April 4 – May 24, 2013 Opening Reception: THURSDAY APRIL 4 5PM – 8PM
Spring is here, and with it come vibrant patterns and hues, fresh fashion, and inspired creation. Join us for this year’s Home show, Pattern Response, and take a look at how Creative Growth artists explore the concept of pattern in a multifaceted way. Whether serving as a mediation of nature, a form of communication, or a blueprint for an object or piece of clothing, an artist’s response to pattern can reveal a lot about the individual’s aesthetic sensibility and how the underlying structures existing within the artist’s oeuvre can repeat across different media.
Kick off an exciting weekend of events with this much-anticipated annual exhibition, a favorite for Bay Area art collectors for more than 20 years. Featuring functional art objects and original works on paper by artists Dan Miller, Donald Mitchell, Charles Esseltine, Tony Pedemonte, Franna Lusson, Erin Punzel and more. The three-day event series continues with a special dinner and live performance in the studio during Friday’s Art Murmur, followed by the return of the Beyond Trend Runway Event & Fundraiser on Saturday celebrating the diverse visions from paper to the catwalk through the latest wearables made by Creative Growth artists.
