San Francisco & Oakland - Two Art Shows, Two Contrasting Styles

Since my new black light pieces are about San Francisco and Oakland, I decided to exhibit them in both cities. 111 Minna Gallery & Love Potion Collective are very unique art venues. Each exhibit space has its own style and charm.

 The 111 Minna Gallery show “Art in a Different Light” was a retro-inspired black light event, as well as a special tribute to David Bowie, who just passed away. Gallery-goers could experience 2D and 3D art pieces, which were a reinvention of the psychedelic black light art scene of the 60s and 70s with a contemporary twist. The art show was accompanied by live performances and music.

Love Potion Collective’s “Fluorescent/Luminescent” party offered a vibrant participatory art experience in the American Steel warehouse. The venue was filled with all forms of art. The Burning Man artists installed a cozy pillow lounge under their gorgeous metal art Amphora that was glowing in different LED light patterns. In the gallery was a bouncing dance floor that was packed with UV-reactive art and attendants were painting a fluorescent community mural.
