Voss Gallery is proud to present “The Hood,” a solo exhibition of street art influenced paintings and sculptures by self-taught artist Gale Hart that boldly considers the conflicting desires of wanting to be seen while remaining in control of one’s identity.
The exhibition opens on Friday, November 8, 6-10PM and runs through Saturday, November 30, 2019. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Saturday, 12-6PM or by appointment. Voss Gallery programming is free and open to the public.
Known as Sacramento’s ‘Godmother of Contemporary Art,’ Hart has established an energetic 40-year career experimenting with new techniques and materials often incorporating sarcasm and humor in her work to exaggerate the absurd. Oversized spray paint cans are playfully marked to mimic a tagger’s touch. Face masks commonly worn by graffiti artists for anonymity are seemingly individualized as textured bronze and polished aluminum entities.
