Kala Gallery – Thursday August 18, 2011 at 7:00 pm.
Kala’s Fellowship program includes an annual series of artists talks presented by current Fellows during their studio residencies. Kala’s nine Fellows for 2010-2011 were selected by Kala Directors in association with juror Jens Hoffman, Director of the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art at California College of the Arts. This is the fourth in the series of artists’ talks presented by our Fellows.
The talk is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Elisheva Biernoff‘s work investigates the notions of myths, fictions and fantasies coupled with the adventures and quests of heros and explorers. Her work in painting, sculpture and installation meshes sophisticated craftsmanship with a sly edge of humor. Elisheva attended Yale, Slade School of Fine Art in London and received her MFA from California College of the Arts. Her work has been presented in the Bay Area at Triple Base Gallery, Pro Arts and Headlands Center for the Arts. Elisheva will be discussing her new work to be featured in the exhibition Residency Projects II, which opens at Kala Gallery on September 8th.
Zachary Royer Scholz interacts with everyday objects, sites and situations to create sculpture that is rooted in conceptualism and post-minimalist aesthetics. His work is simultaneously off-handed, playful and humorous yet thoughtful, subtle and carefully considered. Zachary received his MA and MFA from California College of the Arts. His work has been presented in the Bay Area at Baer Ridgway Gallery, NOMA Gallery, CCA’s Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, The Intersection and Mission 17. He recently completed a residency and exhibition at Recology in San Francisco. Zachary’s work will also be presented in Residency Projects II.
