ANNOUNCING 2ND OPEN CALL: Present Ground
Deadline EXTENDED September 4, 2016
Hayes Valley Art Works is pleased to present What Century Are These Paintings From: New Works By Paulette Humanbeing. Join us for the opening reception on August 26, 2016 from 5-7pm. The exhibition will be on view from August 26 – September 24, 2016.
Paulette will be exhibiting paintings of dogs, the Hayes Valley Artworks lot, and two presidents. Also shown will be production art from the Jeffrey Vallance Interview Film, a painting of the Los Angeles skyline, a painting of a liquor store in Oakland, a painting of 22nd street in San Francisco, and her painting of a Thomas Kinkaide painting.
Her paintings are a mixture of studio work and plein air work, done in oil paint. Paulette hopes to show beauty in the things she paints, regardless of how unpleasant a subject may be. For instance, she painted a stuffed dog that isn’t really beautiful, but the paintings of the dog are beautiful, portraying it favorably like when you get the pimples taken out of your high school senior year photos. She hopes that her paintings are lies that tell some kind of truth, like Picasso is quoted as saying except in different words.
Join us for the opening reception this coming Friday and then attend the performance of Hamlet afterwards!
