Partners Gallery is proud to present three California artists selected for a juried show on artistic responses to our current cultural conditions. The show is curated by Amy Berk of the San Francisco Art Institute where she has taught ”City as Studio Practicum” to SFAI students and similar programs for under served youth.
Christopher Chinn’s paintings are inspired by the marginalized and dispossessed of Los Angeles and he has dedicated his artwork to sharing compassion for the homeless and a desire for social change. Christopher’s work has been included in numerous national exhibitions including MOCA and the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.
Brianna Eng focuses on the value of genuine relationship and human connectedness. She creates business cards and postcards that invite understanding and allow for being heard and reaching back in part through using paper that is touched by both the communicating individuals.
Barbara Pollak-Lewis’ “Scream” and “Disaster” series depict reactions to our current political and social climate since the 2016 election, including the California wildfires and other environmental disasters. Emotions have always been a major component of her work.
