Way Bay

January 17 - June 3, 2018

Venue
UC Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive

Location
Berkeley, California

Emma Michalitschke: Yosemite Landscape, 1913; oil on canvas; 50 x 44 in.; gift of Emma Michalitschke.

We are proud to announce that three artworks by Creativity Explored artists are included in the Way Bay exhibition at the Berkeley Art Museum.

Way Bay is a sweeping exploration of the creative energies that have emerged from the San Francisco Bay Area over the past two centuries. An innovatively organized exhibition of art and film, plus poetry, performance documentation, and archival materials, Way Bay features nearly two hundred works that reveal the depth and diversity of artists’ engagement with the region’s geographic, social, and cultural landscape.

The exhibition takes a nonlinear form and is organized around diverse poetic themes that cut across time periods, media, styles, and artistic cultures, bringing together voices from a wide range of practices and representing diverse communities and sensibilities.

Works by artists and filmmakers such as Bruce Baillie, Lutz Bacher, Joan Brown, Bruce Conner, Jay DeFeo, Enrique Chagoya, Richard Diebenkorn, Ernie Gehr, Saburo Hasegawa, Sargent Johnson, Joanne Leonard, Chiura Obata, Helen Clark Oldfield, Joe Overstreet, Alice Anne Parker Stevenson, Rosie Lee Tompkins, Carlos Villa, and many others are juxtaposed throughout the exhibition.

In contrast to a conventional historical survey, Way Bay is organized to suggest poetic currents and connections among works from disparate cultures and communities, highlighting transhistorical affinities among artists, filmmakers, authors, and other creative practitioners who have contributed to—and drawn inspiration from—the region’s distinctive character.

When visiting the Way Bay exhibition, look for these three works by Creativity Explored artists:

 
Subway Tunnel, 2009 by Lance Rivers; ink watercolor and graphite on mat board, 5 x 7 inches; collection of Leeza Doriean and John Phillips, San Francisco



Untitled, c. 2008 by Mary Belknap; Sharpie marker and felt-tip pen on paper; 25 x 19.5 inches


Untitled (Blue Carrots), 2007 by Evelyn Reyes; oil pastel on paper, 11.25 x 17 inches

Untitled (9 Caballos) by José Nuñez © 2017 Creativity Explored Licensing, LLC, acrylic on paper, 40 x 60 inches

Creativity Explored is proud to present the first solo exhibition of work by José Nuñez.

The artist’s evocative drawings and lush paintings primarily focus on the flora and fauna of his native El Salvador. These diverse images from nature beautifully coexist alongside Nunez’ elegant figures, evoking old-world mysticism and peaceful beauty.

Los evocativos dibujos y lienzos de José estan primeramente enfocados en la flora y fauna de su native tierra, El Salvador. Todas ellas coexisten con las elegantes figuras, que nos llevan a un mundo místico y antiguo, lleno de una belleza sublime.
