Annual Group Exhibit- Sanctuary – GEARBOX GALLERY
August 7 - September 5Free
With origins in sacred places, "Sanctuary" has come to designate a place where someone is protected and given shelter, as refuge from pursuit, persecution, or other danger. Sanctuary asks the question: What does it mean to have a home or place of safety and what does it mean not to have one. Issues we are currently facing globally, nationally, and in Oakland and the Bay Area.
Gearbox Gallery gathers the work of 40 Northern California artists selected by Juror RenÃ© de Guzman, director of Exhibition Strategy and Senior Curator of Art at the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA). The work explores the idea of "Sanctuary" in a remarkable range from painting and photography to sculpture, assemblage, and film. Artists include Peter Adamyan, Angela Baker, Francis Baker, Brandin BarÃ³n, Tony Bellaver, Pamela Blotner, Noah Breuer, Heidi Brueckner, Kimberly Campisano, Tonita Cervantes, Mark Coggins, Jim Darke, Dana DeKalb, Stephanie Dennis, Hope Ezcurra, Jane Fisher, Jo Ford, Gina Gaiser, Sheila Ghidini, Stacey Gregory, Christine Huhn, Jane Ivory, Leah Korican, Kimberlee Koym-Murteira, John Lucas, Linda MacDonald, Mary Marsh, Gary Miller, Berverly Mills, Lori Murphy, Annie Ng, Cindy Ostroff, Mie Preckler, Steven Schwartz, James Shefik, Elizabeth Sher, Bob Slote, Eliza Thomas, Jeanie Wakeland, and Dave Yoas.
