Redwood City, CA – Blooming; an art exhibit at The Main Gallery, features artists Susan G. Fast along with Elisabeth Gomez, and showcases a fresh perspective on spring. The show opens Wednesday, February 12th, and runs through Sunday, March 16th.
The Main Gallery, located at 1018 Main Street in Redwood City, will be hosting a free opening reception with both artists on Saturday, February 15th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Here is a small sampling of what you will find at The Main Gallery’s Blooming exhibit:
The colorful and textural jewelry by artist Susan G. Fast reflects her view of spring. Selecting interplay between colors and textures, Fast employs victorian elements of fabric, gemstones, and vintage glass to create “new and bold from tarnished and old.” Fast says her Blooming show work expresses the onset of spring with “color, new life, and fresh perspective.” She explains that her work, like spring, goes through a metamorphosis and “changes from its original state to form into an entirely new creation.”
The brightly colored, folksy paintings of mixed media artist Elizabeth Gomez convey a somewhat utopic coexistence between women and their environment. Gomez describes her decorative style as “honest and direct, like that of hand-made crafts, with the use of over-embellishment and space-flattening pattern.” For Blooming, Gomez exhibits whimsical, happy images where both a girl and flowers bloom in spring. Gomez believes that “springtime is hope: it is a new chance at life. What is dormant wakes up and is ready to shine in beauty.”
