1340 4th st   Mc Rosky Mattress Company    music
reception: Allyson Seal likes telling stories. “My creative practice is an intuitive one that involves layers, attunement, time, and attention. I see each piece as a process of curiosity and medicine exploring the human experience and the more-than-human world. The past year has been one of awakening and transformation. I used to do a lot of different things--my spiritual practice, my creative practice, my teaching practice. I see now that weaving them all together is my work.”

music: KG Trio plays the music of Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Herbie Nichols and more. Exploring the repertoire of '50's bebop and '60's soul jazz, the group enjoys driving chromaticism over a bouncy road, paying homage to the legends of jazz, while forging new paths with compositions of their own. Kevin Gerzevitz - Piano, Gabriel Case - Bass, Rob Rhodes- Dru

1337 4th st  Art Works Downtown  strawberry-icon WineSymbol  
reception: Veer  info 
Curators Theodora Mauro and Tracy Wheeler focus on the mystery of how nothing becomes something in the art making process, balancing in part on an artist’s ability to veer from an original concept towards what’s calling to be made. Windy Chien, Sydney Cohen, Randy Colosky, Amos Goldbaum, Mary Anne Kluth, and Patricia Lyons Stroud passionately embrace the vertigo of not knowing in order to make work that teaches them, piece by piece, about what they’re after. Taken together, the work in Veer offers evidence that allowing oneself to move abruptly away from preconceived goals and expectations can lead to glorious new directions.

Underground Gallery (AWD)  info 
reception: Through A Bird's Eye, Molly Brown
An exhibition of images seen from a bird’s perspective. This collection of mostly new work in oil includes seascapes, landscapes, and abstractions of the natural world. Natural colors, patterns, and atmospheres are paramount. Artist Molly Brown has been trained in scientific illustration and pays great attention to detail in her artwork. This new work is a departure and focuses on mood and color, abstracting land, and seascapes. All of the work can be imagined as how a bird might perceive the world while flying or perched on a branch. Changing the viewer’s perspective is the desire and goal.

Founders' Gallery (AWD)   info 
reception: Drop, Victoria Mara Heilweil
Drop is a meditation on water. The patterns in these images echo my experience of standing at the water’s edge, recording the effects of wind and light upon the surface of the liquid. They demonstrate a moment frozen in time using a fast shutter speed, which reveals the markings and patterns. Because we live in time, we are unable examine these intricate nuances without the use of photography. The camera captures a single fleeting moment that can never be repeated. What appears is a serendipitous surprise to me.  

I began this series with the idea of transforming a familiar, commonplace element from its literal representation into something poetic. The images expose the hidden, mystical features of an otherwise ordinary substance.

1325 Donors'Gallery info 
reception: Botanical Beauty, Bolinas School of Botanical Art Exhibition
The Bolinas School of Botanical Art exhibition celebrates the beauty and intricacy of various plants found growing in West Marin. These accurate plant portraits were created by local Bolinas and Stinson Beach artists. Media used includes graphite, colored pencils and watercolor pencils. A blend of art and science, botanical art captures the essence of plant species. After closely observing and measuring the plant subjects, the artist discovers amazing details. The challenge for the botanical artist is to both describe each plants’ unique qualities and recreate its grace and beauty.
