What do Kerry and Cindy have in common?

I am thrilled that I get to show in the same building during the same time as Cindy Sherman! And it's fitting that Cindy has a piece of mine in her collection...I just wish I had a piece of hers in mine.

July 12 - August 21, 2012

Bay Area printmaker Kerry Vander Meer shows recent work that draws on images from everyday life. Household fixtures such as chandeliers and common items like shopping carts show up as silhouettes in brightly colored works where the negative space is as important as the positive.

Vander Meer, who teaches printmaking workshops in both California and Mexico, encourages viewers to consider how the space around the images creates what she calls "hidden treasure": "I look through, around, or underneath an organized clutter of (visual) information. Hopefully underneath that clutter exists a larger space of calm."

I grew up in Michigan and some of my best memories are of summers spent as a child chasing fire flies as they flitted across the damp grass in our backyard. So it was quite a surprise to discovered that no less than five members of the Mercury 20 Gallery hail from my home state. We decided to do a show...

We have added the corner property to our Mazatlan casa which is the new art studio and workshop space!!! The new addition used to be part of this 100+ year old house and I am thrilled to have it all together again. There is a sleeping loft above the studio for guests.   We look forward to your joining us in 2012.
