Gathering texture, following shape

GATHERING TEXTURE, FOLLOWING SHAPE

“Gathering texture, following shape” is a two-person exhibition of works by Nancy Shaver and Emi Winter at Parker Gallery. The show includes recent sculptures by Shaver, together with woven rugs and paintings by Winter. In both of their art practices, Shaver and Winter have expressed reverance for the rituals and intimacy of the space we call home.  Their works in this exhi-bition do not seek to imitate the domestic but rather to bring the artwork home.  The dual usage of Parker Gallery, as an exhibition space and residence, is of particular significance to this presentation, locating the home as a traditional site for the display of art. “Gathering texture, following shape” runs until March 30th, 2019 at Parker Gallery.

Flor Garduño

FLOR GARDUñO

Flor Garduño was born in Mexico and studied visual arts at the Academy of San Carlos (UNAM), where she focused on the search for the structural aspects of form and space. She gave up her studies to work as a darkroom assistant for Manuel Álvarez Bravo, one of Mexico's most prestigious photographers, with whom she strengthened her photographic skills. Since then, Garduño has received numerable prizes, and her work has been exposed and published around the world. Garduño's photos depict the landscapes of Central and South America -- and the people whose ancestors were indigenous to the region. Her photos depict subjects that could have existed in a time long before the present moment, and through photographing them, brings the Indian land of America to the present moment. Though many themes traverse Garduño's body of work, all ultimately reach the point of incense where, uncertainly, nature, and art blend so that mankind may have a margin of whimsy, freedom, or significance on the face of the gods.

The Notion of Family

THE NOTION OF FAMILY

In The Notion of Family, artworks from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries chart a trajectory of African American family and togetherness over generations. Throughout the exhibition the notion of family is expressed in numerous mediums, including photographs by James Van Der Zee, Carrie Mae Weems, and Lyle Ashton Harris; paintings by William E. Pajaud and others; and prints by Romare Bearden and John Biggers. As a whole, these empowering images illustrate that the African American family is a model for thriving, even amid hardship. They suggest a sense of levity while also reflecting agency, love, strength, diversity, and unity from an African American perspective. The Notion of Family will be on view until March 3, 2019 at the California African American Museum.
