Sausalito CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2016
A new contemporary fine art gallery, Toad Fish, opens this weekend in downtown Sausalito and will feature the work of sixteen local artists. The work includes abstract paintings, works on paper, and sculpture from talented emerging and mid-career Sausalito artists.
Co-owner Taryn Hoppe, who is part of the local family-run business that bought the historical building with the intention of restoring it to its original condition, explained why the Toad Fish opening is important. “Sausalito has always had a thriving artists’ community. Toad Fish allows it to expand further by welcoming a greater number of artists who work in an abstract format and providing them a valuable footprint in the thriving downtown corridor. It’s a refreshing venue for both new and established talent."
Gallery Director Loura Brooks emphasized that the show has been carefully curated. “The artists featured here have exhibited and are in collections worldwide. Sausalito is home to amazing talent!” Ms. Brooks most recently developed conceptual and interpretive frameworks for the design of the new Papalote Museo del Nino in Mexico City, which opens in July 2016. She has been a lecturer and tutor in art history for more than 20 years.
The gallery features the following Sausalito artists:
Leslie Allen, Susan Aulik, Rick Begnaud, Christopher Chaffin, Cynthia Duncan, Emily Dvorin, Terri Froelich, Brian Huber, Marta Johansen, Kathryn Keller, Margaret Moench, Aiko Morioka, Georgette Osserman, Dani Roach, Darcy Sears, Mimi Chen Ting, Louise Victor, and Deborah Adams Wilton.
The opening reception takes place this Saturday, March 19, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. For more information, visit http://toad-fish.com/featured-artists/.
