Currently Showing:
Malcolm Fooks: THEN < > NOW
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.

Coming Up:
Octavio Valdez: Breakfast
Friday October 12th, 6-9 pm
Join us for the opening reception of Breakfast, a new series of acrylic paintings on board. Octavio Valdez came to the U.S. as a native of Mexico City in 2000. He studied art in Guanajuato where he worked as an artist. Since coming to the United States, he has been a part of several artists’ communities while continuing his explorations into various media forms, particularly digital media and sequential art.
