Member News: Corinne Whitaker

Corinne Whitaker is having a solo exhibition, a high-tech virtual surround show of her ground-breaking digital imaging with the HMVC Gallery New York, that is online from November 7 to December 7, 2022. Critically reviewed as "The pieces on display feel like art from a mind released from the limits of the physical world – as if the electricity between the folds of the brain has been captured within a frame. They are psychedelic, layered, chaotic and digital." For more information: https://www.hmvcgallery.com/artplacer/?mc_cid=9fb2dc68ef&mc_eid=aa84115378

    Member News: Kristin Lindseth

    Kristin Lindseth is exhibiting her mixed media sculptures titled San Ardo, consisting of a community of small homes and community buildings including a cafe, general store, clinic, library, and theater, all meant to evoke a place where people gather to rebuild.  About the work, Kristin says “Architecture is the mark that we humans collectively leave on the earth, and our homes define us as individuals. What we collect and fill our homes with, the style of architecture, the location where we build; all these things speak of our individual loves and needs. The exhibition is on view at the Olive Hyde Art Center, 123 Washington St., Fremont, CA, from Nov. 10 – Dec. 17. 2022.  Gallery hours are Thurs. – Sun., 12-5pm.
