When: Fri., Aug. 5, 6-9 p.m. and Fri., Oct. 7, 6-9 p.m. 2016
August 5 - October 7, 2016 TOASTY features new work by Nancy Mizuno Elliott, Bianca Kolonusz-Partee + Stacey Bennis. Gathering around a toasty campfire to share life’s myriad stories is a fitting metaphor for the personal and narrative quality of new work by this trio of local artists. Common materials, (many which are repurposed), memories, experiences and objects from the natural world are translated into frank works that arouse both tactile and emotional feelings. Nancy Mizuno Elliott is exhibiting artwork that has been funded by the City of Oakland Cultural Funding Program.
