Current Exhibit



09 Feb 2023 – 25 Mar 2023  

Opening Reception:  Th 9 Feb 5p – 8p

The pandemic caused most every one to reflect on various aspects of their life and work. The artists in this show used this interval to revisit their thinking, rework their ideas, and reclaim the narrative from one of an outside force acting upon them, to a rebirth of their inner forces of creativity.

California is an ecosystem with a remarkable range of flora, and an equally remarkable range of artists who work to capture the beauty, intrigue, and symbolism embodied in plant life.

After more than a year of the pandemic’s dark clouds acted as an unrelenting April Showers, forcing the cancellation of the original opening reception for this show, we are pleased to bring you this collection of May Flowers in a symbolic rebirth of artistic life.

Participating Artists:

Jennifer Banzaca, Douglas Benezra, Yooseon Choi, Velia de Iuliis, Donald Hershman, J. Iglesias, Dani Jeffries, Linda Larson, Peter Palmer, Peter Sandback, and Curtis Wallin.




12.06.2020 – 02.28.2020  

The Invisibility Collective and invited guest artists assembled an exhibition that is the culmination of months of virtual “Covid Conversations” from the West Coast to the East Coast of the USA.

We are looking at various ways that people express their feelings about being seen and not being seen and the intersection of the two worlds. We are exploring the many aspects of what it means to be invisible and presenting ways of becoming more aware of how this status affects us.

Together and individually we are exploring this intersection of being seen and unseen. The ideas that form the foundation of the collective preceded Covid, but have not surprisingly grown to encompass elements and results of the prolonged pandemic. We are peeling away layers to look beneath the obvious – to reveal – and to reflect through an art experience that peaks the senses.

Questions are raised. Answers are discussed. It is experiential.Participating Artists:

Collective Members: Lonnie Graham, Susan R. Kirshenbaum, Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, Samira Shaheen, Angela Tirrell

Invited Artists: Mary Graham, Sophia Green, Rell Rushin, Sawyer Rose, John Stone, Christopher M. Tandy (Courtesy of Glass Rice Gallery, SF), Nancy Willis

paintings by
andrew lyko

10.05.2019 – 10.26.2019

Lyko’s artwork uses mediums of acrylic, oil bar and spray paint in diverse mediums which awaken our sensibilities to experiences and strokes which stimulate our intense interest. Growing up in Southern California, Lyko was heavily influenced by his childhood in East Los Angeles where he saw and experienced street urban culture and spent many childhood days on his skateboard flying by street graffiti from Shepard Fairey, Mr Brainwash, Invader and Kid Zoom.
