Wild in the Streets @ Moth Belly Gallery

4/4 – 4/27/24

Purchase work from the show here!

“Wild In The Streets” is a duo exhibition of two Bay Area artists we’ve long felt were destined to be in a show together. Featuring the off-the-wall, hyper detailed collages and papier-mâché sculptures of Andrea Bergen, and the anthropomorphic (and often surreal) animals of John Casey—these joined bodies of work come together to envision a world where people are all but gone and the animals have taken back over and assumed human roles. Falling somewhere between a rumination on the environmental impact of consumer culture, and a celebratory spree of nature’s reclamation, this show reaches a degree of full-on mayhem that won’t soon be forgotten.

Radiant Souls at NIAD

2/2/24 – 3/22/24

NIAD Art Center presents “Radiant Souls”, an exhibition organized by Fernanda Martinez. Featuring works by Saul Alegria, Sebastian Alvarez, Julio Del Rio, Ann Meade, Dorian Reid, Carlota Rodriguez, Joseph Rux, Peter Harris, Sylvia Fragoso, Shawna Kinard, Christian Vassell, Felicia Griffin, Eric Bohr, John Casey, Meghan Shimek, and Amber Jean Young.

Our memories are constituted by faces, feelings, colors, shapes, and sounds. The way we create our own reality has deep roots in what we perceive from the outside universe and what stays with us after our senses process all this information. All the interpretations that we make serve us as a way of being in the world.

Radiant Souls Is an invitation to reflect on all the evoking and mysterious symbols that get suspended in our memories, making the familiar objects an incitement to explore beyond our desires and look deeper into our reality.

We are all contributors in the process of creation; our thoughts, feelings and unconscious beliefs have an energy that is present in the work. These unseen forces provide the opportunity to see more of the familiar and question our reality so we can embrace new ways of understanding ourselves and the world.

111 Minna Gallery is pleased to present their latest project, ‘POOLSIDE’ featuring the works of over 60 prolific Bay Area artists.

‘Poolside’ will be a summertime/fun time full gallery extension of our widely popular ‘Sketch Tuesday’ event. ’Sketch Tuesday’ is a live drawing event where artists create work on an affordable smaller scale for the public to appreciate and purchase. ‘Poolside’ will be a full exhibition of already finished works featuring many of our regular ‘Sketch Tuesday’ participants and 111 Minna Gallery artists featuring nearly two hundred pieces created on a smaller scale (Sketch Tuesday size) that will be affordable to the public.

Just as our ‘Sketch Tuesday’ events feature professional artists of all media and career levels mixed with artists pursuing different professional trades (but still avid artists). ‘Poolside’ will also provide the same community based atmosphere for all to enjoy!
