Evolutionary Bloom

Evolutionary Bloom

November 2022

Evolutionary Bloom is a visual exploration of what is, what was, and what might be in the natural realm. As the global climate shifts, species of flora (and fauna) become extinct, flourish for a time, and emerge/re-emerge. Artists Felicia Ann, Linda Larson and Ursula Xanthe Young capture human and floral species — whether indigenous to Earth or imagined on a distant planet — at the cusp of transformation in this colorful and ethereal exhibition.


Assorted Flavors

Assorted Flavors

October 2022

Assorted Flavors is a collection of food-related paintings depicting otherworldly musings and episodes of illusion with the artist's favorite edibles. Golden wrappers reveal worlds of chocolate confections; gummy fish pass the time on a quiet pier; and teacups burst out from pastry boxes. J.L. King's unique surrealist style emerges and immerses in this, her first solo gallery show.

The City Reawakens

The City Reawakens

August 2022

The City Reawakens features new work by San Francisco painters Beryl Landau and Anthony Holdsworth, who visually chronicle the city as the dark cloud of lockdown is lifted and we reawaken to a changed world. While friends and notable figures have passed, and restaurants and theaters have disappeared, there is also new life emerging. Parklets have created an al fresco dining scene; papel picado decorates 24th and Harrison Streets in the Mission; and everyone is excited to establish a new normal.

For his latest series, Anthony Holdsworth traversed the city, taking his portable studio to the Castro and North Beach — even catching the eye of SF Chronicle’s Native Son, Carl Nolte. Beryl Landau's work for the show offers serene, balanced compositions and signature muted colors, adding another dimension to her symbolic, urban landscapes.


Rise, Sunflowers

Rise, Sunflowers

July 2022

Rise, Sunflowers is a group art exhibition and fundraiser for Ukraine, curated by San Francisco artists D Young V and Mykola Bereza. The show brings together the Bay Area art scene and elements of Ukrainian culture to raise awareness and garner much-needed funds for humanitarian efforts and essential supplies, after the disastrous Russian invasion on February 24, 2022.

The title of the show is a reference to both human empowerment and Ukraine’s national flower (Sonyashnyk). The sunflower was introduced in the country in the mid-18th century and has since become a key component of the Ukrainian economy — its sunflower oil comprises nearly 80% of the global stock. In 1996 the sunflower also became a symbol of global celebration as it was used to mark the nuclear disarmament of Ukraine, which at the time possessed the world’s third largest nuclear arsenal. The sunflower has taken on new meaning as a symbol of solidarity, resistance, unity and hope since the Russian invasion.

The show features 27 local artists exhibiting affordable works of various media, the proceeds from which will be donated to Hearts for Ukraine, a Bay Area-based organization that delivers critical supplies to hospitals, shelters, schools, orphanages, nursing homes, refugee support centers.


Sowing Seeds

Sowing Seeds

June 2022

Sowing Seeds features originals and reproductions of selected works by urban contemporary artist Norm “Nomzee” Maxwell (1969-2016). Created between the years of 2002-2015, these works are among his most colorful and positive, reflecting his growing family, fond memories of his Philadelphia youth and metaphysical aspirations. Despite his passing, his work remains not only relevant but also visionary.

The Norm Maxwell Family Foundation will be releasing three limited edition framed prints on canvas in conjunction with this exhibition, featuring Maxwell’s well-received paintings, Pop's Shop, Oh Snap! and Jumping James. Also on exhibit will be small works for sale, open edition prints on canvas and not-for-sale originals.

Born in Philadelphia PA in 1969, Norm Maxwell was fully susceptible to and influenced by street life, finding his expression in writing graffiti in the 1980s as “Ice”. Mentors and peers encouraged him to pursue an art degree, and his career began in Los Angeles’ Skid Row in the early 1990s alongside urban art legend Doze Green and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Clarence Williams. Maxwell was a prolific artist whose skills and subject matter spanned the extremes of painting. From acrylic spray to oil brush, street life to ancient myth, and urban strife to family life, Maxwell addressed both the evil and beauty of humanity -- a duality that he personally struggled with during his short and magnificent life. He garnered commissions from patrons in Los Angeles, Paris, Seoul, Berlin and Dubai.
