Rebeca Bollinger recently did some innovative printing on various unusual materials at Magnolia Editions (see this post for some photos of the print sessions); some of this work has been incorporated into her show "Chirality," currently on view at 2nd floor projects in San Francisco.

The show will run from May 8 to June 12, 2011 and is highly recommended; please see the 2nd floor projects website for hours and directions.

Squeak Carnwath - Naturally We, 2005
Oil and alkyd on canvas over panel; 80 x 80 in.

Meanwhile, "The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama" concludes its five-year tour at the San Antonio Museum of Art - an appropriate location since the museum also houses a fine collection of Himalayan Buddhist art.

The result of collaboration between the Committee of 100 for Tibet and the Dalai Lama Foundation, "The Missing Peace" was conceived as a unique opportunity to explore the idea of art as an interpretation of (and a catalyst for) peace. Prior to coming to San Antonio, the exhibition has been shown in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, San Francisco, Tokyo, Madrid, Miami, Sibiu (Romania), and Stockholm.

The show includes the above painting by Squeak Carnwath as well as work by Chuck Close, Donald & Era Farnsworth, Rupert Garcia, William Wiley, and many more.

William Wiley - Aegis for L. Johnson, 2008
Acrylic and charcoal on canvas; 61 x 81 3/4 inches

Speaking of William Wiley, his "Abstractions with Leaky Wicks," a show of new paintings and watercolors, is currently on view at Maxwell Davidson Gallery in New York. This show will run from May 3 to June 10, 2011; please check the Maxwell Davidson website to view the complete exhibition online or for visiting information.

Hung Liu & Jing Zhe - First Spring Thunder, 2011

And finally, Hung Liu's "First Spring Thunder," a show of new paintings, will run from May 30 to July 17, 2011 at Alexander Ochs Galleries Berlin in Beijing. The artist will be present at the opening on May 29th at 3 pm.
