I am excited to see that Forgotten Modernism and Super Sonic artist Michael Murphy has joined forces with Melissa Arendt for a new exhibition of contemporary art at San Francisco’s 111 Minna Gallery. The opening reception is Friday night (September 5, 2014), and the show will run through September 27, 2014.
I’m a fan of Michael Murphy in particular. He is best known for his Forgotten Modernism series, which acknowledges San Francisco’s Eichler homes as well as interpreting many of San Francisco’s architectural gems with a modernistic twist. Recently he has expanded his work to include architecture of Los Angeles and Palm Springs.
Melissa Arendt is new on my personal radar. She is a Sacramento girl who creates what she describes as “aesthetic parties” by juxtaposing elements of color and design into some pretty interesting artwork that often resembles a contemporary version of a patchwork quilt.
Tectonic Array promises to be a visually exciting exhibition; and I encourage you all to come meet the artists at the opening reception Friday night – or at least make time in your schedule for a trip into the City to 111 Minna Gallery before the end of the month.
