The Monthly Reviews Our Exhibitions

Dewitt Cheng from The Monthly stopped by our galleries to review our fall exhibitions, here's what he had to say:

"With SFMOMA closed for construction and the Berkeley Art Museum about to close and move to new digs, what's an art-lover to do for visual sustenance? The Richmond Art Center has been on a programming roll recently, notably with sculpture, and four shows that started on September 14 promise to keep up the momentum."

Three of the shows examine Bay Area Figuration, one of our region's main claims to art-world fame. "Closely Considered - Diebenkorn" in Berkeley follows up on the recent major show by the California painter at the deYoung Museum, with smaller shows at the College of Marin and San Jose State University. This show, curated by Berkeley painter Jan Wurm, focuses on works on paper from Diebenkorn's Berkeley years, 1953-1966, some never exhibited before, along with works by contemporary Bay Area Figurationists Elmer Bischoff, Joan Brown, Frank Lobdell, Nathan Oliveira, David Park, and James Weeks.

Hundreds of People Join Us For Skeletonfest

More than 300 superheroes, Draculas, witches, princesses and more came to make art and celebrate the multicultural traditions of Halloween and Day of the Dead at last Saturday's Skeletonfest. Kids, parents, grandparents and community members spent a fun afternoon coloring and constructing paper masks, learning about Mexican paper cutting and making cool paper creations, designing movable skeletons and decorating sugar skulls with colored frostings and adornments and screen printing T-shirts!

A huge thank you to our team of amazing volunteers who made a whopping 300 sugar skulls and helped decorate the Art Center with cut-paper banners, Mexican paper flowers, painted skulls and, of course, skeletons. And a hearty thanks to our instructors - Lauren Ari, Lisa di Prima, Monica Gyulai, Kiki Rostad and Joyce Shon - who helped lead the days activities.
