In 2014, Bay Area artist Amber Imrie-Situnayake founded a quarterly online publication called Venison Magazine. Her vision was to highlight emerging artists whose experimentation with process and media created compelling work in an ever-evolving art culture. In fact, Venison Magazine created more than a platform for artist introductions; the publication created a family of artists with one common thread – the necessity to create. For this maiden voyage, we are gathering up the family for the very first Venison Magazine reunion.
Gathering: A Venison Magazine Retrospective is a multi-media, contemporary art exhibition consisting of 27 national and international Venison artists: Amabelle Aguiluz, Sarah Ammons, Zoe Childerley, Brian Donnelly, Kay Healy, Meline Höijer Schou, Amber Imrie-Situnayake, Bryan Kring, Skye Livingston, Bernie Lubell, Bonnie MacAllister, Spencer Merolla, Ankica Mitrovska, Jonathan Odom, Jennifer Pettus, Yulia Pinkusevich, Samantha Rausch, Rebecca Reeves, Danielle Schlunegger-Warner, Clare Szydlowski, Shannon Taylor, Jessica Tenbusch, Tyler Thrasher, Adriana Villagran, Chris Vogel and Amber Jean Young.
The exhibition runs from July 5 to August 31, 2017. Opening night: July 15, 5-7 PM. Venison Magazine founder Amber Imrie-Situnayake and exhibition curator Rebecca Reeves will be speaking opening night. Artist Talk: August 12, 5-7 PM by exhibiting artists: Amabell Aguiluz, Sarah Ammons, Kay Healy, Jonathan Odom, Samantha Rausch, Clare Szydlowski, Shannon Taylor and Adriana Villagran.
