January 23 - March 6Free
Manna Gallery is pleased to present our first show for 2021. “Tents and Towers”, recent works by Marin artist Janet Bogardus, opens Saturday. January 23 and continues to Saturday, March 6. A meet and greet for Janet occurs on Saturday, January 30, from 2 – 4pm, when she will be present to greet visitors and discuss her latest work.
Janet says this about her work,” I am fascinated with cities, in all their contradictions …In the series Tents and Towers I invite you to feel both realities, the sublime and the degraded, as they occur in our present moment. And I also ask you to question which are most alive, persistent, and creative – the splendid but impersonal and looming towers of downtown, or the tenacious, quirky, bedraggled encamp-ments of the unhoused.”
Janet Bogardus is a San Francisco Bay Area painter and mixed-media artist. Since 1989, she has exhibited her work at a variety of venues in California and New York, including solo exhibitions at Manna Gallery in Oakland, Benicia Arts Presents, Contra Costa College, and Marin Museum of Contemporary Art
