Gallery Route One exhibitions: Tania Houtzager: Melting Point, Lucid Art Residency Annual Exhibition 2017, and Marie-Luise Klotz: Equilibrium
Melting Point is a new body of work by Bay Area artist Tania Houtzager that depicts the fragility of memories and their relationship to the progress of global warming. Houtzager is Gallery Route One’s Senior Fellow for this year.
The Lucid Art Foundation encourages contemplative nonfigurative exploration through automatism, multi-media, conceptual, eco-art and interdisciplinary approaches. Artists are: Teresa Kalnoskas, Mikey Kelly, Lawrence LaBianca, Jo Margolis, Grace Munakata, Rachelle Reichert, Mary Robinson, Kathy Sirico, Petra Soesemann and poet David Bailey.
Equilibrium is Inspired by extreme weather events and a warming planet, this body of work contemplates the dichotomous nature of water. While water sustains life and is thus essential to our survival, it can take and give equally through its destructive force. Exacerbated by climate change and human intervention, water rests in an equilibrious state of creation and destruction. Klotz is Gallery Route One’s Emerging Artist for the 2017-18
