Shift at The NWBLK OpensAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Tonight, a group show featuring Bay Area artists opens at The NWBLK in San Francisco. Michael Arcega, Mary Button Durell, Matt Gil, Amanda Hughen, Kimberly Rowe, Andrew Schoultz, William Swanson, and Arngunnur Ýr headline in Shift, an exhibit which offers a fresh perspective on craft, design, play, space, and beauty. United in an affinity for process and labor, the artists in Shift work across many mediums and showcase a range of aesthetic sensibilities that reveals a cross section of contemporary Bay Area art practices.
The show examines what kinds of relationships emerge when artwork is placed in relation to high design. By focusing on artists whose work explores material, form, space, color and light, Marx attempts to foster new conversations between the fine arts and the applied arts within the context of The NWBLK’s design showroom. The exhibition is sure to shift perspective on the way one views art.
Shift is on view at The NWBLK from October 2 through December 15, 2014. Opening reception: 10/2, 6-9 p.m.
Visit: 1999 Bryant St, San Francisco
