Katherine Westerhout on KQED's Spark

Oakland Train Station by Katherine Westerhout

Electric Works’ gallery artist Katherine Westerhout will be appearing on Spark on KQED on April 1, 2009 at 7:30PDT.

The show focuses on Westerhout’s “Abandonment” series and will follow her on a photoshoot at a train station in west Oakland. Westerhout then returns to Electric Works to perform color correction with Kris Shapiro in our studio.

"All Over Coffee" vs. Electric Works

Many of you know that Electric has been publishing Paul Madonna’s prints for quite some time.  He’s also had a solo show here and been in two group shows.  During that time he got to know E-dub’s head honcho Richard Lang pretty well.

After learning of each other’s interest in walking the City streets, the two decided to collaborate on a project.  In case you missed it (it was in last week’s Pink), we’ve got an image of it here. Image by Madonna, text by Lang.

Stay tuned for some sneak peaks at Paul’s new “Album” project, coming from Electric Works this fall.

Here and Around Town on Thursday

Readers! Judy North opens this Friday at Electric Works.  Lyrical, large-scale paintings fill the gallery.  It’s one of the those double-interest shows: on one hand there’s a great deal of technique in the painting, and on the other, there is great narrative content.  So with this balance we’re really pleased with the show.

Even though the opening is on Friday, we will be open on Thursday, the 5th from 6-8pm, for first Thursday.

The opening reception is on Friday,  March 13 from 6-8. Confusing?  Sorry!

About town on this upcoming Thursday (March 5, 2009), we’ve got two artists  showing at venues other than Electric Works. So when you’re done stopping by here on Thursday evening, give these other places a visit, too.

Jason Jägel at 111 Minna. Gallery artist Jason Jägel is showing in a group show at 111 Minna. See announcement below. For those of you who haven’t yet ordered a monograph of Jason’s, they will be available at the opening or you can order them from our store.

And E’Dub employee Jessica Skloven is having her first solo exhibition at Togonon Gallery at 49 Geary on the same night. Here are two images from the announcement.
