Art Show runs through Monday, April 30, 2012 in our upstairs Mike Kelley Gallery.
Open Friday 11 am - 6 pm, Saturday & others by appointment.
ROBERT BRANAMAN's tremendous body of work includes etchings, paintings, films, books and most recently a series of limited edition digital/traditional prints. Bob was one of the innovative artists showing at the legendary Batman Gallery in San Francisco and was part of Michael McClure’s play !The Feast! performed there. His paintings were prominently featured in Oliver Stone’s film The Doors. His films include Ginsberg (1966) and Goldmouth (1965), starring LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI. He presently lives and works in Santa Monica.
A graduate of CSULB with an MFA in Studio Art, TODD A. SMITH constructs faux books made from wood that address aspects of popular culture, history, science and religion. His creative process begins with an idea that he gleans from personal experiences and interactions with radio, television, books and pop culture. He transforms these ideas into book titles and screen-prints them onto wooden books. Todd places some of these books in libraries; some are transformed into “pop-ups” while others are constructed into columns or small “still-life’s.” Todd also has a series of drawings and prints that expand on the transitory nature of the traditional book and what its content has to offer in the way of knowledge and imagination.
"Mother Earth", a special serigraph series of four different landscapes and earthly delights and insights hand-made by ROBERT BRANAMAN, will be available for $25 each at the reception on April 7th.
