Bill Samios opening reception

Come enjoy Bill Samios's new work on the 1 year anniversary evening of the Castro Art Walk.  We'll be serving bubbles for the special occasion, and Michael's Chocolates will be on hand to serve samples of their new flavors as well as their award winning staples.

Samios' latest show consists of abstracts that is a reaction to recent life-altering events portraying the intense emotions that arose.  The process includes a combination of brush strokes, squeegees swipes, pours, drips and splashes of paint keeping the medium very wet and strive to give up control and allow the element of chance to come into play.  Samios feels he has learned how to handle intense life events with more grace and playfulness through this process - something everyone can benefit from.

We see the strong connection to a modern Scandinavian aesthetic not only in the form but also in the color groupings.  The darker "colorless" abstracts are moody, dark and mysterious like the Scandinavian fall and winter seasons, while the pale blue and white grouping are light and enchanting like the Scandinavian spring and summer seasons.

CASTRO ART WALK

Dear Friends!

Experience the diverse artistic expressions our neighborhood
has to offer on the first Thursday of every month -  CASTRO ART WALK.

LAST CALL - show ends October 11.

Please join us for a glass of wine and view the paintings and drawings of Norden Living featured artist, Britta Kathmeyer.  She’ll present “Groundswell”, a series of abstract ink drawings, “in Silence”, featuring imaginary nordic landscapes, and a new series of minimal paintings of bowls.

About the Artist:
Britta Kathmeyer (born in Bremen, Germany, 1963) received a diploma in Textile Design from the College of Art and Design, Hannover, in 1988. She continued her studies in the U.S. on a Fulbright scholarship and graduated from the California College of the Arts, Oakland, with an MFA with high distinction in 1991.
For many years Britta worked as a textile designer in the Bay Area and at the same time exhibited her artwork in galleries in both Germany and the U.S. She has collaborated on various projects with artists and non-artists alike, including a public art project funded by the San Francisco Arts Commission. Since 2012 her focus has shifted to drawing and painting primarily using ink, coffee, matches and acrylics. Her intention is to create art that moves between ambiguity and revelation, and inspires contemplation and curiosity. Her work is influenced and guided by Eastern philosophy, the observation of nature, and often the inherent characteristics of the materials themselves.
She lives in Sonoma County.
