Currently Showing:
Patty St. Louis: Portraits From the Landscape
Our current show features paintings that explore the subject of balanced rocks in a way that is original, graceful, and thought provoking. St. Louis reveals the myriad dualities that coexist in a single image, making us aware of the tension and gravity within them.

Coming Up:
Malcolm Fooks: THEN < > NOW
Friday September 14th, 6-9 pm

Alameda teen Malcolm Fooks has been drawing since he was little. In this show, he revisits drawings that his mom kept over the years and recreates the essence of them using his current skills with graphite. Each simple, 2D drawing from his past has been transformed into a hyperreal masterpiece, showing significant artistic growth along the way. From simple portraits to planes and suits of armor, Fooks’ imagination and incredible detail make it a fun journey from Then to Now.
