Katina Huston

Nothing Comes from Nothing
May 1 — 31, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 1, 5:30-7:30 PM

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Nothing Comes From Nothing, an exhibition of new ink on mylar drawings by San Francisco Bay Area artist Katina Huston.

It may be surprising to learn that, as an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, Terry St. John studied sociology, not the fine arts. By the time he fell in love with painting, he was a college senior and deep into the throes of his social science degree. But that didn’t stop him from pursuing art. He took lessons from a friend who was studying under Richard Diebenkorn at the California College of Arts and Crafts (now called the California College of the Arts) and immersed himself in an artistic social circle. St. John recalls how “above all else, I just wanted to paint paintings.… read more
