FRAGMENTS, EDGES, & AMBIGUITIES

New Harrington Gallery Exhibit; Artists’ Reception February 28

 

PLEASANTONCalif— The City of Pleasanton’s Harrington Gallery, located inside the Firehouse Arts Center, announces its next major exhibition entitled “Fragments, Edges, & Ambiguities.”  Roaming the boundaries between realistic and abstract, the installation features the work of five Bay Area artists and “celebrates both the imperfection and surprise of nature and man-made forms,” notes Firehouse staff member Alena Sauzade.  The exhibition will be on view to the public from March 1 through April 6 during regular gallery hours, as well as during intermissions for ticket holders to Firehouse Arts Center Theater shows and concerts. 

The artists:  Taryn Curiel (watercolor), Dan Lythcott-Haims (photography), Jane Peterman (ceramic sculpture), Yucali Seki (mixed media), and Cindy Stokes (photography).

The exhibit opens with an Artists’ Reception in the gallery on Thursday, February 28, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. The public is welcome to come explore the works, meet and chat with the artists, and enjoy light refreshments.  A donation of $5.00 is suggested.

YOUNG @ ART: “Fragments!” is a special class connected to the exhibit for young people ages 5-11.  Thursday, March 28, from 4:30-5:45 p.m.  Participants will have a guided exploration of the exhibit, then create their own work of art in the studio workshop upstairs.  Register at www.pleasantonfun.com, code 12012.  The fees are $18 for Pleasanton residents, and $21 for non-residents. 

The Harrington Gallery is located inside the Firehouse Arts Center in downtown Pleasanton, 4444 Railroad Avenue.  Regular gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m., and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Closed on holidays.  Free parking is available in the Firehouse lot, entrance on Spring Street.  For more information on gallery exhibits and events, please visit www.firehousearts.org/gallery, or call 925-931-4849.
