Waking Dreams info 
Angelique Benicio: painting - sculpture - video
Angelique Benicio’s allegorical work evokes enchantment and eeriness. Lush surfaces and sharp realism draw the viewer into an imaginative world with unsettling undercurrents. Her paintings and installations invite the viewer to ask if there is something familiar gazing back, some long forgotten feeling, both unnerving and transformative.

• Underground Gallery (AWD) info 
reception: The Lopsided Boogie and How She Came Out of Darkness
video installation by Angelique Benicio
This video installation is best described as performance work created for film. The main character, Lopsided Boogy, tries to navigate her way through a dark but dreamy world where white grease-painted clowns feast at a chaotic and decadent tea party. Accompanying the film is a selection from Benicio's series of mixed-media photographic compositions which depict her fantastical creatures moving through strange worlds.

• Founders' Gallery (AWD)  info 
reception: Paper Zoo, cut paper collage
Paper Zoo features the collages of creative duo artist Andrea Bergen and designer Tetsuya Takenomata. Their menagerie of animal-centric work ranges from the cute to chaotic and expresses the artists' love for animals and concern about the future of wildlife. The small pieces are fun experiments celebrating the beautiful forms and patterns of nature. The larger pieces imagine the planet after humans have gone extinct and poses a hopeful vision that animals will adapt to the damaged environment and make use of the detritus left behind.

•  1325 Donors'Gallery  info 
reception: Jessica Carsten
Jessica Carsten's series of abstract skyscapes draw the viewer's attention away from the contracted chaos of life on land and into the etherial beauty of the sky. Many pieces are inspired by life on the Marin County coast, while others capture the mood of the south western deserts, pacific northwest lakes, and inland waterways.
