In Focus: Current Photography
Juried Exhibition
January 16 – March 8, 2018

STATEMENT

What the photographer sees, what the lens captures, and how today’s culture frames the image, these are the elements to be examined in the current juried exhibition, In Focus: Current Photography.

We look to California photographers for a view of current directions in the studio and in the streets. Subjects that draw the hearts and minds, locations that echo the spirit, and matters that demand attention – these all fuel photography.

Juror: Judy Dater

Acclaimed photographer Judy Dater has been the subject of international exhibitions and the recipient of numerous awards. Known for her sensitive portraits and exploring the self-portrait, Dater has established an intensely beautiful canon of nudes and haunting portrayals of the female form. Dater’s photographs will be featured in a major exhibition titled Only Human at the de Young Museum in San Francisco this coming spring.

The 2nd Annual Bay Area Mural Festival will use the mural arts to engage East Bay youth, local Bay Area artists and the Richmond community through beautification and placemaking activities. The festival will produce 8 professional murals and 2 youth designed murals to call attention to issues of environmental degradation, pollution and climate change. The project will engage 10 local California mural artists, 8 working on their own projects and 2 as teaching artists. The teaching artists will work with local youth in Richmond in hands-on arts training activities leading to the preparation and execution of the mural festival.

“BAMFest 2017 provides employment to California muralists as well as arts training opportunities and workshops for local youth that are often battling poverty and youth joblessness. Plus, it promotes cultural diversity and opportunities to foster more community engagement in the Bay Area,” said Sarah Siskin, BAMFest’s project coordinator and a member of Bay Area mural collective Los Pobres Artistas.

“We are excited to be partnering with the Richmond Arts Center and other local organizations to have as much of a positive impact as possible for the Richmond community, as well as participating youth, artists and local businesses,” she added.

La Peña Cultural center’s Co-Directors Natalia Neira and Bianca Torres issued a joint statement: “The Bay Area Mural Festival is an extension of La Peña’s mission to create peace and social justice through accessible cultural arts, education and community action. BAMFest 2017 is an opportunity to creatively respond to a global environmental crisis with very real local effects to the air we breathe and the water we drink.”

The California Arts Council awarded $36,900 to La Peña Cultural Center to fund the 2nd annual Bay Area Mural Festival (BAMFest 2017) as part of its Creative California Communities program.

“The transformative nature of the Creative California Communities program is so powerful. It’s thrilling to see grantees use the arts and creative expression to reinvigorate spaces, and by extension, area residents and visitors,” said California Arts Council Chair Donn K. Harris. “The potential a creative placemaking project like BAMFEST 2017 has to inspire and rejuvenate a community is truly immeasurable.”

The mission of the California Arts Council, a state agency, is to advance California through the arts and creativity. The Council is committed to building public will and resources for the arts; fostering accessible arts initiatives that reflect contributions from all of California’s diverse populations; serving as a thought leader and champion for the arts; and providing effective and relevant programs and services.

Last year the California Arts Council awarded La Peña funds to create the first Bay Area Mural Festival, which created 13 new murals in the Berkeley-Oakland border. Visit the BAMFEST website to see a map of the new murals, pictures, artist bios and more: http://bamfest.org/

Fall Exhibitions at the Richmond Art Center

Fall Exhibitions at the Richmond Art Center

Three new exhibitions featuring works by Bay Area figurative artist Joan Brown, an environmentally themed group show, and a celebration of Richmond’s acclaimed Pogo Park will open to the public on September 12, 2017.

RICHMOND, CA — August 10, 2017 — The Richmond Art Center is celebrating the personal art of a Bay Area icon, and delves into studies of the environment both globally and locally this fall with three new exhibitions, opening September 12.  Joan Brown: In Living Color reveals the intimate and personal in the renderings of an influential Bay Area artist who never stopped drawing. Many of the works on exhibit come from the artist’s estate and have never been shown publicly. This is the first Bay Area exhibition that focuses on Brown’s works on paper in over 20 years.

Says Director of Exhibitions Jan Wurm, “At a time when the art world was heavily focused on abstraction and formalism, Joan Brown was unique in the exploration of the personal, the domestic, and the human relationship to nature.” Wurm adds, “The core of Joan Brown’s life and experiences became the subject of her art. Brown’s quest for a visual rendering of the experiences of an evolving life was a beacon particularly for women artists and became a model for generations of artists exploring identity and place.”

Earth, Wind, and Fire showcases nine contemporary artists — Kim Anno, Chester Arnold, Harry Clewans, Paul Kos, Jenny Odell, Clifford Rainey, Abel Rodriguez, Alison Saar, Joshua Solis. Working through intimate personal works, video, and large scale installation, these artists focus on issues of self, identity, place, and relationship to nature and the environment.

“In a time of great concern for our environment, the artists who are engaged by issues and questions of habitat, ecology, and personal practice move across many platforms to create a visual dialogue,” adds Wurm. “We are proud to enable that dialogue and foster a forum for expanded possibilities.”

