In today’s fidgety world of Photoshop and Facebook, it is easy to forget the power, immediacy and profound reality of painting. The oils of Annette Aust, an artist born in Austria and educated in Berkeley and Vienna, bring art lovers back to the land of texture and substance. Her work will be featured for two weeks, beginning with an opening the evening of July 7, 2011 at the Wiggle Gallery in SOMA.

“Works in this exhibit stand as a record of the fascinating mind and physical gestures of Annette Aust,” said Geoff Gibson, co-owner of Winder Gibson Architects. “Bold, yet playful—art lovers will fall in love with her extraordinary, luscious works on canvas.”

The San Francisco art exhibit opening is scheduled for Thursday, July 7 from 7 to 9 pm. Guests will be able to view about a dozen oils while they enjoy wine and cheese and conversations with the artist. The exhibit of these works, painted both here and in Europe, will remain open for 2 weeks after the opening during the weekday hours of 10 am to 6 pm.

San Francisco residential architects John Winder and Geoff Gibson are known to open the front of their design studio to members of the Bay Area and international art community.
