1611 4th st  Rebound Bookstore  
reception: Kate Pepper’s Big Show! 10 years of watercolor
“I am excited by gardens of all kinds, in whatever state of glory or disrepair. I love to paint at high noon, when shadows are at their most intense. Marin has been my home for 25 years. and I feel blessed to be surrounded by so much natural beauty. Color and light are everything.” 

1553 4th st  Atelier 1553  
reception:Bound, Karyn Gabriel, October 4–25
Influenced by shapes and patterns found in urban landscapes and nature, my work searches beneath the surface, paring form to its essence and revealing the structures surrounding us.I find beauty in the elemental and unadorned, the slightly brutal forms often hidden in plain sight. My current work delves into personal identity and our sometimes tenuous attempt to hold all the disparate pieces together. What binds those elements of self is a source of inspiration and exploration. 
Atelier 1553 announces its grand opening of a new furniture, lighting and art gallery. This workspace is also the studio to local architect Jeffrey Mahaney and interior designer Chelsea Brown of Leap Interior Design.

Underground Gallery (AWD)   info 
reception: What Lies Ahead, Lisa Clarke 
Exploring the painful andbeautiful process in which people come together for the common good. Inwhich humans acknowledge their place in nature. In which we understand that we are completely insignificant as far as the universe is concerned. And in which we discover that we are as unique, intriguing, and inexplicably wondrous as anything else in existance. 

Founders' Gallery (AWD)   info  
Been Black & Dazed, Fan Lee Warren
My work examines historic results on contemporary Black American Culture. Figures are arranged within layered fragments of historical memories woven into a visual language steeped in symbolism that analyzes the impact on societal norms and behaviors. The work examines the reality of looking backwards and being in the present simultaneously. Images are drawn and painted on collaged, stressed paper using pigment, graphite, ink, watercolor, and acrylic paints.

Transformer, Mark Olson
Painting is transformation. The collecting and applying of various tools and compounds to create an image is perhaps the oldest human act of transformation, outside the human transformation of dance. As artists, we’re transformers in the business of transformation, you might say it’s our stock and trade. The painter scratches his marks or daubs his color knowing that the deep mystery of his work opens a portal between realms, and that, even if only for a moment, whoever truly sees is transformed. Doubtless some have always understood this better than others, as the caves at Chauvet and Lascaux reflect, as well as the likelihood that even back in those times there were probably famous painters. But as just dance transforms the dancer, so does painting transform the painter both during and after the act itself. This is a simple fact, the result of a path authentically pursued. It is not an easy path easily pursued though, nor could it be otherwise. Thus it was in the beginning, so it is today.
