Blak Sage Gallery Hosts New Exhibit

Local artists featured at downtown exhibit

“Materiality: Interpretations in Wood, Metal, Glass & Clay”, an exhibition featuring the work of 12 local and regional artists, will be on view from January 18- March 1st at the Blak Sage Gallery, 727 San Benito St., downtown Hollister. The gallery is open Wed. & Thurs. from 9-1 pm, Friday 1-6 pm, and Sat. 12-5, and is also open by appointment.

Presented by the San Benito County Arts Council, “Materiality” invites viewers to explore the visceral nature of art and the ways in which all forms of art, even works on paper, must take on a 3-dimensional form. By focusing at the physicality of art, visitors can look beyond the image or “what it is” and discover the raw materials, the lines, curves and structure that bring art into form in the first place.

Come celebrate these artists and their work by joining us from 6-8 pm, Friday, February 1st for the public art reception and First Friday event. Music & light refreshments will be served.

This exhibition is part of the San Benito County Arts Council’s mission to promote art and culture in San Benito County and is made possible through a partnership with Jim and Deborah Wood, as well as by funds from the California Arts Council and Community Foundation for San Benito County.
