Drawings, Cyanotypes, and Works on Paper 
by Barbara Bryn Klare

February 10–March 4, 2017
Reception: February 10 • 5–8pm

In November 2016, I was artist-in-residence at the Icelandic Textile Centre in Blönduós, Iceland. Blönduós is a small town in northwestern Iceland where the glacial river Blanda meets the Arctic Sea. The pieces in this show were inspired by my time there and in Akureryi, where I stayed in a weaving studio.

The show includes indigo-dipped landscapes, cyanotypes of wool roving and ram’s horns, textile drawings,  sketches, and ink drawings inspired by the water, snow, light, and mountains of northern Iceland. www.barbarabrynklare.com

The Near Future Ago

January 13-February 4, 2017
Reception: January 13 • 5–8pm

The Near Future Ago is labor of love by curator, manager, and artist Kip Westerfield. His exhibition-happening format came out of a need for places to exhibit emerging artists. He states “because I've had some experience throwing shows and organizing groups, I chose to start a loose knit group of artists who wanted to show with each other, mostly students, skateboarders, musicians, etc from my life and friends. The connections spread pretty quick once folks found out I was motivated to do the work of keeping it all going. There have been over 80 different artists in our shows and we are growing with each event.”

Westerfield works at Smith Andersen North gallery and frame shop, where he convinced the owner to let him have the first show for a one-night only event. That one-night event brought 34 artists and about 150 guests. After a second successful show at the gallery, other places got wind of it and requested The Near Future Ago in their space for repeated events. Other venues include The West End Bar, Bedrock Records, ProofLab skateshop, and ANDTHEM gallery in San Rafael. This exhibition at Art Works Downtown will be the 14th event featuring an exciting variety of artists who have participated in every exhibition as well as artists who are new to the scene.

A Journey of Imagination

paintings by Louise Finn Gould

November 11-December 3, 2016
Reception: November 11 • 5–8pm

Louise Finn Gould states: "In my work I seek a balance between the real and the imaginary. I am inspired by the beauty and majesty of nature. I am intrigued by my dreams at night. I am in awe of the ever changing sky and how clouds shift and change. I am touched by family photographs, both my own and others, often capturing subtle connections and emotions. I am committed to the journey of creative exploration. I believe that each person has a unique voice and expression that is there for their discovery if they so choose. It is my hope that my own personal expression of creativity will spark in others a feeling or memory."

Emerald Forest

an installation by Stephanie Jucker

October 14-November 5, 2016
Reception:October 14 • 5–8pm

Emerald Forest in an installation inspired by Stephanie Jucker's father, whose extreme passion for nature and art was only matched by his intense addiction to alcohol.

His favourite drink came in a green bottle and this has coloured her memories of him. The gin bottle glinting green like an emerald, glowing green like poison.

Below are some of the works that will be in the exhibit. For more information and prices contact me directly.

This show is an emotional journey through memories from the past and present, from darkness through light. Every character tells a story, a hidden secret that must be discovered.

Marnago was born in California, but grew up in Latin America and Europe. In addition to his degree in history, Marnago is a creative spirit and an autodidactic, artist, writer, and poet.

This show illustrates the many ways Lucille created her work for over 25 years. She was influenced by the three main places she lived and worked—Bay Area,Tassajara Zen Center, and Kauai, Hawaii.

Lucille created her work from 1959 to 1984. She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and San Francisco State University. She was very active in the San Francisco arts community. Her work was shown at the Palace of the Legion of Honor, the Art Institute, and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco; the Oakland Museum of California; the Richmond Art Center; and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. In Hawaii, her work was shown at The Garden Island Art Center and the State Building in Kauai, and The Honolulu Academy of Arts.

In addition to this she had work in many galleries and many private collections.

Doubling Up: Painterly Prints & Printerly Paintings

Liz Schiff and Mimi Makowsky

April 8–30, 2016
Reception: April 8 • 5–8pm

Liz Schiff and Mimi Makowsky are long-time watercolor artists who also share a passion for monoprints. In this exhibit, both artists showcase recent works that juxtapose monoprinting with painting, marrying the unique textures of printmaking with the transparent characteristics of watercolor.

Works by Liz Schiff feature her "By the Wind Sailor" and "By the Fly" series. The "By the Wind" series was inspired by jellyfish known as By-the-Wind Sailors that periodically wash up on Northern California shores. Liz makes impressions with the dried "sailors" and other material, and then paints back into these monoprints to create unique underwater-like imagery. Also included in the show are pieces from Liz's "By the Fly" series where she uses primarily butterfly and leaf imagery to create small flights of fancy.

Working in watercolor enhanced with both monotype and transfers, Mimi Makowsky explores a sense of place and renewal. She uses recurring themes of light and vegetation to express her enthusiasm for a new phase of life.

The 138 Houses We Lived In When We Were 10, Drawn From Memory Alone

An installation by Lara Myers

March 11–April 2, 2016
Opening Reception: March 11 • 5–8pm
Drawing Collection Receptions: March 12, 19, 26 + April 2 • 1–4pm

The 138 Houses We Lived In When We Were 10, Drawn From Memory Alone is a show about our visual and anecdotal memory of our childhood homes.

Since 2013, I have interviewed 138 people about the house they lived in when they were 10 years old. 

I had each person draw their childhood home from memory alone without looking at any photos or contacting family for information.  If they could not remember a detail of the house, say, where the windows were or the type of roof the house had, it was left out of the drawing.  The focus is on the visual memory of these houses as opposed to an accurate representation of the houses.  I then recorded each person telling a story about their house.
