Material Illusions Exhibit at the Cabrillo Gallery runs from March 9 - April 10, 2015 with an opening reception on Saturday, March 7 from 5:30-7:00.
Working in materials ranging from the precious to the mundane these six artists, Cheryl Coon, Bella Feldman, Yvonne Escalante, Biagio Scarpello, Adon S. Valenziano and Lynda Watson challenge our ideas about materials. Their mediums include bronze, glass, porcelain, straws, steel, wood and wool. Their artwork deals with both intellectual and physical illusions while pushing vulnerable and precarious up next to aggressive and threatening. Nature versus machine is a common theme. Graceful, clumsy, humorous, even absurd; this artwork will tilt the viewers’ perspective.
The Cabrillo Gallery is open Monday - Friday from 9:00-4:00 and Monday and Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00
