Event Details

The Tournesol Award recognizes one Bay Area-based painter each year with a generous cash prize and a year long studio residency.

Cate White, an artist whose life is intimately connected to the streets of West Oakland, paints portraits of friends, scenes from her experiences in Ferguson and a Louisiana prison, and archetypal characters involved in universal human struggle.

She calls painting “a tool for reconciliation.” Her image-rich, post-comic paintings complicate and critique the social structures that divide us-including race, gender, and class-and poignantly narrate individual and shared vulnerabilities, rendered here as undeniably fraught, humorous, heart-stopping, and unapologetically authentic.

  • Opening Reception: Friday, Oct 16, 5-7 pm

  • Exhibition Oct 9 – Nov 6 – Gallery hours: Wed-Sat, 12-5 pm
