Board and Room in a Mushroom
Featured artist Olga Ponomarenko
Opening reception: Saturday, June 9, 2018 * 6p-9p




For this exhibit, artist Olga Ponomarenko’s second featured spot, we will be treated to small meditative paintings of animals. This playful show explores how urbanization damages wilderness and forces wild animals to adapt to a citified existence.

Her paintings speak of the the ephemeral joys of daily life and are set within the ordinary doldrums of human existence. All of Olga’s paintings will be housed within a handmade and hand painted decorative mushroom frame.

Olga will be joined by a wonderful group of artists that will also explore how animals discover magic within the mundane of human existence.

Participating artists: Douglas Alvarez, Joe Alvarez, Ulla Anobile, Terri Berman, Skye Becker-Yamakawa, Nancy Cintron, Nancy Cintron, Bob Doucette, Corrie Gregory, Annette Hassell, Lori Herbst, e. ipolani, Ilaamen, Inga Lena, Anita Inverarity, Lydia Moon Hee Kim, Lisa Kurt, Mavis Leahy, Kahla Lewis, Malathip, Nichol Norman, Janet Olenik, Raul Pizarro, Tania Pomales, Myriam Powell, Kathleen Powers, Johnny Quintanilla, Bobby Rojas, Mable Song, Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman, Joe Vollan, Michelle Waters, Holly Wood and Gabriela Zapata.