The exhibition Pogo Park: A New Model for Community Transformation, presented in conjunction with Pogo Park’s 10th Anniversary, showcases the vision, concept and process of the project, coupled with models, stories, and voices of the people involved in transforming little-used Richmond city park into a safe and vibrant place that sparks children’s imagination and initiative. Says Ric Ambrose, Executive Director of the Richmond Art Center, “Pogo Park is about much more than playgrounds. Its unique approach combines two distinct but interrelated strategies: child development and community development.”

The Richmond Art Center will present several talks and events over the course of the Fall exhibition schedule. For those interested in Joan Brown: In Living Color, a panel of former students and artists will share lively recollections of those who knew and worked with Brown in Picturing a Life, on Saturday, September 23 at 2 pm. Printing Joan Brown, a presentation given by Don Farnsworth of Magnolia Editions on Saturday, October 21 at 2 pm, will examine the process of working with Joan Brown on Golden Gate.

On Saturday, October 14 at 2 pm, Picturing the Environment will feature artists exhibiting in the exhibition Earth Wind, and Fire, discussing working with identity and personal commitment to the environment.

The Opening Reception for the Fall exhibitions will take place on Saturday, September 9, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. This event is free and all are welcome.

For more information about the Fall exhibitions, programming, and other events, please visit the Richmond Art Center’s website: http://richmondartcenter.org. All events and exhibitions are free and open to the public.

John Zarobell and Seeing Power through the Map

Our Spring Exhibition, Mapping the Uncharted, was recently the subject of an essay by Bay Area curator and professor John Zarobell. Excerpted from his essay, “Seeing Power Through the Map,” in this month’s edition of Art Practical:

The impulse of showing the state of the world through visual means is what maps accomplish even as the world we inhabit becomes ever-more virtual, and the tentacles of power increasingly opaque. Once a document of conquest, the map recreates the spaces that the mind traverses and occupies, creating networks for later exploration. As a means of representation, maps are reimagined and critiqued by artists in these two exhibitions and the underlying authority of maps is renegotiated. Viewers must make sense of each of these artistic maps and, in so doing, find their way in the world. Everyone is subject to power, but these maps help one to see through it.

You can read the entire essay here.

John Zarobell is Assistant Professor and Undergraduate Director of International Studies at the University of San Francisco. Formerly, he held the positions of assistant curator at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and associate curator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He is a regular contributor to the San Francisco Art Quarterly (SFAQ) and the online journal Art Practical, has written for numerous exhibition catalogues and has published in Art History, Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide, and the Berkeley Review of Latin-American Studies. His first book, Empire of Landscape, was published in 2010 and his next, Art and the Global Economy, will be published by University of California Press in April 2017.

The Boundaries of Sculpture and the Alternate Meanings of Maps at the Richmond Art Center

The Boundaries of Sculpture and the Alternate Meanings of Maps at the Richmond Art Center
Two new exhibitions, Marking Space and Mapping the Uncharted, bring new meaning to the traditional arts of sculpture and mapping this Spring.

RICHMOND, CA — February 22, 2017 — In the new Spring sculpture exhibition Marking Space, opening on March 21, seven artists examine the nature of material and expose structure in a myriad of forms. Bay Area artists Mari Andrews, Robert Brady, Genevieve Hastings, Jann Nunn, Gay Outlaw, Lucy Puls, and Tracey Snelling use diverse materials to mirror habitat and architecture, to reflect on social structures, and to represent various human concerns.

In Marking Space, the very boundaries of what sculpture has become are redefined. Turning our attention to identity, the environment, systems of power, and inequality, these artists have followed different paths with a common passion of expression. These works investigate language, the body, and the nature of image, recognition, space and orientation. Throughout these artworks, a narrative emerges: self, home, loss, boundaries.

The companion exhibition, Mapping the Uncharted, uses physical maps as a point of departure for reconfiguring impressions of geography, politics, and visual language. Historically, maps have been drawn to mark where we are, what lies around us, what lies before us, and to note the paths taken so that others may follow or we may return.

The five artists in Mapping the Uncharted give new meaning to the art of map making. Mark Garrett cuts and paints and transforms maps into visualizations of patterns that emphasize the fragility and debasement of the ecology. Lordy Rodriguez expands and conflates maps to make visible our cultural and political conceits. Diane Rosenblum appropriates artworks and superimposes auction prices creating a map of the art world. Guillermo Galindo creates scores of music composed with instruments made of found objects, these collected along the US – Mexico border in collaboration with photographer, Richard Misrach. Indira Martina Morre creates delicate surfaces marking the most ethereal — cyberspace – passwords and passages are noted with symbols and layers noting information.

The exhibitions Marking Space and Mapping the Uncharted open in the Main, West and South Galleries on March 21 and run through May, 20, 2017, at the Richmond Art Center, 2540 Barrett Avenue, Richmond, CA. The opening reception for both shows will take place on Saturday, March 18 from 5 – 7 pm.

Two Artists’ Panels will be presented in conjunction with these exhibitions: April 1 and April 8, both starting at 2 pm. All events and exhibitions are free and open to the public. For more information about Spring exhibitions, programming, and events, please visit the Richmond Art Center’s website: http://richmondartcenter.org
