Receptions: August 10 • 5–8pm + September 14 • 5–8pm

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, 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. 

Chien considers how to create a line that asks one to contemplate control. Cohen lives to impart a deep wisdom about color. Colosky explores the tension inherent in our cultural expectations of particular materials. Goldbaum digs into how human endeavor impacts purpose and place. Kluth investigates the nature of reality in the context of landscapes. Stroud makes a plea for softness and touch.

Taken together, the work in Veer featured at Art Works Downtown in San Rafael, offers evidence that allowing oneself to move abruptly away from preconceived goals and expectations can lead to glorious new directions. That said, having an idea to start with, isn’t always such a bad idea.

  

Windy Chien makes art that activates space and crafts objects that elevate the daily rituals of life. She is best known for her 2016 project, The Year Knots, in which she learned a new knot every day for a year. Her work ranges in size from a knot that can fit in the palm of a child's hand to majestic, room-sized installations that are sought after by private collectors. Following long careers at Apple/iTunes and in the music industry, she launched her studio in 2015. Her work has been covered by Wired, The New York Times, Martha Stewart and more.

 

Sydney Cohen has exhibited in San Francisco, Oakland & Berkeley, Atlanta, British Columbia, Iowa and Chicago, and is in public collections in Boston and Iowa, and private collections all over the world. She is a Senior Adjunct Professor at the California College of the Arts. She has a MA/MFA from the University of Iowa, Iowa Arts Fellow and a BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts.

Frequently commissioned to do large public art, his work can be seen at the Embarcadero Square Complex, the Downtown Oakland Art Park and Sonoma State College, amongst other locations. He has been an artist in residence at Facebook, Inc. and KALA Art Institute, and has received grants from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The Zellerbach Family Foundation and the Fleishacker Foundation. He as a BFA in Ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute.

 

Amos Goldbaum is a native San Franciscan line drawer/painter, muralist, and street peddler of original apparel. His murals can be seen in the Bay Area, Japan, and Nepal. He received his BFA from Grinnell College, Iowa.
