Meg Wolfe, “Winter Show” @ White Walls
Just got word that I’ve been added to the artist roster for White Walls‘ Winter Show, opening tonight at 7pm and running through the 1st of January! For full details, here’s a copy of the show’s official press release:
“SAN FRANCISCO- September 06, 2010 – White Walls is pleased to announce their annual Winter Group Show, an exhibition featuring the work of many prominent urban artists of both established and emerging careers working in assorted genres and mediums. The exhibition features works by Charles Krafft, Joshua Petker, ABOVE, Clayton Brothers, Akira, Hush, Shepard Fairey, Henry Gunderson, D Young V, Jessica Hess, Pedro Matos, Kevin Cyr, Casey Gray, Geoff Campen, Diana Campen and Blek le Rat. The opening reception for The Winter Group Show will be held at White Walls on Saturday, December 11 from 7-10pm. The exhibition will be on display through January 01, 2011 and is free and open to the public.
The Winter Group Show aims to reveal the wide variety of topics and themes urban, street and lowbrow artists explore, and put forth challenging ideas about urban art. Joshua Petker consciously continues the art historical practice of exploring the nuance of human emotion through the female form. Shepard Fairey’s “aesthetic flirtations with… propaganda graphics” aims to inspire his audience to investigate the political and socio-economic status quo. Newcastle-based street artist Hush’s portraits of geisha and anime women examine gender roles, juxtaposing Eastern imagery and Western cultural values. These three artists are just a sample of the incredible artwork that will be on display in the Winter Group Show. This exceptional collection of art will further examine the boundaries of lowbrow, street, and fine art in an exciting and novel way.
White Walls Gallery is the premiere destination for urban art. Combined with the Shooting Gallery just next door, this 4,000 sq ft space is one of the largest art galleries on the West Coast. Justin Giarla founded the gallery in 2005 with a commitment to furthering the urban art movement that stems from street art and graffiti art. Named for its plain white walls, we take a backseat to the real focus: the art. (And yes, we have white walls).
When: Opening Reception: Saturday, December 11, 2010 7-11 PM
Show runs through Saturday, December 11, 2010 – January 01, 2011
