San Francisco Arts Commission Includes Jerome’s Paintings
Come and check out the new San Francisco Arts Commission exhibition, TINY BUBBLES. This is the newest show to include Jerome Caja’s work, which opens on May 3rd and runs through August 19th at the San Francisco Art Commission Main Gallery (Veterans War Memorial Building, 401 Van Ness Avenue, across the street from City Hall). The group show features nine artists whose work is autobiographical, dark, imaginative, and humorous, and includes approximately 45 of Jerome’s pieces. Many of these Jerome paintings have not been exhibited publicly in decades, if at all. See the details below.
TINY BUBBLES: A group exhibition curated by Steven Wolf
Tiny Bubbles is a group exhibition curated by independent curator and former gallerist Steven Wolf. The show features nine artists known for producing dark and often funny narratives set in imaginary worlds filled with characters that mirror their own searches for meaning. "Like bubbles in a glass of champagne, the effect of sharing space with these dramatically different worlds will be one of prickly effervescence," says Wolf.
With projects ranging from a multimedia installation by media and video game artist Porpentine Charity Heartscape to a new video collaboration by regional luminaries J. Otto Seibold and Boots Riley to audio by the anonymous prankster Longmont Potion Castle, Tiny Bubbles is sure to challenge and delight visitors.
ARTISTS: Jerome Caja, Lisa Hanawalt, Porpentine Charity Heartscape, Longmont Potion Castle, Megan Reed, Kate Rhoades, J. Otto Seibold and Boots Riley, and V. Vale.
