Group Exhibition – “Reset” @ Athen B. Gallery

Athen B. Gallery is pleased to present “Reset”, a group exhibition coming to Oakland January 14th featuring the works of twelve local, national and international artists. Some of the artists in the exhibition, like Augustine Kofie, Dave Kinsey and Duncan Jago, are considered to be veterans in the urban contemporary movement.

They will be hanging alongside emerging artists like Aubrey Learner, Christie Yuri Noh and Pakayla Rae. By hand selecting a diverse array of techniques, styles, and aesthetics, we have aimed to make this our most surreal exhibition to date. We’re excited to have Smithe, Pakayla Rae, Kelly Ording, Duncan Jago, Dave Kinsey, Curiot and Augustine Kofie joining us for the first time. We couldn’t be happier to welcome back Nicolas Romero, Martina Merlini, Jean Nagai and Aubrey Learner back for another exhibition at Athen B. Gallery in Downtown Oakland.

Be sure to check out the show on Saturday, January 14th at 7pm for the opening reception of “Reset”. They gallery is conveniently located in Downtown Oakland at 1525 Webster St. just off both 12th and 19th st Bart Stations. The exhibition will be on view through February 3, 2017.

Well known for his male characters, this piece is a milestone of his career and one of Smithe’s biggest murals located in his hometown. “Ella” is the title of the piece, which means “She” and portrayed the side face of a lady as a homage to all the hardworking, strong and independent women out there. – Enriqueta Arias | Photo credit: Francisco Betanzos
