Davina Semo: ๐˜Š๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜™๐˜ฆ๐˜ง๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด highlights a new body of work by the San Franciscoโ€“based artist that considers the unique setting of Gallery 1 in relation to the landscape. Combining industrial materials and natural forms, it underscores the precarious state of the environment and offers a contemplative space for self-reflection.

Jim Drain: ๐˜”๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฃ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ is the Providence-based artistโ€™s first solo commission in Northern California. This fully interactive yearlong installation connects visitors with a lineage of countercultural dreamers who deployed craft and handwork to build a more democratic and inclusive world.

This series continues di Rosaโ€™s ongoing interest in supporting the production of new work, and is notable for expanding the organizationโ€™s programmatic scope to include artists working both in and outside of the Bay Area.
