Deck the Walls: Our Super-Affordable Exhibition

From: 
Monday, November 10, 2014
Until: 
Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Northern California artists James Aarons and Mark Taylor have tapped into a vein of emotion connecting a number of NIAD artists. “I Have Always Been a Storm” is a group exhibition of more than 33 objects, drawings and paintings, features weather patterns, landscapes, portraits and city structures that vibrate with sentiment and color. Although, the works are often full to overflowing with marks and ideas, there is a deliberate insistence of contemplation within them that seems to be asking, “Are you looking at me?” Reply: “Yes, of course. And we can’t look away.”

Featured in the exhibition are works from Lois Ann Barnett, Krissi Dean, Luis Estrada, Carlos Fernandez, Joe Flores, Sylvia Fragoso, Peter Harris, Erica Martinez, Dorothy Porter, Demetri Petroupolos, Kevin Randolph, Elena Rossi, Jonathan Valdivias, Jonathan Velazquez, Michael Walker, and Billy White.

Mark Taylor is a visual artist and experimental filmmaker who works across media, including screen printing, film, photography, collage, sculpture, and text. His artist books have been collected by the Library of Congress, the University of Southern California, Stanford University, the Dartmouth Hood Museum and the New York Museum of Modern Art, among many others. Taylor’s films have screened at festivals, galleries and museums around the world. He lives and works in San Francisco.

James Aarons is a reformed modern dancer, ceramic artist and yoga teacher who combines the gestural necessities of each of these skills when considering what to do. Whether it’s making a drawing of a line or articulating a direction in space, the quality of the movement that creates it is what informs his work most. Mr. Aarons’ work is collected by private and corporate clients nationally and is in the collections of Kaiser Permanente, Sodexo USA, Northwest Mutual and the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, among others. He splits his time between Mokelumne Hill and San Francisco, CA; one for studio and the other for restaurants and civilization.

Aarons and Taylor are married.

Trading Places

From: 
Saturday, September 1, 2012
Until: 
Friday, November 2, 2012

NIAD is happy to announce that our latest show, Trading Places, is now on view in the gallery. It’s a group show featuring NIAD’s studio staff and artists, who have selected each other’s artwork for display in the exhibit. The staff chose one piece of art by a NIAD artist whose work shares an affinity with their own. That artist then chose a work of art created by the staff member. The opening reception for Trading Places is this Saturday, September 8, from 2-5pm.

During the reception we’ll also be celebrating the rebirth of our garden, which was generously updated and transformed by a donor. You can check out the pictures on our blog, or better yet, you can see it in person!

So please join us this Saturday. We’ll have refreshments and snacks on hand for you to enjoy while you peruse the art and relax in the garden.
