DANA Hemenway, All That Glows Sees

Sept. 10 - Oct. 29, 2016
Eleanor Harwood Gallery, San Francisco


Another solo show takes us back across the Bay to Eleanor Harwood Gallery’s new home inside 1275 Minnesota Street. Using materials both utilitarian and exquisite, Dana Hemenway’s sculptures oscillate between art objects and functional home decorating items. Playing with design sensibilities and questions of value, Hemenway’s work challenges viewers to examine the boundaries between art and functional object, all while identifying lamps (or light bulbs) as the eyes of a home, ever watchful of a home’s inhabitants.
