Tiffanie Turner’s upcoming Solo Exhibition is featured within California Homes, in the April 2019 edition.
ELEANOR HARWOOD GALLERY- San Francisco “What Befell Us” is a new body of large scale botanical sculpture created by Bay Area artist and author Tiffanie Turner. This new work is a continuation of Turner’s meditations on our tolerance of aging and imperfection, on what we consider ugly and what we consider beautiful, and on the high costs to our society and our natural environment of these pursuits.
Brain Alfred sits down with artists and musicians in galleries and their studios to discuss their process and inspiration in their creative life.

Drift and slope. William Swanson’s new paintings are deceptively easy to like. His exhibition “Florascape,” at Eleanor Harwood Gallery through Dec. 15 (1275 Minnesota St., S.F. http://eleanorharwood.com), feels a bit like a walk through a mirror universe to ours, a place where nature is somehow mathematically rationalized.

The 6-foot-wide “Alumina Drift” takes center stage among 11 semi-abstract landscapes that fairly glow with a light of crystalline purity. It sets us at the edge of a vast scene of mountain and lake — a vista of what lies before us and also, impossibly, above us, held aloft by a network of misty ribbons. In “Operational Slope” we glide among structures made up of no more than lines and wings, above a broad valley.

An implied grid underlies every picture, bringing rigid structure to what was wild. To propose that the world can be so controlled is not the same as to say that it is safe.

Coded, Recent Weavings by Kira Dominguez Hultgren
Eleanor Harwood Gallery welcomes San Francisco based art writer Leora Lutz for an Critic in Residence project on Saturdays June 9 and June 16 from 11 am to 5pm.
Leora Lutz has written an essay to coincide with our current solo exhibition, Wingspan by Kira Dominguez Hultgren. The essay prompts readers to assess weaving as a kind of code – akin to language and in conversation with various forms of technology. Visitors may come at any time during the above listed hours to see the work and dig deeper into Dominguez Hultgren’s materials and methods, or for conversation about art and life. Lutz looks forward to engaging with you and the art, and rethinking the roles of art galleries, educators and critics.
Lutz has been writing about art since 2005, and most extensively since 2012 for numerous online and print publications including SFAQ, Art Practical, artltd., Surface Design Journal, Elephant and Art News. She is the founder of Glossary Magazine (nontraditional art reviews) and its imprint Glossary Syndicate, a publisher of workbooks for writers, thinkers and dreamers.
DeWitt Cheng’s editorial review on Visual Art Source provides insight and understanding to Kira Dominguez Hultgren’s body of work in Wingspan.

Kirk Maxson’s remarkable work with foliage and flowers is apart of Shelburne Museum’s exhibition ‘In the Garden’. His piece, Gwen, is an homage to the late LGBTQ Gwen Amber Rose Araujo who was killed for being transgender.
“Eighty percent of Earth’s plants produce eye-catching, fragrant flowers to attract insects, which in turn act as pollinators. Over the course of millennia, these symbiotic relationships have resulted in the evolution of an endless array of colors and shapes of both flowers and insects. Featuring fine art, textiles, jewelry, and the bodies of actual insects, this exhibition explores the various ways flowers and bugs have captivated artists’ imaginations over the last five centuries.”
