Content Matters at MarinMOCA

Sat, Jun 15, 2019 6:30 PM Sun, Aug 4, 2019 7:30 PM
“Content Matters” Summer National Juried Exhibition

June 15 – August 4, 2019,

Reception: June 15, 5 – 7pm

THEME

Content Matters: “Content” is the meaning conveyed by a piece of artwork – a message portrayed through images, symbols, marks, or stylistic treatment. Content communicates the artist’s point of view, their thoughts, beliefs and experiences, and it creates a response on the part of the viewer. 2D or 3D artwork will be accepted in any medium. We are interested in what you have to say through your artwork.



JUROR Jack Fischer

This exhibit will be juried by well-known San Francisco gallerist Jack Fisher, who has been exhibiting artists for over 15 years. According to Mr. Fischer, "The work I exhibit is from the heart and the gut.” Jack Fischer Gallery shows work from a diverse group of artists working in many genres including contemporary, visionary, self-taught, and intuitive. As the gallery’s program has expanded, the emphasis has evolved from a strictly overarching interest in narrative work to include both abstraction and conceptual work. The gallery has two locations in San Francisco, allowing space for more exhibitions, new artists, and the continued cultivation of artists who have been with the gallery for many years.

PAINTING TODAY: POPULAR CULTURE AND VISUAL LITERACY

Instructor: Lauren Jade Szabo
8 Sessions »Thursdays, June 20-August 15

Through hands on demonstrations, studio practice, and one-on-one tutoring, students will develop a body of work demonstrating traditional and contemporary approaches within the media of painting. In our contemporary landscape over-saturated with images, painting is ever relevant with a strong history of power, representation, and propaganda in cultures all over the world. During this course, we will practice technical rigor as well as communication by way of image and text relationships in an open dialogue. Individual portfolio progress will be emphasized.
