Hard Art is Sometimes Soft @ The Frank

Yesterday I stopped by to see new member of Peninsula Women's Caucus for Art Tara de la Garza's curated exhibit "Hard Art is Sometimes Soft" at The Frank Gallery in Redwood City.  Again we have another member who has stepped outside the box and curated a must see!

The exhibit was quite interesting and I found the larger pieces with the mirrors attached intriguing asking the question "what do we see or need to see in life".  I do think my favorite was the ball of fabric that was used as a measurement to calculate the artist daughters movements. Personally, for me my works always have a strong personal tie and I liked very much the connection between mother and child.
The soft pink sculpture was also a favorite.  This sculpture seemed to parallel with my personal life right now.  If the oxygen is cut off life ends but with so little oxygen being pushed into the object it was full and dynamic, the soft pink color kept it from being overwhelming and gave a quiet glow that was soothing.
Thank you for curating such a interesting and out of the box exhibit Tara.

Please members stop by and take a look at this exhibit! If you contact Tara before hand she can meet you at this wonderful space, 2225 Broadway, Redwood City. Tara is also teaching a class this Saturday at The Frank click on the links for details or contact Tara.
