March Murmur Mashup

Here’s a collection of photos from this month’s Art Murmur… I had intended to do posts on the various artists/galleries but ran out of time, as another First Friday is already upon us.  Jeeezzzz. Hopefully these snaps give you an idea of the variety of cool stuff you can see… and I haven’t even included shots of the electro-string ensemble accompanied knitting circle!

The next few shots are from Hatch Gallery, featuring new works by Clint Imboden entitled “Selected Histories.”

I believe the shoe installation is titled “Words”, however I like to call it Poetry with Shoes.  An interactive display, patrons could rearrange the shoes…

Below is also Clint Imboden, from a series of vintage measuring stick sculptures titled “Measure.”  Love these.

The following ultra-cool screen printed poster is by Jason Munn. I love his minimalism and bought one of his earlier posters (Bike & Cats) at a previous Murmur.

The next shots were part of an installation at Mercury 20.  Titled “Inside Out” by artist P.K. Frizzell, x-rayed photographs of collections of common objects are mysterious & mesmerizing.

These last three are from a show at Studio Quercus, titled Impressions from the CCA(C) Print Shop – The Famous, The Not-So-Famous and the Totally Unknown. It was interesting to see early period works of many local notable artists, and to note how many of these artists have come through CCA.

Curated by CA(C) alumni and instructor Tim Sharman and CCA(C) alumni and professor Jack Ford, this exhibition spans 60 years of printmaking from the print shop at the California College of the Arts—formerly known as the California College of Arts and Crafts. This show remains up thru April 16th, so check it out…
