An intriguing new art exhibition is coming to our neighborhood’s own Verge Gallery (at 1900 V Street). “Women on Nature,” an exhibit featuring recent works by several Bay Area women artists (and curated by San Francisco artist Emily Prince), will run from Thursday, September 10 through Saturday, October 24 — with a reception this Thursday from 6:00 t0 10:00 p.m. The show will also be open for Second Saturday on September 12 and October 10; and some of the artists will attend a panel discussion on their works on Thursday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m.
According to the Verge Gallery’s website, the “Women on Nature” artists will “investigate our human manipulation of the natural world” through a “dynamic” variety of mixed-media and conceptual art pieces. The pieces in this exhibition range from Amy Balkin’s large-scale projected website proposal for a clean-air park, “Public Smog”; to Sara Bright’s and Lindsey White’s landscape photography; to Sierra Zumwalt’s paper sculptures and Sunaura Taylor’s “large-scale epic” painting, “Chicken Truck.” There will also be a temporary library with books that have inspired specific pieces in the show.
Sounds interesting to me. I’m definitely going to check it out…. (See another article about it on the Second Saturday website here.)
