The Desperate Living Room

Listen up you harlots, trollops, dirt bags and sleaze balls! We are proud and disgusted to share with you the most tasteless and trashy group show of 2018! The Desperate Living Room, a tribute to the work of JOHN WATERS is opening on February 3rd at Somewhere Else To Go art space! 

For decades John Waters has disturbed and delighted audiences with his unorthodox cinema and now we are paying tribute to his masterful mind by presenting a portrait show to top all portrait shows!! Without a doubt, this group of artists is our most skilled, fearless and as we mentioned- ALL FEMALE.

Cultivation: New Works by Tallulah Terryll Opening Reception

Opening reception for our first exhibition of the year: new paintings by Oakland artist Tallulah Terryll.

"Lately I find myself spending more and more time tending to my plants. Maintaining a healthy little ecosystem in my space has been a pleasant contrast to the craziness of the world outside. House plants may not sustain you like growing food or crops, but they do provide a comforting sense of keeping one’s house in order. 

“Cultivate” is a series of paintings combining flat, graphic silhouettes of my plants with abstracted, all-over textures found on walks or hikes in nature. In these paintings, as in life, the background is something I don’t always have total control over. Each pattern originates with a detail from photos I’ve taken of plants growing in the wild. I try to push both the abstraction of the leafy forms and my methods of application until they become unpredictable. The colorful domestic plants in the foreground, on the other hand, are rendered with simplicity and precision – speaking to the modest but essential satisfaction of tending daily to another flourishing life."

Exhibition will run from February 10th through March 31st. Opening reception February 10th 6pm-9pm.

Totally Rad Gallery is located at 1212 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley CA 94706. See our website for more details https://www.totallyradgallery.com/

Two Timely Totally Rad Shows On San Pablo Ave Saturday Night!

 A group art show focused on the paradox of time. 

Time passes for every single individual. We all experience time moving but our perception of time is all different. A particular moment to one person can feel as if they're pushing through molasses watching particles of dust standing dead still in the air and to another that exact moment might slip by to the point of causing their head to spin. As we age it seems we're standing still and time is pushing into us. We all feel the crushing weight of the minute hand determining our very fates. Yet we don't look at the paradox of time. If physics is right that would mean our perception is wrong and that there simply is no flow of time. 11:11 one minute in time happening hundreds of times over but this one is here for you to slow down, breathe and make it count.
