Nature Justice!

March 1-28, 2018

Venue
Creativity Explored Studio

Location
San Francisco, CA

Curator and artist Yukari Sakura with a selection of works included in Nature Justice!

In concert with Tabula Rasa III, in which the gallery is devoted to studio activities for three weeks, we asked artist Yukari Sakura to curate a mini-exhibition in the CE studio for the same period of time.

Sakura reviewed her long list of "at-risk" animals and cross-referenced it with artworks produced by several fellow CE artists to create Nature Justice!, an installation that addresses environmental degradation, climate change, and endangered species. Sakura also painted the names of at-risk animals, flora, and fauna directly on the wall in popular protest fashion.

Artists include Lucinda Addison, Monica Barrera, Peter DeLira, Jesus Huezo, Lien Nguyen, Yukari Sakura, Rory White, Richard Wright, and Ann Yamasaki.

 

48 Pillars

February 24 - April 14, 2018

Venue
Arc Gallery

Location
San Francisco, CA


Arc Gallery presents the second installation of 48 Pillars featuring new artwork by Vincent Jackson.

48 Pillars was inspired by a chance encounter at Flax Art and Design with a close-out sale of deep vertical panels, 48 x 12 x 1 5/8 inches. Twenty-four local Bay Area artists will produce two pieces each on these identically sized panels that will exactly ring the gallery, with 48 works total.
 
This is the second exhibition at Arc Gallery that is essentially a “structural constraint” show. Artists are unconstrained in subject matter except to the extent that works need to be a series; but they are constrained in format.

Featured artists include: Carlos Cartagena, Paula Dupois Dupuis, Holly Downing, Georgianne Fastaio, Rebecca Fox, Laura Hapka, Patter Hellstrom, Ester Hernandez, Howard Hersh, Isis Tatiana Hockenos, Vincent Jackson, Ivy Jacobsen, Carole Jeung, Kevin Keul, Joseph Kowalczyk, Katja Leibenath, Paul Morin, Stephen Namara, Hadley Radt, Lucky Rapp, Fernando Reyes, Ari Salomon, Cindy Shih, & Ursula X. Young

Curated by Arc Gallery owner Michael Yochum.

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.

Curated by Pilar Olabarria
