25 years

Celebrating. Looking forward. Giving back.

We look forward to sharing exciting news throughout 2022 as we mark our 25th anniversary with a year-long series of special events and exhibitions celebrating the artists who have shaped the gallery's program since 1997.

25th Anniversary. Art for Change.

Throughout the year we will be releasing multiples and editioned work, created by gallery artists to mark the occasion. Sale proceeds from these releases will be donated to groups like Planned Parenthood and Sister Song, that advocate for reproductive justice and freedom, ensuring access to the care and resources all people need to make informed decisions about their bodies, their lives and their futures.

Steuart Pittman: Plinth, a limited edition of serigraphs

For the final release from the gallery’s 25th Anniversary fundraising project, we are pleased to offer Plinth, a special limited edition of serigraphs by Steuart Pittman. While the silkscreen medium was a natural choice for the rich, saturated color and sharp edges, this new print also combines his longstanding interest in geometric abstraction with a compositional approach that takes its cues from Josef Albers’ unique color theory classes from the 60s. Featuring one of Pittman’s favorite color palettes of cadmium blue and orange, titanium buff, and ultramarine blue, Plinth masterfully illustrates that color can be subjective and also crucial to the experience of viewing. Continually aspiring towards a sense of harmony in his work, the integration of the recognizable color palette and idiosyncratic forms feels simultaneously balanced and random.

Continuing our support of reproductive freedoms and equitable access to health care, 50% of sale proceeds from the release of this series will be donated to reproductive rights organizations like Sister Song and Planned Parenthood.

Stas Orlovski: Running Man, a series of tintypes

For the 8th release from the gallery’s 25th Anniversary fundraising project, we are pleased to offer Running Man, a special limited series of tintypes by Stas Orlovski. Using a time sensitive photographic technique popular during the late 1800s, he captures an enigmatic, constructivist-style figure on metal plates with dramatic effect. With each exposure, he manipulates the photo emulsion chemicals and the length of exposure to create subtle changes from one plate to the next, so that each unique tintype becomes an individual still that references the artist’s stop-motion animations.

As a metaphor for migration and loss, Orlovski’s moving figure signals both the powerful experience of a collective history and the transitory nature of personal memory. Born in the former Soviet republic of Moldova, with a thriving studio practice in Los Angeles over the last few decades, Orlovski has developed a multifaceted approach that blends a wide variety of influences including Russian Modernism, European Surrealism, Soviet experimental animation, and found vintage ephemera. History in Orlovski’s work is always haunting the present.

Continuing our support of reproductive freedoms and equitable access to health care, 50% of sale proceeds from the release of this series will be donated to reproductive rights organizations like Sister Song and Planned Parenthood.

Amanda Marchand: The World is Astonishing With You in it: A 21st Century Field Guide to the Birds, Ferns and Wildflowers, an edition of folios

For the 7th release from the gallery’s 25th Anniversary fundraising project, we are pleased to offer a special set of three hand cut lumen collages by Amanda Marchand from her series “The World is Astonishing with You in it: A 21st Century Field Guide to the Birds, Ferns and Wildflowers.” Housed in an iridescent black folio, each of the collages is signed by the artist, and references an endangered species of bird (“Vesper Sparrow”), fern (“Golden Leather”) and wildflower (“Scarlet Ammania”). Also inside each folio is a piece of unfixed lumen paper that will continue to change color as it is exposed to light, so that over time, a unique print is created from the folio itself. Available in a limited edition of 12.

Marchand has been working with the dynamic camera-less lumen process over the last few years, approaching each exposure as a meditation, with colors shifting to reveal the latent colors in various black and white photo papers. Well known for her artist books as well as her photo-based art, Marchand uses her practice to draw attention to “the fragility of nature, the fragility of the planet, and the fragility of our human species. Everything is temporal, and because of that, so astonishing.”

Continuing our support of reproductive freedoms and equitable access to health care, 50% of sale proceeds from the release of this print series will be donated to reproductive rights organizations like Sister Song and Planned Parenthood. Released August 2022.

Adia Millett: Hues of the New Moon, a series of monoprints

For the 6th release from the gallery’s 25th Anniversary fundraising project, we are pleased to offer a series of monoprints by Adia Millett: 12 unique lino cuts, each printed and hand painted by the artist during a recent residency at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley. The title, Hues of the New Moon, alludes to what can be revealed in the dark, when the night sky is no longer lit by the sun, and cast shadows distort our surroundings. In those searching moments we are compelled to pay closer attention to the world around us to uncover the bright spots that can be camouflaged at other times. In keeping with a larger art practice that comprises a variety of media, Millet’s work investigates our connection to the Earth and the fragile interconnectivity among all living things. Continuing our support of reproductive freedoms and equitable access to health care, 50% of sale proceeds from the release of this series will be donated to reproductive rights organizations like Sister Song and Planned Parenthood. Released July 2022.

Samantha Fields: Scope, a limited edition print

For the 5th release from the gallery’s 25th Anniversary fundraising project, we are pleased to offer Scope, by Samantha Fields: a limited edition print featuring an image specially selected from the artist’s rarely seen photography archive. Depicting a glowing palm tree haloed by rings of sunlight, and reflected through the echoing lens of a scope, this work reveals the transformative properties of light as seen through ephemeral occurrences. As in her larger practice, Fields immerses the viewer in landscapes that embrace both fact and fiction, recreating the energy and emotions of fleeting moments. Continuing our support of reproductive freedoms and equitable access to health care, 50% of sale proceeds from the release of this print series will be donated to reproductive rights organizations like Sister Song and Planned Parenthood. Released June 2022.

Diana Guerrero-Maciá: The Beautiful Girls, a series of limited edition prints

For the 4th release from the gallery’s 25th Anniversary fundraising project, we are pleased to offer The Beautiful Girls, by Diana Guerrero-Maciá, a series of prints that features enigmatic “portraits” in which the shifting absence or presence of an actual face or bodily form offers a nod to the changing state of current body politics. While Guerrero-Maciá is well known for her deliberate choices in materials and imagery that allow for a critical engagement with larger societal issues around race, gender, and identity, she also addresses barriers in the art world with a hybrid approach that embraces collage, painting and traditional textile practices. 50% of sale proceeds from the release of the prints will be donated. Released April 2022.
