“Wasted” solo exhibition by Gabriel Castellanos

Gabriel was born in 1980 and raised in the Bay Area. He has shown work throughout California over the last 9 years, this being his first solo exhibition. Not much for words, he uses art to describe his thoughts about being alive and human with a juxtaposition of bright colors, symbols of death, isolation, a bit of mayhem, fracturing, and secret love. To him, to sensationalize our existence is to undermine our true reality in a way that allows us to no longer fear being alive.

“Art by Code” gives us an insight into a changing cyber universe populated by artists who brave new frontiers with their computational skills, and go beyond the limits of commercial software to create their unique codes that center on ‘interactivity’ and ‘user’ experiences.

With “Art by Code” we aim to ignite the imagination of a new emerging generation and keep challenging the conventional ways of thinking about art and making art. The computer as the medium raises a … Read more ›
FACES & PHASES a solo exhibition by Jesús Zamarrón

“In my work I enjoy expressing spontaneity and randomness with line and color, this gives the paintings a type of freedom and ease that contrasts the deeper voices of the subject matter, the story behind. So at the end my art is about life itself, a struggle between the yin and yang, the laughter and the seriousness of being alive. ”


Zamarrón is a graphic artist whose work has been presented in different media: internet, television, video, print, as well as art galleries. He has exhibited his work both in Spain, the United States and Northern Europe. After he had just arrived to San Francisco in 1995, he was very excited to be invited to participate in the annual show at the prestigious and avant-garde “New Langton Arts” gallery in 1995. This was a breakthrough experience and an eye opener for him and good beginning … Read more ›

Hanna is a Fine Art and Contemporary Portrait and Documentary Photographer who still shoots film.
“The photographs of Hanna Quevedo are completely magnetic.  In equal parts they are intriguing, evocative, emotionally connecting and ultimately thoroughly engaging. Hanna sees the world she inhabits as a keen observer.  Her ability to move through externals to the heart of her subject is strong and direct.  It is through her distinct observations that she uncovers the unusual amidst the ordinary.  Her sensitivity to her surroundings, both physical and personal are evident in the way in which she sees.  Observation and engagement coexist in all of Hanna’s photographs, and all contain compelling visual insights to her subjects.”
Danielle Wohl (Art Advisor)
