Summer is here, and our shops are heating up with hot new artworks on the gallery walls! From gorgeous, lush, colorful watercolor paintings in Oakland, to Brutalist-esque constructed assemblages rendered in rich earthy hues in Los Feliz, to gleaming gold leaf drawings full of bright reflections in the Echo Park shop. Pop into our three locations to view these awesome artworks through the end of July!
In Oakland: HADASS GERSON // NEW WORK
Hadass creates watercolor masterpieces that marry traditional motifs with contemporary aesthetic sensibilities. She received an MFA in Painting and an MA in Contemporary Art History from SFAI. Her work has been exhibited at the Diego Rivera Gallery, TreeHouse Gallery, SOMArts Center, Market Street Gallery and the Dimmock Gallery. Hadass is also the founder of TreeHouse Gallery in San Francisco, an art gallery devoted to cross cultural communications through the arts and connecting new art collectors with early market emerging artists.
In Los Feliz: PATRICK PICARD // ASSEMBLAGES
Our Los Feliz gallery hosts new work by Los Angeles-based filmmaker and painter Patrick Picard. These sculptural new pieces mark a departure for Picard, emerging from the 2D constraints of the painted canvas towards a constructed 3D landscape, evocative of Brutalist architecture and elements of Constructivist design. When creating this series, Picard was inspired by the unassuming materiality of scrap MDF, Neutrogena soap bars, and the Gonzalo Fonseca- designed concrete playgrounds of his youth.
In Echo Park: SKYE SCHUCHMAN // ALL THAT GLITTERS
Skye Schuchman is an artist, designer, and cyclist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. The ink and gold leaf drawings in this series are about order, through the use of grid and pattern, and light. From Skye: “I?m fascinated with reflection and love creating surfaces that catch and release light. With the changing light of the day to the reflections created by passers-by, each piece is a dynamic, glittering, mirror to the world around it.”
