THE WILD SIDE: CALIFORNIA WOMEN CELEBRATE THE UNTAMED

Elizabeth Addison, Curator & Cynthia Brannvall, Juror

Arc Studios and Gallery

You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.

HERE.

We all have a wild side, whether we stride boldly there or keep it under the radar. Women, traditionally, have been taught to keep their “wildness” under wraps – raucous, adventurous, risk-taking, bold & brave, sometimes licentious, or living outside traditional moral codes. For THE WILD SIDE, California women artists evoke drama, awe, and strong emotions with works that excite visually… and celebrate the untamed! 

 

April 1-May 3, 2022

SHIMMER

Abrams Claghorn Gallery, Curated Invitational Exhibition

Laney College’s June Steingart Art Gallery, Regional Juried Exhibition

Curators: Elizabeth Addison & Robert Abrams

Perched at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, the West Coast is extremely dynamic and complex. We experience water in its absence, fury, and spiritual significance – from crashing waves and rushing rapids to gurgling flows and gentle splashes. 63 West Coast artists have taken a dive into the deep for Shimmer with works in a wide range of media that inform, inspire, and refresh.
