Another Mis-en-scene (Review)

Country Club presents a witty installation of Michael Lowe’s collection

0 Comments · Monday, January 10, 2011
'Another Mis-en-scene' is an exhibition curated by local art collector Michael Lowe and is comprised almost entirely of art, antiquities and innovative design objects from his own collection. Such an exhibition handled less gracefully could read as a business-minded jumbled lot at an auction house. But Lowe treats these selections from his collection as an installation and his savvy sense of humor connects all of the pieces.

Country Club affirms the relevance of the handmade

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 7, 2010
With more than 25 artists, Country Club's current exhibition serves as a massive visual "think tank" that questions the relevance of traditional art methods (the painstaking use of physical materials and handmade objects) in a world where life increasingly is experienced through mass-produced items and virtual communications. 'Pictures and Statues' continues through July 31.

In a first for the galleries, Country Club's Oakley and Los Angeles locations chose to present an exhibition concurrently, painter Fritz Chesnut's 'Peak and Flow,' offering different pieces from the same series. His new abstract paintings radiate a definite West Coast vibe, and they're on view locally through May 29.  

Shapeshifter (Review)

Local and regional shapeshifters artfully manipulate ordinary resources

In Country Club's current group show, much of the work is flat-out beautiful, while what isn't is still rewarding because it gives you plenty to think about. The show, continuing through April 10, resonates from artist to artist and is a pleasure to explore.  

The Hunted and the Hunters

Aaron Morse and others offer animals and historical references with a twist

Having Country Club's West End gallery space in walking distance of my home was a luxury I didn’t fully appreciate until it moved across town to Oakley. But while it's now further away from downtown and many like-minded arts organizations, it is worth the trek.

The young blonde girl in the photograph looks perplexed. She's standing in front of a bus called "Willie's Wiener Wagon," which is plastered with signs that read, 'If You Don't Support Victory, You Don't Support Our Troops" and "Proud to be an American." Cheryl Dunn, who took the photograph during the Bush years, doesn't flinch from the gritty, difficult side of life, as suggested by the title of her current show, 'Spit & Peanut Shells: American Pictures,' at Country Club gallery.
