Mallrats: reception and art opening at Et al. Gallery

Come join other Bay Area alums to celebrate NY-based D'10 artist Kari Cholnoky's art opening at Et al. Gallery in Dogpatch.

Her joint installation with three other artists is being described as: "30% maximalism, 15% Arachne truther movement, 15% lo-fi Midwest shit, 15% suburban ennui, 10% decoupage, 10% roach spit, 5% the faint waft of Cinnabon."

 We don't know about you, but we can't miss the opportunity to see what that combination looks like, check out some amazing art, and support one of our own.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Art Opening: Rachelle Reichert's The Earth Rolls from Under
Anna Hearburg D'10's art gallery SOME.TIME.SALON will be having an opening reception for Rachelle Reichert's exhibition "The Earth Rolls from Under" on Saturday, September 17th from 4-7PM.
Rachelle Reichert researches the usages and associations of her mediums by weaving story lines of scientific innovation and ecology into her art. At Some.Time.Salon (STS), Reichert will show work created while an artist in residence at Planet Labs (an earth imaging and aerospace company based in San Francisco) and Signal Fire (a weeklong camping residency in the Cascade Range near Portland, OR).

In The Earth Rolls from Under, Reichert uses drawing to e
xplore the distance between a personal understanding of humanity’s impact on the planet and the representation of this impact as depicted in satellite photography. During the settlement of the American West, the exploitation of natural resources occurred in conjunction with the glorification of the West as an idea - a sublime landscape imagined and reproduced in epic paintings by artists such as Albert Bierstadt and Frederic Edwin Church. Satellite images are hybridized, composite mosaics of photographs from varying dates and times woven together to create the most compelling image (and to hide proprietary technology from competitors). Reichert’s work investigates the implications of these manipulated photographs and the consequences of not acknowledging the scars our consumption has created on the Earth’s delicate surface.

Docent-Led Tour of "Ed Ruscha and the Great American West" Exhibit

DAASV is pleased to bring you private, docent-led tours of three important exhibitions of California and Western art. Three Bay Area museums have brought together exhibits of the historic West, of the work of an important California artist showcasing the Southwest, and of a wide range of artists illustrating the history of water in California. The second of these is the "Ed Ruscha and the Great American West" exhibit at the de Young Museum of Art.

Ed Ruscha and the Great American West includes 99 works that reveal the artist’s engagement with the American West and its starring role in our national mythology. This exclusive exhibition celebrates the career of one of the world’s most influential and critically acclaimed artists. In 1956, at the age of 18, Ed Ruscha left his home in Oklahoma and drove a 1950 Ford sedan to Los Angeles, where he hoped to attend art school. His trip roughly followed the fabled Route 66 through the Southwest, which featured many of the sights—auto repair shops, billboards, and long stretches of roadway punctuated by telephone poles—that would provide him with artistic subjects for decades to come.

This collection reveals Ruscha’s fascination with the evolving landscape and iconic character of the “Great American West” in symbolic, evocative, and ironic renditions. These include works that depict gasoline stations, long an important element of Ruscha’s work, as well as others that comment on Los Angeles and the film industry, such as his famous “Technicolor” images of the Hollywood sign. Ruscha has now worked in his California desert studio for more than 50 years, and this exhibition celebrates his long commitment to exploring the American west as both romantic concept and modern reality.

Theater Evening at the San Francisco Playhouse

Come join the DCGSF and DAASV at the theater on Friday, October 7th!

We will be viewing the world premiere of "Seared" by Theresa Rebeck at the San Francisco Playhouse

7:00PM: Pre-show Dartmouth alumni wine and mingling with a guest speaker from the production (TBD).

8:00PM: Play begins

Play details:  In between the caramelized onions and sizzling garlic frying up in the onstage kitchen, tempers are boiling over. The Chef’s eight-table jewel box has become a New York favorite. Now the Investor wants to cash in, but the Chef isn’t ready to sell out—and the battle between art and commerce ensues. What is the recipe for success, and how many can it serve?
