Jamie Bates Slone: Projections, 2012-2014

Projected onto life size, coil built figures, are a series of macro images of my casted work. The projections engulf and overwhelm the figures, as do my anxieties and fears for my health, the health of loved ones and cancer itself.

Christine Golden: When We Are Kids, 2012-2013

This series focuses on specific issues we learn about when we are children, and how we react to these same issues as we age based on the way we were taught. Some of the issues I have explored within this series are gender roles, sexuality, and women’s rights.

Children are like sponges and what we learn or are exposed to will effect our ideas as adults, sometimes in rejection of but usually in adherence to the ideals we were taught. The children I sculpt are often pensive or somber and confront the viewer with their gaze. Their expressions are captured in a psychological portrait that solemnly expresses the enormity of their journey ahead.

Christine Golden: You, Me, This and That, 2011-2014

This series encompasses several different types of relationships and varies from piece to piece. Some of the sculptures in this series focus on the relationship between people and the environment. For example, our general disconnect with nature, excessive consumption, and the earths’ retaliation. Other sculptures focus on the relationships we can form with objects or an accumulation of material goods. This can, but does not always relate back to our connection to the environment.

Beverly Mayeri is a studio artist living in the Bay Area with over 30 years experience as an established ceramic sculptor. She earned a BA from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MA in sculpture at San Francisco State University.

Mayeri works with refined and elegant heads and figures often using meticulously patterned details that allude to the inner life of emotions, thoughts and human frailties. The pieces are painted in washes of acrylic paint. Mayeri’s figures “evoke a richly complicated human presence,”and often “bridge the psychological, the political and the sensuous within one hybrid form.”
