On The Horizon

Open Color presents Bok Joy

Christian Joy

Saturday November 12th, 6-10pm
RSVP on Facebook

Coming to San Francisco for the first time ever is Christian Joy's Bok Joy series. Composed of larger-than-life hanging soft sculptures and inspired by children's bop bags and the work of Japanese film director Hayoa Miyazaki, these "characters" are constructed from vibrantly colored fabrics and incorporate textile designs, drawing on Joy's experience as a costume designer. With this installation, her focus is on the independent movement of fabric. The opening event will also serve as the launch for the new San Francisco-based arts collective, Open Color - founded to bridge the divide between both underground and established creatives and the growing tech sector in the Bay Area.

B-Sides: Musicians as Photographers

Sean Yseult

Opening Saturday September 10th, 7-10pm
Gallery Hours Weds-Sat 3-7pm thru Sept 24th
By appointment thru Oct 1st

Heron Arts is pleased to present B-Sides, a group show curated by Sean Yseult (White Zombie) of nine photographers who usually can be found in the recording studio instead of the dark room. Each artist was chosen based upon their bizarre, beautiful or unexpected photography. Purposefully avoiding life on the road, or backstage rock shots, the photos are meant to show the other side of the musician, the B-side.

Jeff Greenspan, Andrew Tider

Showing thru June 30th

Heron Arts is pleased to present Captured: People In Prison Drawing People Who Should Be, the first exhibition featuring the drawings and paintings done by prison inmates, depicting corporate CEOs whose companies are accused of serious crimes. For over a year, Jeff Greenspan and Andrew Tider asked people in prison to paint or draw people the duo felt should be in prison – the CEOs of companies doing damage to our environment and economy. To help expose crimes masquerading as commerce, the project imagines those at the highest levels of corporate leadership being personally responsible for their companies' illegal actions. Captured: People In Prison Drawing People Who Should Be opens on Thursday May 26th, 2016 with an opening reception from 6-9pm and runs through June 30th, 2016.
