By putting the spotlight on artists who raise awareness of issues surrounding mental illness through their work, the "Elements of Nature" show will elevate the public’s awareness of this important cause.
In nature there are different elements that make up all the ecosystems that we know. The Five elements of nature The main ones are earth, wood, fire, water and metal. This classification has its origin in traditional Chinese philosophy. They are tangible elements that are found in nature in its purest form. Philosophy has established a symbol on the complementary changing character that is present in all living beings and the environment that surrounds them.
The “Elements of Nature” exhibition will begin in September for our internal artists in Burlingame at Coconut Bay Restaurant. We will be looking for 10 new artists to join this exhibition in November for a month at our SF Gallery through Cafe. This exhibition will focus on various types of artwork which could include sculpture, painting, printmaking and traditional photography that convey compelling visual narratives by artists.
Ten new artists will be selected to exhibit in the group "Elements of Nature" exhibition in November. Our jury will select one winner from the twenty to have a future solo exhibition for five pieces for our San Francisco gallery.
Congratulations to the top 10 winning artists selected to join our "Elements of Nature" group exhibition!
