San Diego Art Fair
57 Underground will be participating in the San Diego Art Fair, November 8-10. Two of our newest artists, Lisa Brugger and Karen Duckles, will be participating. Lisa creates highly textured acrylics on canvas, incorporating positive words and found objects within layers of color. Karen creates flowing gestural abstractions which are influenced by nature and the world around her.
Complementary tickets for the three days are available at the gallery. We hope to see you there!
57 UNDERGROUND FALL EXHIBITION
Gallery 57 Underground, a non profit contemporary art gallery in the Pomona Arts Colony, downstairs at 300 South Thomas Street, will present an exhibition entitled “Spiritual Journeys” by artists Jeanne Andersen, Georga Garside, and Sharon Algozer from September 14 through October 26. Artist receptions take place on two Saturdays, September 14 and October 12 from 6-9 p.m. Regular gallery hours are Friday through Sunday from 12-4.
Jeanne Andersen, who painted and taught in Kenya for many years, creates large scale mixed media canvases. Inspired by the music of George Frideric Handel’s Messiah (1741), she uses abstract imagery to suggest what might happen if this magnificent music could be viewed through the lens of ballet movements.
In her linoleum prints on a textile background, art teacher and MFA candidate Georga Garside takes her inspiration from medieval Byzantine icons, which are noted for their extensive use of gold leaf. She transforms these images by connecting them to contemporary issues, such as societal greed and corporate domination of the media.
Sharon Algozer, Claremont fiber artist, a retired professor of design from Chaffey College, integrates a variety of materials to examine the relationship of humanity’s spiritual history and of nature’s influence on our inner lives. Pieces from her Goddess series (one even incorporates cast off jewelry from her family and friends) and her Nature’s Movement series will be featured.
