Di Rosa began its 2012 exhibition season with the opening of CYCLE: New Works by Hung Liu. The work in this exhibit dates from the past five years, including art not previously exhibited, or seen in the Bay Area. Since 2003 Hung Liu has been working with master printer David Salgado at Trillium Graphics. Liu’s colleagues and students from Mills College in Oakland enjoyed food prepared by Winery Chefs and wine from the Hess Collection on a beautiful Saturday evening.
