111 Minna Gallery is pleased to present their latest project, ‘POOLSIDE’ featuring the works of over 60 prolific Bay Area artists.
‘Poolside’ will be a summertime/fun time full gallery extension of our widely popular ‘Sketch Tuesday’ event. ’Sketch Tuesday’ is a live drawing event where artists create work on an affordable smaller scale for the public to appreciate and purchase. ‘Poolside’ will be a full exhibition of already finished works featuring many of our regular ‘Sketch Tuesday’ participants and 111 Minna Gallery artists featuring nearly two hundred pieces created on a smaller scale (Sketch Tuesday size) that will be affordable to the public.
Just as our ‘Sketch Tuesday’ events feature professional artists of all media and career levels mixed with artists pursuing different professional trades (but still avid artists). ‘Poolside’ will also provide the same community based atmosphere for all to enjoy!

The Bedford Gallery presents “About Face,” a juried and invitational exhibition, continues the fascinating tradition of creating portraits, using a contemporary lens to speculate how future generations might perceive the way we value beauty, power, and ultimately what we hold culturally significant.
The practice of creating portraits dates back nearly 12,000 years to the Neolithic era. What began as plastered human skulls has evolved into paintings, photographs, and sculpture that not only capture the likeness of an individual, but also provide clues about the cultural and societal context in which the person lived.
Participating Artists: Donna Anderson Kam, Charles Antolin, Piotr Antonow, Brandin Barón-Nusbaum, Carlos Gamez de Francisco, Linda Belden, Angelique Benicio, Ashlie Benton, Robin Bernstein, Kim Brewer, Donna Brown, Jamie Burnside, Dorothy Butts-Lo Bue, Carolina Caples, John Casey, Jane Cavala, Bora Choi, Susan Cole, Travis Collinson, Linda Craighead, Nimisha Doongarawl, Cheryl Drake, Katie Drum, Azma Elham, Beth Fein, Jane Fisher, Lisa Franklin, Bushra Gill, Carla Golder, Elizabeth Gorek, Julie Grantz, Ema H.

WOW x WOW is incredibly proud to present Mystical Rhythms. Opening on wowxwow.com on 2nd December 2022 and running until 23rd December 2022, the exhibition features over 70 incredible original artworks by more than 60 super talented international artists.
Mystical: [adjective] spiritually significant or symbolic; allegorical.
Rhythm: [noun] an effect of ordered movement in a work of art, literature, drama, etc. attained through patterns in the timing, spacing, repetition, accenting, etc. of the elements.
The creation of any work of art undoubtedly embodies something of the mystical. The essence of what is channelled from the artist’s mind is truly what lies within the marks made during creation. Personified with the unique psychic relevance of the individual, the finished work stands as a symbolic representation of the thoughts, feelings and emotions of the artist. While striving to build an engaging compostion, the creator utilises movement within lines, shapes, colour, brushstrokes, light, and space to inject motion and flow into the piece. With this, our final exhibition of 2022, we wish to celebrate the wonders of these ‘Mystical Rhythms’.The entire exhibition can now be accessed via the link below. All sales will be on a first come, first served basis. Purchases can be made through the website, either with a debit/credit card or via PayPal. In the unlikely event that you encounter any issues, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be very happy to assist.
