“Our Summer of Love and Resistance”
July 8 to August 31, 2017
Group Show of Twelve Artists
Avenue 12 Gallery presents Our Summer of Our Love and Resistance, a group exhibition of Bay Area artists on view July 8 to August 26, with a reception Saturday July 15. As part of San Francisco’s 50th year commemoration of the Summer of Love, Avenue 12 Gallery is proud to provide a place where Bay Area artists can connect with the community by showing their work in response to the current political environment. As was true of the 60’s, it is our belief that now is the time for art to provide an emotional release, the energy to move dialogue forward, and provide a sense of meaning to hope and struggle. Original artwork in a variety of mediums, as well as fine art prints, will be available.
Upcoming Show Opening September 18, 2017
“I live and work in San Francisco, California with my wife and son. I paint and sculpt. Occasionally I illustrate books, posters and articles in magazines. I also paint murals.
I think mystery and the unknown are undervalued and also inspiring. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in nature and it’s also where I find inspiration which I then, express through my art.”
