    Venice Institute of Contemporary Art (ViCA) and Porch Gallery Ojai in Association with the Sam Francis Foundation Present Water Works

    Curated by Juri Koll with Catalog Essays by Peter Frank & Shana Nys Dambrot

    Dates July 5 through August 1

    Featuring works by:

    The Dark Bob, Fatemeh Burnes, Sam Erenberg, Kio Griffith, Gloriane Harris, Juri Koll, Barbara Kolo, KuBO, Jayme Odgers, Kirk Pedersen, Kate Register, and Karrie Ross

    The artists in this show use watercolor, inks, and other liquid media for a variety of reasons - some love the risk of not being able to alter the result once it hits the paper. Others have a more formal reason for the process. Some use the medium as a contemplative, almost reverential experience, or for "quiet meditation or being present in the moment", as Shana Nys Dambrot says. All these motivations inspire these works, and engage the audience with the here and now, regardless of when the work was completed. Many of the artists have been influenced in some way by Japanese Sumi painters or modern artists such as Sam Francis.  As a special feature, original Sam Francis works will be on view during the opening at The Porch Gallery in Ojai, California.
