Opening Saturday, November 21st, 5 – 7 pm
DAN GOTTLIEB MOVING PICTURES/FIGURE AND FOREST
For Moving Pictures/Figure and Forest, showing in the main gallery, Dan Gottlieb combines photography, painting, and fine craftsmanship to create his mixed media work. ”My pictures are observations of the transient nature of life, its light, shadows and patterns that I find beautiful,” says Dan. “I hope they also evoke a sense of the temporal, non-solid matter that we call consciousness, ghost-walking between sleep and awake.”
IRIS GOTTLIEB ANIMAL VEGETABLE, MANDIBLE
In the upstairs gallery, Oakland-based artist Iris Gottlieb (Dan’s daughter) brings an elegant line and quirky sense of humor to her drawings for Animal, Vegetable, Mandible.
Iris brings to life “ … the tiny, unnoticed things that litter our desks, our pockets and the forest floor.” Her work was recently featured in Smithsonian Magazine; she is the illustrator for the Exploratorium in San Francisco and the Oakland Museum.
