Peak Salvation
Art Thou Gallery, Berkeley, CA
October 2nd - November 25th, 2015

Art Thou Gallery & the Sierra Club proudly present Peak Salvation, a group show featuring Bay Area artists working in the theme of nature and conservation. Peak Salvation brings together paintings, photography, and cut paper collage from artists Tom Taylor, Fig.6, and Berkeley landscape painter Peter Canty.

Tom Taylor started his artistic career painting cityscapes and portraits, until a transformative experience living on a tungsten mine in Hope Valley. The peace and tranquility of this remote environment in the Sierras inspired him to work more with landscapes and to create work that could bring his love of nature indoors.

Fig.6 is the alias of emerging photographer and collage artist Chrysta Giffen. Her photographs of nature radiate serenity with their classical compositions and formal framing. In conjunction with her photographs, Giffen's use of recycled materials in her cut paper collage merges a contemporary design sense with an integrated environmental approach.

Peter Canty's rich oil paintings of mountains, oceans, and trees root the viewer to the Bay Area's natural landscape and gives reference to a historical sense of place. Residing in North Berkeley, Canty celebrates naturalism as the ideal in this exhibition.

Peak Salvation references both the segmented and natural landscape of the Bay Area which serve as the creative fuel for the artists presented in this exhibition. Open October 2nd - November 25th, 2015

10% of all gallery sales through November 13th will be donated to the Sierra Club.
