Shawn Griggs: Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds, and Points in Between

March 7 through April 26

For some time now, I have been infatuated with several concepts... the incredible beauty of our north coast, the mysteries of life, and riding waves... All of these ideas have strong connections to my heart, and exploring each of these concepts individually as well as infusing them with one another, has been the focus of the work for my show.

Katherine Meyer: Finding Your Place

March 7 through April 19

“Being alone in nature has always sustained me.  In my twenties, I lived for 5 years in a house in the Maine woods with wood heat and no electricity or running water or money; that close to nature, I felt I had more resources than at any other time. Although I live with more amenities now, I still seek out solitary experiences in untamed territory.  What is it about a particular landscape that lets me take my place in it?  My drawings are attempts to answer that question, to make visible what helps create my heart’s own home.”

“This work is not meant to be self-reflexive only, and I don’t intend to impose my vision on viewers.  Whether my inspiration is the mystery of California redwoods or the austerity of the Maine coast, I want to make spaces that invite people to follow their own path through each drawing, to take their own place in that environment, and to sense the restorative connection that still can exist between us and nature.”

Natalie Craig: Notations on The Great Highway

March 7 through April 12

When we look at landscapes do we see the landscape itself or is it imbued with thoughts and memories? This exhibit of mixed media paintings explores the balance between what is seen and the imprint of the human spirit.  The Great Highway is a notion of passing through time and, also, the road alongside the beach in San Francisco’s Sunset. Using details of the beach along the Great Highway the artist explores how perception informs, and is informed by, place, and inspires the search for beauty.
