Parts & Labor
October 25, 2014 - December 1, 2014
Parts & Labor emphasizes the working process of art-making – similar to a mechanic, an artist combines craft and skill with the use of materials to create a desired product. The finished piece is a marvel on its own, yet many hours were invested in the building of it. The three artists participating in Parts & Labor make their living in both the commercial and fine art realms.

Cosmic Dust is David Choong Lee’s first collection of wholly abstract paintings, a significant departure from decades of including oil portraiture in his body of work.
Having just sold hundreds of his recent and past pieces to the Grand Hyatt SF in Union Square as part of the two two-story assemblages now gracing its lobby, Lee ventures into a new style of painting that incorporates his numerous skills in a non-representational manner.
Reflection / Refraction
August 23, 2014 - September 12, 2014
This collection of seven works, created specifically for the front room of Luna Rienne Gallery, studies the hues in the sky that are generated by the refraction and dispersion of the sun's light by water in the atmosphere, also known as a rainbow.

A group show of New York artists curated by Evan Venegas, including NY-raised, SF-based Gianluca Franzese alongside Venegas, gilf!, John Breiner, Lori Nelson, Millie Benson, and Peter Daverington.
Distortion examines the concept that all imagery is distorted because it is filtered through a person's psyche. Interpretations of these images are manufactured by not only what's presently in front of you, but also past experiences and future desires.
All of the artists in Distortion reveal this process in their work. Ideas, socialization, nature, and technology are the subjects they address. However they each recognize, embrace, and render the individuality of their experience.
Against The Grain
June 21, 2014 - July 28, 2014
Against The Grain is a collection of paintings on wood, wherein Young explores new techniques, patterns, and a more natural palette with an array of different mediums, including graphite, ink, latex, wood stain, acrylic, spray paint, etc.
Fresh off the heels of a 4 ft. x 18 ft. commission for the Grand Hyatt SF in Union Square and a large mural in Miami FL painted during Art Basel, Young’s latest body of work ties together some familiar themes – alluring women, the urban landscape of San Francisco, and her continued study of nature -- against an added layer of minimal forms, patterns, and lines in neutral hues on wood.

For the first time ever, Luna Rienne Gallery will simultaneously launch a parklet and solo show, featuring artist Brian Barneclo, on Saturday, May 3.
Titled "Misinformation", the exhibition and parklet reflect on the overwhelming amount of information that we are constantly fed -- social media, blogs, emails, texts, human interaction, sound, and even the food we eat. Misinformation occurs in the lapse between being "connected" and not necessarily being in touch with what’s really going on.
With the parklet, which is the third installation at Luna Rienne Gallery’s revolving public art venue, Barneclo focuses on the giving and receiving of information. It will feature a combination of layered wood, acrylic cut-outs, and murals.
March 22, 2014 - April 28, 2014
A solo gallery exhibition by long-time San Francisco resident and Renaissance man Romanowski. REC features a new collection of assemblage work by the Swiss-born artist, who uses recycled and reclaimed materials to create stylistic wood-finish dioramas that reference music, politics, and culture. Romanowski’s assemblages have evolved to a keen craft over the years, and are featured in Bay Area restaurants such as Nectar and the Tribune Tavern.
REC focuses on his wood assemblages, but Romanowski’s numerous talents as a stencil artist, music producer, DJ, and stylish man-about-town will be showcased as well, with auxiliary work also on display at the gallery.

Polyptych Tales, featuring new works by Ursula X Young, Joshua Lawyer, and MJ Lindo, reinterprets the classical idea of the frieze into a chronological puzzle of paintings. While each piece stands alone as an individual work, together the polyptych tells one story with parts flowing among them and recurring themes that bind.
October 19, 2013 - November 18, 2013
Ambition, a collection of paintings created by Monty Guy over the last year, addresses aspiration and potential. Conveyed through gray-scale portraiture, the narrative is told in each character’s facial expression and skin art.
The pieces are based on existing photos, re-interpreted by the artist. From the steely focus look of Lady Liberty to the young boys channeling East Bay hip hop, Ernest Hemingway, and Michelangelo, Monty’s paintings give new meaning to the definition of ambition.
