.  

I chose the date and theme of this show specifically to work around most people's holiday schedule, and to give myself a little time at the beginning of next year to work out the 1 year anniversary/spring exhibit. Since this exhibit starts at the end of fall, and goes through winter, I've decided to make the changing seasons during this time my theme.  

The artwork featured in Art Exhibit IV was chosen to represent various steps in the process of renewal through removal, mirroring some of the natural processes seen in the fall and winter seasons.  Creatures shed their skin, grow thick fur, and go into hibernation. Trees lose their leaves, harden their bark, and set down deep roots. The process of shedding the old, stripping down, and letting go of the past in order to refresh and grow anew in spring. 

Each artist I've chosen represents a different part of the cycle.  Brian Conery and Victoria May’s mixed media and sculptural works represent the removal/stripping down/leaving things behind part of the process.  Heather Day and Yoni Matatyaou's paintings remind us that this leads to new growth, renewal, and the spark of energy that erupts in spring. 

Artists:  Brian Conery - Heather Day - Victoria May - Yoni Matatyaou

As usual the opening reception is guest list only, if you're interested in viewing the exhibition at a later time, I'd be happy to schedule an appointment to give you a tour!
