“The Charming Apocalypse”, two antagonistic concepts used as an inspiration to create beautiful, shiny and colorful paintings with dark meaning.
This exhibition is a reflection of the reality we live, an expression of some of the problems that our society is facing these days: climate change, contamination… etc.
Javi uses his charming characters and cartoon backgrounds to explain an ugly reality.

Moonage Daydream is an art show tribute to the many faces and phases of David Bowie. It includes work by over 20 Bay Area artists, working in a variety of styles and media. This show seeks to grapple with the life (and recent death) of the legendary recording artist, as well as the sci-fi, pop culture, and radical identity themes present throughout his oeuvre. This show will also feature a special musical performance by Lady Stardust, the California-based (almost) all-female David Bowie cover band.

My #Selfie, Myself: Disseminating the self-portrait one click at a time.

Group show of emerging bay area artists utilizing themselves as the subject of their work. Through painting, print and photography they will examine the current idea of ‘self’.

This show attempts to connect the introspective view of the artist’s intrinsic self.  Within the social construct of portraiture the gallery will be accompanied with an installation of selfies that viewers are encouraged to participate in. Through image and identity this show is set to explore the connection between the “selfie” within the context of traditional use of self-portraiture.

“There’s no sensation to compare with this…” 
Learning To Fly… Soul Flight
Painting and drawing Installation by, artist, Danielle DeRoberts
———>>><><<<———
This series is a collection of self portraits inspired by the artists internal and external journey. Danielle has been painting portraits of others since her career started, and now challenges herself to face the audience and paint herself. She uses flight as a metaphor for soul exploration, breaking patterns and committing to self love, space and awareness.  Taking inspiration from Pink Floyd and their lyrics from the song “ Learning To Fly,” Danielle guides us through her personal challenges by painting literally from the lyrics created, verse by verse. The fear and excitement of flying translates into the impermanence of sensations- both good and bad within our soul journey: “ soul flight”. Staying true to the moment, the artists intention is to inspire awareness by working on the darkness that guides her … Read more ›

Project Abstract.

Situated at the edge of San Francisco overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Lands End is a 2.9 mile coastal trail leading from the famous Sutro Baths and Cliff House. The trail has many unofficial paths that run through the hills and to the cliffs. Many people visit Lands End, yet only some slow down enough to listen, observe, and appreciate the beauty around them.

It was 1997 when I immigrated to United States.  I visited Ocean Beach with my mother the first week I was here.  She said, “If you ever miss me or your father, just remember we are all connected by the ocean here.”  Since I often felt alone due to the language barrier, I would walk quietly along the beach observing my surroundings.  I stumbled upon Lands End Trail, and the place instantly mesmerized me.  It transported me from the crowded city to an enchanted land straight out … Read more ›
