"48 Pillars" was inspired by a chance encounter at Flax with a close-out sale of deep vertical panels, 48” x 12” x 1 5/8”. 24 local Bay Area artists will produce two companion pieces each on these identically sized panels that will exactly ring the gallery - 48 works total.
Featured artists: Carlos Cartagena, Paule Dubois Dupuis, Holly Downing, Georgianne Fastaia, Rebecca Fox, Laura Hapka, Patter Hellstrom, Ester Hernandez, Howard Hersh, Isis Hockenos, Vincent Jackson, Ivy Jacobsen, Carole Jeung, Kevin Keul, Joseph Kowalczyk, Katja Leibenath, Paul Morin, Stephen Namara, Hadley Radt, Lucky Rapp, Fernando Reyes, Ari Salomon, Cindy Shih, & Ursula X. Young
This is the second annual exhibition at Arc Gallery. It is essentially a “structural constraint” show, similar to our other “structural constraint” exhibition: the iconic annual, end of summer exhibition, FourSquared. In both exhibitions, the artists are unconstrained in subject matter except to the extent that works need to be a series; but they are constrained in format.
