Kaixin Yu – Beauty Lost Identity

Kaixin Yu’s debut solo exhibition “Beauty Lost Identity” explores a duality of Victorian society in which the celebration of women and beauty is interwoven with the suppression of female strength. Sculptural jewelry pieces feature images of women and highlight structural and mechanical motifs reminiscent of the industrial age. Her wide range of formats and styles yield a comprehensive line of jewelry with a strong unifying theme.

Exhibition continues through December 28th

Carolyn Meyer, SF+NYC

Urban landscapes are a favorite subject of Carolyn Meyer, and while she approaches all of her landscape and still life works with the same daring and fearlessness that has become her trademark, it is the cityscape that draws her back again and again, and has become a cornerstone of her career.  Her current Exhibition SF+NYC finds its inspiration in two of America’s most iconic cities, each a cultural center and symbol of the coast it represents.

Nathan Nash – Neglected Spaces

Return Engagement

Nathan Nash | Neglected Spaces

Having spent his early life in rural Alaska, Nathan Nash grew up with little exposure to urban architecture. It’s no surprise then, that moving to San Francisco should profoundly influence his artistic vision. Combining an artist’s eye with a fresh viewpoint, Nash explores the structural aspects of architecture that pass beneath the notice of most city dwellers. His exhibition “Neglected Spaces” examines these unseen elements, the angles, corners, and surfaces that make up the urban environment.
