Holiday Show: MORE IS MORE

December 1, 2017 – January 11, 2018

At a time of year when many people step away from daily routines, the holidays become a time of indulgence. Enjoying parties, family, travel, and food a bit too much during the holidays are not only widely accepted forms of excess, but also necessary for release, so indulge with Creative Growth as we celebrate all that is excessive, luxurious, and bold in our annual Holiday Show and Studio Sale.

In the exhibition More is More, ogle the opulent layers of beads, jewelry, and trinkets in Juan Aguilera‘s sculptural creations; gratify the desire for more in Paul Field‘s scenes, where sundry characters fill every inch of his drawn tableaux, or with the densely packed repetition of forms covering Ricardo Gaitan‘s work; and push the limits of what’s naughty and nice with nude punk angels crafted of wood by Casey Byrnes and Kim Clark‘s drawn celebrations of bawdy celebrity culture.

At Creative Growth’s annual Studio Sale, find the studio brimming with one-of-a-kind textiles, furniture, ceramics, rugs, mosaics, wood, drawings and paintings, prints, and much, much more. Treat yourself and your loved ones to artist-inspired gifts, such a our first ever Creative Growth Coloring Book; William Tyler and Juan Aguilera wearables for the whole family; and limited edition prints by Charles Smith.

Each purchase made gives back to Creative Growth and the artists who call our Oakland-based studio home, so take guilt-free delight in indulging at our annual Holiday Show and Studio Sale.

We are open for even more Holiday Shopping 10am-3pm on December 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd.

Please note, due to nearby construction, street parking around Creative Growth may be challenging. We suggest taking public transportation or giving yourself extra time to secure parking.
