Jane Fisher

Reviewed in Artweek

magazine by DeWitt Cheng

Jane Fisher’s Oct-Nov 2008 exhibition Down Time is written up by DeWitt Cheng in the February issue of Artweek magazine.

In his review of the 20 year (1988-2008) survey, Mr. Cheng provides a timely and refreshing perspective on contemporary realist painting and Jane’s unique point of view and approach.  He writes, “Given that many contemporary art objects seem to require technical manuals to gain a sense of their meaning, it’s a relief to contemplate realist painting which is user-friendly and intuitive by comparison”.

The Crocker-Kingsley Juried Biennial exhibition at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria in downtown Sacramento was written up in The Sacramento Bee.

Gage Opdenbrouw
Painting Spring Day 
praised in Sacramento Beehttp://www.sacbee.com/art/story/1543122.html

As she reviews the Diamond Anniversary of the Show, the Bee’s art correspondent Victoria Dalkey describes Juror Michael Bishop’s selections “designed to encompass the vibrant art scene throughout California”.  She writes, “there aren’t a lot of strong paintings in the show although … Gage Opdenbrouw’s nostalgic “Spring Day” stood out.”

Gage’s new series of paintings, “Windows”, is on display until April 12 in our Side Gallery.

Gage is teaching an 8 week Drawing and Painting with Pastels class for beginning and continuing artists, starting Wednesday, April 8th at the Sharon Art Studio in Golden Gate Park. 

Experience the immediacy of drawing, with all the sumptuous richness of color you associate with painting. This is the unique essence of pastel. Different approaches from immediate to highly developed paintings will be encouraged. Instruction will include basic color theory and other fundamental drawing and painting principles, as well as information on materials and lots of individual feedback.  Registration and information at www.sharonartstudio.org

Wednesdays, 10:30 am - 1:30 pm, Apr 8 - May 27, 2009

Artist Profile by DeWitt Cheng in Art Ltd. Magazinehttp://www.artltdmag.com/index.php?subaction=showfull&id=1236385026&archive=&start_from=&ucat=18&page=show

Susan Danis
“Art from the Sole” article by 
Eric Smillie in Craft Magazinehttp://www.craftzine-digital.com/craft/vol10?folio=20

An image of Susan Danis’ assemblage Bed is featured in the Handmade section of Craft’s Magazine’s March issue along with a profile of Susan and her work. 

The article explores the creative process involved in creating Danis’ unique art pieces; collecting objects that later make their way into her pieces using Bed as an example.  The piece include an old French bed frame, a mattress, a pee-stained sheet from a thrift store, fishing line, tied shoes, ice skates, velvet, horns, skulls and horse jaws.  “I try to embrace the universe as it is,” explains Danis.

Gary Brewer’s Artist Profile is featured in Art Ltd Magazine’s first Special Eco Issue.

DeWitt Cheng begins the Profile in the late 1990’s when Gary became dissatisfied with the abstractions he was then painting and begins “creating the strange hybrid amalgamations of flora, grafting together cryptobiology and environmentalism”.  Cheng compares Brewer’s “meticulous realism” to the 19th Century’s marriage of science and art, recalling Audubon’s dramatic bird paintings.  He concludes, “The paradox of traditional art, that reality transfigured by the imagination can help us perceive things properly, from a higher plane, is so old as to be new again”.
