December 1, 2012 to January 6, 2013 at ArtZone 461 Gallery
Partners Sale and Gallery Artists Holiday Group Show
ArtZone 461 Gallery celebrates all Holidays and New Years with two notable offerings: In the Main Gallery ArtZone 461 announces a new show that may be its most diverse since opening on Valencia Street over four years ago. The smaller Side Gallery features a group show by various Gallery Artists.
The artists in this Main Gallery show range from contemporary, abstract, minimalist/color field painters such as Anne Appleby, to figurative works from James Weeks in the 1950s and to Kevin Bean’s 2001 backyard paintings.
Works offered in this exhibition represent selections from the personal collections of ArtZone 461 Gallery partners Eric Koehler and Steven Lopez. Apart from existing Gallery artists, this show includes pieces by Leo Bersamina, Kevin Bean, Christopher Brown, Rigo 99, Katherine Sherwood, James Weeks and William Wolff. From outside the Bay Area, some of the artists are Jeremy Dickinson (from the UK); Susan Guiseppi, who graduated from the NY School of Visual arts in the early to mid 1970s to Dan Reneau who graduated from the California College of the Arts in 2006 and currently teaches in Kansas City and finally, Vonn Sumner, as a representative of artists formerly shown with our heritage location, The Charles Campbell Gallery.
Such a diverse selection causes the viewer to ask what is the focus or the thread that weaves these images together? The answer may be less subjective than one would suspect: Lopez remarks that the glue that holds the collection together is “Paint”. In his terms described as having an inherent fluid dynamic, one that is the product of oil painting. These pieces are living objects, with the potential for dynamic interaction or appreciation over long periods of time.
Most pieces in the show have been in the collection or possession of Gallery Partners for a long time and they are now pleased to share this collection with a wider audience. Many of the works will be available for sale, some offered to the public for the first time.
The Side Gallery features both new and familiar works from Gallery Artists: R. Beckelheimer; N. Coley; D. Erickson; H. McDowell; G. Opdenbrouw; R. Reynolds, S. Washburn; J. Yi and more.
Opening Reception Saturday December 1, 5-8 pm
