On Wednesday, January 29 5:30 - 7:30pm you are invited to join the artists for the opening of SERENITY:CONTEMPLATION SPACE at the UCSF Women's Health Center in San Francisco. UCSF Women's Health will be providing wine and light hors d'oeuvres for your enjoyment and all works from the show will be available for purchase.
Each of the artists selected for this exhibit were chosen by curator Matt McKinley based on their unique perspective and artistic presentation of thoughtful, restful or contemplative space. Linda Adreveno, exhibiting on floor 7, creates process-oriented texturally rich work involving many, many layers of paper and paint applied without brushes! On floor 6, Peruvian artist Talavera Ballon references the simple life of a fishing village from his home country to take viewers on a coastal getaway. Through portals and through people floor 5 artist Elizabeth Fracchia uses oil paint, human expression, and color her guides. Still retaining slight traces of reality, Linda Fong’s abstract paintings on floor 4 are meant to expand reality, not contradict it. “When we open our minds and use our imaginations, the world is infinite,” Linda shares. Diane Devine is inspired by past travels, her beautiful garden and her collections of precious things. Her resulting still lifes, executed in watercolors and showing on floor 3, are proof that for some people the ideal place to find serenity is right at home!
