December 7 - March 2
Oakland Art Murmur First Friday Reception
December 7th, 6-9pm
Lighting up the winter months, Transmission Gallery presents Neon Legends, their second invitational exhibition of Neon Art.
Glass, neon, argon and electricity come together in this shining array of works deftly crafted by some of the best neon artists on the West Coast. The exhibition features floor standing, ceiling hung, wall mounted and 3D works of glass and light including work by LA neon artists Michael Flechtner, Linda Sue Price and Roxy Rose, as well as works by Bay Area neon artists Bill Concannon, Roger Daniells, Norman Moore, Shawna Peterson, and Bruce Suba, with unique contributions by artists Karl X. Hauser, Ruth Santee and Lauren Szabo.
Tapped as expert artisans restoring legendary signage, creating monumental installations and even, as Michael Flechtner has done, commemorating neon on a US Postage Stamp, the artists included here hold decades of knowledge, history and a deep understanding of the fragility and wonder of neon in their hands.
Stop by to bask in the brilliant color and experience the individual creative styles and vision that have emerged from their years of working within the careful constraints required by neon, from luminous and flowing line to flashy power to intimate steady glow.
