You weekend: Found art
Are you one of those folks who sees art everywhere? Well, if you’re hopping around the Island this week, you may literally do just that. In some places, at least.
Autobody Fine Art opens its latest exhibit, “Zeitgeist,” Friday night. And as part of the exhibit (and the gallery’s running tradition of really cool opening night fun), they’ll be leaving works of art on the streets of Alameda for people to find and take home.
“In a gesture similar to the manifestoes of Dada and Arte Povera, these artworks are free to those that encounter and adopt them,” a description of the exhibit on Autobody’s website says.
Separately, they’ll open the show with a reception, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday. The show is up through September 6.
“Zeitgeist” is curated by Zsuzsanna Laszlo and features the work of 14 artists, including the line drawings of Victor Salazar, photos by Matthew Ariquistain and the work of José Luis Andrade León, which is influenced by Mexican muralists.
Other featured artists are Tony Hoang, Apryl-Joy M Pascua, Brian Edwards, Justin Reece, Pamela Harris, Rene Mijares, Carol Faber, Kris Newell, Roberto Alvarado, Tom Lloyd and Laszlo.
Here’s a description of the exhibit from Autobody’s website:
The exhibited artworks describe these artists through their culture, emotions, diverse subject matter and imagination. Images range from the intimate to the epic and allow the viewer to perceive and interpret according to their own criteria.
Autobody is at 1517 Park Street, and their phone number is 865-2608. Hours are noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
