Mapping Fictions: Daniel Green • William Scott • Roger Swike • Joe Zaldivar

 July 9 – August 27, 2016

 RECEPTION: Saturday July 9, 7 – 10pm

The Good Luck Gallery is honored to present a show curated by Andreana Donahue and Tim Ortiz of Disparate Minds, a website that is dedicated to documenting progressive art studios. Their aim is to create a greater understanding of the importance of artists living with developmental disabilities in the context of the contemporary art world. Four artists will be on display, each of whom incorporates text into their work in a singular manner.

William Scott, whose work resides in the permanent collections of MOMA and Harlem’s Studio Museum, attends the Creative Growth studio in Oakland. He paints with an evangelical fervor, producing exuberant text-laden paintings of an idealized San Francisco. The Good Luck Gallery will be showing paintings that are part of an ambitious urban planning project – consisting of carefully detailed architectural drawings – that imagines the razing and subsequent renewal of his own socially marginalized neighborhood of Hunter’s Point.

William Scott along with the other artists from different Centers are united by an interest in the mapping and archiving of information. They have been selected as some of the finest currently working in Progressive art studios around the country. The show will be on display from July 9  to August 27, 2016.
