8/3 – 8/24/2012: The World Saving Device

The Hive Gallery in Oakland, CA, curator Obi Kaufmann, and designer Jason Kulp are pleased to present “The World Saving Device: Oakland Art, 250 Years from Now.” Ten Oakland painters and illustrators come together in this wildly imaginative show to explore the metaphor of a world that needs saving. The gallery will be transformed to resemble a cave, a proto-cathedral, or some sort of intergalactic womb. Participating Artists: Jon Carling, John Casey, Ernest Doty, Thomas Christopher Haag, Obi Kaufmann, Lauren Napolitano, Nathaniel Parsons, David Polka, David Seiler, and Gina Tuzzi. Show pics here.
