Main Gallery Exhibition Schedule

Lance-scape Architecture
January 12 – March 9, 2017
Guest Curator: Colter Jacobsen

Lance Rivers' expansive first solo show at Creativity Explored sheds light upon his prolific career as an artist living in San Francisco. Rivers' art explores the wonder of life amongst monumental forms: bridges, buildings, tunnels and other icons of human industry. He offers a personal vision of familiar structures, imbued with loving attention to detail and endowed with an uncanny spatial presence.

Colter Jacobsen is an artist that lives and works in the Bay Area. He is represented by Gallery Anglim Gilbert in SF and Corvi-Mora in London and has exhibited at SFMOMA, the Istanbul Biennial, and the Baltic Triennial. Colter has worked as a care-giver and at the Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually-Impaired as an art instructor.  He's been a long time admirer of Lance River's work and curated Lance's first solo exhibition for the 2014 "People's Biennial" at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. He is a passionate advocate for Creativity Explored artists and is a vital contributor to the Bay Area arts community.

FULL STOP!
March 16 – May 4, 2017
Curated by Amanda Eicher and Hannah Lilly

Full Stop Ahead is an exploration of the ways three artists use mark-making to experiment, communicate vision, and collaborate. All three artists: Hung Kei Shiu, Corine Raper, and Claus Groeger are, for the most part, non verbal, and use mark-making as a mode of expression. Each artist brings their own unique mark making style, from a Morse code aesthetic to emotionally-gestural contours, to straight-edged marks. This exhibition brings together a unique group of artists celebrating the possibility of line.
