The Art of Living Black Exhibition
Exhibition runs through February 27
Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm
Sunday, noon - 5 pm
Free + Open to the Public
Reception: Sat, Feb. 7 from 2 - 5 pm.

The Art of Living Black was founded 19 years ago by the late sculptor Jan Hart-Schuyers and late painter Rae Louise Hayward after their realization that black artists were not being represented by galleries in any significant way. It continues to be the Bay Area's only annual exhibition that features regional artists of African American descent. This year's exhibition showcases works by 75 artists.

Yisrael K. Feldsott: Annunciating Obscurities

Exhibition runs through March 7
Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm
Sunday, noon - 5 pm
Free + Open to the Public
Reception: Sat, Feb. 7 from 2 - 5 pm.

Mixed-media works from the 1970s to the present that showcase this visionary artist's ability to push the formal potentials of disparate materials to portray the gamut of the human experience -- death, violence, and survival.

While in his early 20s, Feldsott attracted the attention of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art curator Rolando Castellon, and became one of the youngest artists featured at that institution in 1979. Feldsott then turned his back on the art world and went on a spiritual quest that led him to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, to Guatemala, and to the Amazon in Brazil.

Feldsott immersed himself in the traditions of indigenous communities in Central and South America, championed environmental issues and studied with indigenous people for over 20 years. He became a student of traditional medicine, a teacher, healer and most of all a visual allegorist. In 2002, Feldsott reevaluated the importance of showing his work -- how sharing his visual enunciations creates a cultural dialogue -- and resumed exhibiting his work.
