Tract: Hughen/Starkweather presents in three exhibitions the solo work of Jennifer Starkweather and Amanda Hughen alongside the collaborative work of Hughen/Starkweather. Their work encompasses both the macro – a large extent of land, and the micro – a nerve system within a human body, transcending the idea of scale.
San Marco Gallery
Saturday November 16
Work by Amanda Hughen and Jennifer Starkweather will be on display in Tract, November 7 through December 17 in San Marco Gallery, Dominican University of California’s Alemany Library, 185 Palm Avenue, San Rafael.
There will be an Artists Talk on Monday, November 11, from 6:30-7:30 PM and an Opening Reception for Tract on Saturday, November 16, from 4-6 PM in Alemany Library.
As collaborators, Hughen and Starkweather have explored a variety of systems and places, and the visual patterns created through the analysis of this data. This includes traffic at airports (vehicular, airplane, freight, people) and most recently in their Bay Bridge Project, the various usages of the eastern span of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge. Their mixed-media artworks consider the architecture, engineering, weather, and traffic.
Have you been wondering what Kris Lang, former digital imager at Electric Works, is up to now? Even though hanging out with her growing kids is more than a full-time job, she has kept her hand in the art world in a very active way. Over the past year, she has been doing photo retouching and digital printmaking at the studio of Leo vanMunching. This weekend you will have a chance to have a look into his studio thanks to ArtSpan’s Open Studios. Come see his large-format documents of San Francisco architecture and intimate portraits of this city’s residents at Open Studios this weekend at 754 Clementina St., from 11-6 on Saturday and Sunday.
