ArtDivas at Tsao Gallery

The Tsao Gallery in the Davis Art Center features eARTh, a group installation inspired by earth’s natural beauty, the ecology, and problems that plague the planet. The exhibit runs October 8 through November 13, 2009. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday 9:30am-7:00pm and Friday, 9:30am-5:00pm. The ArtAbout reception is Friday, October 9 from 7:00-9:00 pm. The exhibit is sponsored by Suzanne Kimmel Associates.

The ArtDivas, seven Solano county artists, will exhibit art that reflects their artistic relationship with the earth. The artists use collage and assemblage techniques throughout the entire 30 piece exhibition. Work is two and three dimensional. Several inter-active pieces are part of the exhibit, with the purpose of drawing the audience into a participatory role to explore the balance between art and nature.

Reoccurring themes unify the exhibit, however fresh perspectives abound. For example, in a specific group of pieces, each ArtDiva uses copper or a copper element. Metals are inherent elements of earth; but how they are consumed, how they are being depleted, or just their natural beauty becomes the source of inspiration for each ArtDiva. A few other themes include Water, and the concept “Scorched”.
